Fruit and nuts are traditional ingredients used in this moist, dense German Christmas yeast bread made with prune juice, chopped prunes, raisins, walnuts, and brown sugar. Age the loaves 3 days before slicing them, and serve with butter.

Hazelnuts and semisweet chocolate get an added punch of flavor from coffee in these wonderful truffles. Add rum too, if you like!

This loaf cake is known in Germany as 'Zitronenkuchen', a dense pound cake with a lemon glaze all over the top and soaked into the cake itself.

This cake is a rich, dark, moist fruit cake, very flavorful at Christmas. Try icing with almond paste for a more festive touch. This recipe is started in October or November so as to let it mellow before the holidays. I remember very well my mother storing her fruit cake in an old butter churn that belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother. I wish that I had that old crock.

Christmas Fruitcake

It's a shame that fruitcake as a species gets such a bad rap. With its two key ingredients - rum and butter - it ought to be a hit. This recipe includes dried fruit, instead of the glowing, candied stuff we've all learned to associate with fruitcake, and is less dense and more cake-like than many fruitcake recipes. It has become a favorite of my friends and family around the holidays (even the skeptical ones), and is delicious by itself, or covered with a layer of almond paste. Fruitcake is also traditional for wedding cake in England, and makes a very rich, sophisticated dessert for luncheons or teas.

This is a lovely white cake studded with glace cherries and golden raisins-a nice alternative to fruitcake. This loaf freezes well, too.
