recipe

This puddinglike German dessert is generally made with fresh red currants as the base. Adding other red fruits, such as raspberries, strawberries, and cherries, is common, but if doing so, use them in place of the second pound of currants in step 2. This dessert is also nice topped with creme anglaise instead of whipped cream.

recipe

Stollen's richness is similar to that of brioche, but dried fruit makes it sweeter and gives it a more interesting texture. Serve this rich holiday treat in thin slices as breakfast bread or with afternoon tea. Like fruitcake, stollen improves with age and can be made up to three weeks in advance.
