Currant recipes (45)

    This is my fathers recipe for authentic Dutch currant bread (krentenbrood). He was a professional baker and made these loaves a lot! This recipe makes two regular sized loafs, or one long loaf. If you decide to half the recipe, bake the bread for 30 minutes instead of 45.

    A favourite from the North, these are best eaten straight from the oven. Using shop-bought pastry makes them easy.

    These hot cross buns are prepared in a bread machine but baked in the oven for a nicer finish. The egg yolk wash gives these a golden, glossy top. The icing is simply made from sugar and milk.

    This cake is a rich, moist fruit cake, perfect at Christmas. Try icing with marzipan for a more festive touch. This recipe is started in late November so as to let it mellow before Christmas.
