I have 4 stollen in my kitchen. My house smells very almondy, with a small hint of PineSol from the wall & cabinet cleaning. Oh well.
When I was in Canada over the summer, I stopped at a German deli with my mother. They had poppy-seed filling in a can, like a pie filling. I used to sell poppy seed cake when I worked at the german bakery in Old World, and it was one of my favorite cakes. It's a LOT of poppy seeds. If a poppy seed muffin can mess up your drug screening for opiates, you'd better not eat any of this stollen if you're applying for a job.
One almond stollen is for Carolyn - no raisins or citronat or any of that. Just a 3 cups of ground almonds worked into the dough. It's really good tho :) The other one will be for Open House next week.
One poppy seed stollen is for the Open House as well, and then the other is just for our family to enjoy during Advent. Or maybe it will just be me... heh. I'm okay with that!
