Klöben Hamburger Art (Sweet Bread from Hamburg)

This is one of my maternal Grandmother's recipes. It won me the Adult Prize at the breadmaking competition during our community's annual Stuff of Life festival. A bow to my Grandmother!

This is the original recipe. Will veganize soon.

1 kg plain flour
50 g fresh or 4 tsp dried fast-action yeast
150g sugar
475ml lukewarm milk or a mix of milk and water
125g softened butter
1 pinch salt
1 egg, beaten
100g raisins or sultanas
100g candied peel

Mix the flour, yeast and sugar. Add milk, butter, salt and egg and knead into a dough. Work in raisins and peel. Allow to rise, covered, in a warm place, until doubled in size.
Shape into a loaf and put on a greased or lined baking sheet. Allow to rise again.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Bake for about an hour.
You could divide the dough into two loaves to reduce baking time.
