Delicious Classic German Mole Cake

Cake is always good, isn't it? Even if you just can not meet, you should not do without cake. :D And since cake doesn't go bad overnight, you can simply store it in the fridge and treat yourself to a slice for dessert or in the afternoon for a family coffee-and-cake round after a little game of table tennis. 

My kids are just crazy about bananas, so here today times the classic version of the mole cake - as a sheet cake, because 2 round mole cake recipes with cherries and a light version with strawberries's already on my blog.

Preheat oven to 180° (top/bottom heat). Grease the baking tray and line with baking paper.

Beat room-warm butter with sugar and 1 pinch of salt in 8 min. until creamy. Gradually stir in the eggs. Mix flour, cocoa and baking powder. Stir flour mixture and milk alternately into the dough.

Pour the batter onto the baking paper and spread very smoothly as well as evenly to the edge of the tray. Bake in the preheated oven (center) for about 25 minutes. Let the finished cake cool for about 30 minutes on a cooling rack.

Stir the quark until smooth. Whip the cream until stiff and fold into the quark in two portions.

Carefully remove the cake base from the baking paper and place on a cake plate. Cut off about 0.5 cm of the surface and crumble in a small bowl. Peel bananas, cut in half lengthwise. Spread halves on top of cake layer. Spread cream evenly and sprinkle with dough crumbs. Refrigerate cake for approx. 1 hour.


Tip: in summer also very tasty with strawberries!
