Cook's Notes:

Advocaat egg liqueur is a brandy-based liqueur with an eggnog-like consistency, made with egg and sugar. It is available at many liquor stores or can be ordered online.

This recipe was originally in metric measures - the metric measures are 250 ml sunflower oil, 250 g sugar, 250 ml advocaat egg liqueur, and 250 g flour.

For a traditional German cake, use a Kugelhopf Bundt(R) cake pan for this recipe.
