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.
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.
