Check out what my pals over at Group Recipes had to say about this recipe:


by Bessie Trull Law

While pines are bent with ice and snow,

Our firesides have a golden glow

Reflected in the eyes that see

The symbol of a Christmas tree.

The luscious cakes are baked and iced,

The fruit for stollens mixed and spiced,

While stockings dangle side by side.

What a precious poem!

1 cup Land O Lakes butter,

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.
