German fruit bread is a German holiday specialty and is very easy to make at home. It tastes so good with butter, jam or honey and is an ideal and healthy snack. The only unusual ingredient is "citronat" which is candied lemon peel, an important ingredient in German Holiday Baking.
If you keep it in a tin box it will be good for weeks. So bake it 2 weeks before Christmas and enjoy it Christmas morning. Happy Baking!
