I got this recipe from a farm that sells blueberries and strawberries on the side of a country road in Alabama. There was no name attributed to the recipe.....I just pulled off when I saw the table with berries for sale when I was traveling back roads coming back from my Mom's house. I was intrigued because a doctor I work with is always raving about kuchen she gets in Wisconsin.
