The vacations are an exquisite time to make scrumptious meals and share them with family and friends. Via the years, I’ve celebrated with nice buddies and discovered rather a lot about meals in several Latin nations. This recipe is impressed by an exquisite vacation-meals-share occasion at a earlier job some years in the past.

Pan de pascua is a Chilean cake historically eaten across the holidays. It’s a candy, spongy cake made with spices, candied fruit, raisins, and nuts comparable to almonds and walnuts. The cake is just like the Italian Panettone. Some like so as to add just a little rum to the dough. On this recipe, we soak the candied fruit in rum as an alternative. I additionally added dried cranberries for an added style of the season.

That is the right cake to have with a pleasant cup of scorching chocolate on a chilly vacation morning.
