danish cream cake gåsebryst

One of the traditional Danish whipped cream cakes is this one called GÅSEBRYST, meaning “Goose-breast”. The recipe is more than 100 years old,  it´s made with a buttom of puff pastry (today often with a buttom of sugar bread) with marmelade, then vanilla cream and whipped cream in the middle, and on top marzipan. A very delicious cake!

    Oh my! it certainly does look delicious. One hundred years is a very long time for a recipe to still be around and enjoyed.

      🙂 Yes, certainly, 100 years of satisfied tasting seem to be a good recommendation.
      The cream cakes were invented around 1900, when it became possible to get bigger amounts of cream and keep the cream cold. They have always been seen as more high class and “finer” to serve than many other cakes. 🙂

      When it became possible to get bigger amounts of cream, -and keep it cold, the bakes started to invent cakes containing cream. They are served with cofee or tea at special occations, birthdays, sunday afternoon visits or one could enjoy a cake all alone, that would be easy. 🙂

    So lovely! My Danish flatmate used to make millefeuille and I loved the creamy berry-ness of it.

      Hi and thank you. :-). The millefeuille cake is called a “Napoleon cake” in Danish, I can imagine it must have tasted very good. I will show one here before too long, – a good excuse to buy one. 😉
