German Zuckerkuchen

ZuckerkuchenOf course I have to live up to my name and give away my first and best secret –  Zuckerkuchen.

Have you ever tasted this German traditional cake? No, then it’s time to change that…

Mix 375g Flour with 1 packet of dry yeast and mix with 1/8 l milk, 1 egg, 50 g sugar, a pinch of salt and 5ml vanilla extract. Work into a ball and leave to rise for about an hour.

Grease a baking tray and spread the dough evenly.

Measure 150 g butter and 150 g sugar. First cut the butter in small pieces and place all over the dough, then sprinkle the sugar on top.

Bake in the oven at about 200 C for about 15 to 20 minutes.

My grandmotherused to bake this cake whenever she had unexpected visitors as it doesn’t require any fancy ingredients to shop for. Enjoy!
