🍓 Ingredients

1 package Vanilla sugar
250 grams Sugar
250 grams Butter
5 Eggs
1/4 liter Milk
500 grams Flour
1 package Baking powder
  Powdered sugar or chocolate coating
  Fat and breadcrumbs for the mold

🍽 Instructions

All ingredients MUST be at the same temperature (room temperature). It is best to remove all the ingredients from the refrigerator / cupboard about 1 hour before starting and have them ready.

Cream the butter with the sugar and vanilla sugar. Then add each egg separately and beat for about 1 minute at a time, this will make the cake very nice and fluffy.

Mix the baking powder with the flour and add it alternately with the milk to the butter-sugar-egg mixture and mix. Caution: do not add too much milk.

It must form a normal dough.

Also, do not beat the dough with the flour for too long.

This will keep the cake fluffy, but with a nice, fine crumb. Large pores after baking indicate that the dough has been beaten too long.

Then place the cake in a greased and with breadcrumbs sprinkled Guglhupf form and bake at 180 ° to 200 ° top/bottom heat for about 60 minutes.

After baking, remove the cake from the oven, let it rest in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn it out.

Immediately after turning out, dust with powdered sugar or cover with icing/chocolate. Variations:

– instead of 500 grams of flour, use 200 grams of flour, 200 grams of ground almonds and 200 grams of ground hazelnuts -&gt, this will make a delicious nut cake. – put 2/3 of the dough in the baking pan, mix 1/3 of the dough with cocoa (e.g. Nesquick – amount as you like) and a little bit more milk and spread it evenly on the ‘normal’ dough and then bake it -&gt, this will make a tasty marble cake – instead of 1/4 liter of milk use a little more than 1/4 liter of eggnog – cook a pudding (flavor doesn’t matter, just what you like) according to package directions, pour half of the batter into the pan, spread the pudding over the batter, then top with the other half of the batter and bake

There are no limits to other variations.

This is a wonderful basic dough for all kinds of cakes, just the way you like it.
