German Recipes in English
from Mutti's Cookbook

These German recipes in English are from my Mutti's hand-written cookbook ("Muttis Kochbuch"). Many favourites such as Königsberger Klopse mit Hollandische Sosse are included. And tortes. And cookies. And . . .

I as so blessed to have my Mutti's cookbook now that she is no longer alive.

Filled with recipes and hints, she faithfully wrote what she made and how to make it.

Most are in German, although some she translated into English herself.

From the kid-friendly dinner recipes I grew up with such as her quick, easy meatloaf to recipes for German holiday traditions that we kept, and her best cake recipes, her notes are a treasure trove for me.

It's my pleasure to be able to share them with you!

Please note that these recipes are mostly traditional ones - not necessarily quick. Sometimes Mutti would make alterations or added hints to make things quicker and/or easier. But, they all tasted great!

I'm not sure where she got the recipes from - many I'm sure came to her from her Mutti and her Oma. If you find one here and know it's original source, please let me know so I can give proper credit.

In the meantime, I'll just be thankful to Mutti for taking the time to record these authentic German recipes and for teaching them to me.

These German recipes in English are categorized below. They are also available under the appropriate Recipes Tab above. Keep checking back here often, as it will take me a while to translate all her recipes and also convert the quantities from metric to imperial.

I hope you enjoy these delicious German recipes in English as much as I do. Just translating them and writing them out, brings back special memories of Mutti.

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!"
