Recipe: Waldmeister Cake

As I mentioned earlier, I baked a cake yesterday to celebrate my birthday with my grandparents and parents. I tried this recipe a few years earlier and I really liked the taste of this cake. It is not as filling as other cream based cakes. The base is really fluffy and airy and the orange cream in the middle is extremely refreshing!

Waldmeister Cake

I also love the tiny layer of marzipan that adds some sweetness to the cake (I could eat marzipan all day I have to say! But if you do not like it, just make the cake without it and it will still taste great!)

But most of all, I love the green jelly on top of it! Waldmeister tastes even better than marzipan and is refreshing as well! Preparing the jelly with white wine and white grape juice instead of water adds another fresh level to the whole taste of the cake! Thus, the cake is a perfect combination of great tastes and really refreshing so that it works great for spring and summer days!


Biscuit Base

  • 6 eggs
  • 175 g sugar
  • 1 tbs of lemon zest
  • 150 g flour
  • 1 tbs of baking powder
  • 90 g melted butter

For the Orange Cream

  • 6 sheets of gelatin
  • 100 g sugar
  • 250 ml orange juice
  • juice of one lemon
  • 250 ml cream

For the Topping

  • 1 box of jelly (whichever flavour you prefer)
    If there is a German deli around, you can also use Dr. Oetker Götterspeise Waldmeister
  • 40 g sugar
  • 250 ml white wine
  • 250 ml white grape juice
  • 200 g basic marzipan

Waldmeister Cake


Biscuit Base

  1. Beat eggs in a bowl with a mixer for around 1 minute on maximum speed until it’s foamy
  2. Add sugar and lemon zest and mix it with the eggs for another 2 minutes
  3. In another bowl, mix flour and baking powder and strain it over the egg mix. Constantly mix while spreading the flour mix on top of the eggs
  4. In the end, pour the melted butter into the dough
  5. Pour the dough into a spring form and bake it with 180°C for around 30 minutes
  6. After that let it cool down and take it out of the spring form
  7. Then cut it into two halts horizontally

Orange Cream

  1. Put gelatin sheets into cold water to soak
  2. Mix sugar, orange- and lemon juice
  3. Prepare gelatin according to package instructions
  4. When it starts to thicken, start whipping the cream and mix it with the juice mix and the gelatin
  5. Spread the orange cream on top of the lower part of the base and put the upper part on top of it
  6. Cool it for around 30 minutes in the fridge

The Topping

  1. For the topping, prepare the jelly or the Götterspeise according to the instructions on the packaging (ideally you do this a day before for it to thicken properly). Instead of water you use the white wine and the white grape juice for better taste
  2. Pour the mix into a flat rectangular bowl and let it cool until it thickens
  3. In the meantime, roll out the marzipan in the size of the cake and spread it on top of the upper layer of the biscuit base.
  4. When jelly has thickened properly, cut it into little cubes and spread it on top of the cake

The cake is now ready to eat!!! – Enjoy!!!
