Is it just me or does my title sound just a tad morbid?
Anyways, since we were on the subject of yeast breads coming from my previous post, I was contemplating on doing some sort of Christmas yeast bread that is not a panettone. It wasn’t until I caught this very interesting-looking wreath bread on the cover of a local food magazine that I decided I would. It’s a little bit like a panettone in that it makes use of dried fruits, some of which inevitably end up within the bread. However half of the dried fruits do end up speckled all over the top as in bright red decorations, which gives this wreath bread a definitely more festive appearance compared to a panettone. Even my very traditional grandmother who doesn’t like anything that is not Chinese commented on how festive this bread looks in between bites. So I suppose I could declare this a success!
