Christstollen is a traditional German, a dense fruit bread cake-like made with yeast, water and flour, with nut, spices and dried or candied fruit. 

Other ingredients: mixed spices( [ginger bread spices]) content: nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, fennel, star anise.... milk, sugar, butter, almond. 

Some recipe is with a rolled marzipan/almond paste into the stollen, you can add into the stollen if you like. This is a bakery recipe where i worked  in Switzerland, normally every years we start baking Christstollen around end of November -  2nd week of December. Stollen is salthered with melted unsalted butter and rolled in caster sugar [instead icing sugar] resulting in a moister product and keep longer and better, The dried fruits macerated in rum or brandy for a superior tasting bread.

The texture dense with full with rum fruit bread, i like the taste with spices.
