Hilda’s Butterkuchen

Here we go – the first recipe for this year’s Tour de France Cook Along!  Representing Germany and our start point a few days ago for the 2017 Tour de France, I bring you Butterkuchen.

I baked this a few days ago whilst I was in Mount Hotham, spending a skiing weekend with friends and family.

This traditional German tray bake was often baked by my brother-in-law’s mother, Hilda and was a firm family favourite.  It has been a few years now since Hilda passed away, but this weekend we all enjoyed a little reminder of the love she had for her family and revived a culinary tradition by baking this Butterkuchen in her ski lodge with her grandchildren.

Click on the link to find the recipe here, then settle back and tune into the controversy that is erupting around the Tour in Stage 5 ….

Cheers
