This is our version of Stollen, a traditional Christmas bread of German origin. A cross between a bread and a cake, this is a dense loaf laden with candied citrus, raisins & almonds. And, in keeping with tradition, a rope of Marzipan runs through the bread. We have, of course, used house made marzipan (whole almonds so the color is darker) and candied the citrus ourselves. The dough itself goes through an overnight fermentation for better flavor. From soaking the add ins to mixing, resting, shaping, baking and again resting (the flavor improves as it 'ripens'), this is truly a labour of love.
We hope it brightens up your Christmas. It has certainly brightened our coffee hour!
Available in a medium size of 450 gms and good for 2 people (if sharing is your thing). It has great shelf life. Must be warmed slightly before eating.
