Yeast dough

  • 500 g flour
  • 1 cube yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 60 g butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 50 g sugar
  • 250 ml milk lukewarm


  • 200 g almond flakes
  • 50 g powdered sugar
  • 50 g sugar
  • 125 g butter in flakes
  • 200 ml cream


Prepare yeast dough

  • Put half of the flour in a mixing bowl of a food processor.
  • Crumble in the yeast.
  • Add half of the sugar.
  • Add some lukewarm milk and mix to a pre-dough.
  • Let the pre-dough rise, covered, for about 30 minutes.
  • Add the remaining sugar, the egg, the milk and the flour.
  • Work everything into a nice smooth yeast dough.
  • Let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  • Line a deep baking tray with baking paper.
  • Roll out the dough and let it rise on the prepared tray for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Using your fingers or a wooden spoon handle, press small indentations into the dough.

Spread the topping

  • Sprinkle flaked almonds, powdered sugar, sugar and the butter flakes evenly over the dough.
  • Bake the butter cake in the preheated oven for approx. 20 minutes at 180 °C - 200 °C top/bottom heat until golden brown.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and pour liquid cream over it while it is still hot.


The butter cake is best served freshly baked. The sheet cake can also be frozen in portions and tastes like freshly baked after thawing and then briefly baked in hot air.
