Nothing screams Christmas more than the combination of walnuts and cranberries and this Christmas baking recipe is surprisingly simple. Baked in a Dutch oven this bread is a lot like a simple sour dough says Frida, best served with homemade butter or good a good cheese she continues.
Ingredients (for 1 loaf):
Gently shape the dough to keep the air in.
Slice the Christmas bread to reveal the cranberries and walnuts inside.
The carrot cake is a delightful shade of yellow thanks to the saffron, it also adds a new dimension to your Christmas bake – how festive!
The carrot cake is a classic that works all year round but has Frida shared with us her Scandinavian Christmas version of this classic by adding a saffron to the batter and a vanilla frosting, the literal icing on the cake! It is traditional to bake with saffron at Christmas time here in Sweden and this spiced Christmas cake embodies everything we love about baking at Christmas time here in Scandinavia.
Vörtbröd is a classic bread that is a must on and Swedish Christmas table to accompany the Christmas ham!
Vörtbröd is very popular Christmas baking recipe here in Sweden. Similar to an English malt loaf, the bread gets its name from the brewer's wort that is used to give the bread its distinctive malty flour. Brewer’s wort is a liquid extracted from the mashing process during the brewing of beer.You will find vörtbröd on the Julbord (Christmas table), served with eggs, anchovies, pickled herring or Christmas ham. The bread is traditionally made with raisins, but you could also choose to mix in nuts or other dried fruit depending on your preference.
Ingredients (for 2 loaves):
Put the dough in a long narrow baking tin that is covered with baking paper to get the bread out of the form more easily when serving.
The Dorres mulled wine set with snowflakes on it is perfect to have for mulled wine.
Baking brings back many memories from Frida’s childhood but is also her therapy at Christmas.
A cake tin like this one from Nordic Ware is perfect to give to a baking fan as a Christmas present!
