German Mole Cake / Maulwurf Kuchen

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. It was gorgeous here in Olympia. Today I am sharing something other than Décor for the first time. DESSERT...yup....a German Mole Cake. It looks like a mole dirt pile!
I will start out by typing the recipe and add some pictures of the process after that. No worries, it's actually quite simple

Total Time: 1 hour
Prep Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients for cake mixture:
2 3/4 cups white all purpose flour
3/4 cups white sugar
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) of unsalted butter
4 teaspoons of  baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 eggs
4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa
1 cup of whole milk

Ingredients for filling:
3 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream
1 cup of small sized chocolate chips
1/2 cups Banana Liquor (or substitute with 2 tablespoons of banana extract)
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 ripe bananas

Directions for the cake mixture
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla and cocoa in a bowl. Melt the butter in microwave or on stovetop. Add the melted butter and 3 eggs to the flour mixture. Beat with mixer. Add 1 cup of milk and mix some more.
Grease spring form (mine is 10 inches). Pour cake mixture into spring form and bake at 400 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes (until cake tests done). When cool,  hollow out inside of cake with a spoon, leaving a 1/2 to 1 inch ring around the outside AND leaving the bottom intact. (Think like you're making a thick pie shell out of the cake). Crumble the scooped out cake in a bowl (SEE PICTURES BELOW)

Directions for the filling
Whip the cream with the vanilla extract to soft peaks (not too stiff). By hand stir in Banana Liquor (or Banana extract) and chocolate chips. Peel bananas and cut lengthwise. Place on scooped out cake. Cover with the filling mixture into a hill shape. Cover with left-over crumbles from cake. (SEE PICTURES BELOW)

Here are pictures of the process.....I am lucky, my little artist made a mole out of Fondant. This adds a cute touch for decoration but is not necessary.



   






Enjoy Peeps...
