Berry Cake

This is a recipe for the tallest cake I’ve ever baked. I made it for my grandparents at their 50th wedding anniversary. To please as many guests as possible I picked a combination of vanilla and cocoa sponge, filled with two frostings with berries. So, this recipe will do for a cake with about 20 slices (diameter is 26 cm). But you can make a smaller cake, so you take only the half of the quantity of listed ingredients.   Ingredients Vanilla sponge 5 eggs 150 g sugar 200 g flour 15 g baking powder 10 g vanilla sugar 0,5 […]

The Checkerboard Cake

A cake for all chess lovers! Not only there’s a checkerboard on top, but it’s also a surprise when you cut into the cake. I won’t lie, the procedure is long and demanding, it took me 5 hours. But I’m sure you can do it if you strictly follow the instructions. Nevertheless, the cake is made of vanilla sponge, cocoa sponge, and chocolate buttercream. I used a round baking tray with 22 cm diameter. You can also use the bigger or smaller baking tray, but then you have to adjust the quantity of ingredients or the cake will be shorter […]

Apple Crumble Strudel

Apple strudel – a typical fall dessert. But I also love a nice apple crumble cake. So I got the idea to combine both desserts. The procedure is very simple, especially if you buy filo pastry for strudel. Sometimes I do that because I’m a little lazy or I just can’t make the same pastry my grandma does. With bought pastry sheets, the procedure takes about 45 minutes, and the baking time is 30 minutes.   Ingredients (for 16 pieces – 4 strudels) 4 sheets of filo pastry 30 g butter 8 apples 150 g flour 150 g sugar 90 […]
