This recipe will make you a rock star! I have made it for the last 2 years as Christmas gifts, and my German friends all comment on how it reminds them of the holidays from when they were little. It's not overly sweet, which I like. The recipe is easy to follow, and it makes your house smell FABULOUS! It is very authentic-tasting. You simply MUST make this cake.
