Wow!! Cakes are so different in Germany and the USA, and for this video Mr. German Man made a German cake and I baked an American cake. Yummmyy!!
So our question for you is: What other general differences have you noticed for baking or buying cakes in Germany, the USA or wherever you live? And which cake would you prefer to eat, the German cake or the American cake?

I agree with everyone, who said, that you've made "Torte" and Stefan made "Kuchen". In any case, nice video and you two are such a sweet couple ^^ P.S. you should try making boiled milk frosting. As far as I know, it's also American and traditional for the Red Velvet cake. =)

If you want to bake on a professional level, you come to way more differences than normal users. For example: find the type of flour in the US that is equal to the one in Germany can be a challenge (especially when you want to do bread)

Everyone in Germany is said to consume approximately 35 kg of sugar a year on average. I always wondered, who is eating my part in it. After watching quite some videos of Dana I got a strong suspicion...

No, its a Applepie and a Buttercream-tarte.Thats fundamentally different. Your Language says often the same Word for different Stuff,In Germanyor better in this Continent,we have more specific Words for all this Stuff. That is one Reason, that Peoples that speak English, in other Countryswere seen light-minded. In English, at example it give only a Castle,and it names Neuschwanstein a Castle,Its not a Castle in German Language. Did you read you Sprinkles Packaging?Its called Zuckerstreusel.Thats a Name, that People can distingush, from other Streusel.A word like Sugar Crumble,don exist in English,you called it Sprinkles.Other Languages names things better. And you had made the best Example, for light-minded english speaking Peoples,that say Cake to all Stuff,that People herecan distingush and have a Word for .

I'm quite sure they are both delicious in their own special way. But I would go for the german cake, because I'm not a fan of cakes that have colours you can't achieve without adding food coloring. It's a simple matter of what my eyes tell me and has little to do with what I expect to taste.

I prefer the German way of Cake. In Germany an American cake is more like a German "Torte" and I don't like Torte that much. To much cream and stuff. Even though I like Haselnusscreme-Torte (Hazelnutcream).

Like everyone said before....there is a diffrence between cake and cake! In my opinion ther a re a lot of frute cakes in the us, they are called pies and they are everywhere. And then there are buttercream cakes in germany as well. Like kasenut or frankfurter kranz. There might be no foodcolouring but both countries have both kind of cakes.

German version any day over the sugar block US version. As an American many of us don't like the traditional birthday cakes. The intense buttercream is too much and is 80% just for looks. Even for my daughters bday weve started doing either cheesecake or vanilla cake with whipped cream frosting.

When I was in NY city I went to bakery and saw so many cakes and cookies. I couldn't help myself so I bought like 10 different ones to try out. The taste really dissapointed me, all I could taste was sugar and it was too much of it ... Conclusion : US -> Much better looking cakes but not as good as in europe ( for me )

In Ireland, the cake we most recognise as a German cake is Black Forest Gateau, which is one of the most decadent cakes ever but is all about dairy cream rather than frosting ( I love the sour cherries!) I always think of Cheesecake when I think of US cakes, don't know why. Irish cakes are usually rather simple. Caraway seed cake was a cake my Mum made that I don't think I've seen outside a Irish kitchen, and fruit cakes are also popular. Victoria sponges were for birthdays, etc. We're also culinary magpies though, so we borrow other country's cake recipes all the time!

The American cake freaks me out, it looks so artificial with the bright colors! My boyfriend is American and when I visited him and saw cakes in the grocery store I honestly was not tempted in the slightest, which was probably the first time in my life I wasn't intrigued by sweets! I live in Sweden and I'm used to slightly more "natural" cakes, often with whipped cream (PROPER whipped cream, not from a can), berries/fruits, chocolate, maybe even nuts sometimes. If I were to bake what I consider to be a very normal cake I'd make a sponge cake/white cake type base (possibly flavored with lemon and/or coconut, that's nice!), level it, put strawberry jam between the layers, cover it with whipped cream, and decorate with sliced strawberries. Maybe sprinkle some finely chopped white or normal chocolate on top as well. I don't believe buttercream, or any other frosting, is very common here.

