This last week, Gabe and I made our first loaves of Julekake.  It was something that I thought was going to be very hard for some reason.  It is time consuming with having to knead it several times, but making the dough was easy enough.

Makes 3 smallish loaves

2 cups lukewarm milk (to dissolve the yeast)
1 cup sugar
1 t salt
1 1/2 t ground cardamom (next time I make it I want to use 2- 2 1/2 t)
Mix above ingredients
Add a tiny bit under 1 T yeast
Add & mix in 2 eggs
4 T soft (or warm (not hot) melted) butter
Add & stir in 1/2 cup (or a little more) citron
1 cup raisins
7 cups flour
Mix with spoon and then with hands.  Knead and cover and let rise twice.  On greased cookie sheet shape into 3 loaves, cover and let rise.  Bake at 350* for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.  Brush with melted butter. 

Enjoy!  It is delicious!
