Food Fare: German RecipesDresden Christmas Loaf




Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Form a soft, pliable yeast dough; allow to stand in bowl for ten minutes.



Knead the spices into dough. When ingredients are equally distributed, add raisins. Roll into an oval shape and place on a greased baking sheet. Allow to rest for ten to fifteen minutes. Wrap dough resting on baking sheet in aluminum foil; store in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Remove dough from refrigerator; remove foil. Sprinkle flour around loaf to prevent the dough from spreading. Place loaf in a pre-heated 350 to 400-degree F oven; bake for fifty to sixty minutes, or until loaf is pale gold in color. Remove from oven and allow to cool.



Brush loaf with melted butter; dust with confectioners' sugar. Repeat with remaining butter and sugar. Slice and serve.


Note: Weihnachtsstollen should have a thick, white layer.
