    Excellent gifts

    Have tasted German Stollens from many places including on the premises of a bakery in Germany and 1-800-Bakery's German Stollen is the best by far. Have been a repeat customer and these stollens make excellent gifts that all can enjoy.

    Raving over stollen

    Ordered the stollen for my mother and she is raving about it! Thanks so much!
    Review by Sheila • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    So good warm

    This is the 2nd year I've ordered Stollen, and also sent one to my son's friend. The instructions say to warm it in the oven, but why waste so much electricity when you can put them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. It's warm, soft and delicious. The giant cookies are so soft and yummy also.

    So thankful!

    Haven't had stollen this good since Grandma Cecile was alive and brought it up from New York City! So thankful I found you 1-800-Bakery.

    The Stollen arrived in great condition, still frozen. When defrosted, warmed a little, it was DELICIOUS! Was hosting a brunch, most of the people had never even heard of Christmas Stollen (German tradition) and they thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Rated best ever

    Having grown up in Europe and tasted many Stollen, I have to rate yours as the best ever! Thanks so much for brightening my morning cup of coffee with a slice of delicious Stollen over the holidays.
    Review by Susan • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    We love this

    My parents are from Milwaukee and my grandmother worked in a German bakery there. My mother can't make stollen any more but they both love yours. I have ordered it several times for Christmas and get the same reaction every time. Keep up the good work!

    Prompt delivery

    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.

    Best ever

    Best ever stollen of any place we ever purchased them.

    The Stollen Bread was sent to my sister in law for Christmas, it was a great success. Very moist and delicious. She shared with friends and family. Expect to receive more orders for this at the Holiday season. Peggy from Nebraska 12/08
    Review by Peggy • (Posted on 8/6/2016)


    The web site was just a bit confusing, but I was able to overcome with just a bit of effort. Shipping was as requested and the product arrived in excellent shape. While we order stollen just at Christmas time, it was outstanding, as usual, and already we're looking forward to next Christmas and ordering stollen again. For what it's worth, my wife loves your stollen and consumed one loaf before my son and I ever touched it. Good thing I ordered three loafs. At least my son and I had a chance.
    Review by Allen • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    Excellent quality

    We were accustomed to Dresden Stollen in Germany. Your Stollen was excellent and absolutely comparable, and we enjoyed it very much. Also our friends found it great. So we certainly will get back to you for more in the future.
    Review by Annula • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    Thank you.

    My son lives in New Jersey and I live in West Virginia. Sadly, it was not possible for his Dad and I to be with him to celebrate his 31st birthday. Thankfully, I have found a fantastic bakery who makes the most wonderful red velvet cake (his favorite birthday cake since childhood)! Not only was the cake rich and moist with wonderful cream cheese icing (according to my son), but it was delivered, as ordered, on his birthday despite an ice storm. The product is wonderful and the customer service is amazing! That is why for two years in a row, I have placed this "special" order with you! Thank you Chef Steve!
    Review by Maragret • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    Ill be back!

    Great Customer Service! Paypal didn't put my order through - which I didn't discover until 2 days before Christmas. Diane, Customer Service Angel, is overnighting my stollen at no extra cost to me so my mother may have stollen on Christmas morning! You can bet I'll be back!

    Best Stollen in world

    The best stollen in the world. Wish I could get it all year.
    Review by Sharon • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    Just like German

    Have ordered the Stollen several times and the taste is just like we had in Germany. Real great taste and always fresh ingredients.
    Review by Gerald • (Posted on 8/6/2016)


    For years I have been purchasing a stollen from a well-known bakehouse here in Ann Arbor to give to my brother-in-law for his birthday. This year I decided to try another source since they have been somewhat dry in recent years. I chose 1-800-Bakery with some trepidation, but was rewarded by his enthusiastic call this a.m. telling me how delicious and moist it is! I will use 1-800-Bakery in subsequent years.
    Review by Maryls • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    Excellent Stollen

    Stollen was excellent as usual. Wanted to send another to my sister in law as she enjoys it so much but was denied promotional discount so will wait.
    Review by Lee F • (Posted on 8/6/2016)

    Will buy again

    Yummy-- absolutely yummy -- and despite a slip-up on the order at first all loaves (3) arrived in time to send out for Christmas. Will buy again. Amy C.

    Not disappointed

    "I recently ordered the Stollen for my husband as a Christmas present. He absolutely loved it. His aunt used to make it for him each Christmas and send to him, but she has not been able to for the past couple of years. I knew how much my husband loved having Stollen and coffee on Christmas morning so I searched various websites for the best Stollen and came upon your site. I was not disappointed, and neither was he. We will definitely be ordering more from your website. Thank you again.

    Very Good

    I have had Stollen in Germany, and have bought it every year since then. This one is different than some of the others I have eaten, but it is very good. I definitely will buy it from you in the future. I received it when it was supposed to arrive.

    Stollen as Gifts

    "This is the best Stollen ever! I gave three for gifts this year and everyone loved it.

