Paasbrod's recipe

Dutch bread for Easter In culinary traditionsOf different peoples, Easter baking is of special importance. This is not a simple bakery product, but a sacrifice offered to God, so it must be special. In the European cuisine there are a lot of different Easter pastries: Russian cakes, Polish grandmothers and poppy-seeds, Italian pasteur, Greek chureks, Finnish paiasiasleip, English cross-buns. But I want to pay special attention to the Dutch Paasbrod. This is a kind of sweet bread with currants or raisins and filling with almond paste. Previously, sacred bread could only be baked by nuns and monks, and only on certain church holidays. Now these strict requirements are not respected, and each landlady can bake pasbrod at any time. If you want to timed it to Easter, then the Paasbrod stove is better for a day or two before the holiday. The Dutch themselves eat it for breakfast on Easter Sunday, cut into thick slices and smeared with home-made butter. The main difference between pasbroda and the usual cake is that the contents of nuts, candied fruits and dried fruits exceed the content of flour.
