Delicious Danish Week Desserts

Wednesday 17th October 2018

Its week 8 of GBBO marking the shows very first Danish week. So to help you get a slice of all the action, we have put together a yummy selection of Danish desserts so you too can take on the challenge.

There’s not long left until our Battle Of The Bakes competition ends (midnight Thursday 18th October), so get entering to be in with the chance of winning amazing prizes such as a trip to Cadbury World, tickets and an overnight stay for this year’s Cake International in Birmingham, and a hamper full of Renshaw goodies.


 Sensational Cinnamon Swirls

A superb treat, this sweet sultana cinnamon swirls recipe from Taste is perfect for accompanying your tea break, or would even make the ideal weekend breakfast. Definitely one for the more experienced of bakers, we are sure these swirls will be a hit!

? Top Tip – Take your Cinnamon swirl designs a step further by using Rainbow Dust ProGel Colours to give your dough a funky makeover.


Risalamande (Danish Rice Pudding)

A delicious creamy Danish pudding traditionally served at Christmas, this recipe by Nordic Food & Living is great for a Winter warming treat, or even indulgent lunchtime snack! Why not replace the cherry sauce topping with our scrumptious Simply Create pour over icings available in Chocolate, Vanilla, Caramel and Sicilian Lemon. You’re welcome!

? Top Tip – Always use a non-stick pan, this will prevent your rice from burning and ruining your pud. If your rice does start to burn, gradually keep adding milk to achieve a soft fluffy creamy texture.


 Dreamy Dream Cake

A super basic cake recipe yet truly irresistible, the Dream Cake has become a staple within the Danish culture. Featuring a coconut topping and vanilla sponge this cake can be enjoyed with a cup of tea, ice-cream or even on its own. Try out the recipe here from The Simple Things website. For an extra layer of yumminess, sandwich our new Renshaw Simply Create Caramel Ready to Roll Icing between your sponge. Delicious!

? Top Tip – Cool your cakes upside down, this will help give your cake a flat top making it easier to decorate and stack.


Aebleskiver (Danish Pancake Balls)

Blood orange & cardamom pancakes (aebleskiver)

A pancake and doughnut hybrid, this recipe from BBC Good Food featuring flavours of blood orange and cardamon, is sure to become a family favourite. Great for parties, puddings or even a little treat, we think this bake is great if you have a little time to spare and a sweet tooth, with the recipe making a whopping 24 pancake balls! For a festive finish, sprinkle over top our Rainbow Dust Edible glitters, perfect for the upcoming Christmas season.

? Top Tip – Make sure to wipe your pan between bakes, to stop any burnt butter from your previous batch baking into your new one.


Danish Layer Cake

Traditionally a Danish celebration cake, this Layered Danish Cake Recipe by Baking Mad is super simple and can be customised with your favourite filling. Taking less than 1 hour to make and bake, this cake is perfect for the beginner or if tight for time. Great for birthdays, try mixing in your favourite Rainbow Dust ProGel Colours in each cake tin for a fun colourful design. Or alternatively, create an ombre effect on your cake using one ProGel Colour in different concentrations between sponge batter layers.

? Top Tip – Allow your cakes to fully cool before assembling, this will prevent the filling from melting and dare we say it … give your cake a soggy bottom!
