PostHeaderIcon Wednesday Cake “Blob cake”

I have been baking plenty of sheet cakes lately to take to all sort of events or just because ;). 
Tonight is my sons JROTC pie social that means another chance to fire up my oven and give it a workout.
Sheet cakes are usually the way I go when more than 8 slices are needed.          A sheet cake can make between 24-30 slices depending on how rich your cake is. Hurrah, for the sheet cake!
I ran across the term Wednesday cake (Mittwochs-Kuchen) when I looked through a German baking book for a recipe to make for today (Backvergnuegen wie noch nie). I had no idea where this term came from so I looked into the history of it. Unfortunately I was unable to come up with much.
There are two ways to go on this term but neither has a solid reference.

a) the term describes a cake that tastes better a few days after baking (bake it Wednesday and eat it Saturday like in the olden days). Often these types of cakes have streusel on them.
b) describes a cake that was baked after the weekend cake was polished of by  Tuesday

Both sound plausible so take your pick. I will dig deeper into this “mystery” in the future. Until than I don’t mind a cake in the middle of the week or any other day of the week.

Blob cake

Ingredients:
DoughPoppy seed fillingCheese Cake fillingStreusel
500g flour250ml milk250g quark (farmers cheese, cream cheese)175g flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast20g butter4T milk100g sugar
80g sugar30g Griess (semolina, grit, cream of wheat)1 egg (separated)100g melted butter
250ml milk100g crushed poppy seed80g sugarJam
80g butter50g sugar2tsp vanilla sugar250g cherry jam or any other
1 egg1 egg
pinch of salt1T rummelted butter for baking sheet
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Dough:
Mix flour, yeast, sugar, salt and add scrambled egg.
Melt butter and add milk. Add lukewarm butter/milk mixture to flour mixture and knead until you have a nice soft slightly tacky dough.
Cover (rise until double) = the recipe mentions no rise but to place the dough onto the sheet right away. I always let my dough rise first. How about try it both ways.

Poppy seed filling:
Melt butter in the milk, add Griess (semolina etc.) and let soak for 5 minutes. Add poppy seeds, sugar, egg, rum and cinnamon and mix it well. Set aside.
PS: I only had non crushed poppy seeds. It’s more gritty this way though.

cheese cake filling:
Mix the quark (cream cheese etc.) with the milk, sugar, vanilla sugar and egg yolk.
Beat the egg white until it forms stiff peaks. Lift stiff egg white under the quark filling. Set aside.

Streusel:
Melt the butter. Mix flour and sugar and with a fork mix melted butter under the flour mixture

Assembly:
Butter your baking sheet and roll out dough, add globs of the fillings (poppy seed, cheese cake and jam) onto the dough. I used Elderberry/Plum jam.

The internet is fueling the success of music because it can be listened to at any time of the day
and anywhere in the world. Hardware mechanisms used in the manufacturing of a
Wi - Fi internet radio system is less complicated and the point of ergonomics is kept in mind
by the manufactures. Many people will be happy with replaceable batteries for home use and occasional outings.

Even though your goal is just to lose 5 pounds in a week,
you should be strict with what you do so as not to inadvertently
undo all your hard work for vegetarian weight loss. Authorities inside the area will
need to have an intensive understanding of laboratory and labeling techniques, infection security precautions, appropriate blood attract approaches to the elderly and for infants
and even more. Now, the average healthy amount people are
supposed to lose is 2 pounds per week.
