Everywhere in the cafés or restaurants or at a bakery you will see a cake called “Eierschecke” a egg custard cake. But how do you do it?
We were invited and could watch a baker do it:
For the different layers you need different ingrediences. Here they are nicely sorted.
For the bottom you need flour, sugar, baking soda and liquid butter.
Powder a baking dish with flour.
Put the dough on the bottom of the baking form and spread it in a thin layer. Put it up a little bit at the edge.
For the curd cheese layer you need to mix curd cheese, custard powder, sugar and eggs.
Spread it afterwards onto the bottom.
For the next layer stirr custard powder and sugar with milk.
Heat this mixture in a pot.
Add butter and mix it all.
Separate the eggs.
Beat the egg whites until they are stiff.
Put the egg yolks to the mixsture and stirr until it is goopy.
Carefully add the stiff eggwhites.
Put the mixture onto the curd cheese layer.
Bake for about one hour.
Let it cool down in the oven.
Separate the cake from the edge of the form and cut it into pieces.
Serve it on a plate.
The receipt is from an old cook book and has been slightly adapted.
Have you ever tried it? Do you like it with or without raisins?
Thanks to “Eleven Kaffebar” for inviting us.
