For the dough take flour in a big bowl and make a pit in the middle
Pour warm milk in the middle, add yeast, a pinch of sugar, cover with damp cloth and rest for 10 minutes.
After 10 minures add powder sugar, salt, egg, vanilla extract and lemon zest. Make a dough, its not a matter even if all flour is not used. Allow to raise for 45 minutes.
After 45 minutes add butter and make a soft dough. Rest for 30 minutes.

In a tray place a baking sheet and roll in to 1 inch thick disk. Fold one side to the center to get the traditional stollen shape.
Cover with cling film and rest for 30 minutes. In this mean time heat oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
After 30 minutes bake at lower tray for 35 to 45 minutes.
When completely cooled down, melt 2 tbsp butter. Brush over the stollen and sprinkle icing sugar.
Again repeat brushing butter and icing sugar coating several times to get traditional stollen. I just made a single layer.
Soft and mouth watering stollen is ready to serve.
Note:To get traditional taste add rum in place of orange juice and coat about 1/2 cm sugar.
Also store for a week by covering with a cling film. After 1 week you get the traditional taste.
