Meanwhile, put in a large bowl the eggs and add sugar.
Beat eggs with an electric mixer for 10 minutes, until they become clear and creamy; then unireil just warm butter.

Take a bowl and sift the flour, cinnamon and baking powder. then mix gently and add the salt and lemon zest; when everything is well blended, combine the flours with the apples cut in cubes and pour the mixture into a cake pan of 24 cm diameter opening circle will have been buttered and floured (or covered with parchment paper).

Christmas markets in South Tyrol

posted by Home In Italy on December 9th, 2015

Here our 5 stars itinerary for this Christmas: five cities of South Tyrol that are welcoming Christmas with suggestive street markets.

The first one is the medieval city of Bressanone, where it is possible to buy local handicraft; nativity scenes, sculptures, hand made potteries, candles and Christmas decorations. Not to miss the Nativity Scene museum, proof of a tradition lasting since 1200.

The second star is Brunico, a perfect location for those who want to add the amusement of the Plan the Corones slopes. The streets of Brunico are overwhelmed with the smells and flavors of this land: from the Vin Brulé wine to the typical desserts.

The third stop is in Merano, the ideal place for relaxing and have fun at the same time with its thermal baths, the trekking paths and the suggestive Christmas markets.

The fourth star is the lovely Vipiteno. This city develops along a long narrow pedestrian street with lovely wooden houses. The late-medieval architecture bears witness of the affluence of many mining entrepreneurs who, around 1300, with their economic resources and their cosmopolitan conception, gave a special impression to the essence of the city.
The splendor of that era, combined with the exemplary restoration, have made it possible to insert Vipiteno in the catalog of the most beautiful towns of Italy.

Last stop of this fascinating journey is Bolzano.
