German Recipes in English from
Mutti's Handwritten German Cookbook ❤️

These German recipes in English are from my Mutti's hand-written cookbook, Muttis Kochbuch. I as so blessed to have her very own cookbook now that she is no longer alive. Filled with recipes and hints, she faithfully wrote what she made and how to make it. Most are in German, although some she translated into English herself.

Hallo Summer Collection at Just like Oma's Store

It's my pleasure to be able to share them with you!

Please note that these recipes are mostly traditional ones - not necessarily quick. Sometimes Mutti would make alterations or added hints to make things quicker and/or easier. 


Mutti's German Recipes in English:

Cakes (Kuchen und Torten)

Cookies (Kekse)

Dumplings (Klösse)

Fish (Fisch)

Meat (Fleisch)

Potatoes (Kartoffeln)

Salad (Salat)

Soup (Suppe)

Vegetables (Gemüse)


I'm not sure where she got the recipes from - many I'm sure came to her from her Mutti and her Oma. If you find one here and know it's original source, please let me know so I can give proper credit.

In the meantime, I'll just be thankful to Mutti for taking the time to record these authentic German recipes and for teaching them to me.

These German recipes in English are categorized above. They are also available under the appropriate Recipes Tab above. Keep checking back here often, as it will take me a while to translate all her recipes and also convert the quantities from metric to imperial.

I hope you enjoy these delicious German recipes in English as much as I do. Just translating them and writing them out, brings back special memories of Mutti.

Meet with us around Oma's table, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and a piece of Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the visit.
