  • About

Aargau is a northern Swiss canton on the German border, west of Zurich. The name means the district of the river Aar. Rübli is the Swiss-German diminutive of the Hochdeutsch word for root vegetable, Rübe. There are many other carrot cake recipes in the world, but this is the most famous and the most delicious. It is certainly one of Switzerland’s very few contributions to world cuisine.*
