((*Note: The German original used the '#' for pound. Some of the recipes
from this source were in German, some in a mixture of German and English.
Since this particular recipe was all in German, I assume it refers to
German pounds. A german pound - 500 grams - is slightly larger than the
American pound - 454 grams. K.B.))
