Is stollen the same as fruitcake? While stollen and fruitcake share some similarities, they are actually two different cakes. Stollen is made with a yeasted dough, which gives it a light and fluffy texture. Fruitcake, on the other hand, is denser and more cake-like in consistency.
How do you serve Christmas stollen? There are many ways to enjoy stollen, but one of the most popular is to slice it and serve it with a dollop of butter or cream cheese. This rich and decadent treat is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season! It is typically powdered with sugar or covered in a glaze, and sometimes decorated with candied fruit.
