In a small saucepan, heat milk and 1/4 cup butter until warm (120° to 130°).
In a large mixer bowl, stir 1 cup flour, sugar, yeast and salt. At low speed, slowly beat in warm liquid. At medium speed, beat for 2 minutes. Add 1 cup flour and egg beat for 2 minutes. By hand, stir in additional flour to make a soft dough.
On floured surface, knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl turn to grease top. Cover let rise in a warm place,free from drafts, until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours. Roll into a 14 x 9-inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter. Top with filling. Starting at narrow end, roll tightly like a jelly roll. Pinch seam, tuck under ends and place,seam-side down, in a greased 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Cover let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 35 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove loaf from pan and cool on a wire rack.
Candied Fruit Filling: Stir together 1/2 cup candied fruit and peel mix, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon shredded orange rind and 1 teaspoon ground mace or cinnamon.