    Special celebration gift

    "Dear Chef Steve,

    I am writing about your stollen. Our family has a Christmas tradtion that began as far back as I can remember and that is Stollen.
    I am in my late thirties and have had stollen every year for Christmas. It is usually sent to me from my parents who get themselves one or two as well. Well this year as usual I got a stollen, and found that I wanted more but all the stores were
    out by the end of December, so I contacted a friend in England who located your website. I ordered your stollen for myself and for my father who just turned 71 on Feb 7.
    When I asked him if he is still eating stollen his response was ""always until it is gone"", so I ordered yours, one for me and one for mom and dad, especially for Dad's birthday. My dad loves your stollen, and so does my mom and mine barely lasted a few
    days. It is unbelievable. The bread is so light and not heavy which is perfect with the sugar coated topping, and not powdered sugar but granulated sugar that is so fine it melts in your mouth. You made magic happen with your stollen for my dad's 71st and each year I will be ordering more and more as there is nothing in the world
    that compares to a stollen such as yours.

    Warm Regards
    Diane T"

    Loved your Stollen

    "Hi Steve,

    I'm sorry that I did not write to you and tell how much George loved the stollen. It is something he looks forward to every year. He said that this was one of the best he has ever had. It melted in his mouth. He was upset I only got him one.

    Thanks again.

    Review by Jennifer • (Posted on 8/5/2016)

    Best Stollen

    My 82 year old mother-in-law is from Germany. I gave her one of your stollen for Christmas this year (rather than an imported one as I had given in previous years). She called today to ask me to order her 2 more: She said it was the best stollen that she has ever had. Thank you.
    Review by Jane • (Posted on 8/5/2016)

    Close to home made

    Your Stollen is really very delicious. It comes closest in smell and taste to the home baked ones of my mother. I am so excited to have found your website and like to order another one right now.
    Review by Sigrid • (Posted on 8/5/2016)

    As close to moms

    "all i can say it is as close to my mother home made cake
    as i have ever had............"
    Review by Anita • (Posted on 8/4/2016)

    Perfect Stollen

    Finally found:A true homemade-style all butter stollen with no spices added to mask inferior ingredients. The yeast flavor of the dough was muted by the rum so this stollen is definitely a pastry and not a bread. Because of its dense dough the texture as well as the flavor was enhanced by warming the slices at 200 degrees for a few minutes.
    Review by Leslie K • (Posted on 8/4/2016)


    The stollen had been frozen and arrived mostly defrosted. Its consistency was good but it needed more dried fruit and nuts. The taste was sweeter than we like. Overall it was an acceptable product.
    Review by Douglas D • (Posted on 8/4/2016)

    Beyond Great

    "Hi Chef Steve, Sorry to take so long to let you know how much I'm enjoying the Stollen.

    Our family got started on Dresden Stollen many years ago when my late doctor uncle started getting it for family members over 40 yrs. ago. He got it from the Paul Fisher Bakery in Portland, Oregon. I didn't think too much about it then, I think my uncle bought it way too early & it always seemed dry to me. A couple yrs. ago my cousin in Yakima, Washington started sending it to family members & we all just loved it.
    My youngest son moved to N. Yarmouth. Me. last July after his companion had been killed by a drunken driver. They had planned to move back there & already had their train tickets, so he decided to go ahead & go back, altho he's never been east of Phoenix, AZ. Her family were all there & she was a native of Maine. I thought he'd be back in a few wks. but he loves it there, found a great job within a month & tells me all the snow & cold doesn't bother him.
    Anyway just before Christmas he asked me about the Stollen my cousin Phil had sent. I started looking on the Internet, but couldn't find that particular company so looked more & found your site & the stollen sounded so good I decided to order it.
    When my son got it in Maine he called & told me it was absolutely delicious. He then made a joke & said his Stollen had been stolen, referring to the person he's staying with had stolen it because she'd never had it & she too, had the same opinion as he did.
    Before I ordered one for myself I rec'd. one from a different bakery from my cousin & it didn't taste as good as yours sounded on your website. I saved some of what my cousin sent & there is no comparison, whatsoever. Yours is so much better. I love it !

    Hope I haven't bored you with this story, but wanted to let you know how this had started in our family. I hope to order more next season. I would rate it at least 10 stars !

    Thank you so much for making such a delicious Stollen."

Stollen is one of our most historical desserts, with a rich history full of stories about Princes, Popes, Kings and ordinary people. It's made from a recipe that has had the time to be perfected over centuries with the addition of bright fruit, velvety butter and warm spices.

What is stollen? German stollen is a fruit bread that is rolled in icing or powdered sugar. Dried fruits, candied peels and nuts add crunch and flavor to the bread. Our Christmas stollen (aka Christstollen) is full of rum-macerated raisins, almonds and candied fruit.

After being baked to perfection, the stollen is removed from the oven and cooled, then brushed with melted butter and rolled in sugar. The sweet exterior keeps the inside moist longer, and adds balance to each bite. The density and size of our 1.5 lb creation makes it the perfect stollen gift to send - it travels well and arrives tasting fresh. Send stollen to family and friends around the holidays to remind them of this rich German tradition, or start a new one of your own. 

Some of the more interesting highlights from stollen history:

Since butter was banned during the Advent season, stollen had to be made of oil instead of butter. Prince Elector Ernst wasn't a fan of the diminished flavor and texture, and sent a letter to the Pope requesting an exemption to use butter. This was finally granted in the famous "Butter Letter" of 1490, where the Prince's household was allowed to use butter without being fined. 

Dresden, Germany holds an annual Stollenfest. They really love stollen there - they've been baking it since the 15th century.

Augustus II The Strong once ordered the Baker's Guilde to bake a 1.7 ton stollen, big enough to serve all 24,000 guests at a festival.

A German supermarket chain called Lidl baked a stollen over 72 meters long - that's more than 230 feet - in 2010.
