Stollen Muffins


For the Daugh:
115 grams butter at room temperature
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 cup milk, lukewarm
1 package baking powder (10 g)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raisins, soaked in rum the night before or ½ minutes in the microwave
1/4 cup dried cherries, finely diced
1/4 cup dried strawberries, finely diced
1/4 cup dried figs, finely diced
1/4 cup dried apricots, finely diced
1/4 cup dried papaya, finely diced
1/4 cup dried pineapple, finely diced
For the Filling:
For the Icing:
Colored coconut shavings


Preheat oven to 360F (about 180 C).
In a large bowl or bowl of electric mixer beat butter until turns white.
Add the icing sugar and beat until turns to fluffy cream.
Add egg yolks one at a time and beat well.
In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
Alternately add to butter mixture lukewarm milk and flour mixture and stir.
Add the grated lemon peel, almond or vanilla extract, almonds, raisins and diced dried fruit and mix.
Spoon the dough into the oiled muffin forms, filling about 2/3 of the forms.
Slice the marzipan (or make little marzipan balls) and dip 1 or ½ slice (or ball) in each muffin and try to cover with dough.
Bake in preheated to 360 F (about 180 C) oven for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, as in about 15 minutes may cover muffins with baking paper or cooking foil – so they will not burn.
Remove and spread with melted butter while hot and sprinkle with plenty of icing sugar and colored in red and green coconut shavings (or any other suitable :) Christmas muffins decorations).


It was a spontaneous idea to meke Stollen Muffins :)... We have got lots of dried fruits anyway for making the stollens... And I have got plenty of almond marzipan remaining also - even I might have saved a bit the marzipan for the stollens, as I haven't been really sure if it wouldn't spoil the daugh... So I have decided to improvise with these quick last minute Stollen-Muffins :)

But they are surprisingly tasty though!!
