Christmas Stollen From Brigitte Sealing Recipe

Serves 6


  • 1 1/8 lb flour
  • 7 oz sugar
  • 1 pn salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp rum
  • 1 pn cardomom (generous)
  • 1 pn mace (generous)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 1/2 oz butter
  • 4 1/2 oz currants well drained
  • 9 oz sultanas
  • 9 oz almonds, finely chopped
  • 3 1/2 oz candied lemon peel
  • 1 3/4 oz butter for brushing
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar for dusting
  • 1 3/4 oz beef drippings
  • 9 oz cottage cheese, well drained


1. Mix and sieve together the flour and baking powder onto a pastry board or cool slab.
2. Make a well in the center and pour in the sugar, vanilla, rum, lemon juice, and the eggs.
3. Draw in some flour from the sides of the well to mix with these and form a thick paste.
4. Add the cold butter, cut into small pieces, the finely chopped beef drippings, cottage cheese, currants, sultanas, nuts and candied peel.
5. Cover the fruits with more of the flour, and then starting from the middle, work all of it together quickly with your hands into a firm, smooth paste.
6. If it sticks, add a little more flour.
7. Form the mix into a long, oval shape, and then fold it over lengthwise to give it the traditional "stollen" shape.
8. Line a baking dish with greased waxed paper and place stollen on this.
9. Preheat the oven for 5 minutes at 500 F.
10. Bake at 375 F for 50 to 60 minutes.
11. As soon as the stollen comes out of the oven, brush with melted butter and dust thickly with powdered sugar.
