German Christmas Stollen

“As a traditional German fruitcake with a profound history, it’s no wonder that there are as many variations of stollen as there are people who make it. This version includes a rich filling of marzipan, which adds to the decadence of the bread-like cake. Stollen’s dense butter and sugar coating makes it an excellent candidate for preparing ahead of the busy holiday season, wrapping, and giving to friends and family up to 2 weeks later.”

Chai Spiced Tea Loaves

“Chai spice tastes great in your tea mug and even better in these moist and tender loaf cakes. Bake these do-ahead gifts up to three months ahead — just cool them, wrap tightly in foil, and freeze. When ready to share, thaw at room temperature, unwrapped (to prevent condensation from building up inside the foil), and gift wrap as desired. If you don’t have mini loaf pans, you can find the disposable aluminum ones in your supermarket.”
