  • Finely chopped
  • 1/2 c Milk
  • 2 c Sourdough starter
  • -sponge*
  • 1/2 c Golden raisins
  • 1/2 c Seedless raisins
  • 1/2 c Currants
  • 1/2 c Slivered almonds
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Almond flavoring
  • 1 ts Grated lemon peel
  • 5 c All-purpose
  • -flour, unsifted
  • 1 Egg white, beat w/1 Tb water
  • 1/4 c Butter, melted
  • 1/3 c Powdered sugar

  • 2 Eggs


In small pan combine milk, butter and sugar. Place over medium heat and
bring mixture to scalding, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Set aside to
cool. Beat the eggs into the cooled mixture; add this mixture to the 2
cups of sourdough starter, beat until well blended. Add salt, almond
flavoring, lemon peel and 3 cups of the flour. Mix until well-blended.
Stir in orange peel, raisins, currants and almonds. Add enough flour to
knead. Turn out onto a floured board and knead until smooth and elastic,
about 10 minutes. Turn dough over in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in
a warm place until double in size. Punch dough down; divide in half. On a
lightly greased baking sheet shape the dough, each half, into a 7x9-inch
oval, about 1 inch thick. Brush the surface with some of the egg-white
mixture, then crease ovals and fold them lengthwise, but not all the way
over leaving a 2" lap on bottom. Brush top with egg-white mixture . Cover
and let rise until double in size. Bake in 375F oven for 40 minutes or
until richly browned. Brush top with melted butter and sift the powdered
sugar over top. Return Stollens to oven and bake 3 minutes longer to set
sugar. Cool on wire racks. *Take sourdough starter out of refrigerator the
night before and mix with 2 cups water, 2 cups flour and 1 tablespoon
sugar. Cover. Let set overnight. Next morning put original amount of
starter back in refrigerator and use the rest for the stollen.
