Greenland - Chef's Dream Cake


Time for another pud and this time it's this cake from Greenland. I've no idea why this cake is called a Chef's dream cake so I can only surmise it's because it's so easy to make.


Chef's Dream Cake

Country: Greenland
Course: Dessert

  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar

 Ingredients:

    2 cups flour
    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    1 1/2 cup sugar
    3 eggs
    3 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    1 cup milk

For the topping:

    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 1/8 cup coconut
    1 1/8 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup milk



 Cream the eggs and sugar together. I felt confused about this for the rest of the recipe since you usually cream sugar and butter to make a cake.


 Sift in the flour and baking powder. Add the vanilla essence too at this point.


Warm the butter and milk together until the butter is melted. Then add it to the batter.


 Line a cake pan with baking paper and pour the batter into it. Bake at 200C for 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when poked into the cake.


 Meanwhile you can make the topping. Warm up even more butter and milk until the butter is melted. then add the brown sugar and coconut. Mix together well.



When the cake is done, spread the coconut mixture on the top of the cake and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes on 220C.



 This recipe makes a pretty delicious cake. It's really moist and dense with a crunchy sweet topping. JD, Leigh, Erin & I all enjoyed several pieces and were sorry when it was gone. I really liked how the cake wasn't too sweet and sickly. The kids said they loved the topping best but I thought the cake was the best part. It reminded me of cake my Nana used to make, so moist that you didn't need  a cream filling to stop it being dry. Anyway, great cake. We'll likely have it again, maybe with different toppings to experiment.

Thanks, Greenland. :)
