Stollen Bread is Back!
I can’t believe Christmas is already upon us! It can be hectic trying to figure out what to get for your awesome neighbors or what to bring to your Christmas parties. May I suggest Harmons Stollen Bread? Stollen is a fruitcake type of bread with an almond filling. It started back in the 15th century (some say it was even earlier than that) in Dresden, Germany. It was made at Christmas time and was originally made without butter or milk. Oil was used instead because there was a ban on the use of butter in baked goods. After the ban was lifted bakers started putting their own spin on the recipe. At Harmons it is made from scratch and we of course use butter as well as candied fruit and almond filling. I have had some Stollen recipes that were a bit too dense and dry for me, but ours is moist and very flavorful. Stollen Bread will be available from now through December!
