3. Stir in the remaining milk, along with the eggs, remaining sugar, the orange zest, salt, and cinnamon. Add 5 cups of flour and gently mix, adding additional small amounts until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. (You may not need to use the full 6 cups of flour.)

1. Soak the raisins in the liquor heated up almost to the boiling point.
2. Melt the butter and add it to the milk. Crumble in the yeast and leave for about 15 minutes for the mixture to foam up slightly.
3. Add the flour, sugar, salt and the cardamom and knead by hand or in a standing mixer with a dough hook attachment. Continue kneading until it’s smooth, stretchy and bounces off the sides of the bowl or stops sticking to your hands.
4. Drain the raisins - there should be hardly any liquid left - and add them to the dough with the citrus peel. Mix them gently in – even if you’re using the mixer it’s still best to turn the dough out onto a work surface and fold the fruit in by hand to make sure it is evenly distributed.

1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, dissolve the yeast in the warm water and let stand 5 minutes until foamy. Fit the mixer with the paddle attachment and blend in the milk, sugar, butter, salt, cardamom and eggs. Mix well. (Butter chunks will float to the surface here and it will look all kinds of wrong– just go with it). Stir in 3 1/2 cups of the flour and beat well. Stir in half of the flour and beat well. Add another 3 1/2 cups of flour, mixing to make soft dough. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
2. Fit the mixer with the dough hook attachment. Set a timer and for 10 minutes and knead the dough on low speed. Add the remaining flour 1/4 cup at a time intermittently until a smooth, satin, elastic dough forms. You may not have to use all of the flour. Stop the mixer and add the fruit. Knead again at medium speed until the fruit is well dispersed throughout the dough.
3. Lightly grease a large bowl (or wash, dry and grease the mixing bowl) and place the dough inside. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled. Punch down the dough and cover again. Let rise until doubled in bulk.
4. Grease three 8 or 9-inch round cake pans (I used two 8’s and a 7). Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead briefly (3-4 turns) until the dough is not sticky to touch. Cut the dough into three equal parts. Shape each piece into a rough ball. Using both hands, pick up a dough ball and using your fingertips, push the sides of the dough underneath the ball, tucking the ends underneath and rotating the ball as you work. Keep repeating the motion until the dough comes together in an even round shape (see video for technique). Place each dough piece in a prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to stand until doubled.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make Julekake in a bread machine?

Because Julekake is one of our most requested recipes, we knew you'd love a version you could make in your bread machine. In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in warm milk, sugar, shortening, salt, cardamom, egg, raisins, fruitcake mix and 1 1/2 cups of the flour.

What is a Norwegian Julekake?

This Norwegian julekake –Christmas bread–smell richly of cardamom and is studded with raisins or any type of candied fruit you like. As I wrote in my book Modern Scandinavian Baking: A Cookbook of Sweet Treats and Savory Bakes:

What is julekage (Yule bread)?

“The bread may also be known as Julekaka or Julekake, which means 'Yule Bread' in Norwegian. Like many holiday breads, Julekage involves candied fruit and nuts, and it is heavily spiced. The traditional spice used in Julekage is cardamom, although nutmeg, cinnamon, and other flavors may be used as well.

Can you freeze Julekake bread?

The julekake recipe makes two loaves. They can be stored at room temperature for a few days inside a plastic bag or wrapped in foil. Once cool, you can also freeze the bread; thaw loaves at room temperature, and heat gently for a few minutes in the oven. Gather the ingredients. In a large bowl, mix the yeast with warm water to dissolve.
