Fresh Baked Kahala Christmas Stollen


As a Christmas pastry, Stollen was first baked and served in Germany’s Saxon Royal Court in 1427. Stollen is a loaf-shaped cake-bread traditionally made with dried fruits, nuts, and spices and dusted with sugars or icing. The shape of the cake was originally meant to signify the baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes. The Kahala version includes dark & golden raisins, hand preserved orange and lemon peels, roasted almonds, dark aged rum, German marzipan, and a special blend of Stollen spices including allspice, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, black pepper, and nutmeg. Fresh out of the oven, the Kahala Christmas Stollen is spread with rich melted butter and then sprinkled with Maui vanilla sugar and dusted with confectioner’s sugar.

Need a last minute gift or a special treat for your office or volunteer staff? A guest and community favorite, The Kahala’s fresh-baked Christmas Stollen is offered December 1 - December 31, 2016 for all your gift-giving needs. It’s delicious! Holiday gift wrapped, it’s the perfect treat to take to home and office parties, too.

$22.00 per loaf price does not include tax and gratuity
