Try this amazing apple pie that will delight your whole family.
This recipe was enticing to me because it only needed 8 eggs, which is probably not even seen today. The recipe is based on a book from 1894. I hope you like it and try to make it at home.

My family made this and somehow I forgot it existed for 20 years since I moved away. I could taste it at the end of the video. Weird how we forget things and then food memory kicks in and you remember exactly how something tasted. I'm gonna make this for my coworkers this week I think.

I grew up in Germany, and my mom made this cake all the time, minus the topping. She used a Streusel topping instead. It is also very good with plums or cherries, and every other fairly firm fruit. Oh, the memories!

My father is German and he used to get my mother to make this a lot growing up. It’s not exactly the same, we never had a topping, just with apples or plums on top and that’s it. I make kuchen all the time based on my family’s recipe and my husband (who isn’t German) absolutely loves it. I’m excited to try this version, thank you!

Very similar to my family's kuchen recipe that has been passed down since at least the 1860s. While it was occasional made as Apfel Kuchen or Apricot Kuchen it was mainly made as a Plum/Zwetschgen Kuchen. I ember as a small child we all wanted to be the one to pour the sour cream/heavy cream mixture over the top off the fruit. We never had so many family friends drop by each time my Grandma or Mother would make this (at made me truly believe in kuchen ESP).
LordGertz 11 days ago
@Tori Beveridge Originally I think it was Heavy Cream, but by the time my Grandma had kids it had both sour cream & heavy cream, and that was my Mother's version as well, she described it richer and tangier then her own Grandmother's version. It also became the family's defacto favorite version, my Grandma was all about little "secret" tricks in her cooking & baking, multiple types of dairy, the temperature of ingredients when added, sometimes adding the same ingredients at multiple points in the recipe instead of all at the same time, and to never be afraid of adding butter & dairy ("Do you want it to taste good or do you want it to taste good for you?") She also had her own measurements (walnuts of butter).

During the 1980's, I went to Germany and stayed with my Oma for 6 months. She didn't speak English and I didn't speak German, but somehow, we got along. She made this cake, several times, while I was there and I carefully wrote down the recipe, as I watched her. I tried making it several times, and while it was "okay", it wasn't nearly as good as hers. But, I'm going to try it again!

Thank you for posting this, this looks almost exactly like my grandmother's kuchen. I used to help her make it and it make me feel very grown up. She put less custard and brushed over the fruit to make a glaze. Apple was my favorite but she also made it with plums or peaches.

This seems really similar to the Polish apple cake that my grandmother who immigrated to the U.S from Poland in the 1940's, would make. I have no idea how common it is or if a lot of other people, (from Poland or not,) make it.

@Carl A. N. Yeah, this recipe is pretty much exactly the same except, I think, without the powdered sugar in the dough and without the sour cream in the topping. You top it with cinnamon sugar instead. I just looked it up and I can't find it online anywhere.

I think a lot of recipes have some form of common roots. But over the years the methods have been changed to fit more into each countries culture.
This seems similar to the way my grandfather makes apple tart. He uses a standard pie crust on the bottom and then layers thinly sliced apples and pours a custard on top. I'll have to try this recipe to compare them :)

This is German Kuchen. Grew up on this in the 70's, polished a many of these, wonderful. Next substitute the apples for peaches, you won't sorry. My grandma and grandpa settled in ND and SD and were part of the Germans in Russia groups, and came to the US in 1900 as children. Time to review these wonderful recipes. Kids don't realize what real butter and creams do to things, they just eat the store versions that they don't put it in because they aren't shelf stable. Cookies with no butter? Oh my.

Kinda liquidy, no large chunks like the store bought slaw, i remember using that knuckle scratching machine to finely slice the cabbage if anyone out there has an ‘old’ recipe, would appreciate the help, everything we’ve found/used just isnt the same (so im told, never tried it as a child, but now am brave enough, lol) thanks soooo much 🤞🏼

Though I am not German, I love this traditional recipe because you don't add that filling syrup that is found in the American version of apple pie. These days they use high fructose corn syrup among other ingredients like cornstarch in order to create an emulsion out of the apples. Some people in turn use less apples 🍎 in order to save money and use more sugar/sweetener.

