Originally from Germany, Markus Jaeger produces a variety of German-style bread and cakes in his North Vancouver bakery. He is looking forward to presenting the famous Christstollen during the Vancouver Christmas Market.
Stollen is a bread-like fruitcake made with yeast, water, flour, and usually with zest added to the dough. Candied orange peel and candied citrus peel, raisins, almonds, and different spices such as cardamom and cinnamon are added. Except for the added fruit, the dough is quite low in sugar. The finished cake is sprinkled with icing sugar. What a delicious tradition!
