German Baking Recipes

Traditional German baking recipes

I like to share traditional German baking recipes. I show in the instructions how to create simple baking goods as well as seasonal cakes, pastries and typical desserts for the holidays like the famous German Christmas Cookies. The different kinds of dough and batter create this selection of recipes. They are made from scratch which makes the cakes and desserts a specialty.

The preparation of the German baking recipes  is easy following the step-by-step instructions supported by pictures.

All it takes to start the German baking recipes is a handheld mixer, bowl, measuring cup, measuring spoons, rolling pin, spatula, cake brush, and a baking pan. Of course also the ingredients. You are all set up to make a simple German crumb cake or the famous Black Forest cake and more.

Whichever German baking recipe you choose, your friends and family will appreciate your efforts and be thankful.
