In one of the vintage recipe binders I own, I found a lovely piece of parchment paper with a recipe written on it. The name of the recipe was not written in English (and I doubt there is an English translation for it because I never came across one...)

Traditional Stollen

Adriana baked this classic German sweet bread for the holidays and had this to say: 

"With rounds of marzipan in each slice and a chewy texture, this stollen will be appearing at our house all year long... Kissed by the fruity lips of orange peels and scented throughout with rum, this is my absolute favorite bread."

I'll bet! It sounds simply divine!
