To WOM it may concern: It was Stollen!December 20th, 2012 | Posted by in Daily life...
Like with most things in life, there are moments where you feel the passion within and the genuine interest in matters. At times, when writers come to visit us to learn about a certain topic, I feel like it almost turns to boredom for them, no matter how exciting we try to make it, maybe it’s just a different level of passion… And at other times, there is this magic interaction, mixed with fun where our visitor, namely Mr. Wilson from WOM guide this time around, would be totally immersed in the topic.
Wilson visited us for Stollen making and we honestly had a great time baking!
We had long discussion on the Stollen history and whether it was with or without the almond filling to eventually divert on the importance of having the rich bread soaked in butter as a key point in the making. Butter makes things better – you bet! Once baked and while still hot, we brush it (if not soak it quickly!) in melted butter several times before dusting icing sugar. Once at room temperature, eating Stollen has to be one of the best thing ever invented after salty caramel and salted butter! :)
