Christmas is coming and the husband, being the mummy’s boy that he is, asked me to please go and learn the art of making Stollen from his mother. So I did. But it didn’t last for long (because her darling son aka my mann had it for breakfast on most days) so the schwiegermutti (MIL), who is hosting the Christmas eve dinner here this year, is making another one on Thursday.
Assemble all the ingredients together. I cringed at the amount of butter used.
With your hands, mix the ingredients up
Watch the pro do it…
Until it becomes a dough
Get it ready for the oven
Wait for them to rise
Once out, shower it with generous bowls of melted butter!
Drizzle it with powdered sugar
Tadaaaa!!! We have ourselves some really schmeck gut Stollen!
