Stollen bread is an amazing stuffed German sweet bread thatís filled with raisins, ginger and nuts that pair perfectly with the sweet and dense, buttery dough.

This is one of those treats thatís just right for any special occasion, a unique blend of textures and flavors wrapped up into a moist loaf of sweet bread.
