Remscheid, Germany - 25th February 2010

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
after a really short journey I arrived in Germany today. When my host helped me to climb out of my envelope I was welcomed by four other ToyVoyagers. They are Cilly, Ragamuffin, Henry The Adventure Hound and BineHH.

I had a look out of the kitchen window to take a look outside. What a pity! The sun isn't shining.

My host Katja told me that they had a lot of snow during the last two months and that it is melting away now. Katja decided to bake a cake and have a coffee before.

Baking a cake is always a good idea  :D  Soon we gathered all the ingredients which we needed for the cake, a cake with curd-filling and tangerines. That sound really good.

For the dough we need margarine, sugar, eggs and wheat flour with some baking powder. The filling is made of curd, eggs, sugar, a little bit oil and milk and vanilla sugar, and of course canned tangerines.

First we made the dough ...

... and put it into the baking pan.

For the filling we had to mix curd, egg yolk, sugar, vanilla sugar, oil, milk and finally beaten egg whites.

The tangerines were put on top of the filling.

The cake had to bake than for about 50 minutes. It was almost ready than.

Finally the cake was covered with something funny which is called "Tortenguss" in Germany. This is a white powder which has to be mixed with some sugar and than water or fruit juice. We mixed it with sugar and the tangerine juice from the can. Than this mixture had to boil up and than cool down for a minute or two. This funny guck was spread over the cake to make it look better and to prevent the tangerines from running dry on the cake surface.

Than we enjoyed the cake. It is really delicious and refreshing.

Bye for now
Wolle
