Here's your place to search free German recipes. With the growing number of recipes on this site, I have added this convenient Quick German Recipes Search so you can quickly and easily find what you are looking for.
If you don't know the correct German spelling, fill in the form below with a phonetic spelling (how it sounds) to help me search for it. Most of the recipes on this site include both English and German titles. Try either language in the search box.
You can even enter in the main ingredients, such as egg whites or spinach, and find a German recipe that uses them.
Couldn't find what you're looking for? Then ask below!
Perhaps it's something from your Oma's handwritten cookbook that you'd like translated and altered into today's measurements. Just let me know and I'll see what I can do. Sometimes it's just a quick translation. Sometimes it'll take a while, but it's worth a try.
I usually respond within 24-36 hours. Sometimes when I'm travelling, I don't have internet access, so please be patient. I really do check for mail the moment I'm connected again.
As well as sending me the request, why not add it below in the Comments section. You'd be surprised how many requests get answered in that way. It may be useful, as well, to go to the page that the recipe should be on, such as CAKES if it's a cake and put the request under the Comments there.
Perhaps it's a recipe you remember from your German Oma? Perhaps it's something you tried in a German restaurant?
Don't know how to spell it? That doesn't matter. Just give a phonetic spelling (how it sounds) and we'll try to find the recipe. Give us some idea what the recipe is like, what possible ingredients it has, what it looks like (perhaps you have an old photograph), where you had it -- anything to help us find what you're looking for.
The more you write about it, the easier it will be for me or someone else to identify it.
We've great resources, including thousands of readers, who will help you find that long-lost recipe so you can recreate those memories.
