READY IN: 2hrs 15mins




  • Dough directions:
  • Heat milk until lukewarm.
  • Stir in the yeast and let sit for 5 minutes to soften.
  • Mix in the sugar, butter, salt, and egg.
  • Stir in 1 1/4 cups flour.
  • The dough should be very soft and wet.
  • If dough is too much like a batter then add in the extra flour. You want the dough to be soft and sticky though.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let dough rise for about an hour.
  • With floured hands, press dough into the bottom of an 8" cake pan making the edge slightly higher than the center.
  • Cover and let rise for about 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the butter topping.
  • Combine all the ingredients in the butter topping and mix well.
  • Press the risen kuchen down slightly in the center so it will hold the butter topping.
  • Pour the butter topping on top of the kuchen.
  • Bake at 350°F for about 25 minutes.
  • Let cool completely before cutting.
  • The filling will still be runny and sometimes it will run all the way through to the bottom of the pan. It'll still taste good though.
