Sometimes the simpler better, and when it comes to this German Butter cake, ain’t that the truth! Take one look at this ingredient list and you’ll say “I can do that!”. Perfect for beginner baker’s or just when you want a simple sweet treat, it is no wonder this one is so popular in Germany! Easily adapt this recipe to add in some yummy fruit such as blueberries, apricots, or peaches by mixing them into the dough or layering them on the bottom of the tray.
My favorite part though, is the nutty sliced almond topping – mmm! I swear I could eat a pound of that stuff on its own, and I wouldn’t even feel guilty about it! If you’re in a hurry, you could just make some of that topping and spoon it over a scoop of ice cream – I bet that would make an amazing dessert as well! However, I do recommend making the whole cake because it’s one of the best I’ve ever tasted.
