Food - Recipe - Danish Dream Cake (Drømmekage)

From a very young age I eat this cake at birthday parties as well as normal Victoria sponge type cakes, even though I don't remember it much!! For those on my blog that don't know I was born in Denmark (my parents are English so don't worry) and always go back every few years, less now my dad has retired, we would eat a lot of Frikadeller's and this cake, plus the pastries as well. I decide to re-create it to see if I can do it again!

 Danish Dream Cake (Drømmekage)

Prep Time: 15 Minutes 
Cooking Time: 45 Minutes 
 Total - 1 hr

Makes 12-16 servings. 


• 250g Plain Flour 
• 2 tsp Baking Powder 
• 50g Butter 
• 200ml Milk 
• 3 eggs 
• 300g Caster Sugar 
• 1 tsp Vanilla Extract 

 For the Topping: 
• 125g Butter, softened to room temperature 
• 50ml Milk 
 • 100g Dessicated Coconut 
• 200g Muscavado Sugar


  • 2 Large Mixing Bowls
  • 8 or 9-inch (20-22cm) square or round baking pan
  • Wooden Spoon 
  • Whisk
  • Palette Knife

1. For the Topping: In a mixing bowl, combine all topping ingredients. Set aside until ready to spread over cake. For the Cake: Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C Fan) /400°F/ Gas Mark 6. 
2. Grease an 8 or 9-inch (20-22cm) square or round baking pan. If desired, line baking pan with parchment paper, then grease paper. 
3. Sift the flour with the baking powder. Melt the 50g butter and mix with the 200ml milk. Beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy, and then fold in the flour mixture. Lastly, fold in the butter and milk mixture. 
4. Pour into prepared baking pan and bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted into centre of cake comes out clean (leave oven on and set to 225° C (205°C Fan) /425°F/ Gas Mark 7). 
 5. Remove cake from oven and immediately spread the topping over cake and bake cake for an additional 5-10 minutes 225° C (205°C Fan) /425°F/ Gas Mark 7. Cool cake completely on wire cooling rack before serving. Cut cake into squares (or wedges, if baking cake in a round pan).
