This one is no harder than making pancakes. You don't need to buy a new pan; you can use an 8x8 Pyrex baking dish. It's also very yummy and very German.

The first vocational training I took, just my first Job was "Konditor" (sweet confectioner) here in Munich. Although I quit this Job about 25 years ago, I still know everything.

You really want to make this over there in America?

Schneeballen is not a desert. You don't eat cake for desert in Germany. You do combined with coffee in the afternoon.

Or just hot fruits on top of vanilla ice cream (berries).
Eiskaffee is something you can make easily. Take vanilla ice, cold coffe, and whipped cream on the top. But please, Whip (beat) the plain cream yourself and don't take this ready fixed spray can dirt.

As has been mentioned a number of times in the thread, German Chocolate Cake isn't German.

Sorry it is in German but here´s a list http://www.chefkoch.de/rs/s0g87t90/D...e-Rezepte.html

Perhaps something simple like Bratapfle with vanille sauce

Do you serve this warm or room temp?
I make butter cake for my daughter. It's her favorite. I serve it at room temperature. I think the butter topping needs to set for a bit.

I am from Philadelphia. My mother used to buy Butter cakes at local bakeries. They were just as good as my grandmother's cakes. Yummy.

My grandmother used to make butter horn cookies. They were to die for. They are a lot of work, but worth it. I usually make them for Christmas.

Here's a good recipe. (I don't glaze them. I just dust them with powdered sugar.)
