Lydia Remembers...

I have so many wunderbar memories in the kitchen with my Oma, and have had MANY of her most popular and traditional recipes, like these delicious easy German desserts!

Oma and I have made lots of these dessert recipes together and some have become my very favorites to make at home.

I quite often find myself making thiseasy flaky dessert recipejust to have for something sweet to snack on during those warm summer days. I shared some with my lovely neighbours, then received a text asking for the recipe! It made my day and it always makes me smile when I get to say, "You can find it on my Oma's website!"

In the picture below, you can see my very firstRotegroats! I've had this recipe at Oma's many times and LOVE it so I thought, why not make it myself? It turned out so well which doesn't always happen on the first try, but hey, mistakes happen! ;)

This recipe was very simple, and everyone gobbled it down pretty quickly! My Dad recognized some of the flavors in the pudding from his childhood growing up with Oma, so that made it even more of a special treat. It didn't last too far into the next day...it was THAT good.

Here are some of my favorites of Oma's desserts :

  • Cream Puff Swans
  • German Rhubarb Pudding
  • Oma's Black Forest Dessert
