Christmas Buche / Stollen

Hi guys!

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
  • marzipan
  • green and/or white decorations
  • mikado sticks or toothpicks (if you warn your guests!)
  • powdered sugar
  • melted chocolate
  • baking sheet lined with parshment paper


How to:

  1. Make your chocolate mousse.
  2. Preheat the oven at 200°c.
  3. Whip the eggs and the sugar until it becomes a somewhat white mass.
  4. Sift the flour and whisk it gently through the batter.
  5. Put it on the baking sheet lined with parshment paper and make sure it’s evenly spread.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Let it cool a bit.
  8. Spread 1/3th of the chocolate mousse on the biscuit.
  9. Roll it up and place with the end on the bottom.
  10. Fill a piping bag with the remains and pipe lines over the roll.
  11. Use your fork to make it look like a tree.
  12. Shape your marzipan into cones so they will end up looking like trees.
  13. Stick a mikado cookie or toothpick in the tree and dip it in the melted chocolate.
  14. 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.
  15. Once the trees are cold enough, place them on your stollen.
  16. Tadaaaaa!

      1. I’m good. Had been working. Then went to college, 3 different courses so it’s been full on. Got on to a two year course next year, part time so feeling excited at the changes. Been developing my jewellery brand too. You? xx
