A great cake recipe for any occasion:

Helmut Gote hasn’t even eaten it in its homeland yet, but because he found the “funny recipe” in an old cookbook, he already tried the Thuringian Bratwurst Cake for us. It is actually a pie – the fried sausages, seasoned with marjoram, lie on salty shortcrust pastry on a dough similar to Semmeknoedel, on top of which there is another layer of shortcrust pastry. Serve with a leaf salad or vegetables that go with the sausage – our cook likes the winter dish, which is equally good for kids, even cooled down – so you could re-cook it into the summer!!!! Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt, dice the cold butter. Work both with the dough hooks of the mixer until you have crumble-like pieces. Now add the egg and the water and quickly knead a smooth dough. Wrap this shortcrust dough in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for an hour.

For the filling, fry the sausage briefly on both sides, remove from the frying pan and cool. Cut the rolls into small cubes. Fry the finely chopped onion and the garlic briefly in the frying fat, add the bread cubes and fry briefly until they have absorbed the fat, then transfer to a suitable bowl, season with nutmeg, salt, pepper and lemon zest and sprinkle with marjoram. Mix the milk with the two eggs and pour over the rolls. After five minutes
