Moravian Sugar Cake

full star full star full star empty star empty star

Two hundred sixty-six years ago this Christmas Eve, the city where I reside was named by Count Nicolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf, a Moravian leader, in the first house erected in this area. I can almost imagine the Count, said to have been watching the stable animals and listening to hymns being sung, suddenly standing tall and proclaiming the community, "Bethlehem," named after the birthplace of Jesus Christ.

It may have been less dramatic than that, but with our city having officially been dubbed "Christmas City, USA" in 1937, it's hard not to think of a more exciting beginning.This is a Christmas cake recipe well-loved by Moravians everywhere and devoured in record time by my own kids.
