Tree-Top Baking... MARZIPAN STOLLEN

During the next few weeks, we will be showcasing some of our Holiday items.  

This week, we feature Marzipan Stollen
Stollen is a bread-like fruitcake made with yeast, water, milk, sugar, eggs,  butter and flour.  Candied orange and lemon peel, raisins and slivered almonds and a special spice blend are blended in and a "rope" of marzipan is in the center to make this holiday favorite. Except for the fruit added, the dough is quite low in sugar. The finished cake is sprinkled with icing sugar.
