Re: Christmas Stollen!!!

My stollen is "sans" marzipan as I'm the only one who will tolerate it.

Re: Christmas Stollen!!!

Woke up yesterday to the sound of my son making stollen in the kitchen.
He used the marzipan and it tasted so good!

That does look an easy recipe Blueladder , but I think I would put the marzipan in a rope shape inside the dough rather than roll it out . Also I think I would totally cover the marzipan with the dough.

It is traditional to place the marzipan in a 'rope' down the middle, but I find that people who aren't that fussed about it prefer a thinner layer of it instead. I make my Stollen so that the flattened marzipan goes into a sort of 'u' shape in the finished loaf.....that way no-one ever picks the stuff out!

Oh & my marzipan is always completely enrobed in the dough too.

Re: Christmas Stollen!!!

I forgot to post this at the time - I made this recipe, it was pretty easy and the stollen was delicious. I'm going to make another one today as I have some marzipan left over from Christmas.
