Total time: 1 hour



For the spelt stollen with dried fruit, cut the dried fruit into small cubes. Wash the raisins in hot water, drain and mix with the rum and dried fruit. Mix the flour with 1/4 tsp salt and baking powder. Add the curd, eggs, sugar and 140 g butter and knead until smooth. Fold in the dried fruit and almonds. Cover the dough and let it rest at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan oven 180°C). Roll out the dough into a rectangle on a floured work surface. Roll up the rectangle from one side, roll it out again and fold it back together. Press a notch in the center. Place the stollen on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 70 minutes. Halfway through the baking time, brush with a little butter. After the baking time, brush the spelt stollen with dried fruit with the remaining butter and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
