Stollen

Date Added: Tuesday December 30 , 2008
I purchased this for my husband as a Christmas present and he loved it. He is very picky about Stollen as he often received handmade Stollen each year from his aunt. He always looked forward to having the Stollen on Christmas morning after we had opened presents. I saw your website and read the reviews for the Stollen so I decided to order it for my husband. He was not disappointed. In fact, he wants to order more next year as gifts. Thank you also for the prompt delivery.

First made in Dresden, Germany around the 1400s, Stollen was made and shaped to represent the baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes. The bread was made without butter or milk and was a rather tasteless pastry. Still, it was a popular Christmas pastry for its religious significance, and from 1560 onwards, bakers would deliver one or two 36 pound Stollen to the Saxon king yearly.

 

Now, only 150 bakers are allowed to make the official Dresden Stollen, complete with the seal of the city’s famous king August the Strong. However, bakers all over the world have their own spin on both the original and the more modern recipes for the bread, and bake the dessert not only at Christmas, but also year round.
