This is a great German Christmas recipe. Very different to the usual gingerbread- spicy and orangey!
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. - 13 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

This is wonderful, I will add more ginger next time but really is great as is. I'll definitely make it again!!! - 24 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
