Are you living outside of Germany, too? Are you missing that daily trip to the bakery to get your fresh Brötchen or Streuselkuchen?
You can re-create those fabulous baked goods, no matter where you live in the world.
When my Mutti and Papa immigrated to Canada in the 1950s with their young family, they worked hard to start a new life. It meant Mutti needed to experiment in the kitchen using ingredients that were foreign to her to try and capture the flavors that reminded her of the old country.
Her creativity and inventiveness won out. With a delectable Buttercreme torte or a simple Obsttorte for afternoon break, the food was so reminiscent of her traditional upbringing in Germany.
Using local ingredients can be a bit of a challenge, but German baking is actually not that difficult to replicate, especially when you have an Oma at your side.
Let me be your Oma. I’ll teach you, just like Mutti taught me.
The recipes that form the core for most of the cooking and baking I do are quick, easy, and delicious. They are the ones I’ve always relied on, especially at times when my life was very busy: when our boys were young, when I was homeschooling, and when I was running a private school.
During those times, having something quick and delicious on the table, such as Apfelstrudel and no-knead Sauerteig Vollkornbrot, was really important to me.
Other recipes are more recent, such as Krustenbrot and Friesentorte; they are also quick, easy, and delicious and have likewise become staples.
This cookbook, Baking Just Like Oma, is a collection of these tried-and-true baking recipes. You’ll find many of the recipes include a section called Oma’s Ecke (Grandma’s Corner) with extra info for each of those recipes.
You’ll also find some unusual coloring pages scattered throughout the book that contain special baking tips and hints to help you as we travel through this German baking adventure together.
And to make it easier for everyone, I’ve adjusted these recipes to also include standard US measurements instead of weighing the ingredients, which is the norm in Germany. Yes, weighing is more accurate, especially in baking; however, I think you’ll find the recipes included here work just as well when made with cups and measuring spoons.
So, what do you say? Let’s get baking and create these mouth-watering treats as delectable treasures to pass on to your family, just like my Mutti did for hers.
Each of these wunderbar recipes has a black/white photo and is filled with tips and tricks, right from my kitchen.
Here’s your chance to get Baking Just Like Oma for yourself and for everyone on your gift-giving list! Pass on your German culture to your children and grandchildren. Share your love for German baking with your friends and neighbors.

I've re-created those traditional German baked treats that you recall your Oma making by using easily available ingredients.
Quick and easy. That's my motto. Wunderbar food. That's the result.
Many German recipes use ingredients only available in Germany. Since I don't live in Germany, having access to these isn’t always easy. So, I experimented with my Mutti’s recipes (many came from her hand-written notes) and made them with ingredients easily purchased at my local Canadian grocery store.
