German Buttermilk Sugar Cake

German Buttermilk Sugar Cake

This German Buttermilk Sugar Cake is very much on the sweet side as it is using sugar and a special one called “Kandis” suga, a rock sugar that comes in coarse pieces. This kandis sugar, when heated, changes the color to brown which which gives it a caramel taste. Using this sugar will add a caramel taste to the cake. Can also be used in tea, grog or mulled wine. Happy Baking!
