It's a delicious Christmas stollen, soft and spongy with a slight taste of candied fruit due to orange liqueur and lemon crust. I believe it will bring the delightful taste to your Christmas table.
I believe that cooking should be just enough to make your table exquisite but not to exhaust you while cooking. The combination of tart ingredients makes this stollen delicate and simply mouth watering. This Christmas stollen will get all your family at the Christmas table for breakfast or lunch. Wishing you Happy Holidays!
Grind the cottage cheese through a sieve, so that it is smooth in texture. Add sugar.
Add soft, not melted butter. Sieve and add 3 glasses of flour. Mix gently.
Pour the liqueur or rum into the cup with raisins and leave them to soak for 10 minutes. I can recommend Cointreau liqueur with the taste of orange.
Add vanilla sugar, baking powder, 50 gr almonds to the dough.
Grind the lemon crust, squeeze the lemon juice and add them into the dough. Add the cup of raisins with the liqueur.
Mix the dough gently on the board. You may need 1 glass of flour to knead into the dough, to make a soft roll. Put the roll of dough onto the baking dish covered with the baking paper. Bake in the pre-heated oven 200 C for 15 min, then 175 C for 45 min. You can check if your stollen is ready by poking it with a knife. The raw dough should not stick to the knife.
