“Someone’s stollen my German Christmas cake”

"Stollen” is a German fruit bread, often served at Christmas. There are many puns with stollen and “stolen.”

“Thought of a new recipe for a cake with marzipan and sultanas. I think some German has stollen my idea though” was cited on Twitter on November 27, 2009. “Somebody’s stollen my German marzipan Christmas treat” was cited on Twitter on July 15, 2012.

“A christmas classic from father: ‘someone’s stollen my stollen’” was cited on Twitter on December 19, 2015.


Wikipedia: Stollen
Stollen (German pronunciation: [ˈʃtɔln̩]) is a fruit bread containing dried fruit and often covered with powdered sugar or icing sugar. The bread is usually made with chopped candied fruit and/or dried fruit, nuts and spices. Stollen is a traditional German bread usually eaten during the Christmas season, when it is called Weihnachtsstollen (after “Weihnachten") or Christstollen (after Christ) as well as Winterbrot (winter bread) when eaten during Jewish festivities, as it foreshadows the coming of winter.
