We always knew it was Christmas when my mother-in-law sent us a German stollen. Now, our grown children continue to have stollen for the holidays. My daughter-in-law shared this recipe that doesn't use yeast.
"These buttery golden rolls are a sure way to make any meal special- from Thanksgiving dinner to a weekday supper," writes Amy Smith of Maplewood, Minnesota. "Their great herb flavor makes my husband think I fussed."
In Amite, Louisiana, Audrey Lanier relies on her bread machine to fix this moist dark brown loaf. Satisfying slices get plenty of flavor from aniseed, caraway and fennel, along with bursts of sweetness from the raisins.
If you enjoy gingerbread and pumpkin goodies, you'll like this spiced dessert I always fix around the holiday. My family and friends look forward to moist slices every year. —Suzanne Loveland of Edinburg, Virginia
"We like this homemade rye so much that I seldom buy bread anymore," writes May Ann Bonk of New Berlin, Wisconsin. "For the past 10 years, I've made this bread for our church bake sales and it always goes quickly."
This nicely spiced caked, with chunks of apple and a hint of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, always wins raves. I like it best served warm with a dollop of whipped topping. It freezes well, too.
