Fourth Term: Christmas Stollen
Delia shows how to make Christmas Stollen.
At Christmas time in Austria they traditionally serve something called stollen: it is a rich, fruity yeast bread filled with almond icing (marzipan) and topped with a light glace icing. If you have a number of people staying over the holiday, this is wonderful served warmed through for breakfast. If it is not all eaten when it's fresh, you can also lightly toast it in slices. In fact it is so good it's worth making two and freezing one (it freezes beautifully).
