    Germany's recipes

    Schneegestöber (Snowstorm or Raspberry dessert)

    Voted as the favourite recipe idea by the German students:

    Ingredients for 4 persons: 500 g low-fat quark (or mascarpone), 250 - 500 g fresh raspberries (depending on the season) or frozen raspberries in winter, 50 g powdered sugar, 1 packet of vanilla sugar, 200 ml of sweet cream, meringue dots as desired

    Rinse fresh raspberries very briefly in a colander with cold water, drain and transfer to a bowl. Then sprinkle with sugar, mash a little with a spoon and let it steep.
    Place the frozen raspberries in a bowl to thaw, sprinkle the raspberries with sugar while they are still frozen, allow to thaw.
    Put some particularly beautiful berries from the raspberries aside for decoration.
    Mix the remaining raspberries with the quark. Depending on your own taste, maybe a little more sugar. Whip the cream with 1 packet of vanilla sugar to make a stiff whipped cream. Fold in loosely under the raspberry curd.

    Optional: crush the meringue dots in a plastic bag and fold in.


    Bratapfel (Baked Apple)

    This dessert is enjoyed especially in the colder season.

    Ingredients: apples, cranberry-nut mix, marzipan (You can also change the filling to your liking with e.g. raisins, cinnamon, sugar, ...)


    Karoffelpuffer / Reibekuchen / Rösti (Potato Pancakes)

    Depending on where in Germany you are, different names are used for this traditional recipe. It's easy to make and a staple of the German cuisine.
