Baumkuchen (Tree Cake) | A German Ring-Shaped Luxurious Cake Recipe

I made Baumkuchen, a German ring-shaped cake! I can feel the deep flavor compared to other cakes by adding brown butter. I think it’s a really luxurious cake with a pretty shape and a layered look . Since it is baked one layer at a time, you have to keep watching the color next to the oven while baking. Baking time varies depending on machine specifications, so please bake while looking at the color. It’s really luxurious, so I think it would be a great gift too.

6. After repeatedly baking, place on a cooling rack to cool.

7. Put dark chocolate and whipped cream in a cup and microwave it for 40 seconds to melt it, then add soaked gelatin and mix.
