Knecht Ruprecht is a companion of Saint Nicholas in German folklore. Tradition says that he comes to the houses on St. Nicholas day and asks the children, do they know how to pray. If they do, they receive apples, nuts, gingerbread. Cake Knecht Ruprecht from German cuisine, but I learned from the wonderful Soviet woman))) For me it is a biscuit (sorry Germans)
