Baumkuchen from Saxony-Anhalt

Baumkuchen. 'Tree cake' complete with tree rings.

A cake that looks like a tree. Original Salzwedel baumkuchen (tree cake) is undoubtedly the Altmark region's most famous speciality. This delicacy has been baked for over 200 years. The cake is not cut into wedges like a torte, but served in small crescent-shaped slices. That way you can clearly see the 'tree rings' inside.
