Preparation steps


Mix the ingredients for the fruit mixture well. Cover with foil and store in warm place overnight.


Dissolve the yeast in sugar and milk. Add 200 grams (approximately 4/5 cup) of flour and knead using an electric hand mixer until smooth. Sprinkle the dough with flour, cover and set aside in a warm place to rise until the surface cracks.

Mix the dough with the remaining flour, the chopped marzipan, eggs, softened butter, salt and spices. Knead into a smooth dough. Add the soaked fruits and knead. Sprinkle the dough with flour and let sit for 1 hour.


Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). Grease the pan with butter.


Roll the dough to double the desired width and length. Shape the dough into a tunnel. Place the dough on the prepared tray and bake for about 60 minutes. After about 10 minutes, brush the cake with 50 grams (approximately 1/5 cup) of melted butter and sprinkle with a little sugar. Brush the finished cake with the remaining melted butter and sprinkle with more sugar. Let cool. Sprinkle with half of the powdered sugar. Wrap in foil and let sit overnight. 

The next day, remove the excess sugar and brush with a thin coat of melted butter. Sprinkle with the remaining powdered sugar and wrap in aluminum foil.
