This German marble bundt cake is a mix of chocolate and egg liquor flavors.
As I said in my last post, Germans are big fans of egg liquor at Christmas and Easter. Since we are leaving on a five-week vacation soon, to get ahead, I have been writing and cooking recipes like a madwoman (or mad hausfrau).
Once I had made the egg liquor, which is surprisingly easy to do, it was more efficient to use the result to make something else instead of just drinking it all myself.
That's where this cake comes in. Baked goods with egg liquor (eierlikor) are just as popular in Germany at Christmas and Easter as the drink version. I love this swirling of two great flavors in one cake.
To create the marbling effect. I poured one cake layer flavor on top of the other and simply twirled a fork through the batter.
The glaze was also incredibly easy to do. I simply melted semi-sweet chocolate and brushed it on the cake. It had a great crunchy effect once it dried.
This cake is a great addition to any Easter holiday table. For the full recipe and instructions, hop on over to my German Food Page at about.com.
