Sweet bread for holiday morning

What to put on festive table? Bouquet of still green twigs, which you pick on a walk, a bowl of nuts, something that warms the throat (tea, hot chocolate, grog)? And something sweet, it can also be bread.

Sweet bread is in fact, a true classic during the winter holidays. You can bake in stock, it can withstand the cold, like in the pantry, up to two weeks. Wrap it in a baking paper, and then put in plastic container or bag, aluminum foil also works. Thin slices of rich with fruit sweet bread, that you can cut it all the way to the second year. The British would say that it is the very nice catch with a cup of black tea. Christmas morning could be a real opportunity to do so.

Sweet bread with dried apricots


  • 3 tablespoons (60 g) whole wheat flour
  • 3 tablespoons ground almonds
  • 160g dark brown sugar
  • 260 g raisins
  • 200 g dried apricots
  • 70 g chopped various nuts 
 (walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons apricot jam


We bake Sweet bread in a narrow model, lined with baking paper so you don’t have to use any fat. The dough does not need baking powder or other loosener resources.

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees (302 Fahrenheit). Select ten approximately equal sized apricots and finely chop the others. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, raisins, ground almonds, chopped nuts and chopped apricots. Whisk eggs and pour into a bowl. With a spoon, stir until the mass is not connected. At first it will seem impossible, but it is. Put the dough into the mold and smoothly align and tamp the edges. We halved apricots and put them on the top of the dough. Place in a preheated oven and bake for 1 hour.

After the bread is baked, we coat it with thin layer of apricot jam and leave it to cool in the model. Only completely cooled cut into thin slices. If properly stored, for example, wrapped in aluminum foil is long-lasting (up to two weeks) and will become even better tasting, so it makes sense to bake it before the holidays.
