Kölln Cakes Review
I was visiting my German relatives recently and was given a present of some german biscuits.
They came in all shapes and sizes. Some covered in dark or white chocolate and some not.
Unfortunately, upon trying several of them in turn, I realised that all german biscuits are, infact, gingerbread.
This is a matter of some concern to me as, for example, british bisucuits may be shortbread or digestive or any number of varieties.
I would be very interested to find out if Germany has a more complex taxonomy of biscuits than a single, large set called 'Gingerbread'?
I can't ask my relatives directly lest they take offense at my ingratitude to their sincere generosity.
|Nicey replies: Well yes a great many traditional German biscuits are essentially Gingerbread and we would hope so from the country that brought us Hanzel and Gretel. However, over the years we've had all sorts of things out of Germany that weren't Ginger bread. Follow this magic link into our review archive and scroll down to Germany.|
