Authentic German Recipes

Welcome to my collection of German food recipes: German desserts, German christmas cookies, German cake recipes, meat and potato dishes and vegetable side dishes. All pretty easy, authentic and all in English!

But first let me introduce myself. I'm Sarah, the owner of this site. I'm not German by the way, but British and have lived in Germany for 25 years! Must be the food, apart from my husband being German of course! So a big warm welcome to my cookbook of German dishes that I want to share with you.

Yes, you can start cooking your favourite recipes such as German Jaeger Schnitzel in a creamy Jaeger sauce, or a recipe for beef rouladen which goes great with one of my special Christmas red cabbage recipes and German potato dumplings.

Of course there is the all time favourite authentic German potato salad recipe which comes from my German mother-in-law. Not forgetting fantastic German cakes such as Black Forest Cake and the easiest German apple cake recipe called Versunkener Apfelkuchen that even your husband can bake!

You'll find easy recipes for you to make and enjoy at home. However, be aware, some are for the more experienced cook!  I can still remember my first attempt at making German bread dumplings - what a disaster, they all fell apart in the water! But now, they come out perfect.

I can make German potato salad just like my mother-in-law, in fact the recipe is hers! Homemade German Spaetzle, a tasty German meatloaf (Hackbraten) and so many other traditional German dishes can be found here. My British family have been introduced to German cooking too!

One of the most popular sections is lost recipes where readers have requested recipes for those that they remember as children or in the family. Take a look, you might be able to help or find recipes that you've been looking for. And I do love reading all the comments added by visitors.

There is a section for the kids too! They will love trying out German recipes and helping out in the kitchen. German meatballs (Frikadellen), German pancakes, christmas cookies recipes and many other German kids recipes to try.

I might ask that you bookmark my site and share it with friends as I do add recipes when I can and it also helps to spread the word. I regularly receive appreciative emails from visitors praising my site and thanking me for including their favourite traditional German recipes that their Mum or Oma used to make.

So are you ready to start cooking the German way?

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy my authentic recipes and see you again soon.

Guten Appetit!
