Until recently, no Christmas in Austria and Germany was complete without stollen. According to the classic recipe, it is a yeast pastry with marzipan. However, people's tastes change over time, as do recipes. Thus, people replaced marzipan with dried fruit and started using yeast-free dough.

Ukrainians liked stollen and made their own adjustments to the classic recipe. For example, a food blogger with the nickname dovgan_lily_ offers a rather interesting interpretation of stollen with the addition of cottage cheese on her Instagram.
