Preparation steps

Walnut Stollen preparation step 1

Heat the milk until lukewarm in a small pot. Crumble yeast into milk and stir to dissolve.

Walnut Stollen preparation step 2

Coarsely chop walnuts in a mini chopper or with a large knife. Cut mango pieces into thin strips and finely dice apricots.

Walnut Stollen preparation step 3

Combine both flours, sugar, vanilla sugar, butter, oil, egg, quark and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Pour in yeast-milk mixture and knead with dough hook of a hand mixer until smooth.

Walnut Stollen preparation step 4

Add walnuts and dried fruit to the dough and knead again briefly. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Walnut Stollen preparation step 5

Place the dough on a floured work surface and knead with your hands. Pat into an oval shape (about 25 x 20 cm) (approximately 8 x 10 inches). Roll up dough starting from a long side into a log.
