Trust us, this is no fruit cake. Stollen bread (pronounced shtoe-len) is a German delicacy that has been made around Christmas time for hundreds of years. This cake-like bread is chock full of dried fruit, nuts and spices, making it similar to a mulled wine—just without the vino.

The traditional version includes candied citrus peels, raisins, almonds, cinnamon, cardamom but other variations can include everything from rum and vanilla to marzipan and other dried fruits. Don’t expect this bread to be super sweet. When it was created all the way back in the 1500s, sugar was expensive and rarely a part of the common household. However, modern versions make up for it with a powdered sugar or icing coating, adding that extra pop of sweetness we’ve all come to know and love.
