Here's my easy German Sweet Roll recipe, raisin buns, aka Rosinenbrötchen, that's an easy one to include among your holiday baking recipes.
Using a traditional method of making this yeast rolls recipe, you can also use the dough to make a fruit loaf.
Why not double the recipe and make a loaf and some rolls? Freeze some for later use.
If you decide to make the loaf, it can either be baked on a baking sheet or in a 12" X 4" loaf pan.
The instructions for the loaf are in the Hints section at the bottom of the recipe.
If you're a bread machine fan, you can just add the ingredients, minus the nuts, raisins, and lemon peel. Set the machine to 'dough' and add these remaining ingredients at the first 'signal'. Once the dough is done, remove and form it.
Although a bit time consuming, this is definitely worth making. It's traditional German Easter food - it's even fun for the kids to make the rolls from kneading the dough to forming the rolls.
