REVIEW: recipe rating
I used to make this recipe for about 100 people every Christmas. Since I spent days making it only as gifts, I renamed it Christmas bread. Everybody loved it and it is even better if you substitute the raisins for cranberries. Makes it very festive looking. I first wrap the loaf snugly in clear plastic wrap. Then I wrap the loaf again in stiff clear florist wrap. I tie a little piece of raffia at each end and sort of poof the end of the florist wrap. Then right in the middle I paste a gift tag. It's really beautiful given this way. The nuts and cranberries and raisins show through the clear wrap. So glad I found this recipe again. Going to start being Christmas Bread Lady again this holiday season.

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

Your starter needs to begin with 1 cup. Then follow the directions. You may freeze the starter but give it 3 hours at room temperature before using. ( this is according to one of the friendship breads on line)
The bread is awesome. Good luck and enjoy I know we have.

I'm not sure but I think this recipe was going around in the early 90's,it was called "Herman".What I would like to know is how to maintain the starter,do I continue to add and subtract from it?

Very easy, super moist, and delicious! I gave our starters and directions out with a sample of the finished bread, and it has been a real hit. My 5 year old did most of the work.
