Ingredients

Instructions

1
Soak the Gem dried fruits with the orange juice and set aside.
2
To the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add the flour, salt, mixed spice, sugar, yeast, milk, egg yolks and butter.
3
Mix to form a dough.
4
Mix this for 5-8 minutes until you are left with a smooth elastic dough.
5
Place dough into an oiled bowl and leave somewhere warm to prove until almost doubled in size.
6
Once this stage is reached, add the dough back into the mixing bowl, drain any excess liquid from the soaking fruit and just add the fruit and mix until incorporated.
7
Turn this dough out onto a floured surface and roll into an oval shape.
8
Taking the Gem marzipan, roll this into a sausage shape and place this in the centre of the dough. Make sure its not sticking out the ends, it needs to fit into the dough.
9
Fold one side of the dough over the marzipan and fold the other side up to meet it, encasing the marzipan in the centre.
10
Place on a lined tray and cover with a cloth and leave somewhere warm to prove until its almost doubled in size.
11
Preheat your oven to 200C-180C fan.
12
Egg wash the stollen and bake for 15 minutes.
13
Drop the oven to 150C-130C fan and bake for a further 35-40 minutes.
14
Once baked, remove and allow to cool slightly.
15
Finish by brushing with melted butter and dust generously with Gem icing sugar.
