Today I am guest posting a German cake, Donauwelle, at “Cooking with Michele”.

Michele is one of my local Denver food blogger friends that I highly admire because of her versatile talents. She takes clients to Italy on cooking trips, keeps a successful catering business and just finished her very first cookbook. She teaches cooking classes out of her home, supports a no kid go hungry program called Cooking Matters, and is a successful local food writer.

Michele knows my love for baking and when she asked me to guest post she wondered if I could share a German cake recipe with her and her readers.

Please head over to Michele’s to read my full post, see more pictures and get the recipe for Donauwelle, a traditional German cake that can be found at any get-together in Germany where cakes are served. Enjoy!

Hello Kirsten! I am absolutely THRILLED to find this beautiful, authentic recipe for my 2nd fave dessert of all time – Donauwellen!!!! My German (former) sister-in-law, whose father was a baker, used to bake Donauwellen every time we visited her in Fritzlar. It was love at first bite! I don’t have her recipe 🙁 but I can tell just by looking that this is THE one! I agree with Jeanny: “So, wie es hier ist (mit leckerem Schokoguss) muß es sein ” 🙂 Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
P.S. My top fave dessert on the planet is Schwarzwaelder Kirschtorte!!!

Oh, I love Donauwellen! I get a craving for this cake at least once or twice a year, sends me back to childhood 🙂 This is an absolutely delicious cake, very popular in Germany and it looks stunning due to the beautiful waves.

So far I used this recipe:
Donauwelle Rezept which is my absolute favorite.

I must say though that I was never 100% satisfied with the chocolate topping because I prefer it a little softer than it turns out with this recipe. I just saw that your recipe calls for some nutella, which is a great idea! Might just be the solution 😉

Will try the recipe asap and report back!

My friend’s dad made us Donauwelle one time but used sour blackberries instead of cherrys. Needless to say, it was quite the treat! 🙂

You are inspiring. I could lick my screen right now. I’m heading over to check out the recipe.

I love Donauwellen. Habe die als Kind im Wettbewerb mit anderen auf Hochzeiten verspeist. Die Kombi aus Pudding, sauren Kirschen und Marmorkuchen.
Manchmal findet man in Bäckereien Donauwellen mit Kakaopuder drauf, aber das ist natürlich nicht richtig. So, wie es hier ist (mit leckerem Schokoguss) muß es sein 🙂

Schönes Wochenende!

Hi Kirsten, I can’t get Dr Oetker pudding here in New Zealand. However, I could just make a very thick custard instead. Roughly how thick is the layer using Dr Oetker? Is it just a very thin layer? The slice looks amazing. I did not come across it when I was a youngster and living in Germany but I shall certainly give it a try, particularly since the cherry season here has not ended as yet.

Are those legal? They look amazing!

Hi Kirsten, I’m Michele’s sister, Janine. 🙂 Just wanted to say, #1, I totally see the waves – in the texture of the chocolate icing! I thought that before I even read your post. (Leave it to an artist to see that!). and #2, OMG does that cake look drop-dead-delicious! I’ll have to make it!

Hallo Kirsten,
tolle Fotos, ich liebe Donauwellen, sie kommen immer gut. Meine Mutti baeckt sie jedes Mal wenn wir in Good Old Germany sind.
