Dissolve yeast in lukewarm milk: add melted butter. Sift flour with the
salt. Add milk to flour. Knead until smooth, allow to rise in covered
bowl in a warm place, about 1 hour. Soak pears and prunes overnight in cold
water. Cook in the soaking water about 20 minutes, drain off water and put
fruit through a meat grinder. Add coarsely chopped nuts to the fruit

around the fruit loaves. Fold the ends under and place on metal baking
sheet with the seam on the bottom. Prick several times with a fork. Allow
to rise in a warm place for one hour. Brush with egg yolk and bake in a
pre-heated 340F oven for about one hour.
