Blechkuchen - One style of cake but many varieties!

In German bakeries, you will often see square, individual servings of cake. These are known as Blechkuchen.

The word Blech means "sheet" so a Blechkuchen is a cake that is baked in a large baking sheet, like a sheet cake. These cakes are usually rectangular in form and they are cut into squares for serving. It is how the cake is baked (on a large baking sheet) that makes it a Blechkuchen, not the ingredients used.

There are an unlimited number of Blechkuchen varieties. Check out our "Blechkuchen" page for popular varieties, recipes, and more!
