Hi Kaylinda

well I think every country has it's own way to make apple cake, and for sure there are a lot of ways to make apple cake in Germany. Every region has it's own tradition. But Applecake is one of the Germans favorite cakes.

If you like I can post recipes for apple cake they are handed down from my mom and my grandma and they are definately authentic German recipes

I'm able to buy imported Sauerkraut from Germany at my local Publix Store in Orlando. It's in a glass jar and the brand is Gundelsheimer. It's authentic German Kraut.

2/3 cup flour, unbleached,unsifted
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs , beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 cups apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Sift together the flour, sugar, and the salt.
2. Beat eggs and milk together.
3. Gradually add flour mixture; beat until smooth.
4. Saute apples in 1/4 c of butter until tender.
5. Mix sugar and the cinnamon together.
6. Toss with apples.
7. Melt 2 T butter in a deep frypan.
8. Pour in the batter to a depth of about 1/4-inch.
9. When set, place 1/4 of the apples on top; cover with more batter.
10. Fry pancake until lightly browned on both sides.

Ciao Iris, I have noticed you have excellent knowledge in German Cuisine. One of my favourite German food is "Stollen", wonderfully sinful christmas cake, but I haven't found a valid recipe for it... I know it is a little early for the season but if you have one can you introduce it to us? Mmm, mmm, mmm, I am sure it will make many members here happy!!
Licia

Hi Licia,

oh yes I do have Stollen recipes I'd love to poste them, they are family recipes. Stollen is also one of my favorite christmas cakes.
I'll translate and post them on the weekend.
