If you just can't get enough of Germany's tempting Stollen fruit breads during the holiday season then this recipe is for you! Use any Stollen, but the Edel-Marzipan filled one is particularly delicious. You should be able to find genuine German Stollen in your local market - look for stollen by Bahlsen, Dahli, Dr. Quendt, Elzer, Kuchenmeister, Lieken, Oebel, Otto Schmidt, Reimann, Schlunder, and Schwermer, to name just a few.
By themselves, these rich, flavorful soufflés are virtually fat-free. The German chocolate sauce is rich but not too sweet, as most German-produced chocolate contains a higher content of cocoa and less sugar than most American chocolate.
Make this quick and easy dessert using Germany's famed "Lebkuchen" gingerbread.
Baked apples stuffed with chocolate and crumbled lebkuchen (gingerbread), garnished with whipped cream and crystallized ginger.
Another wonderful version of baked apples stuffed with marzipan and spiced cranberries.
Individual cheesecakes with a gingerbread cookie base and an apricot compote top.
