    I love this bread! It is traditionally served at Christmas and using a bread machine makes the whole process a lot easier.

    Perhaps it is because I live at a higher elevation in Alberta, Canada, but I had to add an extra cup of flour in order to make this recipe work. Having said that, it is as good as most stollen I’ve tasted.  -  10 Dec 2017
