Chocolate Stollen

A Stollen is a traditional German cake - a loaf-shaped cake containing dried fruit and covered with sugar, powdered sugar or icing sugar.This is low in sweetness. Happen to taste this Yumm Chocolate Stollen two days back,its buttery and flaky choco layers made me try this sweet at home.Tried it with a ready-made puff pastry.U can try it with flour and few other ingredients needed.U can try this filling with any other Sweet or savory filling.

Chocolate Stollen - Flaky spiral Puff filled with sugared cocoapowder or chocolate flakes
Ingredients:

100 gms refined Flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
50 ml milk

Warm water 2 -3 tbsp (30 secs microwaved) - if needed
100 gms sugar + cocoa powder mix(20 gms Cocoa powder + 70 gms powdered sugar) or Sweet chocolate flakes

Directions

1.Sift the flour and knead it adding yeast,salt,refined oil,beaten egg,then add sugar,and mix for a min add milk
and 3/4 th of the butter and mix into a fine dough.Knead it for 5 mins and wrap it to rise a bit - leave it untouched for abt 2 hours.(U can do at the same time too).
2.Spread the rised dough into 6 into 2  inch size rectangular shapes with 1/2 cm thickness - sprinkling refined flour to make it easy.U will get atleast 5 nos.
