Oma's German desserts with American ingredients. Traditional recipes like Apple Strudel, jelly donuts (Berliner), Kirschenmichel, and newer ones too. Wunderbar!
Are you thinking these German desserts are probably really difficult? You'll soon realize they really aren't difficult at all! For example, take a look at the scrumptious Apple Strudel above. This looks so good and tastes wunderbar as well. Delicious! And yes, it's easy!
These quick dessert recipes are fantastic for "Kaffeklatsch" literally translated meaning "coffee gossip" or nicely translated means "afternoon coffee and dessert."
The Apple Pudding Cake would be great for your afternoon snack! This recipe comes from my dear German friend, Heidi. She serves it deliciously warm from the oven, served with ice cream melting over the top and sprinkled with additional cinnamon.
Smells divine. Tastes heavenly!
Who would guess the easy flaky dessert was made with soda crackers, instant pudding, and Cool Whip?
It is . . . and it's so quick and easy to make. It's fun making it with my granddaughters; it's that easy Is it German? I don't think so, but it is so light and delicious after a traditional schnitzel dinner, it becomes one of those "cross-cultural" desserts!
I experimented with this, again with the crackers, pudding, Cool Whip, and cherry pie filling, but made it REALLY German. I call this outstanding creation my Black Forest Dessert. You'll understand why once you go and see it. I'm sure you'll want to make it as well. So WUNDERBAR!

I love eating German foods, but I really don't like spending too much time in the kitchen. So almost anything I can do to lessen my time there is something I look for.
As well, not all ingredients that are needed for "German baking" is available here where I live in Canada. So, substitutions are necessary. I touch on those as well in these ebooks. Do take a look. I think you'll like!
