In Germany, the Christmas Stollen is as much a part of Christmas as the Christmas tree or Lebkuchen. The tradition of this exquisite pastry probably goes back thousands of years, the first written mention of the Christstollen under this name was almost 600 years ago. From then on, its fame and popularity grew - even beyond the borders of Germany.
Also by tradition, the Stollen bakers guard their recipes like the apple of their eye: That is also the case with our bakers at Lebkuchen-Schmidt in Nuremberg. Nevertheless, they have revealed a little about the secret of its ingredients: The Christmas Stollen consists of finest yeast dough, into which numerous selected spices, nuts and of course raisins have been mixed - which ones and in what proportion they prefer to keep to themselves.
Of course, the Christmas Stollen has - again by tradition - the shape of the baby Jesus wrapped in a nappy and is sprinkled with lots of icing sugar, which is symbolic of the nappy.
Whether as a sweet accompaniment to tea and coffee at Christmas time or as a Christmas present: Our Christmas Stollen, which you can also buy here in our online shop, will surprise your senses of taste in a Christmassy way!
