The brightened fruits are optional. Some people prefer homemade bread with raisins, walnuts and almonds. I like the polished fruits very much, but you have to take it into account.

When removing the homemade sweet bread, let stand at room temperature(do not place in refrigerator). Once it has lost its heat, remove it carefully, turn it and with a strong blow it should come out.

Once inserted into the oven, do not reopen its lid for at least 40 minutes.
