Quark Stollen

My Favourite version of German Stollen cake – Quark is a type of fresh dairy product, you will find it in most British supermarkets near the cheese. If you don’t like dry stollen, this version is really moist and tasty

  4. Cream the butter with a mixer until smooth. Add sugar and vanilla sugar to butter and mix a few more minutes until the butter has absorbed the sugar. Add eggs one-at-a-time, allowing the butter to absorb the egg before adding the second one. If the egg begins to scramble, add 1 teaspoon of the flour and mix until smooth. Add quark, lemon zest, almond extract, and salt. Mix until smooth.
  5. Add flour to the butter mixture. Mix in ground and chopped almonds, candies orange and lemon peels, and raisins.
  6. Place dough onto a floured surface. Flatten the dough into a large oval shape. Fold over one side about half way over the dough. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake Stollen for 60-65 minutes or until a stick poked into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Allow stollen to cool. Dust with powdered sugar.
