Roll Kuchen is a scrumptious German pastry that I have had the pleasure of eating since I was a young girl! My grandma and aunty would often make it for my family when we visited them during the summer; it wasn’t until recently that I began to make roll kuchen on my own. Honestly, I couldn’t wait an entire year without roll kuchen and thought it might be a nice idea to learn how to make it. It is absolutely delicious especially in summer with a few slices of watermelon and dipped in syrup!
The dough for roll kuchen is pretty easy to make as it doesn’t require any complex ingredients. The only trick is that it is quite sticky, but an easy way to solve that is to add a bit of extra flour to the recipe or use plenty of flour when rolling the dough! I chose to use plenty of flour during the rolling process because I don’t trust myself to add the right amount of extra flour into the actual recipe. Baking is somewhat of a science after all!
If you are making this recipe with children it is in your best interest to leave them out of the deep frying process because handling hot oil can be very dangerous if not done with caution. That is the main reason that I have not made this recipe more than twice; before now I had been too young to do this recipe on my own and my parents aren’t as fond of baking as I am! Even now I feel much more comfortable with supervision from my dad once I reach the deep frying stage. Of course my dad is quite willing to lend a hand as long as he gets to enjoy one of his favorite treats of all times!
Roll Kuchen on DLTK’s Crafts for Kids
I am Kaitlyn, a 19 year old girl currentlyliving in Birmingham, England. I am the K in DLTK and I've been working for the family website since I could hold a crayon. Aside from helping my parents on the site, I run after school clubs with primary students in England and find fun ways to teach them maths! I also enjoy my volunteer work with the elderly people in my community—going to care homes and sheltered accomodations to sing, serve tea, or just talk. In my spare time I love to read, journal, play volleyball, and explore the UK. You can view my other blog posts here or connect with me on Facebook or Instagram.
