Fast Relief for Dry Skin - Glysolid Skin Cream


Also Known As:   Zuckerkuchen

This is a butter cake, the most basic kind of Blechkuchen. It is made from a yeast dough, which is baked with a topping of butter pieces and sugar. Some regions also add almond slices as a topping.

The butter cake is a favorite of Bremen and Westphalia (Westfalen). It is often served at weddings and funerals. Because of this, it is also called "Freude- und Leidskuchen" (Happiness and Sorrow cake).
