2/3 cup warm milk
2 tablespoons butter, softened
7 eggs
1/2 cup mixed candied fruit, chopped
1/4 cup blanched almonds, chopped
1/2 teaspoon anise seed
vegetable oil

milk and butter; beat 2 minutes on med. Add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup
flour; beat 2 minutes on high. Stir in fruit, nuts and aniseed;
mix well. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn

half; roll each piece into a 24" rope. Loosely twist ropes together;
place on a greased baking sheet and form into a ring. Pinch ends
together. Gently split ropes and tuck eggs into openings. Cover
and let rise until doubled, about 30 min. Bake at 350 degrees for
30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan; cool on a
wire rack.
