From: R.GAGNAUX@link-ch1.aworld.de (Rene Gagnaux) Date: Sat, 26 Feb 94 00:00:00 CET This speciality is the "gourmand cake" of the St. Nicholas Festival celebrated annually on 6th December. Presided over by the Bishop of Myra, the feast day assumes an air of solemnity in Lucerne itself, culminating in a procession through the town. "St. Nicholas" is preceded by two heralds and is escorted by frightening "Schmutzli" (large puppets) who, according to tradition, are thought to punish children who have misbehaved during the year. Only well behaved children receive presents from St. Nicholas on this special day. Whip the cream and mix with molasses (1st amount), spices and salt. Add the baking powder, flour, warm milk and diced peel, mixing throughly until smooth. Pour the mixture into a greased and lined sponge ring and bake for 45-50 minutes at 180 oC. When baked, brush the top with the pear molasses (2nd amount) to glaze. Recommended drink: tea or coffee.
