Blueberry Kuchen


Gloria at Canela Kitchen posted this delicious looking dessert recently and
I knew I wanted to try it with all the blueberries that are plentiful right now.
And I'd never heard of a German Kuchen before, much less tasted one.

It looks like cheesecake but tastes more like a firm custard with a cookie crust.  Very easy to make and so pretty, too!

And did you notice the lovely plate?  Believe it or not, it was discarded to the
trash at an auction.  Of course, I had to bring it home with me! :)


Here it is, written in US equivalents ~

Blueberry Kuchen

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup plain yogurt
5 T soft butter
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 c flour
1 t baking powder
3 T milk
8 oz. fresh blueberries

Whisk condensed milk and yogurt together and chill.
Meanwhile,  preheat oven to 350. 
Cream butter and sugar in mixer. Add egg.
Then add flour and baking powder, alternating with the milk.
Press this dough into a greased 9" spring form pan,
covering the bottom and up the sides.
Bake for 10 minutes.

Layer fresh blueberries over baked crust and pour the
condensed milk/yogurt filling over the blueberries.
Return to oven and bake 25 minutes or until firm and no
longer sticky to touch.  Mine took 45 minutes, so be prepared
to watch and adjust the time if needed.

Cool and then chill in refrigerator.

Yum.  Thank you, Gloria!

    You're right, it does look delicious as well as easy to make and oh so worth it.

  6. It said "blueberry" so I had to look. Sounds very yummy, but you are right, it looks more like cheesecake to me than kuchen. I need to find some wonderful gluten-free blueberry recipes. I have already thrown them into pancakes and fruit salad. Now I need to find a gluten-free cobbler or coffee cake.

    Nice little plate. I think working at an auction would be fun. I'd probably be a sucker for old, discarded family photos.

    1. I'm sure you could find some gluten free recipes...there are cooking blogs just for gluten free...I've seen several!

      I have only brought home one discarded family photo and I just love it. It's hanging in the hallway. I feel like I need to save things from the garbage truck! haha...It's my calling! lol...

    2. Martha instead of using plain flour you might use rice flour to the dough, I use to bake too:)

      Delete
    3. I have several good gluten free recipes, just need to look at them again. Gloria, I wish it were as simple as just switching one flour for another.

      Delete
    4. Thats OK Martha only I sadi because I have a friend of mine that have to eat gluten free too,x

      Delete
    5. I think this recipe would be easy to change to gluten free...it would only be the crust, right? and if you had a crust recipe...even for gluten free pie crust, it would work fine, don't you think, Gloria? It would still be delicious!

      Delete
    6. Crunched up gluten free cookies make good crusts.

      Delete
    7. that's a good idea...and this crust reminded me of a sugar cookie!

      Delete
    8. Yes Betsy is a simple crust, the cream and bluberries I think make the kuchen delicious.

      Delete
    9. yes...so true. I think the main difference between the german and the american here is that we would make a graham cracker or pastry crust and this with the egg made it like a cookie!

      And I liked how neat and clean it cut into slices! It served up so nice!

      but you could eat the berries so blue!

  13. Oh that surely is a nice summer dessert. And you know I would love that lacy plate. Once in a while I find a pretty one like that at the Thrift Store. I'm in the mood for scones too...and with all the blueberries...maybe I should make both.

    1. scones sound wonderful! And do you know I've never made them? But my buttermilk biscuits look so similar to the recipes that I think they probably are more like scones than biscuits. haha. If you bake, make sure and show us!

  14. Oh Yum! If it has blueberries and looks like cheesecake and is similar to custard it can't help but be delicious! Love the plate too!

  18. That does look so good and I really do like blueberries. My hubby eats lunch at a German Deli and he sometimes brings home little spice packages that have all the directions written in German and so I just have to guess what to do with it. If I am lucky it will sometimes have pictures and that does help a lot. For Christmas my hubby orders Stollen and we freeze it to have for a few months after. I will have to see if they have Kuchen too, but hopefully I will have tried this recipe before then. It does look easy.

    And that plate is gorgeous, such a treasure.

    God bless.
