The \'Stollen\' Background 670 Many years of \'Stollen\' Tradition Most likely the Saxonians invented it - the Christstollen, the King of all Christmas pastries. But this was a lengthy time ago. 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 most likely its origin dates back to heathen pre-historic occasions. In the Middle Ages baking Stollen has produced into a very regarded art. The developing significance in the 17th century was not only marginally linked with the pursuits of the East Indian Organization, which in these times entertained a flourishing organization with spices, which were also used for the planning of Christstollen. For Christstollen all these exotic components are still of decisive relevance! They give it the extremely special taste and signify the characteristic function of this pastry. The number of \'Kölner Stollen\' manufactured in the Rhine spot represents a large share in Germany\'s complete Stollen production. The preparation of Stollen largely depends on the mixture of the recipe. More above, significantly time is essential for the preparation of Stollen dough, as they are hefty yeast dough containing massive quantities of butter and margarine. In addition to selected flavours, spices, candied lemon and orange peel, almonds, nuts and raisins, fairly frequently there is also added Marzipan to the dough. The preparation of a tasty Stollen that keeps properly from such a hefty dough demands excellent professional expertise of the baker. The traditional Stollen is the folded Stollen, and not the Stollen produced in a baking pan. This truth reveals the real talent of a Stollen baker, due to the fact the folded Stollen, probably stuffed with Marzipan or Persipan, are much more tough to do.
