If you really want to get your hands in there and do all the kneading, check out this German Butter Cake. (That's actually the photo of it!) But if you just want to throw all the ingredients into your bread machine, turn it on and do something else, you need to try this recipe.

Oma's German butter cake, aka Butterkuchen, made with an easy yeast dough

Not only is this a basic yeast dough for this cake, but it works for so many others as a base.

Being that this is made with yeast, it tastes best fresh. However, if you want to preserve the freshness, freeze the cake for use on another day.

If at all possible, serve this Butterkuchen warm from the oven with some whipped cream for a real treat.
