Recipe for Danish Dream Cake
Use a pan which is 25 cm / 10 inches. Make sure to weigh the ingredients for the best result. Use room temperature ingredients.
  • 4 eggs
  • 300 gram of white sugar (1⅓ cups)
  • 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped
  • 2 tbsp. baking powder
  • 250 gram of all-purpose flour (2 cups)
  • 200 ml milk (6.8 oz. or 0.85 cup)
  • 85 gram melted butter (3/8 cup)
  • Butter for greasing
  1. Preheat oven to 185°C. / 365° F
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy - beat for approx. 10 min
  3. Add the vanilla beans
  4. In a small saucepan, combine milk with butter and heat until the butter melts. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it to cool off.
  5. Sieve the flour and baking powder into another bowl. Stir it together with a spoon.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the egg/sugar mix alternating with the milk and butter. Mix each addition just until incorporated.
  7. Then, butter a baking pan AND line it with parchment paper.
  8. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan
  9. Shake the pan back and forth a couple of times to even out the batter.
  10. Bake the cake until golden brown - a toothpick should come out clean - approx. 40-50 min. (depending on the size of the cake and your oven)
  11. Take out of the oven and leave it in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
