DIRECTIONS

  • Make a soft, pliable yeast dough from the first 6 ingredients and let stand in bowl for 10 minutes.
  • Knead the lemon peel, zest, almonds, and rum into the dough.
  • When all other ingredients are equally distributed, add the raisins.
  • Roll into an oval and place on a greased baking sheet. Let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Still on baking sheet, wrap dough well in aluminium foil and store in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
  • Remove from refrigerator and take off foil. Sprinkle flour around the loaf to prevent the dough from spreading.
  • Place loaf in a pre-heated 350-400° oven and bake 50-60 minutes, till pale gold in color. Remove from oven.
  • Brush with melted butter and dust with Confectioner's sugar. Repeat until butter and sugar are used up.
  • Stollen should have a thick, white layer.
