    Default Looking for recipe

    My grandmother used to make a holiday cake that I wish to find the
    recipe for. My problem is that I don't know how to spell it or even
    if I'm correctly pronouncing it. It is a German or Hungarian dense
    spicy cake with fine chopped candied fruit and a hard sugar glaze.
    Phonetically it is either "lock-er-lee" of "lock-ra-lee". Any help
    would be greatly appreciated.

    Leckerli, as in Basler Leckerli, maybe? They are Swiss (Basel) spiced
    biscuits/cookies with candied fruit and a glaze. Here is an
    English-language recipe, but I do not know if it is any good, as I do
    not eat cookies if I can help it:

    I tried to search for this cake using the info you posted without any luck.
    It sounds like a fruit cake to me but I can't seem to find anything with
    your description. Do you have any more info on the cake? What type of
    spices it may have had in it?

    This is a recipe I have for a "German Christmas Cake"

    I can not vouch for the recipe.

    Dimitri

    1 lb. raisins
    1 c. hot water
    1 lb. bulk pork sausage
    1 tsp. soda
    2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
    1 lb. pitted dates, cut roughly
    1 lb. English walnut halves
    1 lb. dark brown sugar
    1 c. mixed candied fruits
    1 tsp. ground cloves
    1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. ground allspice
    Pinch of salt

    Combine raisins and hot water, cooking until slightly plumped; set aside.
    Place sausage in a large mixing bowl; sprinkle with soda. Pour water in
    which raisins were cooked in over sausage. Mix with hands or on lowest
    speed of electric mixer. Add remaining ingredients mixing slowly, but well.
    Place mixture into 6 to 7 lightly greased small loaf pans (5x3 inches).
    Bake at 375 degrees for 2 1/2 hours. Yield: 6 to 7 cakes. Note: Add 1/2
    cup bourbon or cognac to mixture if desired. Make cakes 3 weeks ahead of
    serving time for best results. Store in a cool, dark place and brush with
    bourbon or cognac each week.

    That would be Leckerle (or Leckerli), but they are cookies, not cake, and
    they are Swiss:

    <rolls eyes> Why couldn't you help it, Wictor? Does some burly guy strong
    arm you and stuff cookies down your gullet? Put a gun to your head and tell
    you "eat this tin of cookies or yer a gonner?"

    Not some burly guy, but some slip of a silly girl could do it,
    especially if she is pretty (are you??).

    Leckerli (or leckerle) seems to be a winner. My grandmother used to
    make it in pan like brownies but could easily could have been made
    into cookies. I want to thank everybody for there help. You don't know
    how happy you've made me and my siblings for helping to rediscover an
    important part of our Christmas childhood.
