The \'Stollen\' Background 670 Years of \'Stollen\' Tradition Probably the Saxonians invented it - the Christstollen, the King of all Christmas pastries. But this was a lengthy time in the past. For the very first time, this cake was mentioned in 1330 in Naumburg/Saale, (Germany) as a particular privilege granted to the bakers\' guild by the bishop. But probably its origin dates back to heathen pre-historic instances. In the Middle Ages baking Stollen has produced into a very regarded artwork. The increasing significance in the 17th century was not only marginally linked with the actions of the East Indian Organization, which in these instances entertained a flourishing company with spices, which have been also employed for the planning of Christstollen. For Christstollen all these exotic components are nevertheless of decisive importance! They give it the really particular taste and represent the characteristic feature of this pastry. The amount of \'Kölner Stollen\' made in the Rhine region represents a large share in Germany\'s complete Stollen production. The planning of Stollen largely depends on the blend of the recipe. Much more in excess of, much time is necessary for the preparation of Stollen dough, as they are heavy yeast dough containing large quantities of butter and margarine. In addition to chosen flavours, spices, candied lemon and orange peel, almonds, nuts and raisins, really often there is also added Marzipan to the dough. The preparation of a tasty Stollen that keeps nicely from this kind of a heavy dough demands excellent professional expertise of the baker. The conventional Stollen is the folded Stollen, and not the Stollen created in a baking pan. This fact reveals the actual talent of a Stollen baker, simply because the folded Stollen, possibly stuffed with Marzipan or Persipan, are much more challenging to do.
