Frankfurt Wreath

With buttercream and


The recipe

The Frankfurt Wreath is a true classic.  At least in Germany. So I thought I'll bring you a little bit closer to my homeland and my childhood. 

The Frankfurt wreath is an annular buttercream cake, consisting of several floors, filled with buttercream and raspberry jam and coated with buttercream and covered with toasted almonds on the outside.

A treat for all the senses.



Stir dough:

400g flour

4t baking powder

180g sugar

1pinch salt

250g butter

4 eggs

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp milk




1/2l milk

80g sugar

1pck vanilla sugar

1 pinch salt

30g coconut fat

1pck vanilla pudding powder

1 pc egg yolk

180g butter



30g butter

50g sugar

125g almond leaves


Raspberry jam to sprinkle on the inside



Grease the mould well and preheat the oven to 180°C above and below heat.

Put the flour and baking powder, salt and sugar in the mixing bowl and mix well. 

Then heat the butter lightly and add.

Then add the lemon juice.

Now add the eggs and mix well until a smooth dough is formed.

Slowly add the milk.


Then pour the dough from the mixing bowl into the pre-greased form and distribute.

Place the mould in the preheated oven for approx. 30 – 35 min.


After the baking time has elapsed, check with a wooden stick whether the dough is really baked within the baking dish. This is the case if you stick the wooden stick in several places to the bottom in the dough and no more dough sticks to the wooden stick.

When the soil is finished, let it cool for 1-2 hours before taking it out of the mould and continuing to process.

In the meantime, we can prepare the buttercream, because it has to cool down for a while after the preparation before it can be further processed. 


Mix all the ingredients for the buttercream in a saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium heat and stirring constantly to ensure nothing burns.

Immediately after cooking, fill in a bowl and cover with cling film so that no skin can form.

Allow to cool for about 1 hour.

Now carefully remove the cake from the ring shape and place on a board. 

Cut the cake horizontally 2 times with a sharp knife, so that you get 3 rings, which you can put on top of each other later (see photo).

It is important to cut as straight as possible in order to be able to place them on top of each other again later without any problems. 

Then sprinkle the bottom with raspberry jam and then place the second bottom on top.

Sprinkle this bottom with the previously made buttercream and place the last bottom (lid) on top.

Finally, sprinkle the entire cake evenly from the outside with buttercream.

Melt 30g of butter in a pan and then add 50g of sugar and 125g almonds and toast in the butter until lightly browned. 

Apply the almonds to the outside of the buttercream. 

Dabie spread the almonds evenly around the whole cake.

Und genießen

And then the Frankfurt wreath is ready.

A really tasty cake, which tastes really good and also is very well received by guests.

All that remains for me is to wish me good luck and good appetite. As always, I would be very happy to comment.

Until next time

Whether for breakfast or for coffee, Butterkipferl are always delicious and not so heavy. I was always afraid to do it myself, but they are doable. 

So, try it yourself

A yeast pudding is very tasty, does not need many ingredients and is not very elaborate in the production. 

So go, what are you waiting for?
