Default Christmas cake

Traditional christmas cake here, my daily job for now. :-) No, not to eat, to produce of course.



Ingredients: butter, flour, yeast, raisins, almonds, walnuts, candied orange peel, candied lemon peel, sugar, rum, white wine, more butter, milk and a few secret spices.

That looks similar to what we in the USA call "Fruit Cake" which is also traditional
at Christmas... We usually don't put frosting on them though...

The image looks great...!

Fruit cake is on us something else, as this picture shows. Main ingredient here are dried fruits such as pears, figs, dates, apples, candied lemon peel, candied orange peel and raisins, mixing with a baked bread dough from rye and wheat and of course rum and whitewine. :-)

The first one looks more like stollen, pardon my spelling.
Our, US, version of Fruit cake is a dense pound cake pan size of candied fruit, little dough, nuts, rum, and is basically inedible...to most of us.
It becomes a 'symbol' to give and regive at holiday time.

Personally I love 'stollen' and Panetone. Yum with a cup of rich coffee.
might do that today.

Jugg I have no idea where you work, but I am thinking of filling out an application!!! Frank

(great shots of your products! I am so disappointed that you won't give us your secret ingredients, as that is what is probably missing in our "fruitcake recipes!!!)

Ps. When I get a fruitcake from someone they usually get it back the next year, it usually has not lost any of its supposed flavor (since they have almost no flavor to start with),and they are made so dense that I don't think they ever ever ever spoil....LOL

and in the cake on the second image there is additional this one:

It is written in German so you need to translate it.
