My mom died before she could write down her stollen recipe. It has been over five years since we had it. After making this recipe, it was everything that I remembered hers to be.

This is pretty close to the recipe I have used for years from my great grandfather, a German baker. However, I must comment on one review so others do not try this. If you want stollen, you need to use cardamom. Nutmeg belongs in eggnog.

If you are using quick yeast in the jar the measurement is 2 1/2 tablespoons. Very nice dough.
