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.
