    I haven't made this yet but have printed the recipe. Made stollen for years. For those who don't use much whole wheat flour, store it in the freezer and it will last a lot longer. Will also add a little cardamon to stollen!

    Come on people. this is a fruit cake. Of course its going to have lots of ingredients! I don't eat it myself, but because it is on the healthy side, I will try making it for my husband who loves fruit cake and is part German. And as mentioned before, it is a holiday treat, not made everyday. - 12/5/08

    This looks so good-I love fruitcakes and I love bread and I love wholegrains! Hard to streamline this type of recipe, they're just naturally full of all kinds of good things...unlike the unhealthy ones that are mainly full of 3 ingredients: white flour, white sugar & fat. I plan to try this one! - 12/5/08

    I agree, that there are a lot of ingredients, but most of them are ones I have on hand- mostly basic pantry items except for the wheat germ, flax seed, and rum (which I wish I had on hand). I think I"ll try it this weekend, and then maybe make one for a potluck it comes out. - 12/5/08

    This recipe sounds very good. I love stollen. I actually have all the ingredients on hand as I am really getting into whole grains and have a hard time finding recipes to use them. I do add many to bread I make in the breadmaker. I am always a little intimidated by yeast breads, but I will try. - 12/5/07

    This is a great update on a classic holiday bread. Don't be intimidated by the ingredient list. Remember, it's a special holiday breadn not one you bake twice a month. - 12/5/07

    I won't make it either once I saw not only the ton of ingred, i.e. wheat germ and wheat bran.. white flour and wheat flour, cornmeal even, and only a couple of tablespoons. Why bother?! The reason I won't is food processor gets used AND rolling it out. That'd be OK with fewer ingred. Its too much! - 12/5/07

    I would try this recipe because there aren't many out there with whole wheat flour. I also like the fact that it is very low fat and has 2.2 gms of fiber. Thanks! - 12/5/07
