German Mole cake recipe

Creamy and oh so delicious!

In Germany, Mole Cake is a favourite at kids' birthday parties, but from everything I’ve read it’s a favourite for adults too. We don’t have moles ‘down-under’ here in Australia, but this retro novelty cake seems to us, a perfect fun addition to a festive Christmas table. What’s not to love about a fluffy chocolate cake, filled with delicious airy cream and fresh fruit! It doesn’t matter how old you are, your guest will love this sweet dessert.

The classic mole cake consists of a chocolate sponge cake, cream with chocolate shavings and fresh bananas, however, we’ve added fresh raspberries for bursts of colour and to make it even fruitier. Other berries or cherries would also work.

If you are not a big fan of lots of whipped cream, you can fill it with something cultured and gut loving instead. Why not try:

Cultured cream
Cream Fraiche
German Quark
Dripped yogurt cheese
Coconut yogurt (for a dairy free filling)

With the Vibe Blender, mole cake is very straightforward to make and comes together super-fast. Once baked and cooled, the cake is hollowed out and filled with whole bananas and berries, then piled high with a creamy filling of your choice. The perfect mole hill look is achieved by crumbling the hollowed-out excess cake on top of the cream.
