Danish Dream Cake ~ Drommekage fra Brovst

It's been a hectic week! My dad involved in a car accident last Friday. He was hit by a car when on his way to work .Luckily, nothing serious happened but both of his legs are swollen. NO major injury and I am glad he's in full recovery now. Have to thank hubby for driving 5 hours straight heading back to my hometown just to see my dad. ((hugs)) So, it's about time to relax and have a cup of coffee with some tasty baked goodies at home this weekend. I found this easy & divine cake after google for some time and can't resist without giving it a go.

(recipe adapted here)
Ingredients for sponge :
4 eggs
210gm  sugar
1 tspn  vanilla paste / essence

250gm  all purpose flour
3 tspn   baking powder

50gm  butter, melted
200ml  milk

Method :
(1) beat ingredients (A) till fluffy & pale then stir in ingredients (B) alternately with ingredients (C) till everything combined.
(2) pour batter to a 9x13" tray lined with greaseproof paper & bake at preheated oven 190'C for about 20-25 mins.
(3) prepare the top mixture while the cake is still in the oven.

Ingredients for coconut topping :
300gm  fresh young coconut, grated
250gm  brown sugar
70ml   milk
1 tspn  vanilla paste
125gm   butter, softened
(combine all ingredients to form soft paste)

(4) spread the coconut mixture to the top of the cake once it's ready, straight from the oven.
(5) then place it back to the oven and bake for another 10 mins at 220'C.
(6) once it's done, cooled & keep refrigerated overnight before slicing.

OLALA.... the cake turned out great. Such irresistible aroma. I found some blogger heat the coconut topping to thicken the mixture before spreading it onto the cake. That's a great idea as well. I'll have to try that the next time.

The cake is really moist & smooth. Not to mention about the topping.....absolutely addictive! This cake is best to keep refrigerated before serving. Hope you guys will love it too! Happy weekend.

Thank heavens your father wasn't too bad, Kristy. It's been pretty crazy here too. I was in taking care of my daughter in Idaho for 6 weeks. I even posted about it here.

You delicate cake of goodness looks absolutely delightful. I am definitely going to save it for the future.

Thank you so much for sharing and Thank you for asking about the Picnic Game. I haven't decided what to do about it yet. I sure do miss it! Let me think about it and I will let you know. You're very sweet to think of me:) Louise

I love this recipe ! Reminds me of you making soap at home, Mom.
And it's fun to see photos of your house there and see
Dad in that comfy chair we sat in when we visited,
attempting to use the slow internet :)

I can't wait to hear how the soap turned out in terms
of using it. Does it smell different since it is made with
animal fat? Any other differences from vegetable-based soap?

Love you!
