Osterlamm Cake

You will find this Easter lamb customarily on a decorated Easter breakfast table in Germany

Jasmin’s old family recipe

A juicy Easter lamb made from a cake batter has become a beloved tradition for many families in Germany. Instead of a large cake, you can bake little Easter lambs and Easter bunnies, which I personally like much better. This way everyone gets their own mini cake. You can flavor the Easter lamb batter in different ways, vanilla and/or rum or almond extract, also decorate the finished lamb cake in different ways.

A sweet Easter lamb dusted with powdered sugar should not be missed at Easter breakfast. With Jasmin’s recipe you can now easily bake this moist delicious cake yourself.
