This great recipe comes to us from Roti n Rice - with one twist; I used regular all purpose flour instead of bread flour as her recipe calls for. This results in a more cakey and less breadlike kuchen. This base recipe is also great with blueberries (1 pt) or apple (3 medium) or u could be adventurous and try pineapple :) Enjoy!
