Ryetest week 7B, A treat for the holidays
Zelten di Natale, or just Zelten; a popular fruit bread in South Tyrol, an alpine region in northern Italy.
That's not surface topping, the loaves are loaded with fruit and spices fore and aft, and top to bottom. Yes, there's a little bit of rye dough too.
I'm saving these to serve at our annual holiday dinner, but I've nibbled a little. These are definitely not the dreaded annual Fruit Cake from aunt Jane!
