      I think too much nutmeg overpowered the other flavors.

      I found this recipe after trying one of the other apple kuchen recipes on this website and have to give you five stars for this one. It is as simple as taking a box of cake mix, but boy is it worth the few extra steps! Perfect combination of ingredients and measurements for the end result. Thank you so much. I only wish I had found this one first. Note to me (never make a recipe for company without testing it first. Reviewers can be wrong. LOL

      After making defferent German dishes I have a new found respect for my Great Grandma and Grandma. I see why they never left the kitchen. There is alot of time spent on making these dishes! My DD and I made this for dessert tonight. It was wonderful. There was 1 piece left and I had it for breakfast. Thanks for sharing this it made me feel like I was back in Great Grandma's kitchen again.
