Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund

Don’t join us for our year-end fundraising event!

This year, instead of asking you to don your fancies and march through the cold to yet another year-end fundraiser, we invite you to cozy up to your own life for an evening.

Try our recipes, take some time for yourself, and experience some warm fuzzies by supporting abortion rights in your community. The Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund helps people living in or traveling to eastern Massachusetts get the abortions they need. Over 1,000 people a year reach out to us for assistance.

Because of you, we’re here to answer the phone when they call.
Because of you, we’ll be here next year, too.
Please, enjoy your evening at home.
And please…give generously.

Julekake: Norwegian Christmas Bread

Yields: Two loaves
From the kitchen of: EMA Fund volunteer Sarah Morton


  • 1.5 liters of flour
  • 250 grams of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of cardamom
  • 2 deciliters of raisins
  • 1 deciliter of candied citrus peel (lemon and/or orange)
  • 2 packets dry yeast
  • 400 grams of melted butter (about 3 and a half sticks)
  • 5 deciliters of milk


Mix dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, cardamom) together in a very large bowl. Prepare your yeast by mixing two packets of dry yeast with 1 deciliter of lukewarm water and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Let sit for two minutes. Mix wet ingredients (butter, milk, yeast mixture) together in a bowl. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Knead with your hands for about ten minutes or using the dough hook on your standmixer. Keep extra flour and milk nearby if you need to adjust the texture of your dough. It’s ready when it comes together in a ball without leaving bits of itself behind in the bowl. Cover the ball of dough in the ball and let it rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes. Put 2 deciliters of raisins and 1 deciliter of candied citrus peel (lemon and/or orange) chopped to about the same size as raisins aside. When the dough ball has risen by at least 50%, knead the raisins and candied citrus peel into the dough until it is thoroughly incorporated. Then cut the dough in half and shape it into two round balls. Set the balls on a buttered baking sheet in a warm place (on top of your preheating oven, perhaps?) and cover with a kitchen towel. Let rise for 45 more minutes. Brush each loaf with egg white or milk. Leave the loaves on the cookie sheet and put into preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until quite brown. Remove from oven and immediately set loaves on to cooling racks. Don’t cut into them until they are completely cooled!
