  • Dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add ½ cup of flour and beat batter until smooth. Cover and set in warm place for about an hour.
  • Beat eggs, salt, sugar and lemon rind. Stir mixture into batter, add remaining flour and knead, gradually adding melted butter until smooth and elastic. Cover and let rise in a warm place until it has doubled its size ? about 2 hours.
  • Knead dough adding the raisins and nuts as evenly as possible. Put in a buttered deep round baking dish about 12 inches in diameter or form two rounds and place them on a buttered cookie sheet. Cover with a towel and leave in a warm place until almost doubled.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes.
