We just couldn't bring ourselves to bake this one. Sara hates cooked fruit. Neither of us likes fruit cakes. At all. And we're both well versed in bread baking, so we didn't feel the "dare" motivation this month.
Instead, we baked and cooked up a bunch of other holiday treats including pierogies (Sara) and buckeyes (Erica) and various cookies (both of us).
However, we want to continue our daring baking into 2011, so we're posting this little blurb to make it under the wire in 2010. We sincerely hope other daring bakers enjoyed this challenge. Happy Holidays to all!
The 2010 December Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Penny of Sweet Sadie’s Baking. She chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ to make Stollen. She adapted a friend’s family recipe and combined it with information from friends, techniques from Peter Reinhart’s book.........and Martha Stewart’s demonstration.
