CHERRY KUCHEN BARS
Kuchen is not exactly a cake nor a pastry, it is something in between. In German bakeries, you often see square pastries for sale. These come from large sheet cakes [Blechkuchen] and the varieties are endless. I had different kuchens before, my favourite coffee shop The Crazy and the German sells peach and blueberry kuchens with crumb crust toppings.

1-3/4 cups sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups + 1-1/2 cups flour
