Ingredients for one large or two small stollen 

100g raisins

100g sultanas

100g currants

100g mixed peel

100g ground almonds

3 tablespoons rum

450g strong white flour

50g caster sugar

2 x sachets fast action yeast

175ml warm milk

2 eggs, beaten

25g melted butter

pinch of salt

grated zest of 1 orange

grated zest of 1 lemon

225g marzipan

icing sugar and egg to glaze


  1. Place the dried fruit, ground almonds and rum in a basin, stir and set to one side
  2. Place the flour, sugar, yeast, milk, eggs and butter into a large bowl along with the orange and lemon zest and a pinch of salt and stir to make a smooth dough.
  3. Turn out onto a clean, floured work surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, around 10 minutes.  Cover with a damp cloth or oiled clingfilm and leave in a warm place until doubled in size, approx 1-2 hours.
  4. Knock the dough back and add in the soaked fruit, knead this in evenly, split the dough into two if you wish to make smaller stolen, roll into an oblong.  Split the marzipan into two, roll into a sausage shape and lay along the middle of each oblong, roll the dough over the marzipan leaving the seam underneath, repeat with the other piece of dough.
  5. Place on a greased baking tray, cover with oiled clingfilm and leave in a warm place to double in size, approx 1 hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to gas 6/200c, brush the stollens with egg and bake for 40-45 minutes or if using an AGA; in the roasting oven for around 25-30 minutes.  Allow to cool then pour over glaze icing and serve.
