I have been really sick for two days, cant cook or bake or even stay out of bed for very long : ( So I decided to go thru my box of recipes. Its a big shoe box filled with amazing recipes from every family member from both sides of my family and also many friends. This is one of the recipes I have found in the box. When Grandma Jerry was alive it was a family favorite. Grandma was German (lol with a name like Schultz its kinda obvious) She didnt cook alot but when she did make us some of her German favorites boy were they good! I hope you enjoy this kuchen, my family has always loved it!
