6 cups flour
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped blanched almonds
Powdered sugar frosting
2 tablespoons yeast
3/4 cup mixed candied fruit
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup raisins
3 eggs
Maraschino cherries

Mix together in a large bowl, 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Combine milk, water, eggs and butter in a small dutch oven and heat over low heat until warm. Add liquid gradually to dry mixture, stirring continually. Add remainder of flour (enough to make a soft dough) and mix thoroughly. Knead for 8 to 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in bulk. Combine nuts, candied fruits and raisins. Punch down dough and add nuts and dried fruit mixture. Divide dough into equal parts, then further into three rolls. Weave the three rolls together and place around the edges of a greased 14 inch dutch oven. Cover and cook for about 45 minutes with 14 coals on top and 6 coals on bottom. Garnish as desired with powdered sugar frosting and cherries.
