Apple Pudding Cake

  • 3 medium apples, sliced and peeled
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup milk or almond milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond flavor
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups boiling water

Blend all of the dry ingredients in a nine-inch by nine-inch pan, then add the apples, making sure they get covered in the mixture. Mix the vanilla or almond flavor with the milk and blend it with the dry ingredients and drop tiny amounts of the butter over the top. Next, pour in the boiling water and do not stir it! Cook for 40 minutes at 400 degrees.

Cherry-Almond Fudge

  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup fresh or dried cherries, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Line a square pan with foil and grease it liberally. Heat your chocolate chips and condensed milk in the microwave for one minute. Stir the mixture, then heat it for ten second intervals, stirring until it's smooth. Mix in your cherries, almonds and almond extract. Pour the mixture into the pan, cover the surface with wax paper and put it into the refrigerator for two hours.

Gingerbread-Butterscotch Cookies

  • 1 1/4 cups soft butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 small packs cook-and-serve butterscotch pudding
  • 3 teaspoons ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon juice from fresh ginger root

    Using a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter until they're fluffy, then whip in the eggs. Next, add the dry ingredients and the ginger juice. You can the juice by grating and squeezing fresh ginger root. Once everything is mixed together, refrigerate the dough for an hour.

    On a clean, lightly-floured surface, roll out your dough until it's one-quarter of an inch thick. Using cookie cutters, punch cookies from the dough and place them on a cookie sheet. Cook them for six to eight minutes at 350 degrees.

    Germany has a long history of being a country with a superb cuisine. With these spectacular German recipes for dessert, you can make your next gathering a memorable one.
