Visit Hawaii Island: Baumkuchen Farm

A friend once asked me about the Baumkuchen Farm on the Big Island, and I had no idea what he was talking about until I saw another friend's Instagram stories.

Baumkuchen originated in Germany, and is a "tree cake," as it resembles the rings of a tree stump.

Baumkuchen Farm offers tours and even Baumstriezel Baking, and on certain days you can watch the Baumkuchen cakes being baked.  We stopped by simply to buy the cakes (they are also offered at select Farmers Markets and shops throughout the state). 

When we visited, they were offering four types of flavors - Macadamia Nut, Mango, Hawaiian Coffee, and Pineapple, and we even got to sample them!

The Baumkuchen is also very popular in Japan, where it is a lot softer than the traditional German cake.  The Baumkuchen made at the Baumkuchen Farm on the Big Island is more Japanese-style - it is very soft and light, and the flavor is also very subtle. 

It is a delightful cake and makes great omiyage!
