Ingredients:
  • 500 g flour
  • 330 g sugar
  • 330 g soft butter
  • 330 g soft butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 15 g cocoa
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 sachet baking powder
  • Icing

For: 1 loaf tin
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Baking time: 75 minutes
Resting time: 30 minutes

Preparation:
  • Briefly mix the flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt and whipping cream together.
  • Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and the mixture is creamy. Then add the eggs and beat again until creamy. Mix this mixture with the dough.
  • Remove a third of the dough and mix it with the cocoa.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 °C. Pour the cocoa mixture into the loaf tin and bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Leave the cake to cool for 15 minutes. Then cut the cake into slices two fingers wide.
  • Take a biscuit cutter (in this case, a Holidays tree) and cut Holidays trees out of the slices.
  • Take another loaf tin and add a thin layer of dough. Then line up the cut-out Holidays trees on the layer of dough like an army. Pour the rest of the dough into the tin, making sure to cover the Holidays trees.
  • Bake at 180 °C for about 45 minutes. After baking, leave the cake to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Decorate as desired, e.g. use icing to draw a Holidays tree on the cake. Serve on the king’s cake plate from the Toy's Delight Royal Classic collection and enjoy. Bon appétit!
