    I would say peaches would be too soft and watery for the bread?

    I know that icing sugar is confectioner's sugar or 10 x, but what is vanilla sugar and how much is a pouch, a teaspoon? It looks luscious, can't wait to try it.

    vanilla sugar is a product by Dr Oetker, available in baking section of most of grocery stores here in Canada.

    You can make yourself using vanilla bean and sugar, but that is a bit expensive to do, as vanilla bean isnt that cheap :)

    Sounds delicious. Have you tried it without cherries? Or any idea what to substitute cherries with if they are not in season?

    Also, is "2 dl milk" "20ml" of milk?

    Thanks, can't wait to try!

    it would be 200 ml :) and no, I have never tried with other fruits, sorry, but I would say it would work even with chocolate chips ;-)
