Old-fashioned German cakesWonderful easy versions of traditional cakes such as the famous Black Forest Cake. That's what you'll find here.

Some of the cakes are just like Oma used to make. Others have been changed to make them easier and quicker versions of traditional German cakes for you to impress family and friends.

Take a moment and look at the dozens of cakes shown here. Then decide which order you plan to try them! Wunderbar! Kaffeeklatsch with fresh baked treats!

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!

Make this German Blitz Torte when you need something special and don't have much time.

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 the Hazelnut cake 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!

What makes these cakes so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own German Cake e-Cookbook in English to share, not only with my grandchildren, but with you as well.

Sharing traditional German cakes, made using easily available ingredients, ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our heritage.

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. :)

Above is the traditional German Black Forest Cake ... yes, I've added nuts to the outside ... because ... well .... I love nuts! And ... I think it looks so pretty this way.

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!
