Stollen, Christstollen,and Dresdener stollen are childhood memories from Germany. I never equated them with Christmas, the little mounds on top symbolizing the baby Jesus. Like the Büche de Noel, they also harken back to pagan tree culture. Whatever you believe, I am in tune with the tasty flavors and fun of making this fruit-and-nut studded sweet bread favorite.

    Looks great, Jeremy! Did you use almond paste or marzipan? I find the marzipan here usually too sweet – nothing better than Niederegger from Lübeck.

    Hi Karin, I used marzipan, which really you don’t notice at all…I do prefer just the fruits and raisins..I’ll also try to make a sourdough version of this!
