5 German Delicious Cakes For A Coffee or Tea Break

Germany is a country with not only different kinds of bread but also delicious and scrumptious cakes. You should not forget  to try eating the cakes in a cafeteria when you are travelling in Germany

Traditionally, the Germans have their breakfast at 6-7 am, lunch at around 1 pm, coffee breaks at 3 in the afternoon and supper is between 6 to 7 in the evening. The lunch time is the heavy meal of the day while the evening meal is just bread, butter and some ham or cheese or maybe salad. It´s a bit like the traditional breakfast.

Well, most Germans especially those who are working, have their own eating time schedules. The retired people have their own meal time as well as they don´t have to wake up early anymore.

Talking about coffee break, these cakes in the photos are some of the cakes you should not miss to try. Enjoy! 

1. Fruit Cake---I made this one when I was in my home country Philippines for our            Christmas celebration a few years ago.

2. Chocolate Cake---a ready made one I bought in the shop when I had no time to bake.

3. Cheese Cake (this one with cherries) ---when I was in the city and had a coffee break in a cafeteria.

4. Apfelstrudel / Apple Strudel with vanilla custard---when I was with my friend in a Bavarian      Altes Hackerhaus restaurant in Munich. My yummy dessert.

5. Schwarzwäldertorte / Black Forest Cake---I baked this cake last month as a birthday gift to a friend. The link is a recipe on how to bake this cake.

I know your mouth is watering now while seeing these yummy photos of mine. I can understand as I am getting hungry writing this article, too. I hope you have enjoyed reading and that you will comment or even read some of my recipes or more in my Hubpages writing site. Here is my HP link.

Thank you very much!!!

3 Beautiful Places To Visit In Bavaria, Germany

There are more than 3 beautiful places to visit in the south of Germany. I only have to mention 3 of all the places I have visited there. Of course I will write some more but I have to do it in different posts as it would be too long. Okay! Here they are.

1. Herrenchiemsee Palace, the Royal Palace of King Ludwig ll, the so called "Mad King"  who was found dead in the lake. 

The view from the Herrenchiemsee Palace. The garden viewing the fountain  directly showing Chiemsee. 

2. The small village of Toerwang in Samerberg. From the height of Toerwang, the beauty of Chiemsee can be seen. Awesome! 

3. Fraueninsel or Frauenchiemsee which means Island for the Women.

For more information, just click on the blue printed links which lead you to my Hubpages articles. They are all about my travel in those places. Thanks for reading.
