Tips For The Preparation
You can refine the dough with 50 g cocoa powder but then stir in a little milk, as the cocoa makes the dough firmer. If you want, you can round off the cream with eggnog. And if you don’t like buttercream, the cake also tastes great with an egg liqueur on the inside and outside.
