Lillian's Breakfast Kuchen Recipe - Pretty As A Picture


By Sinea Pies


My mother-in-law, Lillian, was known for her excellent baking skills. Each creation was a work of art. And the top favorite of all the pastries she made? Her delicious and oh-so beautiful cinnamon walnut kuchen. Some would call it a Swedish Tea Ring.

Whatever the name, it is destined to go on your "favorites list" soon as you make it. I love serving her kuchen during the holidays and have even given them as gifts!
