Fruit Kuchen Recipe

Publisher Photo
This German recipe—passed down by my grandma—is one of the first desserts I made when I was young. I remember patting the crust into the pan many times. Now I work at a bakery but still make it often, especially in the summer when fresh fruit is plentiful. —Connie Meiselwitz, Kiel, Wisconsin
