The is a yearly Christmas treat from The Organic Collection. Although now in a smaller size (250g) than a few years ago, this is still a really lovely moist enriched bread with marzipan and fruit. Also there is candied fruit and rum which add the extra special aroma and taste. It's quite addictive. One year we had some left after Christmas and made the most amazing bread and butter pudding with it, so now this is a regular feature at Christmas, usually Boxing Day, as a pudding.
Wheat flour, sultanas 30%, butter, whole milk, almonds, candied orange and lemon peel 7% (orange peel, lemon peel, corn syrup), marzipan 3%, raw cane sugar, yeast, spring water, rum, sea salt, spices. Decoration: Butter, raw cane sugar, (dextrose, corn starch, vegetable fat, vanilla extraction)
The Steiner philosophy runs like a rich seam through the company's processing philosophy with a higher than expected manual participation in the production chain. Most amazingly, outside the factory stands a big water tower that brings spring water up from a well deep into the ground and then runs it down a series of granite steps, ending with a spiral. This strange structure invigorates and oxygenates the water in line with bio-dynamic principles - and it is this water used in the breads and cakes made by the bakery.
