Enjoy These 7 Holiday Treats This Christmas Season!

5. German Stollen Bread


There is this amazing German restaurant in Frankenmuth, Michigan called “The Bavarian Inn.” The entire place is German-themed. In fact, the entire city is German themed and dubbed as “Little Bavaria” throughout the world. When my family and I still lived in Michigan we were only 45 minutes from this very special place. My husband would take me to the Bavarian Inn every year on my birthday. Boy, do I miss going there! Anyway, the restaurant gave you all kinds of good stuff toe at while you were waiting for your main course. One of hose goodies was stollen bread.


This bread is amazing! It’s got dried fruits and nuts in the middle and tastes great with homemade preserves or apple butter. I love how Christmasy the bread is and I plan to make a few loaves for the holiday season to serve to my family and friends. You’ll be surprised at how easy stollen bread is to make and doesn’t require much handiwork at all. This recipe is easy to double so why not make two loaves and give one away to a friend 🙂

Quick Tip:This recipe is very easy to double if you need to.


I love Frankenmuth. I lived in the Detroit area from the age of 20 to 50 so it was a special treat to drive several hours for dinner. There were two restaurants across the street from each other and everyone had a favorite, Bavarian Inn or Zenhnder’s. My ex and his family only ate at Zehnder’s, which I did not consider worth the drive. THEN I discovered the Bavarian Inn and was amazed at how deliciously different the food was from Zehnder’s. While I was never a fan of the stollen I was definitely a fan of the chicken dinner and would make the trip every Spring, Summer and Fall. Not just for the food but for the shopping, as well. This was long before the Outlet Mall opened so the only shopping was in Frankenmuth and the Christmas Store and the Clock Shop were always a delight. Thanks for the Memory!

I am looking for a recipe for using a white cake mix and peppermint flavored candy pieces..I saw it on a quick ad..but didn’t find it again.
