This is the original recipe that my great grandmother Maria Zekoll brought over from Austria. I have 2 variations of this recipe. The holiday stollen is with the candied fruit and this is the everyday stollen, which is a much easier version. They all had large families back then so they needed to feed an army basically. You can cut the recipe to make less if you like or freeze any extra.
