If there is something belonging to Christmas as irrefutable as Christmas trees and Santa, it’s Christmas Stollen. Even Knecht Ruprecht is powerless in the face of the Christmas pastry’s long tradition: The first recorded mention of Christmas Stollen in Dresden is dated as early as 1474. Since that time it has been an integral part of family related Christmas traditions in the best sense of the word – every family possessed their own closely guarded Stollen recipe.
Though until today all genuine Dresden Christmas Stollen share several quality characteristics: They are lovingly made by hand, containing only the finest ingredients – and ten percent more butter then a regular Butter Stollen. And this being the reason why the Dresden Christmas Stollen is so popular and sought-after even beyond Saxony’s borders.