The cakes look great. But wouldn't it be better to compare two equal cakes. As example: an apple pie and a german Apfelkuchen...or a german Torte and an american cake? And- that is my mind- but I don't like the thick cake between the buttercreme. I would make 5 thinner cakes and put buttercreme between and would soak the cakes with juice, liqueur or coffee ;-)

I'd prefer Stefan's item but I'd call it more of a pie. I don't think it was a fair comparison. Dana's cake looked perfect too but it looks more like the ones I'd see at a child's birthday party with lots of color and icing. If I make a layer cake (eg like a chocolate layer cake) I'd only have two layers and I only put the icing on the top and in the middle, not on the sides--so there's less icing and sugar in the cake.

Virtually all German desserts are dry and tasteless. The bakeries are all identical, i think every pastry in the country is made in a giant factory in Hamburg. Zero individuality, flair or interest. They all taste lime they're made of sawdust. That's not fair. Some taste lime wet cement. I miss the great bakeries in america with wo derful fruit torts and other pastries made with care and reflection as opposed to the German jndustrial bakeries.

I prefer the German kuche. But he forgot cinnamon. The American cake looks better but I think frosting is so American. As a Dutch woman I do not like frosting, its too fat for me.

American cakes while tasty/sugary are not the healthiest, icing consists mainly of fat and sugar. Colorants are not the healthiest thing to be eating as well, especially not little children, read about ADHD and food colorings. Somehow all the cakes in the US taste the same, with some variations of course. My favorite german "Torte" is Pfirsich-Sahne- Torte.

review on everything
I think is wrong to compare the word and meaning of cake with the German word Kuchen. It is not the same. The German Kuchen is called a Pie in English while the cake is called Torte. Cake = Torte Pie = Kuchen We do make big style "torte" cakes in germany. Like for weddings or birthdays.

MrsSchwarzwaldmaedl, Brilliant blue FCF is banned in Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, and Norway. Whether you find Dana's blue color offensive, that is your prerogative. My mother used to add black raspberry juice to a sugar glaze and it made the danish pastry extra special; with its purple color and raspberry taste. Many would say it had an odd color too. By the way, I have a MS in Biology from Kent State, and PhD in Biochemistry from Syracuse U. I studied/worked food sciences with Nestlé Suisse. I also studied at Le Cordon Bleu Paris for fun. Danke, gleichfalls

I’m American, but my mother’s family kept a connection to their German roots. “Kuchen” in my family is a soft yeast dough layered with fruit and a not-so-sweet custard. This version is popular among the descendants of German colonists who fled Russia/Ukraine a hundred years ago. You can even find it in grocery stores in some parts of the Midwest and Western Canada! One cultural difference I’ve noticed from the comments section is the tone. To me, the German commenters sound snobbish and snooty. They probably think they are just being honest, but i think they are taking themselves too seriously. It’s interesting to observe, for sure!

I've never liked frosting on cakes because it looks so unnatural. What is the point of making a cake from scratch if you're adding all foodcoloring and so much sugar? If someone wants to eat such and unhealthy cake there are probably tousands of pre packed cakes in supermarkets. But I've heard that food is in general way sweeter than in European countries. All I can accept is handmade chocolate icing only on the top layer of the cake. American cakes are in general too sweet for me, whereas German cakes are perfectly sweet. So I'm 100% #teamGerman because they are so simillar to cakes in my country.

figgeln How many times have you eaten in the US, to be such an expert? I am a French trained chef. Food is my living. Recently I ate at the restaurant at the top of the Contemporary Hotel (California Grill), Victoria and Albert's at the Grand Floridian, and Daniel in New York City. I would put these 3 restaurants in the top 15 of the thousands of restaurants I have eaten at. There are also many fabulous restaurants in Las Vegas. Sadly, I can't think of one German restaurant in the top 50...or even top 100. The best place I ate at in Germany was at a little Grandmother's home in the late 1980s.

