Add to the flour mixture. Bake for 1 1/2 hours. Cool on a rack.

BISHOP'S BREAD A Christmas favorite.

1/4 pound of butter
1/2 cup of icing sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup of all purpose flour
2 ounces of chocolate chips
2 ounces of almonds
2 ounces of chopped figs
1 ounce of raisins
2 ounces of candied chopped fruit
1 tablespoon of baking powder.

Mix together butter, half of the sugar and yolks. Beat up a snow from the egg whites, add the other half of the sugar and finish the snow.

Fold together into the egg yolk mixture half of dry ingredients together with the half of the snow and finish adding rest of the dry ingredients together with the other half of the snow.

Bake in a bread loaf pan. Butter and flour your baking pan before putting the mixture in.

Fill the pan about 3/4 full as the mixture will rise.

Bake at 350 for 45 min. to one hour.

To make sure the Biskupský chlebícek is baked to perfection insert a toothpick in the middle of the bread.

It should come out clean and your bread is done. Cool it before slicing. It can be sprinkled with icing sugar for festive effect
