Birthday Cake





..for my best friend! We met on the 1st day of Kindergarten and have been going strong ever since :-) All the best for you, and here's to many more birthdays to come.


For her special day I tried out a new recipe from a great German baking magazine. This cake has got a lovely orange and Amaretto flavour to it and can be filled with whatever you fancy. The recipe suggested a mocha filling but as she isn't a big fan of all things coffee flavoured, I grabbed the Baileys bottle instead. An orange mousse would work well too I think.








For the cake (without filling) you need:


  • 4 egg whites
  • pinch of salt

- Whisk until stiff



  • app. 4 tbsp warm water
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 120g sugar
  • zest of 1 organic orange


- Add the water to the egg yolks and beat till fluffy, adding the sugar as you go

  along. Keep beating until the mix turns light and a little thicker.

  Add the orange zest.




  • 75g flour
  • 40g cocoa powder


- Mix together.


  • Juice of 1 organic orange
  • 2 - 3 tbsp Amaretto


- Mix together



Gently layer the egg whites onto the egg yolk mix, sieve flour & cocoa powder on top.

Carefully fold in the egg yolks.


Baking: 180 °C app. 25 Min. (In a round greased cake tin, Ø 18-20 cm)


Leave your cake to cool before cutting into 2 layers. Trickle the Amaretto-orange mix onto the

layers to keep them moist.


Add a filling of your choice. Put the kettle on and ring your friends :-)

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
