One traditional German cake for Easter is the Easter lamb cake. To make this special cake you would need a special baking lamb form, and we found some on Amazon. It’s basically a cake similar to a pound cake, so you could vary it by adding add some cocoa and create a marble cake or some lemon or rum flavor as a variation. Find two recipes, one sweetened with honey, the other one with regular sugar. Happy Baking!

  1. Is this a German tradition? In Chicago, lamb cakes at Easter are everywhere. Other parts of the USA, nobody knew of this. Do you see this in Germany?

  2. Catheriine, my understanding is that it was originated by the polish people Like anything else ,a good thing,everyone else wants to join in on the bandwagon,even the Italians.
