Basic Kuchen dough is a sweet dough with a little lemon peel and most often topped with fruit, with or without a custard topping and baked. Traditionally for centuries a yeast dough was used and that is what my German grandmother used, but many today even in Germany use a dough that uses baking powder or even a baking mix.
Kirsch soaked chocolate sponge cake with whipped cream, chocolate and cherry filling, iced with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
This traditional German treat has two layers of yeast cake, a vanilla cream filling, and a crunchy gooey honey almond topping.
