Now, what to bake when you have an excess of delicious homemade marzipan? Mmmm? Stollen of course!
I had never made it before but have eaten the Dutch version (many times). It just so happened that BBC Good Magazine, which my husband kindly brought back from London, had a Stollen wreath on the front. So of course I had to give it a go.
If I was making this as a centrepiece for a party then I would have made the wreath because it looks so pretty. But I wasn’t, because there is no party, but that won’t stop me making it, and so I divided the mix in half and made 2 scrummy loaves. All that needs to be done before they are served is sprinkle with icing sugar or make a glace icing to drizzle over the top.
Until next time….