My family has kept up the tradition of this sort of dessert for over a century! We use a sweet yeast dough, and layer different types of fruit on top, but it's essentially the same. Stories made this out to be a traditional dessert of the "Germans from Russia" who emigrated from Russian territories to North America. Mainly North and South Dakota in the USA, and northward to Saskatchewan and Alberta in Canada. Asking for "kuchen" will usually get you the same dish in any of these locations - despite its' broad meaning in German.

@Mara my grandfather's mother was a part of these people, and my mom said she would always mention being from the German Desert; though she did not know much English, so I do not know if she meant to use a different word, I cannot find any such place on Google and am wondering if there is a mistranslation somewhere. I know this isn't the place to ask such a thing, but I'm from South Dakota and have always wanted to learn more about the background of my grandfather's mother's family and I don't know how to ask Google this specific question.

There is an apple tree found in 1998 in Wales called Bardsey. It has a lemon character to its flavor - besides the apple characteristics - to make such a concoction slightly lemony without actually using lemon zest. I must try it both ways & see how it goes. Never had the pleasure of this kuchen.

I just made it today. It came out all right… but the thing is I couldn’t find sour cream at the supermarket so I had to make it myself. The cake part came out a little dry and it I noticed that was missing salt to give it a contrast. Acabei de fazer. Saiu razoável. Um dos problemas foi encontrar o sour cream, então comprei creme de leite e fiz eu mesmo usando limão é uma pitada de sal. A nada ficou um pouco seca e sem sal. Na próxima vez acerto! 🍰

My Oma used to bake these kind of cakes and take them to the local bakery yard with a slip of paper stuck on top having the family name on it. They would bake the cakes and we would return to find our cake among many others and bring it home. Many families did not have large ovens for large baking pans this was a wonderful experiences..it does not exist anymore in most if not all small towns. Thank you this was nice to watch.. I copied the recipe and will try it tonight. Not sure the size of the pan. I will bake mine a little darker crust like Oma’s 🥰

I remember the same tradition from my childhood in Germany, a small town of 2000 people. Especially during town celebrations the oven in the local bakery was open to homebakers. And many used this opportunity to make a bigger cake, my mom and grandma participated. I wonder how much they needed to pay to get it baked in the big oven. I wonder if my mom remembers. She is 82 now

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I really want to try this. It looks so good. My Oma was born in Austria and came to America in the 1920's sometime before WWII. Her family was German Jewish and traveled a lot. She wouldn't talk about her heritage after WWII was over. She was afraid she would get sent back to Germany. Anyways, she handed down a few recipes to my mom, but she died when I was young, and I didn't get to know her very well to ask her for more recipes. The one I loved the most was her chocolate cake. It was a very dense cake and used very little ingredients. I think it was a flourless cake. Do you have a recipe like that in your 1894 recipe book? Blessings!

alittlelunatic Month ago
Germans still bake cakes like that a lot, either with a yeast dough or a dough as shown here called Rührteig which translates to stirred dough. The fruit is seasonal, could be rubarb, plums, apples, sour cherries or berries. It depends on the region what kind of topping goes on it though. Around Berlin we tend to put Streusel on top which is a crumble close to simple sugar cookie dough sometimes mixed with nuts and depending on the fruit containing cinnamon or other spices like ground cardamom or ground ginger. But then we still have the tradition of Kaffee und Kuchen mostly on weekends which translates to coffee and cake and is a time to get together with family or friends for an our or two.

This not a pie, it is kuchen. In the German-American household where I grew up kuchen is an un-iced cake generally eaten at breakfast or with coffee / tea later in the day. Torte is what we called iced layer cakes.

Whoa! German apple cake! I learned how to make this as a child growing up in Michigan. Not sure where I learned it, but it was my go to baked dish. One of my favorites. Haven't had it in decades.

OMGod, the end result looks so delicious 😋. I caught myself sniffing as soon as I saw the image of the dessert placed on the table. I wanted a taste so bad. Definitely have to try this recipe. 👍🏻😊😍 I think what surprises me most is that I've never seen nor heard of this kind of apple cake/pie.

