Shortcut Christmas Stollen

Stollen is a traditional German rum soaked fruit and nut filled yeast bread popular during the Christmas season. 
Today I'm sharing a Christmas bread recipe that's been a tradition in our family for as long as I can remember. My mother is German so every Christmas mom made a homemade traditional Stollen, pronounced (shto-lun). This delicious rum soaked fruit and nut yeast bread is a German classic served during the Christmas holiday. 

Most folks refer to Stollen as a German fruitcake, but it's not a cake at all and more of a buttery sweet bread filled with candied fruit, rum soaked golden raisins, cherries, cranberries, slivered almonds and covered in powdered sugar. Marzipan can also be added to make a "Marzipanstollen", but I prefer the fruit and nut version (Stollen).
