“I got this recipe from my girlfriend Marichen, many years ago, had to convert from metric to cups and tsp and Tbls. She came from Germany and brought this recipe with her. Its on the order of a pound cake but a little more moist and the texture is a little courser. One of my favorites. Hope everyone who tries it enjoys.”
