Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-3/4 to 5-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup mixed candied fruit
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
  • Additional candied cherries and sliced almonds, optional

Directions

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, butter, sugar, eggs, lemon peel, salt and 3 cups flour. Add raisins, candied fruit and almonds. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Punch dough down and divide in half; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll or press each half into a 12-in. x 7-in. oval. Fold a long side over to within 1-in. of opposite side; press edge lightly to seal. Place on greased baking sheets; curve ends slightly. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 1 hour. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Combine confectioners' sugar and milk; spread over stollen. Decorate with cherries and almonds if desired. Yield: 2 loaves.

"This is very good. The only thing i did different was i spread the icing all over and added green and red cherries on top of the icing."
