The recipe for these fresh-baked fruit-dotted loaves comes from my grandmother. They fill our house with a heavenly aroma that is such a part of the season.—Tom Guenther, Oshkosh, Wisconsin

1 serving (1 slice) equals 180 calories, 5 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 20 mg cholesterol, 107 mg sodium, 32 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar; gradually beat in milk. Stir in yeast mixture. Beat in eggs, 4 cups flour and salt until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Stir in candied fruit, raisins and almonds.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes (dough will be sticky). Place in a grease bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divided into fourths. Shape each portion into a loaf. Place in four greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 4 loaves.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2011

Very similar to my Grandmother's traditional recipe. Easier to make because you don't have to fold it. I make Stollen every year at Christmas and this is one of my favorite recipes.
