Final Notes for the German Christmas Stollen Recipe
➡️ Sweetbread is a traditional dessert for Christmas in many European countries and each of them has available a lot of homemade cake recipes.
➡️ While in Central and Eastern European countries most sweet bread recipes are made with sweet leavened dough and walnut or poppy seed paste filling, in other countries are traditionally made sweet bread recipes with unleavened dough.
➡️ Such examples of sweetbread with unleavened dough are walnut beigli and poppyseed beigli, which are coming from Austria and Hungary but have been adopted under different names in almost all the countries that were part of the Habsburg Empire.
➡️ Germany features a special fruit bread recipe which is called stollen. There are more stollen recipes available, however, one of them is usually prepared during the Christmas season and for this reason, it’s named German stollen bread (Christstollen in German).
➡️ The most popular German Christmas stollen recipe is shared on this page with step-by-step instructions to make it from scratch.