This was eight beautiful minutes of time travel. 60 years ago I would sit with my mother while she baked like this. I would operate the mixer and add the ingredients. Thankyou so much for posting this.

Family in Appalachia here has been making this type of pie for generations, although they came from Scotland in the 1600s as opposed to Germany. As a blacksmith and potter have made and repaired some of the pans my cousins use to make this and a few other dishes since can not really get those sizes anymore that fit the wood stoves. Always get this kinda pie as payment later if I'm not visiting, or a nice pig pickin if I am, since thats often when several family have need of repairs and I can make the trip. Biggest difference I can see is the use of buttermilk thickened with vinegar instead of sour cream, and they tend to use crab apples with honey used instead of sugar. Use whats available, although I tend to prefer sweeter apples and sugar to the former.

Joseph, my german-scottish colleague made this cake one day but dairy free. It was fantastic. So tasty that I want to remake for my children.

My mother (we're Swedish) makes a variant of this with granulated sugar instead of powdered. It makes the surface crispy and caramelized, and oh so good. She also uses the basic recipe for rhubarb and other variants.

Such a shame that I’ve never had this. I remember being told that most of my Mother’s old family recipes were only written in German. The problem is that her family stopped teaching the language to their kids with my Grandpa’s generation.

I love this channel. It's interesting that many old recipes include a large number of eggs---this one is like an apple omelet with sugar added lol.

I make something like this which my GrandMother taught me the only difference is I added a short crust pastry then the cake mix with the apples and topping, I have been making this for the past 40 plus years, here is Australia you can buy that type of cake here I have bought it a few times but I like my own version because I love the crunch of the pastry with softness of the cake with the sweet and sourness of the apples and sour cream topping.

My Czech family made dough from wheat flour, beaten egg and a little salt, with unsalted butter cut into it (like with piecrust) until you got a firm dough similar to bread. We pushed the dough into a buttered, rectangular pyrex baking dish. Then we put fruit on toUẞs Pflaumenkuchen (Plum cake) with the oval, dark purple prune plums. Sometimes, we used fresh apricots. We cut the stone fruits in 1/2, removed pits, and placed the fruit halves skin side up on the dough. Mmmmm!

Thanks for the delicious recipe! However, one detail may be wrong: the recipe states "Saure Sahne" which is not sour cream, sour cream is most compareable to the german "Schmand" and has a higher fat content. Saure Sahne has ~10% fat content whilst sour cream has ~12-20% and Schmand has ~30%. So if you want to replace Saure Sahne with Sour Cream in the states then pick a lower fat content (you state 30% in your recipe, don't use that) or try greek yoghurt, which however may taste a little more sour.

Looks very similar to my grandmothers Apple Kuchen I know the crust had yeast in it and the top had a strudel crumble with butter flour cinnamon and sugar no one in the family has her recipe and she never ever used a measuring cup ….. this recipe is very close thank you so much I enjoy your channel I brings back very fond memories of my sweet amazing Grandma Anna Steinwachs

@J Vis As l said, it's been years since l made this and, from memory, the 13g in the recipe, was the weight of a packet of yeast. Most dry yeast comes in jars now so l googled to find an equivalent spoon measurement. It is possible that it's wrong but l checked quite a few sites. l got the recipe off a German friend 40 years ago and made it when l lived in italy so neither remember nor have access to the brands l used. The recipe is so old that it may have used fresh yeast in which case half the weight in dry yeast would be enough. A slight increase in yeast has to be made to allow for the butter and egg in the recipe though so, feel free to experiment.

Thanks for posting this. I guess I had apple cake on my mind and this popped up. I make a similar cake that was from an old church cookbook here in CT. A lot of people at church were (and some still are) of Swedish ancestry. My family is- in spite of my name! I actually make the version I know for a church dinner every year- except for the last two years because of the restrictions for the pandemic. We're doing it again this fall. I make about 10 of these cakes. I'm going to try this version at home- if I changed the recipe at the dinner, there would be an uproar!
