This cake is a little tribute for the last huge snow days. A few days ago we sat in a kitchen, had a cup of tea and looked into the garden. It was full of snow – except one tiny whole. We imagined why there is a whole in the snow. We started with heating pipes in the ground, went over to rabbits and their wholes and ended with a snow cake with bunnies hidden in the snow.
Of course we had to bake such a cake and that is the result of it – a delicious hidden bunny cake 😉
Perfect for the Easter table 😉
We used a rectangular cake tin, but the most people have round cake tins, so we created the recipe for round cake tins.
Hidden Bunny Cake
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Baking time: 30 minutes
Ingredients for a cake tin diameter 26cm:
280g of flour
1/2 tsp. of baking soda
200ml of orange juice
160g of caster sugar
100ml of oil
Pinch of salt
100ml of coconut cream
1 tbsp. of caster sugar
100g of coconut flakes
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / gas mark 4. Place baking paper into a cake tin.
2. In a big bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Add the orange juice and oil and mix all ingredients to a firm dough. Fill the dough into the cake tin.
3. Peel and halve the apples. Remove the core. Place 3 apple halves on the cake. Cut the last half lengthwise into six pieces and place them like bunny ears on the cake:
4. Bake the cake in the oven on the middle rack for approx. 30 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and let them cool down for 5 minutes.
5. In a bowl, mix the coconut cream and the sugar. Pour it on the cake (not on the apple bunnies) and sprinkle it with coconut flakes.
6. In each bunny head, cut with a knife tip little wholes for the raisin eyes and cross cuts for the nose. Press the raisins in the wholes.
We wish you lots of fun with this recipe.
Tomorrow we will show you a delicious White Pear Tea.
