My father-in-law grew up in N. Dakota speaking German. His mother used to make Kuchen, but she passed away several years ago. While he didn't compare this to hers, he did say it was very, very good and asked me to make it again. Got good reviews from other N. Dakota Germans too. I concur about needing more filling than the recipe makes. Give this a try and I think your family or guests will be pleasantly surprised. Thanks.
This was VERY GOOD. I didn't change a thing. I also made it with more filling. Thank you for sharing.
