About the project

The Danube-Networkers organization in Ulm started a new project in September 2015. The new project is called “Tastes of Danube: Bread, Wine, Herbs”
and welcomes civil society organizations, schools, single persons and groups in Germany and all other Danube countries as active participants.

Transnational activities will be designed and carried out circling around bread, wine and herbs as traditional groceries and luxury foods which are equally
common in all countries along the Danube river. The different activities will offer a chance to not only get knowledge about the use and meaning of these
foods nowadays, but to research about their social and cultural history throughout the countries.

In “Tastes of Danube” bread, wine and herbs are more than food: They are tokens of cultural community or separation, witnesses of both the present
way of life and history. The focus is on team activity, to exchange experience and to meet – in real life as in the internet.

Easter Lamb

Easter Lamb
(from Sebastian)

1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, room temp
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cream butter in a large bowl, add dry ingredients (flour through salt); beat 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Add sour cream, milk, egg and vanilla, beat 2 more minutes. Turn batter into bottom (face) of well greased and floured mold. Insert wooden toothpicks lengthwise into ears and neck for support. Grease and lightly flour top half of mold and gently place on top of batter. Make sure mold locks; tie with a string to make sure mold doesn’t separate as cake rises while it bakes.

Bake on a cookie sheet for 55 minutes or until a toothpick placed in steam vent comes out clean. Cool cake in mold for 15 minutes, then carefully remove the top half of mold and let cool in the bottom mold for 5 more minutes. Remove from mold and let cake cool on is side on a rack until completely cool - do not stand up until then.
