Best Cake Recipes

Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking from AlansKitchen.comWhen it comes right down to it, the "typical" Pennsylvania Dutch cake is some kind of a coffee cake-probably crumb-topped, often encased in pie crust, sometimes rich with molasses, sometimes with cheese, sometimes adorned with apple quarters, sometimes with raisins or nuts. You know all that if you have been coming along with me.

List of Cake Recipes

But all that, of course, is Kuchen and Kuchen can cover a lot of ground in baking. Pretty much everything that goes in the oven, is dropped in fat, or is fried on a griddle (if it's sweet), started out as Kuchen in Pennsylvania. So-Kuchen is cakes in Pennsylvania, and of all kinds. In this section are set forth the cakes made and liked by the Pennsylvania Dutch, that is, cake in the usual sense of the word. 

You cannot stand up and say they are indigenous but you cannot say they are not, because they have been baked in Pennsylvania Dutch ovens for generations.  At any rate, these are Pennsylvania's favorite cakes.  And they're all from old, tried and true recipes.
