Kuchen Recipes

It's easy and I always have the ingredients on hand. Inexpensive and tastes like a lot of effort went into it.


Crust: Filling:


Cut butter into dry ingredients. Pat lightly into ungreased 11x7 inch pan.

Arrange drained peaches over crust. Mix rest of ingredients and pour over peaches. Bake 425 degrees F for 10 minutes, then 325 degrees F for about 35 minutes or until set.

Does anyone have a recipe for a kuchen made with concord grapes with their seeds? My German grandmother used to make one and she did not seed them. I also think she left their skins on. Thanks.

Dear Maryeileen,

I wish I had this receipe for you. I too remember my German grandmother making these cakes with grapes. Also with peaches or cottage cheese. You really brought back memories for me.

There was a concord grape kuchen recipe in the Plain Dealer the other week- maybe last Wednesday or the Wednesday before. Go on their website and see if you can retrieve it. My Grandma in Maple Heights also made this kuchen- she made it look so easy!

Susanna, The reader who submitted the question to The Plain Dealer is my Dad! (The recipe that Bev printed in her column is not the one we're looking for.)

Did you ever get the recipe? I would love to have it. My mother made this every fall (along with peach, apple and cheese kuchens) The aroma was intoxicating. Skins and seeds never bothered us!

Grape Kuchen

2 cups sifted flour
3 teas. baking powder
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening ( I use unsalted butter)
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
4 cups of Concord grapes (approx.)

Leave the grapes on the stems, and rinse in a colander, and let sit and drain while you mix the dough. Don't take them off the stems to rinse, because they absorb too much water.

Sift the dry ingredients together. Cut the shortening into the dry ingredients until dry and crumbly. Beat the egg with the milk, and add to the dry ingredients. Mix until just blended.

Spread batter into a 9 x 13" pan, that has been greased and floured.
Starting at one corner of your pan, remove the grapes from the stems, and place them side by side, as close together as you can, making rows across the pan. Push them slightly into the dough, just a little. Cover the entire top of the dough with grapes.

Mix together to make a crumb topping:

1/2 cup sifted flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teas. cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter

Crumble this mixture over the top of your grapes in the pan, and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

My mother used pillsbury hot roll mix (1box) following package directions ( it contains yeast and add 1 tbsp sugar and 2 eggs instead of the one called for by the package directions. This made 2 9 inch kuchens. Added grapes and pushed down into dough a bit. Topped with: 1 and 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1and 1/2 cups of hard cold margarine ( this was back in the 50s) mix with fork or hands till crumbly. Top and bake kuchens per package directions. This may have come from the Cleveland Plain Dealer because I have several other recipes she saved from that newspaper and the Cleveland Press. Hope this helps.
