Danish Flag Cake Recipe – Dannebrogskage

The Danish Constitution Day is on June 5th this year.  So we thought it would be fun to make a two layer Danish Flag Cake with custard, raspberries and plenty of whipped cream in celebration.  Dannebrog is the name of the Danish flag and it is the oldest in the world.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 6 oz or 1 1/2 stick butter
  • 4 eggs – seperated, egg whites beaten stiff
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • custard
  • raspberries
  • whipped cream
  • frosting
Beat butter and sugar, add 4 egg yolks. Add milk w/vanilla extract. Add flour mixed with baking powder. Beat 4 egg whites stiff and add it to the mixture. Bake in pan greased with butter and flour at 425F for approx. 15 min.

Cut cake in half, add custard between the two layers. Add frosting to top layer and place raspberries to form flag with whipped cream forming a cross.

  Enjoy a slice of cake with a cup of coffee.
