Daring Bakers, December: Stollen



The 2010 December Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Penny of Sweet Sadie’s Baking. She chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ to make Stollen. She adapted a friend’s family recipe and combined it with information from friends, techniques from Peter Reinhart’s book.........and Martha Stewart’s demonstration.

And because I have to get up for a flight in the morning and I'm already beat and short on time, this will be primarily a picture post until I can edit it later this week Happy Holidays, everyone!

It looks delicious, and I'm curious what you have sprinkled on the dough.

Oooh, your stollen wreath looks delicious! Great job on this month's DB Challenge, and keep up the great bakes :)

Like Jenny I too was wondering what was sprinkled on your dough! LOL Whatever it was your stollen turned out beautiful! I too really enjoyed this challenge.

Thanks, everyone!

Jenny and thedaintyapron--those are chunks of dark chocolate-covered marzipan. I was too lazy to make a special trip to buy regular marzipan and didn't feel like making any, but I found this bar of it at a sandwich shop we were grabbing lunch at earlier that day. It worked out beautifully and was so delicious!
