    These little sweet bread rolls with raisins are very typical for the Lower Rhine Region. If you want to serve them the traditional way, slice them, spread them thickly with unsalted butter, then with Apfelkraut (apple butter) and top it with a slice of pumpernickel. But you can serve them with anything, they are heavenly. One of my favorite sweet treats for breakfast or the afternoon tea.

    Recipe #143444

    Stollen (pronounced shtoh-luhn) is a traditional Christmas bread from Germany. The bread varies slightly from one area of Germany to another, so that one hears of Dresden, Bavarian, or other regional stollens. The bread is often stuffed with fruits, marzipan and sometimes nuts. The traditional shape is that of a large, folded oval that resembles a large Parker House roll. Make it a month or six weeks ahead and then freeze it. On Christmas morning, unwrap it, and reheat it in a warm (300 F) oven, and enjoy it with coffee and hot chocolate. This recipe makes two loaves and I usually give one as a gift with reheating instructions written on a Christmas card.

    This is a favourite German almondy christmas loaf. It takes a long time to make, but is very easy.

    Recipe #106984

    This recipe has been handed down from my great grandmother in Germany. We've had these every Christmas since I can remember and I now make them every year with my kids. They are so delicious.

    Recipe #104197

    The Lutherans call these Fastnachts and are supposed to eat them on Shrove Tuesday; the Mennonites call them Raised Doughnuts and will eat them any time. They're wonderful, warm or cold, with maple syrup, or sprinkled with sugar.

    This is a traditional German recipe, usually made on Shrove Tuesday to use up the lard before Lent begins. Don't worry, you can fry them in vegetable oil instead of lard! Either way, they're delicious!

    Recipe #62701

    This comes from the St. David's School Cookbook (1974) and I have been making it now for thirty years. It's wonderful for parties; it's very elegant and rich, and really extraordinarily delicious. The pastry--which is really like shortbread--is good enough to eat by itself; the combination makes for a great dessert. It is rich enough that it doesn't need whipped cream (though I wouldn't stop anyone from adding some).

    Recipe #108596

    I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar. I am German and usually like that kind of German Apple Cake, so I thought I'd give this recipe a home. I have not yet made it to see if it needs updating, but will try some time soon. If you make this before me please let me know what you think!

    Easy, simple and fast. Scalloped potatoes go very well with these chops.

    This is a typical noodle dish of Baden-Baden and the Schwaebische region in Germany. The main ingredient is potatoes. Schupfnudeln get their name from the Upper German word "Schupfen", meaning "to shove, push, throw or chuck". They are traditionally hand-made by rolling out potato dough on a board and cutting the dough into noodles. Schupfnudeln, which are a kind of Spaeztle (home-made pasta), are simple and easy to make. They are delicious and they go well with almost anything: roast pork, racks of lamb, bits of bacon, sauerkraut, and any cabbage dishes. I'm posting this recipe in response to a request in German Cooking Forum.

    Recipe #111362

    This sweet-tart side dish is perfect accompaniment to any pork dish, or is good on it's own as a snack.

    Recipe #108659

    Have your Octoberfest in Septemberfest, or Wheneverfest. Who needs an excuse to eat these?

    Rumtopf is a traditional German delicious fruit preserve.It works with any combination of ripe fruit. Both my grandmother and mother used the 2nd method described, with A Rumtopf crock, traditionaly every summer and we always enjoyed it at Christmas. I still have their crock, but have only made it once. (maybe next summer) Prep time is for refrigerating.

    Recipe #12931

    Another German deli staple. Posted by request.

    Recipe #107991

    The family really enjoys this at our Holiday dinners. Looks more labor intense then it is. Keep in mind that the prep time of 4 days + or - is in the meat marinating. I put the meat into a large zip-lock bag to marinate, also for easy clean up.

    Recipe #15110

    2 elderly ladies used to make this "Kartoffelsalat", for the fish fries at our German Hall, when I was a little girl. My Mother spied on them to get the recipe, and I later watched her make it. It is very forgiving and versatile; even those who don't like potato salad, like this one.

    Recipe #30518

    This is my moms recipe for the mayo based version that you will find all over northern Germany, while southern Germany prefers the vinegar based/hot version. Make sure to let the salad rest for at least 2 hours so that all the flavors can blend and soak into the potatoes.

    Recipe #103860

    Feeding a bunch of people at a potluck? Like sauerkraut and sausage? Then you'll like this one. :) It feeds a lot of people, so make sure you've got a *large* crock pot (or put it in two smaller ones)...

    Recipe #103843

    I tried this recipe from the Every Food magazine and DH and I just loved it. The flavor, with garlic, parmesan, and a wine sauce, take it beyond the average schnitzel recipe. It's also fairly quick and easy enough for a week night meal.
