A rich bread packed with lots of dried fruits, stollen is a classic German dish served mainly during Christmas period. Soaking the dried fruits in 100 ml of rum or brandy would make this fruit bread moist and aromatic.
To make this cake divine, use bananas that are very ripe – the ones that have brown flecks on the peel. Bananas contain tryptophan, an amino acid that helps your body produce serotonin, a natural substance that has a calming effect on the brain and can act as a gentle sedative. I used dark jaggery and used a fine grater to grate it. Go on try baking this cake.
I love using fresh fruits in my baking. I choose the fruits for the gorgeous colours first and then I will consider their fruity flavours. Therefore fruits like raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, pink dragon fruit are my all time favourites to incorporate in my baking sessions.
