RECIPE: Bienenstich

Just the word “Bienenstich”, which means bee sting in German, although there is nothing in it, exept for honey, which has anything to do, melts my heart. “Bienenstich” is a very traditional recipe from Germany, where you can get a good “Bienenstich” in hardly every bakery. Since my parents are from Germany we had it once and then on a weekend but I was not able to find it in a bakery near mine hear in Austria. Due to that I made my own on, which was my ladder to heaven and everything I really love has to have a place here so there you go. Bake your way to heaven! img_9325

You will need:

  • 250g flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pack of baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1 pack of vannila sugar
  • 250g sugar


  • 50ml milk
  • 30ml cream
  • 1 pack vanilla Pudding powder
  • 4 tablespoons sugar


  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 125g flaked almonds
  • 80g sugar



Let´s do this:   

Preheat your oven to 170C°. Take a mixing bowl and mix the flour, sugar and the pack of baking soda. Seperate the eggs. Put the egg yolks, vanilla sugar and milk to the flour and mix for about 3 minutes. In a clean bowl beat the egg whites until they are stiff, then fold them into the flour mixture. Put the sugar for the topping in a saucepan and let it melt completley, add the honey and the flaked almonds and stir until it becomes golden. img_9333Prepare a baking tin (a springform or like a brownie tin) with some parchment paper and then put the mixture in, spread the honey mixture on top and bake for 30-35 min.

In the meantime you want to mix the cream with the vanilla pudding powder and the sugar. Heat up the milk in a saucepan and remove it from the heat. Then add in the powder-cream mixture and put it back on the heat until it boils. Then remove it from the heat completley and let it cool.


Now all you have to do is to cut the cold cake in half, spread the vanilla mixture on the bottom and put the top of the cake back on. Garnish with a little bit of icing sugar and there you have your ladder to heaven.

Let me know what your cake to heaven is!

Love, Sophie
