mini holiday bread loaves

I found these on pinterest, sorry don't remember what site.  I made these in mini loaf form.  I really liked them but most of the family didn't because, READY for had fruit in it.  LOL  even one of the dogs, who is a big carb bread lover eat the bread and spit out the fruit...too funny.  I didn't make the glaze for these.  I will make it again even though they didn't really like it.  I know my friend Patsy and her hubby will enjoy it so will make it next time I go there.
    3 cups bread flour
    4½ tsp Red Star Active Dry Yeast
    ¼ cup sugar
    1 tsp salt
    ¾ cup milk
    ½ cup water
    2 TBSP shortening
    ½ cup candied fruits, chopped
    ½ cup walnuts or pecans, chopped

    1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
    1 tsp butter or margarine, softened
    1 to 2 TBSP hot water or milk

    In large mixer bowl, combine 1½ cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. In saucepan, heat milk, water and shortening until warm (120-130°F; shortening does not need to melt). Add to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in candied fruits, nuts and remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover; let rise in warm place until light and double, about 30 minutes.

    Stir down batter. Spoon into one greased 9x5- inch bread pan or four well-greased 20-ounce cans. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double, a out 30 minutes. Bake at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan or cans; cool. Drizzle with Glaze and garnish with additional fruit and nuts, if desired.

    *You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) Yeast in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes.
