How to Make Stollen (Folded)

Follow the recipe for making the dough here

Lay out one piece and form it into a large oval about 1/2 inch thick

I filled this one with Marzipan and a few extra cherry halves

Then I folded one third of the dough toward the center.


Fold the other third of the dough overlapping the first fold and make a ridge as shown. Then fold the other side over and make a ridge on top.

Place on a greased baking sheet, and brush with egg wash ( 1 egg and 1 tblsp water beaten)

Bake in a 325- 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes....
.....till lightly brown, and the bottom should have a crispy crust also.
One test is if it thumps a bit when you tap the bottom that is a good sign it's done.
This is one traditional way to serve Stollen. Sprinke a generous amount of powdered sugar on top.

Stollen Braided.
