German Donauwelle

>> Monday, April 27, 2009

German cakes r world wide popular. Donauwelle cake is one among their popular cake, which means Donau- Some river name & welle - waves. I named it as wave cake, bcoz the chocolate glaze toppings will be decorated like a waves & of course, it will become a little mess while cutting them.
It taste great with vanilla pudding as one of the layer & chocolate over the top. I assure u, ur kids will just love this :)

Ingredients :

For the cake :

  1. All purpose flour - 500 gms
  2. Butter - 250 gms
  3. Sugar - 300 gms
  4. Eggs - 4 nos
  5. Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  6. Baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
  7. 1 glass of Sour cherries (I use canned stuff)
  8. Cocoa powder - 1 tsp

Vanilla cream :

  1. Vanilla pudding - 2 1/2 packet
  2. Butter - 125 gms
  3. Sugar - 8 tbsp
  4. Milk (or) soya milk - 1 litre

Chocolate glaze :

  1. 250 gms semi sweet chocolate
  2. 30 gms butter
  3. 200 gms whipped cream (optional)

Directions to bake :

Baking a cake :

# Heat oven to 200 C & grease the 26 cm baking pan with a parchment paper.

# Sieve the flour, baking powder & set aside.

# Cream the butter, vanilla essence & sugar till light & gradually add the egg & beat until fluffy.

# Add the flour mixture & mix well.

# Divide the batter into two equal parts. Add cocoa powder to half part of the cake batter.

# First spread the white batter evenly in the baking pan. Next, top them with the chocoate batter evenly.

# Insert the drained cherries on top & push them halfway into the cake batter.

# Bake them for 20 to 25 min or until a toothpick inserted in the middle & comes out clean.

Cool the bake.


For the vanilla cream :

# Combine all the ingredients except butter & bring it to boil. Let cool & finally add the butter & whisk till nicely combined.

(Simple follow the instructions given in the pudding packet)

For the chocolate glaze :

# Melt the chocolate along with the butter. Once cool add the whipped cream.

Assembling the cake :

# Layer the cake as the bottom part.

# Top the vanilla pudding over them as the second layer.

# Finally, spread the chocolate glaze on the top & using the fork, draw some waves very carefully without mixing the chocolate with the pudding layer.

TIPS :

  1. Cake batter will be very thick. I prefer using pipping bags to spread them in the baking pans.

  2. Before spreading the chocolate glaze over the pudding layer. Refrigerate the cake, so that pudding will be set.

  3. Cool the chocolate glaze & then pour them over the pudding layer. If u r not confident in drawing waves, u can leave it.

Happy baking.
