Inspired by the Advent calendar my mom made for our family, I cobbled together this one for my family.
A family recipe – Bunten Stuten appears to mean Colourful (sweet) Bread, similar recipes in English are called Fruit Bread. I don’t know how true this is to Bunten Stuten in Germany, instead of yeast, baking soda is used to leaven. This was a Christmas breakfast tradition growing up in our house. As I’m not a fan of raisins, I’ve swapped them for glace cherries and candied ginger.
