Hi Folks,

there are still a few days until christmas... So I'd like to share my favorite christmas cake with you. The cake is called "Heidesandkuchen". I couldn't find a translation but I think that doesn't bother anyway.
Sorry, the cake doesn't become as beautiful as the pictures you are always see at the internet but it tastes nevertheless yummy - This is real life! 
Maybe you can bake it the whole year but I like it most around Christmas, because I think with the filling it's christmassy .

Here's the receipe if you like to bake it yourself:

250 g butter
250 g plum jam
2 tbs rolled oats
1 ts grated lemon zest
250 g flour
50 g cornstarch
3 ts baking powder
1/2 ts cinnamon (optional)
150 g sugar
1 pak vanilla sugar
1 pinch salt
4 eggs
Cake icing

Tanning the butter and set aside until cool and creamy.
Mix Jam, oatmeal and lemon zest and set aside.

Create a sponge from all the other ingredients. Stir in the cooled butter.

Divide dough into 3 parts. Fill alternating with the jam mixture into the form.

Bake at 160°C for 50-60 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes then overthrow the cake.

When the cake has cooled, cover the cake with the glaze.