What is the difference between Streusel and Strudel? At my local bakery, apple strudel is put with the pies, not cakes; and the chief difference between those and what Stefan made is that the strudel is in a rectangular pan instead of a round one (and they call it Austrian).
S Black
S Black Vor 2 Monate
A Strudel is a filled roll. The dough is rolled or stretched to be very thin. And it's indeed from Austria but spread from there Streusel are really the crumbs on top of the cake. The are made from butter, sugar and flour. A typical Streusel cake has yeast dough on the bottom, then a layer of fruit and then the Streusel on top. A lot of Streusel cakes are rectangular and thin so that the crumbs make up a large part of the cake, but round works too. Google image search shows you many examples

I'd like to eat the German cake. I like fruit cakes very much specially those with apple. In my opinion colourful cakes look very fun but the colour isn't making any taste. That's probably why I like chocolate cake so much! That's another difference: in America is vanilla cake very common but in Germany light batter isn't usually vanilla, it's just the normal batter ingredients, there is no actual flavour in it.

Gustav Meyrink Vor 2 Monate
I make my Apfelkuchen with a yeast dough rather than baking powder and I would never ever use food dye. The good thing about making your own cakes is that one can avoid artificial colouring. That bizarre colour is seriously off putting and appetite ruining. I wouldn't even try the american cake. Sorry... Here in the UK they use a lot of icing which is basically just sugar and frankly disgustingly sweet. I make german-style fresh cream gateaux regularly and use whipped cream so it looks like the US cake but without that moldy colour. The cream is just barely sweetened, like a table spoon of sugar per half liter of cream.
Jane Foran
Jane Foran Vor 2 Monate
I don’t think Dana made a traditional American-style cake at all. The version she made is what you might find at a basic grocery store bakery for a young child. The artificial colors and sprinkles only appeal to children. It is much more common that homemade cakes are either two round layers with frosting in the middle and on the outside, or one square/rectangular layer with frosting only on the top. Frosting is usually either plain vanilla or chocolate.

Only difference between german and american cakes, is the food colouring. In germany, we use it too, but not that common, not 'classical'. Amerika uses coloring in nearly everything. U just compared two complete different things. America also have apple pie as we do have (...) and we do have the same cakes u have.

Vanilla cake? Really? That's what you picked, to represent our country? I'm from Ohio, and my mom's family (not just one branch, but every branch of it that we've traced) has lived in Ashland County Ohio for generations -- most of them since 1816 or earlier, and before that they were from Washington County, Pennsylvania. So my culinary traditions are about as American (and about as Midwestern) as you get. Quick survey of cakes in our most frequently used cookbook: Texas sheet cake (which is very much chocolate); deep dark chocolate cake; plum cake; cherry cake; peach cake; pear cake; banana cake; Louisa Rebman McCready's jam cake; harvest apple cake; pineapple angel-food cake; Jell-O cake; triple chocolate quick bread; brownies. Of course we have more cake recipes than that. Overall, about half of them feature some kind of fruit, and most of the rest involve chocolate in some capacity. I think we also have a caramel cake recipe kicking around someplace. The only time we ever make white or vanilla cake is for Jell-O cake. (White cake is also popular for weddings, but that's purely because the color white has very strong cultural significance for weddings: white dress, white table cloths, white cake, white frosting, white decorations, ...) Also, I associate sprinkles mainly with doughnuts (cake doughnuts particularly), and maybe cupcakes made for children's birthday parties. I don't know if I've ever previously seen sprinkles on a layer cake.

Mr Germanman you forgot the cinnamon. :'D there has to be some in the apple mixture and some in the crumbles. :) to me the biggest difference between the cakes in America and Germany is the dough. I love apple and fruit pie with crumbles but I prefere the American dough. To me the butter cream hasn't enough tasting except of sweetness (vanilla extract rates like too much like fabric stuff) . There is something missing
