This Favorina (LIDL) Finest Marzipan Stollen (pronounced 'shtollen'), with sultanas and hazelnuts, is a rich and sticky fruit bread, laced with marzipan and doused in icing sugar.
Its origins can be traced back to the Middle Ages when it was baked to celebrate the lifting of a ban on butter in Advent (the only fat that bakers had been able to use previously was turnip oil)

Nearly Christmas...

DON'T EAT STOLEN CAKE!

IT'S A CRIMINAL OFFENCE.

Probably.

Nom nom nom...


Got a bit sick of it by Christmas last year...just can't resist...;)
Just gotta make my own this year

Still got one in the freezer from 4 years ago. Bought a few extra as they only appear once a year and then....didn't finish it. Still good though

I thought stolen cake was from Tesco?

never tried but must!

Did you notice if they have the chocolate covered gingerbread in yet? Definitely worth a trip if they do.

Love it, Love it, Love it !..

This cake is delicious by the way for anyone that has not tried it, its like stuffing an iced belgian bun and a fruit cake in your gob at the same time lol.

Just thinking of this cake can make your weight increase.

Heat it up and serve with custard. That will also make it easier to eat a whole one.

they have the lovely little stollen bites too! we bought 2 packets as last year they'd sold out before December

It's ok I thought of Paul Daniels in a bikini and vomited, off to get some therapy now.

Love it

Love Stollen, gonna have to make my annual purchase of this (gives me a bit longer to eat it this year.

Had these last year instead - very nice! Encourages me to actually eat a smaller portion than slicing off the full cake too.

His hair makes him 6'8", wasn't my photoshop, I just plagarised the image

If you have never tried German Christmas cake, you NEED to! I had it when I was in Year 8 at school when I was learning about German Christmas traditions. So good!

Just bought some of the bites. Heaven.

NOM

Not the best way to use your calorie intake probably the worst type of cake i have tried.

I wonder what size it is this year? A few years back it was huge but it's been subject to high shrinkflation over last few years!

Went in there last December to get a couple and there was no sign of any whatsoever. Not happy (still bought the country's cheapest crayfish tails though...)

Do these get smaller each year or is it just me!

That didnt work for me, i just bought loads of packs! The bite size ones are (for me) more practical and tastier than the large ones. Ill be buying plenty again this year!

What would the Danish Health spokes person have made of the turnip oil that this delicacy circumvented (See deal title)?

Good for rubbing on your head?
