Traditional Christmas Baking – Hard to Find Ingredients and Supplies
But I know a good cookie or pastry or confection when I see and taste one. Pair it up with a strong Americano coffee and I’m in heaven!!
So we’ve created a small Collection of baking ingredients and supplies for purchase in our European Ware Haus adding items as suggested by our customers and our suppliers. The Collection for 2020 is our largest ever and it is getting a lot of attention.
Some of the items you can find in our Baking Supplies for Traditional German Christmas Recipes Collection include:
- Fresh whole and ground spices
- Vials of Hirchhornsalz Ammonium Carbonate and Pottasche Potassium Carbonate
- Oetker extract flavourings – Vanilla, Rum, Almond and Citrus
- Citrus Zest and Candied Citrus
- Palmin Coconut Oil
- Marzipan for Baking
- Backoblaten – the thin wafer on the bottom of a Lebkuchen cookie
- Specialty Sugars
Of course if you’re like me and enjoy reading and talking about baking but not actually the baking itself our European Ware Haus has you covered for that as well! There are lots (and lots) of Lebkuchen options to choose from baked in three different bakeries in Nuremberg and available in classic, Gluten Free, Vegan and Organic varieties. There is Stollen, Dominosteine, Zimtsterne and Vanillekipferl plus Marzipan and Chocolate confections.
My children attended a German Bilingual public elementary schools here in Winnipeg Canada. One of the songs they sang during the Christmas Season was a celebration of German baking called “In der Weihnachtsbäckerei” or in English “In The Christmas Bakery”. Here is a video of this sweet song - it's a little corny but a lot of fun!:
