Wicklewood’s Gluten Free Stollen

"Stollen is a German fruitbread traditionally eaten at Christmas, the design of the loaf is said to represent the baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling, which I find so sweet, but not as sweet as the delicious marzipan that runs through the centre of the loaf… I have adapted this recipe to make it gluten free, and I am currently working on a recipe for sugar free marzipan to make a low carb version."

I am in the process of starting my own business, which initially was exclusively targeted at ceoliacs, but thanks to my new husband and his diabetes, we hope to create food that is not only gluten free and sugar free or low carb, but will also cater for those amongst us with a whatever attitude to healthy food...Yes I do have one left at home,,bring on the empty nest.</p> <p><span><span><strong>The other man in my life</strong></span></span></p> <p><img title=The src=http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/5314/file4226.jpg alt=width=320 height=213 /></p>
