Sponge rusk is similar to biscotti but it is made out of twice-baked yellow cake batter. A Finnish type of rusk is called korppu, usually a dried piece of bun, flavored with cinnamon and sugar.
The yellow cake batter is baked into a flat, rectangular cake pan; once it is baked and cooled off, it is sliced into strips and baked again or toasted to make a cake toast. Korppu is a common coffee bread, normally eaten after having been dipped in coffee.
Catholics and Protestants wear crosses on necklaces, bracelets, rings, pendants, keychains and items of clothing.
These celebrations are thought to have merged with pagan practices of hanging mistletoe and the burning of the Yule log.
In Britain, the Yule log was originally seen as a magical amulet, and eventually made it into the hand's of Father Christmas.
It is eaten as a dunking biscuit, particularly with Persian chai (tea). In Italy, this form is called fette biscottate (twice-baked sliced bread); it should not be confused with biscotti. It is made from flour, eggs, oil or butter, sugar, yeast or baking powder, and sometimes a small amount of cardamon.
It is topped with roasted sesame seeds, black caraway seeds, or anise, and eaten as a dunking biscuit, especially with herbal tea.
