Bahlsen Stollen Bratapfel [Baked Apple] Filling (Selfridges)

I have written about Stollen before, the traditional seasonal German cake. When found in the UK Stolen usually has a marzipan (sometimes described as almond paste) filling, but this one is a little different. This Stollen has a fruity filling with the flavours of baked apple, i.e. apple, cinnamon, orange and lemon.

The cake itself is moist and the apple and citrus flavours blend well with the fruit cake. The jam centre is very tasty and the idea of the ‘baked apple’ flavours make for a nice seasonal winter warming feel. It’s very different to regular Stollen, but very enjoyable.
