German Marzipan Stollen - Fruit Bread
The Marzipan Stollen is one of Germany's finest cakes. Filled with 12% delicious Marzipan and 24% top-quality raisins, coated with powdered sugar, this Stollen takes the cake. Great for dessert, snack, and festive occasions.
I was pleasantly surprised. The Stollen was not too dense or dry like some of them. Also, the Marzipan filling is better than with most Stollen. It's more of it and it's nice and creamy.
The recent loss of a dog/friend has had me not walking in the mornings and it was beginning to show, if you catch my drift. I ordered two of the stollens with marzipan centers intent on using them as thank you gifts for meal invitations received. I had to taste it before giving the first one away, you know to be sure that it was not poisonous or anything. It was OK and I smartly bypassed a second helping. The second one was offered to a brother-in-law who, I had forgotten, does not "do" gluten. I casually gave it to my daughter instead. The next day, she extolled the delights of getting up early on a Saturday and getting a nice cup of coffee and a piece of stollen. She kept saying that it was so yummy and asked me what I thought about it. My reply: What stollen??? Score: Diet - zero and me with my resolve - negative zero. (I KNOW that there is no such value in math but, so what, I misuse vocabulary concepts almost as well as I cheat on strict dietary compliance!!
Oh my God! It was delicious! I'm sold on your profucts.
Reason for less than 5 star - no real butter flavor and a mite dry upon arrival.
Remembering home, so glad I found the Stollen, the wonderful rolls, the bread, nothing like this anywhere. Thank you
