Plums and Apples are in season! 

Fall is gently knocking at our doors and Zwetschgen - known here as European Plums - are a sweet reminder of summer whilst offering a bundled 'health package' (with its variety of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibers) to prepare for the fall season. Apples with their crisp flesh are another 'health treat' and what better to do than a delicious German Apple Cake. As it says:  'An apple a day, keeps the doctor away'.

Enjoy the following sweet and savory cakes for dinner, brunch or afternoon coffee/tea: 


Try our signature Sauerkraut Cake with Bratwurst, our traditional 'Zwiebelkucha' Onion Cake with Tyrolian Speck or our 'Kartoffelkucha' Potato Cake with Alpine Cheese.
