When thinking about food on Christmas Day, most people immediately focus on roast dinner with all the trimmings. However, this doesn’t take into account the most important meal of the day – breakfast!

Here are our favourite bready brekkies to enjoy on December 25th



  • Cumbrian Christmas bread



Cumbrians know how to do it properly, naming a delicious, spiced cob after the festive season. This fruit loaf contains currants, sultanas, raisins, mixed peel, and rum or brandy, as well as black treacle and mixed spice. 

While Cumbrian Christmas bread is typically enjoyed as an afternoon snack, it is particularly delicious toasted, slathered with butter and covered with apricot jam on Christmas morning.

1. Cinnamon star bread



Who doesn’t love a cinnamon bun? Well, now you can make your favourite roll even more exciting by shaping it into a festive star. Once you have made your dough, roll out layers and spread softened butter and cinnamon mixed with brown sugar in between each disc. 

Place a small cup in the centre and from the edge cut the dough into sixteen strips. Twist each strand away from each other and pinch the ends together, creating a pretty star in the middle and a bigger one on the outside. Finally brush the masterpiece with egg whites and bake in the oven. 

2. Panettone 



Most people tuck into a slice of panettone after Christmas dinner or with a glass of Amaretto in the afternoon. However, this Italian sweet bread can also be enjoyed after unwrapping presents in the morning. 

It has a similar texture to brioche and typically comes with lemon zest, raisins and candied-orange peel. Cut a tall slice and eat it as it is, or why not enjoy it as toast with melted butter on the top with your cafe latte for a very European Yuletide brekkie?
