Mellow Yellow Stollen Muffins

A twist on your usual Christmas Stollen 'loaf, here's a muffin variation. These individual treats are great for when friends and family pop round during the festive period, with pockets of marzipan, cherries and raisins to delight them.


  1. 1

    Preheat your oven to 190C / 170C fan. Mix together your flour, ground almonds and baking powder and put to one side.

  2. 2

    In a separate mixing bowl, cream together your Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil, milk and sugar with an electric whisk until it reaches a thick, almost caramel-like consistency.

  3. 3

    Beat your eggs in a jug with your vanilla extract, then pour this into the mixture a little at a time, whilst still whisking.

  4. 4

    Fold in your flour mixture, followed by the marzipan, raisins, cherries, almonds and lemon zest.

  5. 5

    Pour into 12 muffin cases and decorate each with a sprinkling of flaked almonds and half a cherry.
