Tasty Tuesday: Kuchen 

This cake-like German pastry – made with sweet dough and a filling of custard, fruit or nuts – was first introduced to the area in the 19th century and has been a favorite among locals ever since. In the spring of 2000, the South Dakota State Legislature even passed a bill declaring kuchen the official dessert of The Mount Rushmore State. Small town bakeries, especially in the eastern half of the state, commonly serve these tasty treats. You’ll also find an abundance of kuchen alongside bratwurst and fried potatoes at Schmeckfest in Freeman. -travelsouthdakota.com
