This German Butter Cake, aka Butterkuchen or Zuckerkuchen, is often served for afternoon Kaffeeklatsch


Using an easy bread machine method keeps the time in the kitchen to a bare minimum, while at the same time filling the house with such a fragrance!

I've had my Black and Decker All-In-One Breadmaker for years. 

I use it for making breads, of course, but mostly for making dough. It's the easiest way I've found to make yeast doughs for all sorts of baking.

Brötchen and Kuchen. Staples of German baking!

When it's time to replace my current bread machine, I'll be buying another Black and Decker like the one shown here.

Along with the preprogrammed settings, it's larger, meaning I can make more dough (= more Brötchen!) and larger loaves.


If you really want to get your hands in there and do all the kneading, check out this German Butter Cake. (That's actually the photo of it!) But if you just want to throw all the ingredients into your bread machine, turn it on and do something else, you need to try this recipe.

German Butter Cake using Bread Machine ❤️

Ingredients:

    Yeast Dough
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ⅞ cup lukewarm milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp soft butter

Topping

  • 3 Tbsp cold butter
  • ½ cup chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, etc.) (optional)
  • ⅓ cup sugar

Instructions:

  • Put all the Yeast Dough ingredients into the Bread Machine pan.
  • Use the "dough" setting and start (usually takes about 1½ hours).
  • Grease a 10" springform pan if you wish a thicker cake. If you prefer thinner, then you can use a 17"x11" cookie sheet.
  • Once dough cycle is finished, pat dough into pan.
  • For the topping, cut the butter into little knobs, placing them over the surface of the dough, slightly pushing them into the dough.
  • Sprinkle with nuts (if using).
  • Sprinkle with sugar.
  • Cover and let stand in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • Bake cake for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden.
  • Let cool 10 minutes in pan on wire rack.
  • Serve warm if possible!
  • Serves about 8

Not only is this a basic yeast dough for this cake, but it works for so many others as a base.

Being that this is made with yeast, it tastes best fresh. However, if you want to preserve the freshness, freeze it for use on another day.

Oma says,

If at all possible, serve this warm with some whipped cream for a real treat.
