    Not only am I disappointed in a lack of Homestar Runner jokes in this video but also the comments. Come on guys. One of the ingredients is literally Marzipan.

    You used marzipan, should've been spijs (dutch word, don't know the English word for it). The core of spijs is also very small compared to the bread.

    Marzipan is only marzipan when the almond ratio is greater than the sugar. When the sugar is greater than the almond it is then almond paste. Fyi

    Love the content but don't love the flickering light of the screen/display on the oven. Any way to cover that or keep it out of frame in videos so that people with photosensitivity (epilepsy, migraines, etc.) can enjoy without having to hide part of the screen? I've loved these videos for years, but have had trouble since the move to the new sets.

    "And it can last up to two weeks"... I'm German and there's this one story that goes round and round in my family about my grannie forgetting her Stollen for a solid YEAR and then serving it to her family for easter. And according to everybody having got a taste of that it was the most delicious Stollen they had ever had.

    Hot tip! You can make some oleo saccharum and that’s like 90% of the work of candy and orange peels and you get a really amazing citrus cocktail syrup.

    I try not to miss an episode, and I'm catching up on those I missed over Christmas. All that to say I was excited for this as my father is German and I've been eating Stollen every Christmas since I was a small child.

    I'm begging you in the name of my and the Stollens hometown Dresden to skip the marzipan. It doesn't make the Stollen any better. (Oh and you can not use to much butter on the outside, go for it)

  • Otto Lange

    it needs sooooooooooo much more marzipan and actually it needs almond paste and not marzipan! so you can spread it on the bread with butterrr

  • Maddie

    I actually hate Stollen, I just wanted to know how it's made. Maybe I'm gonna try a homemade version without raisins some day and actually like it, but as of right now: no thanks! 😂

    Just saw on reddit you plagiarised this recipe word for word and failed to give credit. Its changed now but way too late. Disappointing.

  • Physzendax

    Wat is dat met al die duisters hier? G E K O L O N I S E E R D And babish, a "Kerst-stol" is made with an almondpaste core, not marsipan (It's not as dry and helps the bread) Also consider some Amarena cherries inside of the core aswel, if you're addings candied fruits already, I mean it's Christmas

  • Josh Brown

    Worth mentioning, as I'm making this right now: 480 grams of flour is NOWHERE NEAR enough flour. You're gonna end up needing closer to double that. If you use only 480 grams of flour, you will get a liquid, not a cohesive dough.

  • Hypebeastasf

    gestollen hahahahha

  • yarp21

    Quick correction from a slightly disgruntled European - I discovered that the metric conversion on the flour measurement on the BwB website is not right. I use metric measurements by weight for baking and my dough with 480g flour was a wet mess - I double checked the Daring Gourmet version and some other conversion charts and apparently it should be 580-600g flour - just warning for other bakers! I added more until it looked and felt like dough and as it appeared in the video. Hoping the dough isn't overworked now as that would be a real bummer after spending two days prepping all the ingredients!

  • kdezzy

    I wanna know why you don't have an online store where we can buy a Babish branded Tiny wisk. I have to settle for amazon. C'mon I'm trying to be a true fan and give you money... :p

    the sugar in this recipe is different from the original! my dough looked liked batter because the amount of sugar was 3 x the amount it should have been!

    Can you make Pfeffernüsse?

  • ymyr1

    I wish someone gave me a stollen each time I lend them an extension cord .... -- Also, I personally would prefer the stollen without marzipan. I think it would taste great without it.

    I never write youtube comments and i'm sure no one will read this, but why would you take a sponsorship from a security company if you support BLM?? private security companies are just private sector cops that make money off carceral solutions to theft and put poor people, disproportionally POC, in jail, protecting people with property. just sayin

      its just a sponsor and the sponsor hasnt done anything wrong on their own. theyre just a security company. christ. this is like saying "if you support the children in africa then why do you pay your water bills?"
