Kaffee und Kuchen?

Whether you get together with people for Kaffee und Kuchen, Kaffeetrinken, or a Kaffeeklatsch, you would be following a time-honored tradition in Germany that takes place between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. Friends and family get together to enjoy a piece of cake and a hot cup of coffee or tea. You've probably had a Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest cake), which is a chocolate layer cake filled with whipped cream and Kirschwasser-soaked cherries and decorated with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and cherries. But have you had a slice of "Bienenstich" or "Frankfurter Kranz"? Read more about this delightful German tradition and see if you're inspired to bake something sweet.
