Pan de Pascua is a Chilean cake that is traditionally eaten around Christmas time. (Although "Pascua" literally means "Easter", Chileans use both the words "Navidad" and "Pascua" interchangeably for Christmas.) Despite its name, it is a cake made from batter, and not a true bread. It is similar to a sweet sponge cake flavored with ginger and honey. It usually contains candied fruits, raisins, walnuts and almonds. Pan de Pascua was originally introduced to Chile by German immigrants. The Chilean version combines characteristics of the German Stollen and the Italian panettone.
