Kuchen is for Easter

It was kuchen baking day yesterday … and of course, if you purchase candied fruit on sale like a good German… Easter bread.
It wouldn’t be spring without Easter celebrations. It is an awakening of sorts. There are flowers blooming, the seedlings are started and there’s kuchen.
Unlike some comments I have read, kuchen is not a German pie. No, we have rhubarb and apple pie made with lard crust, yummy. No, kuchen is in its class. There are many ways to make it. Thin, thick, sweet, not-so-sweet – anyway you slice it, it’s delicious.
Thank you mom and grandmother for the recipe. Thank you to my dad’s mom for the abundance of pie plates I managed to buy at the auction.
Thank you to all of you who will be sending me your kuchen and Easter bread recipes and stories… you have until the end of May so get searching for those recipes and send them to us for our preservation project.
Happy Palm Sunday.

    Got to make us some kuchen. I have the craving in my taste buds. Cottage cheese and prune are my faves but apple, peach, etc– I think mom even made banana once. I want to know when you get the recipes all in a book. YUM!

      The beauty of making your own kuchen is you get the first slice warm out of the oven and there is nothing that compares to that …. I will keep you posted.
