|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.|
This was my first ever German style Stollen. I must say that I loved it! I followed the recipe given almost to a T. I learned how to make homemade candied orange peel (I'll post about it soon), to use in the recipe. It was a hit among the guests. I will definitely be doing this again.
I still want to try the Brazilian "Rabanadas" (a type of French Toast served at Christmas time) with the leftovers. Unfortunately there were no leftovers for "rabanadas" :o(
From the original recipe provided by the hostess, these were the only changes I made:
I used lime instead of lemon;
I omited lemon and orange extracts;
I used only orange peel (not mixed peel);
I used 1/2 cup raisins, 1/2 cup sultanas;
I omitted glacé cherries;
I used 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup walnuts.
I would like to thank Penny for the special challenge, my house smelled like Christmas while baking it. The original recipe can be found at The Daring Kitchen, as well as the other Daring Bakers' wonderful creations!
