Trio of German Treats

Perhaps I’ve enjoyed a bit too much coffee this morning, but seriously folks, I’m all over the map – the dessert map, that is – when it comes to deciding which food adventures to share with you today.  I’ve decided that I’m simply not going to decide.  Instead, I’m going to indulge my sweet tooth and share a trio of German desserts… a foodie mosaic!  I’ll let you decide what best captures your attention.  Post a comment about your favorite photo below, and I’ll work on recreating the dish for a future post!

Thin layers of chocolate cake and chocolate mousse, all contained within a shell of chocolate genache. Yum!
Fresh apple slices baked atop a light vanilla cake, finished with a smattering of crumb topping. Delish!
A dense cheesecake layer is topped with a fluffy layer of cheesecake mousse in which tart glazed cherries are suspended. Yes, please!

  1. While I’m usually all about anything chocolate, the apple cake gets my vote today. It looks like something my German grandmother would have baked herself. And I’m sure my German dad would enjoy a slice with a good strong cup of coffee. It just looks like grandma’s kitchen.

  2. My daughter lives in Germany and I visited her last May. Right next door to where she lives & works, is a lovely little grocery store. She & her fellow worker friend introduced me to this apple cake thing, lol. It was indeed delicious. They introduced me to a lot of good German food. 🙂

      1. The selection of cheese and sausages, salami meats were incredible. I was amazed at the large department in the store. Wish I had that much choice here.
