I am happy to participate in MKB Christmas in Different Lands this year. The main topic this year is a favorite Christmas recipe.
Chile has several food traditions around the Holidays and all of them are yummy. My favorite one is Pan de Pascua.
People celebrate Christmas eve (Nochebuena) on December 24th and Christmas day (Navidad) on December 25th. Children open the presents on Christmas Day, a few minutes after 12am.
In Chile, people greet each other saying Feliz Navidad or Feliz Pascua for Merry Christmas. Although Pascua means Easter, people use this word during Easter and Christmas time. Therefore we have Pan de Pascua for Navidad. Just to give you an idea, Pan de Pascua is similar to Panettone or Fruit Cake.
I can't take all the credits for this post since the recipe is not mine, the last time I made Pan de Pascua I took the recipe from En Mi Cocina Hoy, which is a bilingual blog about Chilean food.
I loved the way they tasted and I made enough to give them as present for my dear friends and neighbors.
If the recipe doesn't turn out the way you want, you can always get pre-made Pan de Pascua from this store here in the USA, but you know homemade recipes are better, right?
