MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2013

I have been baking this wonderful recipe since I first found it in 2009. I thought it was so good, I mailed a piece of the stollen along with the recipe to a family member, and since then, just about every one in my family uses this recipe. My family is German, and we always looked forward to our mother baking stollen during the holidays. Her recipe uses yeast and seemed too difficult for me. This recipe is easy and always delicious! It tastes fine as written, or you can vary the amount of candied fruit or nuts (chopped pecans instead of almonds) I like to eat mine with a little margarine spread on it.....yummy!

This recipe is great! I make at least a triple recipe every Christmas. My intention is to give as gifts, but I end up consuming most of the loaves!

I don't bake with yeast very much so this looked really easy to make for something special. Wow!! It was easy and really good. Now I have something to make special every Christmas and also Easter.
