This stollen recipe starts with a box of hot roll mix that shortens lots of waiting time for the dough to rise and ends up lighter and delicious!
It makes two good sized sweet breads that are a hit at Christmas or as a nice food gift.
I need to make it every year because my husband loves them!
Total Time: 20 min. prep + rising/Bake 20 min
Yield: 2 good sized loaves
Combine raisins, currants, citron, and cherries and rum; set aside 1 hour. Combine 2 cup flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Heat milk, water 4 Tbsp. butter, and rind over low heat until warm. Add milk mixture, eggs, and almond extract to flour mixture. Beat well. Stir 1/2 cup flour into fruit mixture; add to flour mixture. Add almonds and enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Knead until smooth, about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl and let rise for 1 hour. Punch dough down and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough in half and roll each half lengthwise and press along edge to secure. Place loves on a greased baking sheet and set aside to rise for 1/2 hour or until double in bulk. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

My neighbor used to make wonderful Stollen for Christmas gifts. I miss them so much, now that she's passed away. Does anyone have an AUTHENTIC recipe for German Stollen? Thanks so much!

I thought I saw a recipe (that I actually made) on ThriftyFun, but now I can't find it!
It was an easy version of Stollen using hot roll mix and my husband really liked it!
