It’s time for our next cooking around the world adventure and Mr. N is taking us to South America – Chile to be exact. Now since the holiday season is upon us, we also thought we’d make our first Chilean recipe something a little festive. Would you believe we actually found a Christmas recipe right off the bat – the Pan de Pascua. Now Pascua actually translates to Easter in Spanish, but in Chile they use Navidad and Pascua interchangeably. So today’s recipe is a Chilean Christmas Cake!
The cake comes together quickly and bakes for about an hour. The end result is moist, full of delicious seasonal flavors and has tasty bites of fruit and nuts. I have to say I was actually pretty surprised at how much I enjoyed this cake. I’m not a big cake eater (cookies and pies are more my thing), but this recipe really kind of won me over. It was a 4 spooner for me.
I for one am really looking forward to it. And in the meantime, I’m looking forward to finally finishing my Christmas shopping! (Am I the only one totally behind?!)
We’ll be back next week with a little monkey business. Until then, we wish all those celebrating a very Merry Christmas! May you have a joyous day filled with love, laughter and delicious food. We are so grateful for everyone that checks into our little space of the blogosphere, for those that take the time to leave us a note, and for those who have become friends over the past few years. Thank you. Mike, Mr. N and Miss A and I appreciate every little bit of it. Merry Christmas!
