This traditional German-style holiday cake is dense, buttery and richly fragrant with the flavors of almond and citrus. It's loaded with brandy-soaked currants, homemade candied orange and lemon peels, and has a rope of almond paste down the center. After baking, the loaf is brushed with butter, rolled in granulated sugar, and coated with a blanket of powdered sugar. Slice thin and serve with tea for delicious treat!
