Ingredients
  Flour 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Active dry yeast 1 Tablespoon
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Unsalted butter 4 Tablespoon
  Egg 1
  Almond extract 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chopped mixed candied fruit 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Golden raisins 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped almonds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Confectioners' icing 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (adjust quantity as needed)
Directions

1 Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, and yeast in mixing bowl. Heat milk and butter to hot (120°-130°F). Add egg, almond extract, and milk mixture to flour mixture. Mix thoroughly.
2 Stir in candied fruit, raisins, and almonds.
3 Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth€”about 10 minutes.
4 Place in greased bowl, turning to coat top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double€”about 1 hour. Punch down dough.
5 Divide into 3 pieces and place in 3 well-greased 1-pound coffee cans. (Be sure, however, that each coffee can is no more than half full.) Be sure to grease the grooves well.
6 Cover; let rise in warm place until double€”about 1 hour.
7 Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 45€”55 minutes or until done. Cool on wire rack.
8 If desired, frost tops with Confectioners' Icing.
