A VARIETY OF CHRISTMAS BREADS
Oh yes, there are such things and not just the panettone from Italy and stollen from Germany which most of us are familiar with.
Traditional Christmas breads are enriched doughs. That means a combination of lashings of butter, eggs and plenty of flavour from dried fruits, citrus nuts and spices; all the tastes that we love and that evoke the smell of Christmas. The key is to keep them light and airy due to the use of yeast.
Dieting – well, you can forget that with these delights, but then, it is Christmas after all. Why not choose one with lots of fruit and class it as part of your five a day? ð
So, let’s have a tour of the world and see what delights await us.
