How to Make Glühweinkuchen (Glühwein Cake)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375°F Baking Sheet or 9 Cake Pan
    Combine eggs and sugar. Using a mixer, beat egg mixture until it has tripled in volume. With the mixer going, drizzle in oil, then the Glühwein.
  • 2Gently fold in the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, chocolate pieces, and cinnamon.
  • 3Prepare a cake pan by greasing it with butter or cooking spray. Pour the cake batter into the cake pan and distribute it evenly.
  • 4Bake cake for about 45-55 minutes. Test cake for doneness by sticking the center with a toothpick - if it comes out clean, the cake is done; if it doesn't come out clean, bake the cake a few more minutes and retest.
  • 5Remove cake from oven when its done and allow it to cool completely.
  • 6To prepare the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, rum, and cinnamon. Drizzle over cake. Cut cake into squares before serving.
  • 7It cooks really high, use a shallow baking pan. Use shaved or chocolate chunks and recommend putting in double what the recipe calls for. Tastes like gingerbread without the sticky molasses! ENJOY, with a mug of Glühwein!!!!
