A traditional sweet that you enjoy slicing little by little while looking forward to the day of Christmas.

Stollen with a moist and gorgeous taste
Stollen can be found in bakeries and patisseries around the world during the holidays. There are various theories, but it is a traditional German pastry that is said to resemble an infant Jesus wrapped in a swaddle. In Japan, it is popular in shops and home recipes, and there is a custom of slicing it little by little during the four weeks of Advent in anticipation of Christmas.
Today, it is enjoyed with a wide variety of flavors, but at DEAN & DELUCA, bakery craftsmen bake each one by one, sticking to the recipe and taste that have been loved for a long time.
That’s why the key to deliciousness is the dough. Spices such as cinnamon and cloves are thoroughly mixed in, and the butter is mixed while enclosing air to create a moist and soft dough. To this, add berries soaked in rum for about a month, and orange and lemon peels soaked in kirsch to make it even more moist. In addition, vanilla is added to give the fragrance a gorgeous spread.
Furthermore, dry fruits and plenty of almonds that have different textures between whole and sliced are mixed in. This year, we increased the amount of almonds to further enhance the texture and aroma.
After shaping the finished dough, cover it with a thinly stretched dough. As a result, ingredients such as almonds and dried fruits peeking out from the dough do not burn when baking in the oven while maintaining the aroma. In addition, excess moisture does not fly away, and it is baked moist.
When baked, go to the smooth butter. This year, it is soaked twice, sprinkled with granulated sugar, left to rest for a day, and sprinkled with powdered sugar to finish. Every year, we update it little by little and pursue even more deliciousness.
When sliced, the dried fruits and almonds reveal their faces, and each bite fills your mouth with a rich texture and buttery flavor. The flavor will increase as it sits, so please slice it little by little, just like the real thing. Also, it goes without saying that it goes well with coffee. It goes well with a roast that has a strong and bitter taste, or a light roast that is refreshing. Spend a sweet time waiting for Christmas with your favorite cup.
