German recipe: kalte Hundeschnauze

Yesterday, while listening to the radio, I heard about a recipe for a refrigerator cake. It reminded me about a German recipe called “Kalte Hundeschnauze”.
This is what you need:

  • 300g coconut fat
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 50g cocoa
  • 3 eggs
  • a little bit of rum
  • 2 packets of biscuits, ideally the butter biscuits from Bahlsen Leibniz

Melt the coconut fat (‘Palmin’ in German) in a saucepan and leave to cool a bit. Mix it with the icing sugar (‘Puderzucker’), cocoa (‘Kakaopulver’), eggs (‘Eier’) and rum (‘Rum’). Take a lined cake tin (‘Kuchenform’) and layer the cream mixture with the biscuits, finishing with the cream. Put it in the fridge (‘Kühlschrank’) and leave there for at least 2hrs (‘Zwei Stunden’)

And enjoy!

Kalte Hundeschnauze, by the way, means cold dog snout 😉

Have you ever baked a German cake?
