Peach Kuchen [Source: Beyond Kimchee]

 Kuchen is a traditional German pastry that roughly translates to “cake.” The only difference between this and cakes as we traditionally know them, is that a kuchen is less sweet and usually filled with fruit, custard and whipped cream. It is typically enjoyed with coffee. Ask a German about the “Kaffee and Kuchen” ritual and watch their eyes light up!
