Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstich) I
August 08, 2010

I went to a lecture by 2 German bakers and they had this to sample. This recipe tasted as good as that one. Tips - be sure to have the warm water to dissolve the yeast no warmer than a baby's bottle and sprinkle the yeast on top of the water. Mine almost quadrupled in quantity. I also added 1 tsp of sugar to the yeast. Make sure everything that it calls for to be at room temperature is exactly that. My butter was a little too cool but I put it in anyway - that was a mistake. It all curdled. I had to throw it away and start over. This is pretty labor intensive but in the end I was very happy with it. Just follow the directions closely.
