Two pawns down, three officers in play, all lines open, nothing left to do but attack.

to clear e6 to get to f7
10... c6 11. O-O Qd8c7 12. Bc4xe6
This felt like I had no choice. All the officers are in place and there is nothing painless left to do.
! This one scared me. But Blackmar-Diemer is about attacking, so...

13... Qc7xf7 14. Qf3g3 Bf8e7 15. Be3d4 Be7d6 16. Bd4xe5
Opens g6 for the knight, allows pinning an undefended officer at e5, clears the route to the black king, keeps up the pressure so black can't bring its material edge to play.
16... Bd6xe5 17. Rd1e1 Qf7c7 18. Qg3g6 Ke8f8
