there are still a few days until christmas... So I'd like to share my favorite christmas cake with you. The cake is called "Heidesandkuchen". I couldn't find a translation but I think that doesn't bother anyway.
|Sorry, the cake doesn't become as beautiful as the pictures you are always see at the internet but it tastes nevertheless yummy - This is real life!|
Maybe you can bake it the whole year but I like it most around Christmas, because I think with the filling it's christmassy .
Here's the receipe if you like to bake it yourself:
|250 g||plum jam|
|2 tbs||rolled oats|
|1 ts||grated lemon zest|
|3 ts||baking powder|
|1/2 ts||cinnamon (optional)|
|1 pak||vanilla sugar|
Tanning the butter and set aside until cool and creamy.
|Mix Jam, oatmeal and lemon zest and set aside.|
Create a sponge from all the other ingredients. Stir in the cooled butter.
Divide dough into 3 parts. Fill alternating with the jam mixture into the form.
Bake at 160°C for 50-60 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes then overthrow the cake.
When the cake has cooled, cover the cake with the glaze.
