Cakes and Pastries

Germans are industrious and talented bakers. From them we get cheesecake, stollen, marzipan, cream cakes like Black Forest cake and so much more. They love to bake seasonally and at Christmastime they go all out. Try the cinnamon stars (Zimtsterne) or the Black-and-white cookies at your next cookie exchange; simple yet delicious.

Simple German Cake Recipes
Cakes hold a very important place in German cuisine. Cookies are for Christmas time, when the cook is too busy to bake, but cakes are served on a weekend afternoon, with coffee and tea. Often, guests are asked over and the cake is enjoyed after a walk in the park.
