Kruchen or Kuchen Bread

by Terri Jenisch
(Parker CO)

Please help us find an old German Bread recipe. We are trying to find a bread or cake recipe from the early 1900's. My great grandmother made something called Kuchen or Krughen. It was a bread that had black walnuts, kind of dark like a banana nut breakd, hint of licorice and maybe some dates, raisins or such. She came over from Moravia and they had settled near Great Bend Kansas.

"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!"
