Bienenstich is a German cake traditionally made with yeast. Bienenstich is also known as Bee sting Cake. And what a wonderful, beautiful description! My version is a bit of a non-traditional version as there are no yeast involved but rather the normal cake flour, baking powder combination. Personally, for me a cake is not a cake if it is made with yeast. Yeast makes me think too much of bread instead! But it is once again just my own opinion! This is a delicious cake, if you have German friends, why not try this version to impress them? This cake recipe is a bit more of a time-consuming cake, as you have to make the cake batter, the nut topping as well as the custard filling. But you can be clever and make the custard filling while the cake is baking in the oven! Because I have had my best kitchen days working for German owners, I do like German people a lot and often miss my guests! If I can have the chance now to make their normal arrival cake which we made on the day when they arrived their flight, I would have made them this one and I would have included the lovely cups of Jacobs Coffee. If you like custard, try the Custard Pancake too.
