It is that time of the month again when Greta and I post about our latest challenge.
Greta messaged me and suggested we bake cakes with alcohol. The first (and only) British cake I could think of with alcohol in was Christmas cake! Head over to Made by Greta to see what I decided to challenge Greta to make!
Greta’s suggestion for me this month was an egg liquor cake. I must admit I have only tried egg liquor once. Just after we moved to Germany we got invited to our neighbours’ house for dinner. They were really shocked that we had never tried egg liquor before, instantly a large homemade bottle of the stuff appeared on the table. I don’t really remember much about it other than it was quite thick and really REALLY sweet!
The recipe Greta sent over was surprisingly simple. As the cake is baked in a baking tray it is a really thin cake but is still soft and quite moist. The sponge mix includes egg liquor and rum so tastes quite boozy! The topping is whipped cream drizzled with egg liquor! The really light topping complimented the cake well. Buttercream or frosting would definitely be too heavy!
Thanks for the recipe Greta we really enjoyed it!
Make sure you head over to Greta’s blog to check out her bake!
If you have any suggestions for what you would like us to bake we would love to hear about them!
