I’m beginning to freak out. Just a little. I had all these Christmas recipes I wanted to try but there’s just not enough time to make all of them! I should have taken this week off… Next year I might. One week to bake bake bake and bake! No work, no distractions, just one focus: Christmas. Sounds like a plan, right? Although I didn’t have that much quality time with my kitchen, I did manage to make a little Christmas stollen! Yay 😀
What we need for 6 portions:
- 3 eggs
- 95 g caster sugar
- 60 g flour
- 35 g cornstarch
- Chocolate mousse
- green and/or white decorations
- mikado sticks or toothpicks (if you warn your guests!)
- powdered sugar
- melted chocolate
- baking sheet lined with parshment paper
- Make your chocolate mousse.
- Preheat the oven at 200°c.
- Whip the eggs and the sugar until it becomes a somewhat white mass.
- Sift the flour and whisk it gently through the batter.
- Put it on the baking sheet lined with parshment paper and make sure it’s evenly spread.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- Let it cool a bit.
- Spread 1/3th of the chocolate mousse on the biscuit.
- Roll it up and place with the end on the bottom.
- Fill a piping bag with the remains and pipe lines over the roll.
- Use your fork to make it look like a tree.
- Shape your marzipan into cones so they will end up looking like trees.
- Stick a mikado cookie or toothpick in the tree and dip it in the melted chocolate.
- Roll the tree through your decorations and place on a piece of parshment paper in the fridge. This will make sure the tree stays in shape.
- Once the trees are cold enough, place them on your stollen.
