Are you looking for Christmas baking recipes? Do you want to bake a traditional Christmas cake and need a recipe? You have found the perfect place.
There are so many Christmas baking recipes that it makes picking one quite difficult. I hope that this page will help you in making this decision.
I have to confess that I used to bake only German Christmas cookies, Linzer torte, and maybe a Poppy seed strudel or a Stollen for Christmas. Christmas in Germany is the biggest baking time of the year, and it starts in the last week of November where all the “good housewives” bake like crazy 10 different types of cookies.
German cookies are great since they are mostly easy to make and they store well. They are a great easy Christmas dessert since you can prepare them way ahead of time.
Poppy seed strudel or a Stollen with the right recipe and good instructions is easy even for a beginner baker. So, since I wanted to devote more time to the main meal at Christmas, I only did what I considered as easy Christmas baking - something that can be done ahead of time and is not too complicated.
However, since I needed to write abouttraditional Christmas cakes from other parts of the world, I had to try many different recipes. I have to say that this experience was an eye opener to all different kind of delicious Christmas desserts.
Because of this website, the Yule log found its way to my Christmas table and my family became a big fan of mince pies. I heard of mince pies the first time when I read Harry Potter and they were sitting at the back of my mind for a while. After trying them out, I have to agree with Ron and Harry. These little treats are bliss.
Another recipe that I enjoy very much is the cranberry upside down cake. I have to admit, my kids don’t like it. My husband and I are actually quite glad, since that leaves more for us. I make this recipe not necessarily for Christmas, but around that time.
I really hope that you will enjoy all these different Traditional Christmas cake and dessert recipes.
