With or without Marzipan

Traditionally Stollen is baked at Christmas AND Easter. It’s the same recipe.

Well, this is how my Bavarian grandmother always did it, and I have kept the tradition.

Stollen was as important in my family as pasty was to my in-law family from Cornwall. My mother was one of five sisters, so there was always great competition who baked the best stollen …. My preference was always the one my aunt Carla made. Of course I never dared to admit that whilst my mother was alive!!
