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 . . .

Alana and her rouladenOma taught Mutti, Mutti taught me, and I taught my granddaughter, Alana, how to make these traditional German Rouladen. Wunderbar!

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!

Mutti's German Recipes in English:

Cakes (Kuchen und Torten)

Cookies (Kekse)

Dumplings (Klösse)

Fish (Fisch)

Meat (Fleisch)

Potatoes (Kartoffeln)

Salad (Salat)

Soup (Suppe)

Vegetables (Gemüse)

  • Rosenkohl - Brussels sprouts that even kids love
  • Weißkohl - traditional cabbage side-dish
  • Grünkohl - kale, either with or without potatoes
  • Rotkohl - sweet and sour red cabbage

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.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety

Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"

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.
