Backe backe Kuchen

Lyrics - German

(German folk song)

Backe, backe Kuchen,
Der Bäcker hat gerufen!
Wer will gute Kuchen backen,
Der muss haben sieben Sachen:
Eier und Schmalz,
Butter und Salz,
Milch und Mehl,
Safran macht den Kuchen gehl (gelb),
Schieb in den Ofen ‘rein.

English Translation - Bake, bake a cake

Bake, bake a cake
The baker has called!
He who wants to bake good cakes
Must have seven things:
Eggs and lard,
Butter and salt,
Milk and flour,
Saffron makes the cake yellow!
Shove it into the oven.


Similar to Pat-a-Cake, this song can be clapped on the steady beat.
