Danube Wave

With Cherries and Butter Cream

The Recipe

The Danube Wave is a cake made from a simple dough with sour cherries, butter cream and cocoa. It consists of light and dark dough that suggests the waves of the Danube river. The Danube Wave is usually baked on a baking tray and served in rectangular pieces.

This cake is unique in taste. The buttercream and chocolate coating make the cake pleasantly sweet and the different flavors complement each other perfectly. The icing on the cake is the fruity that flows into the taste thanks to the cherries in the batter.

Anyway, I think the cake is delicious. Especially with a cup of coffee.

But raved enough. Now it’s time to bake.
Have fun



The Dough:


4 Stck Eier
190 g Zucker
240 ml Milch
220 ml Pflanzenöl
450 g Mehl
2,5 EL Kakaopulver
4 TL Bakpulver
1,5 Gläser Sauerkirschen


The filling:


2 Pck Vanillepudding
800 ml Milch
4 TL Zucker
200 g Butter

The topping:


250 g Zartbitter Schokolade
2,5 EL Nutella
2,5 EL Pflanzenöl



Cut the butter into small pieces in a bowl and let it warm to room temperature.

Boil the milk and mix the pudding powder mixed with sugar and some milk into the boiled milk.  Then leave it for cooling in a bowl at room temperature. To prevent skin on the pudding, cover the pudding with cling film so that the cling film rests directly on the surface of the pudding.
Preheat the oven to 180 ° C top and bottom heat and grease the baking sheet well.

Place the eggs in the mixing bowl and whisk with the sugar to form a foam.
Slowly add the oil and mix until it is creamy.

Mix flour with baking powder and slowly add to the egg foam alternately with the milk.
Spread about half of the dough evenly on the baking sheet and mix the rest of the dough with the cocoa powder.
Now distribute the cocoa dough evenly on the light dough on the baking sheet.

Distribute the cherries evenly on the dough and bake the tray for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven.
Below you can see the individual steps in pictures.


Prepare and distribute the filling


Put the butter, which has meanwhile warmed to room temperature, into the mixing bowl and stir until creamy.

Slowly and gradually stir the pudding, which has now cooled, into the butter until a homogeneous mass is formed.

Spread the cream evenly on the cooled cake and smooth it out. Then chill until the chocolate cream is ready.

Prepare and distribute the chocolate cream


Melt the dark chocolate in a water bath and add the oil and Nutella. A relatively liquid chocolate pour should result.

Now distribute the chocolate icing evenly with a pastry card or knife and smooth it out.
