Classic German Baking
The Very Best Recipes for Traditional Favorites, From Pfeffernüsse to StreuselkuchenBook - 2016
German baking is legendary and informs baking traditions the world over- Christmas cookies, coffee cakes, delicate tortes, soft seeded rolls, and hearty dumplings all have their origins in Germany (and Austria). In Classic German Baking , blogger and author Luisa Weiss--who was born in Berlin to an Italian mother and American father, and married into a family of bakers with roots in Saxony--has collected and mastered the recipes most essential to every good baker's repertoire. In addition to the pillars of the German baking tradition, like Christmas stollen, lebkuchen , and apple strudel , Weiss includes overlooked gems, like eisenbahner --an almond macaroon paste piped onto jam-topped shortbread--and rosinenbr tchen --the raisin-studded whole wheat buns that please a child's palate and a parent's conscience--to create the resource that bakers across the world have long wanted.
