Christmas Calendar 2014 Day 15 - Christmas TUC cake

The TUC cake recipe is one of my most overall popular blog posts, so I decided to twist this recipe into a perhaps coming classic Christmas cake recipe ?

I replaced the hazel nuts with almonds, as some people are allergy to hazel nuts. And besides from vanilla sugar I have added into some German Lebkuchen spice. Cinnamon alone or combination of cinnamon, cardamon, ginger and cloves could be another option, if you have no Lebkuchen spice in your kitchen.

  • 150 g TUC biscuits / salty biscuits
  • 350 g sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Lebkuchen spice
  • 200 g almonds
  • 7-8 egg whites
  1. Grind the almonds.
  2. Crush the biscuits into a fine powder
  3. Mix the biscuits with almonds, sugar, Lebkuchen spice & vanilla
  4. Whip the egg white stiff
  5. Blend the egg white into the dry powders
  6. Pour into a baking form, diameter 22 cm
  7. Bake at 175'C for 30-40 minutes
