Stollen has been sold at the Dresden Christmas market since the 15th century. Each year the city puts on a Stollen Festival to celebrate the food that takes its name from the Saxon city. In imitation of the gigantic Stollen baked in the city in 1730 on the occasion of Augustus the Strong's grand festival of baroque proportions, each year the bakers of Dresden produce a 3000 to 4000 kg stollen. It is cut into half-pound sections and served to the festival visitors. The following recipe won't supply an entire city but the two 12-inch loaves it produces will feed a good-sized family.
Based on a recipe from German Traditional Cooking by Tony Schmaeling
A nice fall bread excellent spread with cream cheese or butter. Sort of on the idea of a pumpkin bread. This was a recipe from Lord & Taylor from quite a few years ago. They had a salute to Savannah Geeorgia and were serving miniatures of this bread at their store resturants. Our Local Paper snagged the recipe from their chef.
A rich buttery and decadent dessert made famous at Furrs Cafateria in Texas. While the original is a trade secret, a former employee of Furrs experimented after watching the chef make it. she says this came close enogh to the original for her. Since she worked there and had this almost every day i'll take her word for it. Enjoy :)
reduced calorie. Fancy looking, yet easy to make. The combination and colors make it equally good as a Summer time treat or Valentines day dessert. For the US Fourth of July or Memorial day Holidays try garnishing the top with some fresh strawberries and blueberries, to give it a red, white & blue flag motif.
Linda Dembroski who originated the recipe said:

Use your favorite mix of crisp salad greens For this colorful, main dish salad; topped with chicken strips and a zesty raspberry chipotle vinaigrette. Works equally well at a dinner table or an outdoor barbecue picnic table.
Italian hearty country style meal. Easy to prepare with a wonderful old world flavor. Can be eaten as is with a glass of wine and some warm Italian bread, or it can be served Stroganoff style over noodles or rice.
Sticky toffee pudding that is still made to John Tovey's original recipe. Some even say it's the best in the world. Most desserts are worthy of applause, but rare is the one that warrants a standing ovation, as does this authentic toffee pudding.
This is a basic Indian Bread Somewhat like a Pita. The cookbook says that besides "Chappati" it is also known as "Phulka". It does not explain the difference between the two names so I assume it's a regional or dialect issue.
