German Cake

This recipe is from my awesome friend Rosa, who I met through my aunt that lives in Barcelona, Spain! I kicked off my finals weeks with this recipe and I think it brought me good luck! It’s great with a big glass of milk, enjoy!


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 packet of yeast
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 1 shot of rum
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • bread crumbs
  • chocolate shavings


Mix the eggs and sugar well. Then add flour, yeast, vanilla sugar, rum, almonds, oil, and sparkling water.


Fill the sides of a bundt cake pan with butter and bread crumbs so the cake does not stick.


Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 min until dry when a toothpick is inserted. Once it is ready, take out of the bundt cake pan and cover the turned over hot cake immediately with icing so that it drips and add the chocolate shavings for decoration on the wet icing.
