Stollen–A Daring Baker Christmas Edition

With the holiday, life has been more hectic ’round these parts and I am way behind posting my Daring Baker challenge! Well, still technically it’s the 27th, but still, I should be getting ready for bed!

The 2010 December Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Penny of Sweet Sadie’s Baking. She chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ to make Stollen. She adapted a friend’s family recipe and combined it with information from friends, techniques from Peter Reinhart’s book………and Martha Stewart’s demonstration.

I had heard of Stollen, but wasn’t quite sure what it is, OR how to say it (thank you, Wikipedia!). Doing it gluten-free seemed a bit of a challenge, but I decided on this recipe from for mini Stollen. I did one loaf and some baby bundts.

Truth be told, the batter looked totally unappetizing when I was in the midst of cooking, but they were absolutely delicious. Not only that, they were very easy to make and I appreciated that they were quite allergy friendly.

To see other Stollen masterpieces, do see the other Daring Bakers. And as always, it’s fun to play!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.
