I got this stollen recipe while I was Head Baker at the Dorchester. It's packed with dried fruit and filled with a marzipan surprise. It makes a perfect food gift at Christmas.

Simply delicious, easy to make French bread rolls - perfect for a dinner party or family lunch. Dough can be made in mixer, bread maker or by hand. Brush before baking with a glaze of 1 beaten egg white mixed with 1 tablespoon water if desired. You can also top with poppy seeds or sesame seeds.

A Christmas favourite in Poland, you may have tried similar poppy seed cakes elsewhere in Eastern Europe. Enjoy with a hot cuppa.
