Fate Brummie Stollen

Birmingham’s annual Frankfurt Christmas Market is one of the highlights of our Christmas. As the largest German Christmas market outside of Germany or Austria it has lots of stalls selling food, gifts and of course German beer. One of the things that fills many of the stalls is Stollen, and this low protein version is just as moist, fruity and moreish, so I hope you enjoy it. The Stollen freezes well, cut into portions, wrap well and when needed, just defrost and warm through in the microwave.


200g Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix

75g block margarine

60g light soft brown sugar

125g dried mixed fruit

1 tsp ground cinnamon

grated rind of 1 lemon

120ml water

little extra Fate All Purpose Mix to shape

icing sugar to sprinkle

Preheat the oven, Gas 6. 200°C

Place the Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix into a mixing bowl. Rub in the

block margarine until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, mixed dried fruit, cinnamon and lemon rind.

Add the water, and using a large metal spoon, mix well to form a smooth and

soft mixture. Leave to rest for 8-10 mins. The mixture will thicken.

Sprinkle the work surface with a little Fate All Purpose Mix and turn the Stollen mixture out. Dust your hands lightly with All Purpose mix and gently shape into a fat sausage shape

about 22cm (9 inches) long.

Place onto a greased baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 – 30 mins until golden brown, risen and a skewer pushed into the middle comes out clean. Place onto a wire rack and while the Stollen is still hot, sprinkle generously with icing sugar.

Leave to cool.
