The Apple Pudding Cake would be great for your afternoon snack! This recipe comes from my dear German friend, Heidi.

She serves it deliciously warm from the oven, served with ice cream melting over the top and sprinkled with additional cinnamon. 

Smells divine. Tastes heavenly!

Who would guess the easy flaky dessert was made with soda crackers, instant pudding, and Cool Whip?

It is . . . and it's so quick and easy to make. It's fun making it with my granddaughters; it's that easy Is it German? I don't think so, but it is so light and delicious after a traditional schnitzel dinner, it becomes one of those "cross-cultural" desserts!

black forest dessert

I experimented with this, again with the crackers, pudding, Cool Whip, and cherry pie filling, but made it REALLY German.

I call this outstanding creation my Black Forest Dessert. You'll understand why once you go and see it. I'm sure you'll want to make it as well. So WUNDERBAR!

What others are saying . . .

Anne says, "Just made this last week for my Birthday. I usually add walnut pieces or almond slivers. Can't believe it looks exactly the same as my Mama taught me some 40 years ago, the only thing what we did different, we use a fork to make the ridges in the apples. But they do open up better the way you do it with the knife. And you are right, this recipe never fails :)"

Gabriele H. says, "What a wonderful place to find German recipes without having to call family in Germany. I'm loving it."

Catherine R. says, "Tomorrow is a good day to try this!"

Here's what some of my fans say:

Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!   


Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.


Lori S: This is the best split pea soup I ever made! It disappeared faster than any other soup I have made. It is so easy to prepare the night before an throw together before I leave for work, I will definitely use it often!


Sunetra CDas sieht aber lecker aus.
