This is another great holiday bread to make that belonged to my mother. She sometimes served this one, and it is a very old recipe. This bread is good the first day, but better the second. You may use dates instead of raisins if you wish.
Grease an 8 x 5 inch loaf tin thoroughly. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a small bowl, beat the egg well. Mix in milk and melted butter or shortening.
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together into a mixing bowl. Add sugar, nuts, raisins and orange rind; mix well. Blend egg mixture into fruit and nut mixture until flour is just moistened. Turn batter into greased loaf tin, and allow to stand for 20 minutes.
Place pan in the center of the oven. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Turn bread out on wire rack, and cool for several hours before slicing.

Eating best breakfast to start the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a best way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and bring me energy to take on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before break .
Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is easy . Simply put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
