Fritz Hahn: The Baumkuchen Family

With annotations!

Fritz Hahn of Heidelberg is the one published Baumkuchen historian, to the best of my knowlege. He published a couple of treatises on the evolution of rotisserie cakes; I don't agree with everything in them, but I want to share them here. Here's my translation and commentary for his article Die Familie der Baumkuchen, originally published simultaneously in Die Konditorei and Der Konditormeister, July 1964.
