Stollen is a fruit loaf, native to Germany and unwaveringly festive. You'll see it at Christmas markets, dusted in powdered sugar filled with sweet fruits. We reworked this quintessential treat into our Christmas Stollen Friands recipe, making them single serving and infinitely more portable. They're gluten free, sweetened by some raw cane sugar and naturally sweet cherries, orange and almonds. If you're looking for the cutest little breakfast in the Yuletide run-up, look no further!
