Germany is well-known for its rich and diverse baking traditions – fresh bread, delicate cakes and flaky pastries, to name a few. One of these traditions is Kaffee und Kuchen, the act of sitting down with family and friends to enjoy a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in the afternoon. My love of coffee and cake is well-established and is the reason for the name of my blog!
Most people have heard of Black Forest Cake, pretzels and Lebkuchen, but what about Donauwelle, Baumkuchen or Vanillekipferl? This delicious guide to German bakes from Swissotel fills you in on some of the best loved baked goods from all over Germany.
