BBA Challenge: Christopsomos (Greek Christmas Bread)

Print Friendly

Even though it was originally intended for Christmas, this is a bread I would gladly bake any time of year. The BBA Challenge bread for this week was Artos, Greek celebration breads, and I chose the fruited Christmas version, Christopsomos. My family adored this orange and spice flavored bread, and I can easily imagine making a delicious bread pudding or French toast with this loaf.

    I am Italian and my husband is Greek. I enjoy cooking and am learning and cooking the Greek foods we both really enjoy. This year, we purchased Christmas bread loaves from the church. I would like to know if they should be stored at room temperature or refrigerated. Bought several to take to homes for Christmas celebration. Thanks. Annetta

      Hi Annetta. I’ve only made the Christopsomos one time, though am planning to make it again next week, so this is a guess on my part. If you don’t cut it, it should keep for a few days at room temperature, but beyond that, I would wrap it well and refrigerate it.
