Easy Eierlikörkuchen Recipe – Perfect for Company or Everyday

I love it when a cake recipe comes together fast, and bakes up without fail. Better yet, it looks “fancy” enough for company, but you can toss a slice into a lunch pail, and it arrives looking and tasting great. This Easy Eierlikörkuchen Recipe is perfect that way. Think of the Eierlikör Cake as the Little Black Dress of cakes. You can take it anywhere! Top it with a simple dusting of powdered sugar or make a Zuckerguss (Simple Icing) to top it. Serve the cake with berries and maybe a Schlag of Whipped Cream, and you family will be licking the plate.

What is Eierlikör?

When I was a child visiting my Oma in Germany, she used to let us have Eierlikör either over pudding or  fruit for dessert. We felt so sophisticated having an “adult beverage” (even in a very small amount). Looking back, I’m pretty sure Oma was just hoping that we would take a nap after the mid-day meal, so she could have a rest herself….

You see Eierlikör is an alcoholic Beverage made from egg yolks, sugar and brandy. Think of it as VERY thick Eggnog, without nutmeg. You will find it in American stores as Advocaat (I ordered my bottles from Bevmo… you have to ask them to order it).

If you can’t get it from the store, you can make it yourself using this recipe from Spoonfuls of Germany–> Homemade Eierlikör



Once you have it, you will find a million sweet uses for this treat. I still love it poured over pudding or fruit, you can even pour it on pancakes or waffles as an alternative to syrup (plus, it starts the day off with a bang). You can drink it straight, but it’s just a bit TOO thick for me to enjoy that way.

And because it’s so thick, it keeps the Eierlikörkuchen moist for a few days!

Find a Gugelhupf Pan

I baked my Eierlikör Kuchen in an 8 inch Gugelhupf pan. You could probably substitute a Bundt pan… just watch the cake to make sure it’s done because it may take a little longer)

BAKING TIP!

Be sure you take the time to beat up the eggs and powdered sugar! You want it to be light and golden. Then carefully fold in the dry so you don’t lose the fluffiness!
