After reading about Stokes’ Christmas Stollen all these years I decided to try a store bought version of this delicacy. I cut off several slices and warmed them up in the microwave. I have to say that this was not one of the better ones that I have had. On the other hand, I forgot to spread some butter on the slices prior to nuking them and I think that this would have made a difference in the taste. Some rum sauce would have been nice too.
I will give it another try tomorrow and see if the improvements work. Last year’s Stollen was pretty darn good and it actually was made in Germany. This year’s version was made in Cincinnati.
