Probably the most traditional Christmas cake in Germany is the Stollen. In a classic recipe, sultanas, orange peel and lemon are processed and the dough is formed into an oval before baking. We refine the pastries this year with oranges, macadamia nuts and fruity cranberries.

Place one after the other on baking tray covered with baking paper, put a ca. 80 cm long aluminum foil strip (overlapping a bit). Plug together with paper clips. Bake in a hot oven (180 degrees, second from below) for 30-35 minutes.
