Some of my Favorite German Cake Recipes ...
The German Blitz Torte is a delicious example of one of the best cake recipes that you can whip together quickly using ingredients you probably already have on hand. Special for holidays and easy enough for a family dinner. YUMMY!
The Hazelnut Torte is also so simple to make. I just rolled out purchased marzipan to cover the cake and decorated with whipped cream and almonds. It even surprised me how simple it was and how beautiful it looked. My Mutti used to make this Hazelnut Torte all the time. It was her specialty.
Often she just served it plain, without the marzipan, and just dusted it with icing sugar. It still tasted good, but, in my opinion, the marzipan was the crowning touch!
German Cake Recipes really are the BEST!
Oma's Easiest Cake
I LOVE my easy Black Forest Cherry Cake. You can make it look "real" with just a bit extra time, some freshly whipped cream, and a pastry bag.
In fact, my 7-year old granddaughter, Lydia, helped make it as a birthday cake for her older sister, Alana.
It may not taste exactly like the one made from scratch, but it's a 'cake hack' that is so quick and easy to make. :)
I LOVE quick and easy, but sometimes, more traditional cakes are just what is craved. Check out the following. It's a mix of quick, easy, traditional, authentic, German, yummy, lecker schmecker and wunderbar!

My Bienenstich recipe is a quick version of the traditional "German Bee Sting Cake". Sweet, chewy, nutty top with a creamy filling. Yummy!

This German Sauerbraten recipe comes from my Mutti's own cookbook. Tender and flavorful, this traditional beef dinner is for sure a favourite.
