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 !!
1 kilo all purpose flour (or five cups of 200 grams)
250 grams butter
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
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.
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.

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 besosReplyDelete
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.Delete
Te deseo un muy feliz año para ti y los tuyos. Y gracias por tus visitas siempre
Me alegran el alma.
How nice that you could take over for your mother Gloria. These are beautiful--it looks like you've been making them your whole life!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Inger !Delete
What nice always you are !
Happy New year for you and yours !
Anyway always I enjoy baking my mom's recipes.
Dear Gloria, Very delicious looking and very pretty. Happy New Year. xoxo CatherineReplyDelete
