This is what I like most from Monday morning... I can have time to browse or post my baking *hahaha* maybe because of some people carry over the weekend mode so the office is a quiet peacefully morning :p
As I promised to post the Spiegeleikuchen made last Saturday, now here we go...
I took the recipe from Anne's kitchen. Same as her, I was also falling in love with the picture right away and curious what it tastes at the same time. So I've decided when my baking mode is back on, I'll definitely choose this one first *hihihi...can't wait to taste*

I followed the recipe gram by gram. I like everything, the cake, the sour cream pudding and the peach *I used peach instead of apricot, cuz that's what I found on the supermarket rack :p* But the Tortenguss which can be replaced by Indonesian agar-agar turned out too hard. Most comments I got was basically the same... "hmm...yummy, but the Agar-agar is too hard" :( Don't know if the original Tortenguss will be like this or not. When I was preparing the last layer, the Agar-agar, I was already in doubt it's gonna be hard. The recipe called for 2 packages with 500ml water. I even added 150ml more and about 1 cup of sugar *most of my family like sweet than sour* If I'm gonna make this cake again next time, I think 1 package of Agar-agar is more likeable :)

One more thing, since I don't have 28x40 cm pan I used one square pan 28x28 cm. Afraid of the cake being too thick and takes long time to bake, in addition I used one more smaller round pan. Of course the peaches wouldn't be enough *dooh... why didn't I think of that earlier* hehehe Lucky I was making the jelly (posted earlier) at the same time and steal some mandarin oranges *hihihi*, and taadda........... Spiegeleikuchen changes in the meaning *hahaha* no longer as Indonesian Telor Ceplok but Bulan Sabit :p Me and my boyfriend think that maybe next time to have any other fruits which is fresh and soft and of course suit to our taste. And once again I think the meaning changes *hahaha*
