Description

Stollen is a classic German dessert that is typically served around Christmas. In this version, the sweet yeasted dough is formed into a wreath making it a beautiful dessert. The dough is studded with candied orange and figs which both impart their flavor and sweetness on the dessert. Almonds add a nice bit of crunch to the cake. A brushing of melted butter and a dusting of powdered sugar add a nice finish to the dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 orange (candied, diced)
  • 4 figs (candied, diced)
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/8 cup water (lukewarm)
  • 7 grams yeast
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 70 grams butter
  • 385 grams flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 yolk
  • 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 cup almonds (chopped)
  • melted butter
  • confectioners sugar

Directions

  1. Mix the candied orange and figs with the orange juice and set aside.
  2. Stir the yeast into the lukewarm water and set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat the milk and butter together until the butter melts. Let cool.
  4. Place the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and orange rind in a mixer. Add the yeast and then the milk mixtures.Whisk the vanilla extract, egg, and egg yolk together and add to the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Mix until the dough is smooth and elastic and not very sticky. Add flour as needed.
  6. Add the fruit and juice mixture and the almonds and stir to incorporate. Place the dough into a bowl, cover with plastic, and place in a warm place until it increases in volume.
  7. Spread the dough out onto a floured surface to form a large rectangle. Roll it up lengthwise into a tube and bring the ends together to form a circle. Fit one of the ends into the other and seal. Place on a silicone or parchment paper-lined baking tray.
  8. Cut two thirds into the dough with kitchen shears every 5 centimeters, around the ring. Cover with plastic once more and set out in a warm place.
  9. Once the volume has doubled, bake at 180 Celsius for 20 minutes, rotate the baking sheet, and bake 20 minutes more, until lightly golden.
  10. Remove from oven, brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Let sit one minute and then repeat. Cool 1 hour before slicing and serving.
