Vanilla Raspberry Sheet Cake
- 150g butter
- 150g sugar
- 1 pck. vanilla sugar
- 50g flour
- 4 yolks
- 1 strich. tsp. baking powder
- 150g grated nuts
- 4 egg whites
- 1 pinch of salt
- 250g raspberry jam
- 250g powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1-2 tablespoons warm water
Preheat the oven to 170°C top/bottom heat.
Cream the butter and gradually add the sugar, vanilla sugar and egg yolks until everything has become a fluffy mass.
Mix the flour, nuts and baking powder.
Beat the egg whites until fluffy.
Fold the beaten egg whites and the flour mixture alternately into the butter mixture by hand with a whisk.
Spread the batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
Divide the finished cake into 2 equal halves. Warm the jam and spread it on one half, then put the second half on top of the first.
Now mix a lemon glaze from 250g sifted powdered sugar, the lemon juice and a spoonful of warm water for the time being. It should be viscous. If it is too solid, add a second tablespoon.
Spread the glaze evenly on the cake and let it set.
Finally, cut small slices about 3 by 5cm and enjoy.
