Expert Tips: Kuchen, from German kitchens, is a fruit- or cheese-filled cake often served for breakfast, but it’s equally good served as a dessert. You can vary the Kuchen by using different flavors of yogurt each time you make it. Through the years, Washburn Crosby Company sponsored cooking schools in conjunction with women’s clubs and newspapers. Their home economists also provided cooking advice to home economics teachers and 4-H club leaders.
