  • 1/2 Cup Sunflower oil (or if you want, you can use butter),
  • 75-100 gr Dark chocolate and Milk chocolate (or if you want, you can use other kind of chocolates),


  • 1- First of all, put your all ingredients on your work table. Then, prepare your German cake's dough first. Take eggs, warm milk, some of the instant yeast and sugar in a suitable mixing bowl and whisk them well (until it thickens and turns white). Then, start kneading the German cake's dough by adding some of the instant yeast, vanilin, butter, sunflower oil, salt and flour. Slowly add the remaining flour and keep kneading. Then cover it with a clean cloth and let it to rest for a while (15-20 minutes).
  • 2- Then take your resting dough and knead it again well. Then, divide your dough into 12 equal pieces. Then place a baking paper into oven tray and roll each ball in your hands and place it on the baking tray. After the shaping process is finished, press lightly on the dough with your hands and let them rise for about 30 minutes by covering it with a clean cloth.
  • 3- Then, bake in a preheated 180 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes. (The baking time of each oven may vary, so it is useful to cook it under control). Then, let the baked cake cool down and prepare your cream in the meantime.
  • 4- For the Cream (Pudding); mix all the ingredients except butter, vanilla and whipped cream in a saucepan. We mean that; put milk, egg, granulated sugar, flour and starch in a suitable saucepan and mix well. Then, turn on the stove and cook mixture until it thickens. Then, take your cream from the stove, add butter, whipped cream and vanilla to it and mix it well with the blender. Then let the cling film touch the pudding and leave it to cool by stretching it.
  • 5- For the Chocolate sauce; put your all pieces of chocolates into sauce pot and then add sunflower oil in it and stir them until melted (we used dark chocolate and milky chocolate at this stage, but you can choose according to your taste). Then take it off the stove and set it aside (if you want, you can melt your chocolates by using the process of bain-marie).
  • 6- Then, take the baked cakes and cut each one of them in half horizontally. Then, take the cream (pudding) with the pipping bag and spread it on bottom of the cakes. Then, dip the tops of the cakes in the cooled chocolate sauce and cover the bottom of the cakes.
  • 7- Lastly put all of them on the serving tray and garnish them with nutmeg powder and let it rest for about 1-2 hours in the refrigerator. Then, serve it as cold.
  • Enjoy!
