This is a great twist on an old favorite. Grandma has had it a long time and it makes it every year. It's a great way to use up leftover stollen that's gone stale and no one will eat. (if there are any leftovers :D ) Prepare ahead as this does need to chill for 1 - 2 hours before baking. Zaar World Tour 05

I substituted the canned cherries for fresh strawberries and bananas. I also added a tiny splash of cognac. Great recipe, easy to follow (and customize), short list of ingredients needed. :)
