Dreamy Muffins

In Denmark, “Dream Cake” is a very popular cake. It consists of a yellow sponge cake, with a caramelized-sugar-coconut topping. Delicious!

This is the muffin version, but can be made as cake as well. just pour the batter into a mould, and when a cake skewer comes out clean, spread the topping and finish the cake in the oven.

250 g all-purpose flour

250 g sugar

50 g butter, melted

3 eggs

2 dl milk

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tbsp. vanilla sugar


125 g butter, melted

½ dl milk

200 g brown sugar

100 g shredded coconut

Whisk the eggs and sugar until foamy, add the butter and milk. Stir in vanilla sugar, flour and baking powder.

Divide the batter between cupcake moulds, about 1/4. (or pour the batter into a single mould)

Bake at 200 degrees Celsius, for 10-15 minutes (I would guess 20-25 minutes for a single mould, but try with a cake skewer).

add the topping to the muffins, and bake for 5 more minutes (5-10 minutes for a single cake)

The topping is prepared by melting butter, milk and sugar together, letting it reach a boil and stirring the coconut in.
