Kerststol slices with almond paste in the middle

Kerststol is a traditional Dutch oval-shaped fruited Christmas bread.[1][2] It is a yeast-based bread, with dried fruits, raisins and currants, lemon and orange zest, water, milk, butter, sugar, vanilla, brandy and cinnamon. A more luxurious variety may include chopped walnuts, almonds, or hazelnuts.[3] Ginger powder or grated crystallized ginger, dried cherries and cranberries, apple, kiwi or cardamom may also be added to this pastry dough.

The dough, after resting, is filled with an almond paste (amandelspijs) log[4] which is placed in the middle of the cake. The dough is folded over the almond paste lengthways and gently pinched to seal it. When ready, the cake is dusted with icing sugar before it is served in thick slices, spread with butter.

Paasstol[]

There is a cake of this type also for Easter. Then it is called paasstol or paasbrood.
