Little Christmas Cakes (recipe from my Mom) Mini panes de Pascua






The last recipe before Christmas.
I have other recipes ready but I have not put them because I prefer make Christmas recipes.

It's a Christmas cake my mom always does.
 This year she is very tired so I told her I  could make  it.
 The recipe gives for two medium breads, but I made one bread and seven small ones  and they were  really good and smell delicious.

It is  a really ancient recipe that was given her from  a friend many years ago.


I garnish them  with  white glaze and marzipan leaves  and candied cherries.

I whish you all my friends a really Merry Christmas !!











Ingredients


1 kilo all purpose flour (or five cups of 200 grams)
250 grams butter
6 eggs
1 cup of white sugar
25 grams fresh yeast
1/2 cup candied fruits
1/2 cup corinto raisins
1/2 cup golden raisins 
100 grams chopped waltnuts
1 cup  brandy or rum
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/ teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup of milk 




Method 

In a bowl put all the raisins and  candied fruits  and mix with brandy  or rum and let them soak about all night before.

Butter 2 round cake pans. Line bottom- with parchment cut to fit, and butter parchment.

Heat in the microwave 1/2 cup of milk with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger. Mix well and heat for a few minutes.
Set aside.

 Make a nest with the flour in the cupboard of the table ..
Add the sugar, butter, eggs,   fresh yeast (already dissolved in warm water, )mixed  and  finally add candied fruits and chopped nuts.
Make two balls and put in  round mold cake  or one big and others litte ones
Finally beat  one egg and some milk and brush the cakes before go to  oven.


Prehat oven to 180°c  (350 F) 

Bake about 1  hour and 15 minutes  or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

You can decorate  with glaze and some candied fruits.

  29. Querida Gloria, Se ven maravillosos los panes de tu mami, me imagino que ella ya no está para esos trotes, pero para eso te tiene a tí, y así es como las hijas heredamos las costumbres y recetas de nuestras madres. Venía a desearte todo lo mejor para el año que viene, de corazón espero que tengan un muy buen año tu y tu familia, abrazos y besos

    1. Cierto Pame. A mi mama le encanta cocinar en Navidad pero se agota.No puede estar mucho rato de pie. Asi que apechugo. Por suerte la Esperanza le gusta. De hecho hizo las galletas de Navidad. Cierto las recetas pasan de abuelas a madres e hijas y no solo las recetas el amor por la cocina.
      Te deseo un muy feliz año para ti y los tuyos. Y gracias por tus visitas siempre
      Me alegran el alma.
      Un abrazo.
