Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I've made this several times now and it's been a huge hit with myself and my husband. While a little involved to make, it works great as a hearty side dish to brats or any smoked meat.

Everyone in my family loved this. I will definitely make it again.

Better than I expected! Used a 14 oz package of Dole cole slaw cabbage mix (wasn't sure what size head of cabbage to get), a Granny Smith apple, and a grainy dijon mustard. It took longer than the 15 minutes mentioned on the video, but it was well worth it. Can't think of anything I'd change. Served with leftover pork tenderloin medallions and steamed broccoli.

I made this tonight and it was excellent! The only change I made was I shredded the apple because my husband doesn't like the texture of cooked apple. I will be making this again.

on this recipe I really wish that in the video you would show how you made this dish. it does sound good.

Saw this on TV today...made it for supper. Really good, easy, will make again!

Soon as I get a head.

German Wave Cake

Donauwellen is a classic German dessert that's often called the "German Wave Cake." That's because the layers in this cake look like the waves of the Danube river. Our version starts off with a box of cake mix, to make it really easy, and features all of the classic flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, cherries, and pudding.
