today I am really happy to skip my usual Munch my Monday post and instead of it jump on the bandwagon of Madison’s 12 Days of Allergy-Free Christmas Recipes round-up.
Thanks again Madison for this great idea and especially for asking me to join it. Madison asked me to share my recipe of allergy friendly christmas stollen when she saw me getting a bit carried away by worshipping this delicious christmas treat. Actually the honor for the recipe is not mine to take. It was my lovely mother-in-law who came up with it. I loved her stollen but couldn’t really have it as I have some dietary restrictions. So obviously I was thrilled be the idea of compiling a collection of allergy friendly recipes.
For day 4 I will give you some healthy and dietary friendly recipes centered all around bread.
That basically means you will find some sweet and savory breads and fruit cake recipes here today. As I do not eat wheat or dairy products I will be focusing on these topics. I am eating eggs but I am open to vegan recipes as well so I have included some vegan alternatives into this round-up, too. I usually do not eat sugar. I thinks it’s unhealthy and I always have a fussy stomach when I had sugar the previous day. All the recipes I feature are sugar-free despite the actual stollen recipe. This one simply doesn’t work without sugar. But it’s Christmas so let’s not deny ourselves all the fun! And nobody sais you’ll have to eat half a stollen at once. (I think I could though because this recipe is simply too delicious to stop!)
Okay, enough prep talk. Let’s get down to business:
- 2 pounds whole grain flour ( I use spelt)
- 1 ounce baking powder
- 6 eggs
- 200g margarine
- 100g coconut fat
- 300g sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp rum
- 1 pinch of salt
- 100g candied lemon peel
- 100g candied orange peel
- 250g raisins
- 250g ground almonds
- Mix together flour, baking powder, eggs, margarine, coconut fat, sugar, vanilla extract, rum and salt
- Knead the dough fast until fluffy
- In a different bowl mix together candied lemon peel, candied orange peel, raisins and ground almonds. My family doesn’t like the candid peel so we blend it until smooth and add it to the dough. You get the taste but don’t have the sticky consistency. As a second plus the taste spreads more even.
- Combine the two doughs and knead it with your hands until well blended
- Separate the dough into two equal parts and place each bread-shaped half on a different baking pan
- Bake in a fan oven at 170-190°C fos about 60-75 minutes
- It is perfect when you stab a wooden stick into the bread and it comes out clean
- When it comes out of the oven rub it with margarine and sprinkle with icing sugar
- When cold, wrap it in aluminum foil
- Now there comes the tough part: It’s best when you let it set for about 3 weeks
