A true Swiss Baumkuchen is almost impossible to make at home. It requires a rotating spit, and almost a gallon of batter, and loads of time. This is a smaller version, although it too takes time. The results taste a little like a Kit-Kat bar. The many layers will remind you of the famous Dobostorte.

Aargau Carrot Cake

Rating: 4.14 stars
Canton Aargau is composed of Switzerland's most fertile farmlands, celebrated for fruit, vegetables and the famous Carrot Cake. Moist, delicious and light, it contains no added fat besides what's naturally contained in the eggs.

This is a typical Swiss recipe. You can buy the spitzbuben in any bakery here in Switzerland.

I discovered this Swiss Sunday bread when I was visiting friends in Switzerland. One of these friends is a pastry chef! The measurements given to me were metric, so I had to convert them. This makes a beautiful loaf and is super easy to make!

Swiss Steak Quick and Easy

Rating: 4.4 stars
My mother has been making this Swiss steak for years. It is wonderful, and can be made either on the stove top or -- when you don't have a lot of time but want a hearty meal ready when you come home -- in the crock pot. Serve over a bed of egg noodles or rice with a hunk of thick crusty bread.

This is a simple Swiss side dish. Do not forget to cook the potatoes at least a day beforehand. Do not stir the Roesti because it will be prevented from forming its crust. Add finely chopped, lean bacon, sliced onions, or thinly sliced cheese for other variations.

These are sweet Swiss cookies. We usually make them for Weihnachten (Christmas Eve) and top them with sprinkles but they are appropriate year-round.

Al's Baked Swiss Steak

Rating: 4.73 stars
This is a variation on another recipe, which is great as is, but I couldn't make Swiss steak without green peppers or garlic. I also season the meat instead of the flour; it gets a more intense taste that way.

Cheese Fondue

I've been making this fondue since the early 70's. Always so good!

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak and Onion

Rating: 4.24 stars
Delicious and easy Swiss steak recipe that will have you out of the kitchen in under 20 minutes. I love to pair this with egg noodles or rice, being sure to get a good spoonful of sauce along with the steak. Feel free to add celery, green pepper, carrots, or your favorite vegetable. My husband isn't a fan of celery or green pepper, so I keep my Swiss steak simple.
