    Ja, I usually use a different stollen recipe but am now making as much sourdough as possible, so this sounds promising. Does it keep as well as traditional stollen, wrapped tightly? I like to send to my sister and others. Tusind tak. Og tak for Jeg har altid bagt meget men lærer altid noget nyt og bedre af dig. God Jul! Janne (jeg er dansker som har boet i Texas siden 1968).

    I found one problem with your awesome recipie…. in the written instructions the butter amount (and almond) do not change when you scale the recipie….
    So my stollen had twice the butter!! Lol added more flour in til it was worakable..but yeah umm wonder how it will go once I bake it.


    Should the butter be at room temperature or cold?

    • Room temperature. The recipe says to take out the butter and cube it while the dough is resting for an hour 🙂


    Thank you, just wanted to be sure!

    Amazing product. Made this last year. Making it again this year when weighing the levain sugar I noticed an error in the levain instructions. It indicates in the text instructions to use 10 g sugar/2 tablespoons. If you go by tablespoons the sugar is way too high as you’ll end up with closer to 27 grams of sugar. I didn’t pick it up at first and used a tablespoon measure. I knew something was wrong when my levain more than doubled in 4 hr I fortunately had time and remade the levain

    • Thank you 🙂

      I checked the recipe and it says 2 teaspoons, which is about 9 grams of sugar. I guess 2 1/8 would be a little closer 🙂
