Place the flour in a large bowl and crumble the yeast over it. Sprinkle with a pinch of sugar and add a tablespoon of warm milk. Cover and let rest 1 hour in a warm place.
Heat the butter and milk in a saucepan over low heat till melted.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture, milk and butter mixture, almonds, candied peel, salt, sugar and egg yolks. Mix until a soft dough forms, then fold in the sultanas. Cover bowl and let stand in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has risen to twice the original size.
Shape dough into a loaf, then place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.
Bake in the oven at 190 C / Gas 5 for about 45 to 60 minutes.
After baking spread with 2 tablespoons melted butter and dust with icing sugar while the loaf is still hot.
Excellent recipe. THe instructions and quantities are not exactly the same as those of the video, and I followed the video. Tasty, ridiculously easy and it yields two big loaves. I would say it is true it serves 15. - 24 Dec 2012
