As we enter the last quarter of the year, our attention turns to Christmas… Yes, it still may be some way away, but for our festive (and boozy) cakes, it’s all about the preparation months in advance.
This sees a cake mixture comprising fruits, nuts and spices being soaked in brandy. Over the course of 90 days or so, the cakes infuse with the alcohol, giving them a moist texture, rich flavor and a little extra kick to make things all the merrier!
Following German traditions, this is done months before ‘the big day’ - allowing all this goodness to macerate together, slowly creating this delicious Christmas bread that only gets better with age. Look out for our stollen bread in December at the Zing Bakery, which will also offer a selection of festive hampers & Christmas goodies.
Stay tuned to find out when and where you can taste our traditional Christmas cakes.
Available at Zing as of December 2022
