    KCShell's Note:

    This recipe was marked with a big, red X so I am assuming this was the recipe that my grandmother used every Christmas. It came from a book called Norwegian Recipes, copyright 1947! I have not personally made this, but I ate plenty of it when I was a kid. Will start the tradition this year! It calls for letting dough sit out overnight in a warm place. I might mix early in the morning and then finish it by bedtime.

      Delicious. This is just as a julekake should be. My adaptions: Since no one likes the citron I swap them for apricots and chopped cranberries. I soaked the fruits while the dough was rising. Also I cut a bit on the flour to get an even richer bread. Made a great gift.
