German cooking at it’s finest! I grew up with very German grandparents. Some of these recipes are adapted from my grandma Miller and my father Jerry Miller! Love my pops! He makes the best German potato salad ever!

I love my Dad and our noses!

Many of the traditional German recipes were originally made with venison! Got a love it!

Hope you enjoy my favorite recipe for fall spice cake!

German Spice Cake
The frosting is amazing!

The frosting is so creamy and smooth. It’s basically a seven minute frosting we adapted with brown sugar instead of white sugar. Last year my dad and I worked together on testing out new ways to get the frosting extra fluffy. The spice cake is mild and has just the right combination of flavors that really compliment the frosting. It’s all about the frosting on this cake!

Grandpa’s Birthday Spice Cake

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I prefer fresh grated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup butter milk or whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar

Directions

  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour two 9-inch round cake pans. Whisk dry ingredients and spices in a large bowl. Mix milk, eggs, oil and vanilla extract in a separate bowl.
  2. Beat softened butter into dry ingredients, first on low, then medium, until mixture forms pebble-sized pieces. Add about 1/3 of the milk mixture and beat on low until smooth. Add remaining milk mixture in two stages; beat on medium speed until batter is just smooth. Add the sugar; beat until just incorporated. Pour batter into cake pans.
  3. Bake until a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the cake’s center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Set pans on a wire rack; let cool for 5 minutes. Turn cakes onto rack. Let cool.

Sea Foam Frosting

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

1.      In the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer set over a saucepan of simmering water, combine sugar, corn syrup, cream of tartar, 1/4 cup water, and egg whites. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, about 2 minutes.

Attach bowl to a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat mixture on high speed until glossy and voluminous, about 5 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Use immediately

We hope to hear from you soon!
