Many people eat Stollen during the Christmas holiday. I use the chopped candied fruit that you would use for fruit cake. This coffee cake bakes up light and delicious. You can even prepare it the night before, cover it and then in the morning take the cover off and bake it.

I used butter,Didn't bother toasting the pecans (I tend to burn them), Used more fruit than called for as I didn't want about 1/2 cup fruit left over. Dusted the fruit with some of the flour mixture so it wouldn't stick together. Used an 8'X 11" pan and cooked it about 55 minutes before it was done. I found it very good and I loved the topping, thanks for a nice recipe.
