Wow, has it been a week since my last post? It’s been busy. But that hasn’t stopped me from eating. And eating more. And anything tasty that only comes out around Christmas time. I started off the day with a Marzipan glazed doughnut (in the shape of a star!). And ended the day with Marzipan stollen. It must be the Eastern European in me. I like this cake, I like poppy seed rolls, I like it all.
I bought this to bring home with me at Christmas because my mom put in a request for the one a got her last year. This is a different brand as the other one came from a store that went out of business. It’s been here a week now, and after she told me she found one, we decided to eat this one. And if it was good, I’d get another to bring home.
Stollen is a bread/cake like baked good, traditionally a German thing. Usually covered in powdered sugar, and studded with raisins and fruit. This one tasted a lot like panettone (which I ate a ton of last year). I have to give it a thumbs up. The marzipan in the middle was a little treat.
