Baumkuchen cake with Pineapples.

Hawaiian Ingredients & Traditional German Baking.

Made on the Big Island of Hawaii by Baumkuchenfarm.



Baumkuchenfarm has developed a Pineapple Baumkuchen with some small chewy pineapple chunks and a sweet pineapple flavor. This cake has about 12 cm / 5 inches diameter and 20 layers of delicious soft cake.

The Pineapple is the typical Hawai’ian fruit known all over the world – it was introduced through the creation of canned pineapple.

Baumkuchen (in German: Baum = tree, Kuchen = cake) is a cake/bread baked on a stick. Layer after layer is placed on the stick and baked over an open fire. At nearly 570 F, the outside of the cake turns brown and forms the “annual rings” of the Baumkuchen. All the time, the baker must control and supervise the baking. If the cake is baked too long (just a few seconds), it will burn, but if it is too moist, the cake may fall off the stick on which it is baked.

The whole process is very time consuming and elaborate, an art of baking. That is why Baumkuchen is also called the “King of Cakes” and is included in the logo of the German Confectioners’ Guild.

Another reason why it is called the “King of Cakes” is that German royalty came to know and love Baumkuchen around 1850. King Frederick William IV of Prussia tried the Baumkuchen in 1843 and was so delighted that he took the rest of the cake with him to Berlin. About 20 years later, in 1865, King William the First, having tasted Baumkuchen, had Baumkuchen delivered regularly to his court in Berlin. Since then, Baumkuchen became popular in the aristocratic society and from there all over the world. 

Today, Baumkuchen is one of Japan’s most popular snacks.

Baumkuchenfarm is now bringing their new delicious and soft Hawaiian Baumkuchen to the US and the world.
