One of Our Favorite German Cakes ~ Bienenstich Kuchen (Bee Sting Cake)

Bienenstich Kuchen or Bee Sting Cake is an exquisite cake – a treat for both the taste buds and for the eyes – and a particular favorite of mine!  A simple Google Search for Bienenstich Kuchen or  Bienenstich Cake, will provide as many photos, recipes and descriptions of this cake as you could ever want, describing it as a sweet, yeast dough cake filled with pastry cream, covered in caramelized almonds and glazed with honey (thus the Bee Sting Cake name).  Here’s my wife’s Bienenstich Kuchen – enjoy!
