Germany is the land of Christmas, and in Christmas-land there is a sweet, fruit and nut bread called stollen (pronounced shhto-len). It's akin to Italian panettone, but a bit denser, baked in a loaf and is topped with powdered sugar. I read the first recipe reference to this holiday favorite from Dresden was in the early 1300s. Here I gave in to the mini-muffin/cupcake craze and turned them into bite-sized treats that you could serve along holiday cookies and bars.

The service's writers are available 24/7, so you can always count on a timely delivery of your paper.
You can also opt for a service that can do my paper for me cheaply, but only if you choose one that's reliable. Cheap writing services are unreliable and may not complete your project on time. Therefore, you must choose a reputable service that will do it on time and meets your needs. You may not want to spend too much on a cheap service that will only end up costing you more money in the long run.
If you're worried about plagiarism, consider hiring a research paper writer. You can contact them directly and get a finished paper within minutes. And the best part is, it's legal! As long as you choose a reputable writing company, you'll be safe. They never break the law and deliver non-plagiarized content.

Moreover, you need to ensure that the paper writer you're hiring is reputable and can deliver the type of work you need. There are many freelance writers online that will do the job for you, so you need to be sure that the writer you hire can deliver a quality paper. However, you should also check the online reviews of the company you're choosing before ordering from them. You should order research papers only when you're certain that the service you're choosing will meet your expectations.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup currants
  • 1/2 cup dark rum or orange juice
  • 1 cup milk, warmed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, semi-melted
  • 1/4 cup honey, warmed slightly
  • 1 egg
  • 4 cups plus 2 Tbsp flour, divided
  • 1 package/scant 1 Tbsp yeast
  • 1 tsp salt and ground cinnamon, each
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 cup candied lemon and orange peel, diced
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • Powdered sugar, garnish

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, pour dark rum or orange juice over currants. Let sit 1-2 hours. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a bread machine bowl, add wet ingredients (milk through egg). Then add 4 cups flour evenly over top. In three corners make little wells. Add yeast to one, salt to one and cinnamon and cardamom to the third. Cover over wells, and set the bowl in the bread machine. Start on dough setting.
  3. When complete, punch dough down and add drained currants, candied peels, almonds and remaining 2 Tbsp flour.
  4. Restart on dough setting. After 5 minutes, stop and turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes to make sure nuts and fruit are evenly distributed. Add dough to a large bowl sprayed with cooking spray, cover with a kitchen towel and put in a warm place for 1 hour to rise.
  5. Divide dough into balls, and place in cooking spray lined mini-muffin cups. Put in a warm place covered with a kitchen towel for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake 10-12 minutes until lightly browned on top.
  7. Cool on a rack and then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm.
