1/2 tsp vanilla extract
50 g melted butter
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1/2 tsp ground ginger

125 g sultanas
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C Fan / 200C / Gas 6.

  6. Roll out into a long sausage shape about 20 cm long. Put on one half of the dough. Roll up and seal the edge. Blend to make a crescent shape.
  7. Place on a baking tray lined with non-stick paper. Glaze with egg. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden and well risen and brown underneath.
  8. Leave to cool, then mix the icing sugar with a little water to make a paste. Dredge the stollens with icing sugar.
