"Disabled And Proud!" Both me and my only child are SSA Registered-Certified Disabled PWDs. I was born in the state of California, in the county of Santa Clara, in the city of San José. ***In every woman there is a Queen. Speak to the Queen and the Queen will answer. - Norwegian Proverb***
That is a dish made in our family as well. Some people here have said they make Koocan or similar in North Dakota. I'm from Saskatchewan (Canadian friends to the North :-)) and we call it Koogah (Kuga) I don't know the spelling. I'll ask around and see if I can get a recpie.
Yep, it's all in the dialect. I think it's Kuchen, too, just pronounced differently. Did the kuchen have fruit on it? Was the dough with yeast or some other leavening? I make one that's with baking soda (natron), and fruit of the season on top.
Pioneer is a brand of sugar, just like you guessed.
My mother in law makes kuga, it is a round flat bread sort of thing with a custardy stuff in the middle. She is from North Dakota for what it is worth. :)
