Baumkuchen

Germany
Stacked rings of sponge cake are layered with apricot jam and marzipan, baked before an open fire, and covered with vanilla glaze. Hailed as the "Cake of Kings and the King of Cakes" by the King of Germany more than three centuries ago, this beloved "tree cake" is still a traditional crowd pleaser.

    This is quite different, dry, but not bad dry. Great with coffee, smaller than I thought, but big around. Good price on sale!

              Comments about Baumkuchen:

              Baumkuchen has been very popular in Japan, where I was born, and my all-time favorite. However, I have never found this fantastic pastry anywhere in the US, not even in Germany. Therefore, I needed to bring back from Tokyo whenever I had chance to visit there. Very happy to find it at Dean and Deluca. I enjoyed every mouthful of it.

              Comments about Baumkuchen:

              [...]Found the overall texture somewhat dry and crumbly, compared to the Japanese-made baumkuchens which are more moist and subtle in flavor. But this large-sized unusually shaped cake is a nice holiday statement on the table.

                  I ordered a dozen of these cakes for my husband's unit in Iraq two years ago and they were a huge hit! They made the trip easily due to the packaging.
