Quote from: Dr. MD MD on October 28, 2019, 11:29:56 PMIâ€™d say you check every box especially seductive, of course.
Quote from: DigitalPigSnuggler on October 29, 2019, 12:34:55 AMNice to hear that I check off all of your boxes. And the come-on to pursue the seductive is crude, but strangely arousing. What are you doing tonight? Up for a little frottage?

Quote from: Dr. MD MD on December 22, 2019, 12:09:26 PMEasy, baby! Find something to put rum into.
Quote from: K_Dubb on December 22, 2019, 12:36:13 PMHaha you should smell the stollen I made yesterday. That fruit is soaked! Here they are cooling on the deck while I smoke -- this is before you rub powdered sugar all over them. One with a giant log of regular almond marzipan and one with pistachio.
Quote from: Liberace! on December 22, 2019, 05:10:10 PMThere was a problem with the "theme" the forum software is using. Should be fixed now.
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on December 22, 2019, 05:13:27 PMIt is. It just flipped back to normal for me about 10-15 minutes ago.

Quote from: WOTR on December 22, 2019, 03:28:33 PMrecipe? My Oma used to make it starting a few weeks before Christmas. And then had a christmas drink with alcohol soaked fruit that I recall as being pronounced Bola. Good memories.
Quote from: K_Dubb on December 22, 2019, 06:57:01 PMSure, I use David Lebovitz's just because I like his stuff but he has tinkered with it so I try to put it back to what I remember as traditional.https://www.davidlebovitz.com/stollen/So no cranberries or cherries, just extra of the other fruits (I don't measure but there should be appreciably more fruit and nuts than dough by volume in whatever proportions you prefer) and no ginger (I don't remember that at all from the real Dresden ones) and no rye flour (what is he thinking?) and I easily double the spices and lean heavily on the cardamom because I am Norwegian.You don't need a mixer -- I just do it by hand -- since there is so much butter you will never get real gluten development, and even though it is a very heavy dough the slippery, wet mass is easy to mix the fruit and nuts in especially if you hold off on the last bit of flour until everything is in there.You can vary the texture from dense stodge (which I prefer, and slices nicely) to pretty airy if you just let it sit. I bake it just when it looks a little bigger -- by no means double -- but you could let it sit all night and it will just keep growing. I also do two monumental loaves instead of his four little ones, and put homemade marzipan (which is easy) which he does not.I think you can quick-age it by wrapping and freezing solid, then defrosting. This kills off any yeasty flavors from any underbaked dough (it really is dense) and seems to distribute and mellow the spices nicely. He says wait two days but if you freeze it overnight and defrost it the next day it will be ready on Christmas.
Quote from: WOTR on December 24, 2019, 02:56:52 PMThanks. I always wondered why she froze it even if it was being served almost immediately. I am going to print this off and ask her what else she added or what was omitted... Also, I discovered that it is Bowle. Basically, it just translates to "punch" (which is not much help.) My mother or aunt will probably recall. If not, I will ask Oma. I really wish she kept recipes rather than just doing everything by "feel."
