This is a short article as I thought it would be the easiest way to get to this to Margie and anyone else.
Despite this being a sweet bread, my wonderful family of happy eaters, The Beswicks, will happily eat this with sweet or savoury things on Christmas Eve,. It is a traditional food eaten on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning In Alsace, France. It should be eaten in thin slices but we pull pieces off at the hot-buffet table and eat it. My nephews and sons will dip huge chunks of it in to casserole sauce or gravy.
This is also called " berawecka " in Alsace. This area of France has a German influence.
