    My daughter needs to make a dessert for German club. I read off a number of German recipes here on 'zaar, and she loves the idea of apfelkuchen. Plus, apples are in season...

    My question is, can someone recommend one of the recipes (here or elsewhere) that is most authentic? Her teacher is a native German, and I wouldn't want to send something and call it apfelkuchen, and it not be exactly the right thing...

    Germany's a big place. What might qualify as the perfect, traditional apfelkuchen in one area might not be so much in others.

    Apple Cake (Apfelkuchen) (click on the link) is very highly rated and you should be happy with it. If you give it a try, recipe reviews are very much appreciated.

    In Germany Recipes for Apfel Kuchen Or Apfel Torte vary quite a bit from region to region. I don't think that your daughters teacher could find a problem with the one suggested. If you would like I can type in a recipe from one of my German Cookbooks (translated of course). wave.gif

    I will go ahead and use the first recipe recommended. It was one of the ones I was looking at but the note that it didn't use a pastry crust as is (apparently) common gave me pause. I went ahead and asked here to make sure I wasn't using a recipe that is too americanized.

    Thank you, Koechin, for the offer of a translated German recipe. I don't want to cause you any trouble. If the other recipe is appropriate, I will use it.

    My daughter has already managed to impress her teacher by signing up for Apfelkuchen - knowing what it is and spelling it correctly. I get the impression Frau König is looking forward to it. (my daughter typed the name with the correct accent for me)

    Thank you all for your help. I may turn up here again for advice during the next four years icon_wink.gif
