keks - polish christmas candied fruit cake


some tastes and scents remind you christmas, wherever you are. in my case christmas tastes are piernik (ginger bread), seromak (poppy and cheese cake) and keks of couse (candied fruits cake). these cakes, much more than a typical italian panettone (even if i live in italy now) are my favourites for christams and simply make me feel better! i'm in warsaw now and my mom baked all of these cakes. here for you the first recipe for a wonderful keks! hope you'll like it :)

alcuni sapori e profumi ci fanno pensare al natale, ovunque noi siamo. nel mio caso questi sapori sono piernik (ginger bread), seromak (cheesecake con semi di papavero) e ovviamente keks (torta di frutta candita). questi dolci, molto di più del tipico panettone italiano (anche se vivo in italia ormai) sono i miei preferiti per il natale e mi fanno semplicemente star meglio! sono a varsavia in questi giorni e mia mamma ha fatto tutti questi dolci. ecco per voi il magnifico keks! spero vi piacerà :)

Hello Justyna,
Enjoy your time in Warsaw. This cake does look good. I really appreciate the way you have given the Polish names, along with the translated equivalent. Thank you for widening my foodie knowledge of Polish culture. Have a Happy New Year.

Oh, I have never made mine. I always buy the imported from Italy, and give it to friends. It looks so good though. I may have to try some myself!

Every happiness to you in the new year.
