Now I get a couple of hours a week to myself, aside from working, I like to try and make a little bit of time for me, even if that means just having a cup of tea and reading a book for 20 minutes or catching up on some TV without the children around.
Admittedly I do make this kind of a lunch break so it’s only fitting that I have something to eat, right? Nothing too heavy but something to tide me over until tea time. I hate to state the obvious but the festive season is drawing closer and closer and, of course, all the sweet treats that you’d normally expect around this time of year are making an appearance.
Elizabeth Draper is the founder of ‘ElizabethDBakes’. Based in South-East London this award winning baker creates and bakes in a dedicated gluten-free space which is great news for those who have this particular intolerance. It’s also great for people who just love cake!
One particular product that is typically only brought out around Christmas is Stollen. It’s traditionally German and is usually made with chopped candied fruit, dried fruit, nuts and spices; obviously there are lots of variations but one thing that’s unanimous is that it’s incredibly tasty.
ElizabethDBakes Cranberry, Pistachio & Orange Stollen
This particular Stollen by ElizabethDBakes is the epitome of Christmas. It has the cranberry, fresh orange and cardamom and has a wonderfully soft, melt in your mouth marzipan centre. It’s basically like Christmas has exploded on your palate; follow this with a cup of tea in a Christmas mug and you are well on your way to enjoying the festive season.
The Stollen comes in a double layered gift box should you want to give it as a gift, or it’s ready to eat as soon as you get it.Each batch is cooked fresh and because it contains no artificial preservatives, it’s best enjoyed within six weeks from when it’s made.
If you do choose to give it as a gift you can add a message for the recipient. It’s currently available for £16.50 which includes postage on the ElizabethDBakes website.
Or, if you want something to unwrap when you feel like it then why not try these individual Stollen bars. You get 6 for £18.00 including postage!
