It’s the first advent Sunday this weekend ⭐️

If you want to bake something festive, you need to try out this recipe! This cake is made out of thick and creamy classic german egg liqueur and cinnamon-sugar apples.

The egg liqueur can be self made (recipe coming soon 🤩) or store bought. You shouldn’t use egg nog for this recipe, because it is way to fluid – but if you don’t have egg liqueur you could try it with egg nog with half of the amount (75 ml).

It’s fluffy and buttery with a christmassy flavor. For this I use Christmas flavor seasoning which is made out of cinnamon, coriander, cloves, star anise, allspice, nutmeg. If you don’t have a mixed one just use a pinch of each spice.


  • 175 g soft butter
  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • 1 TSP vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 150 ml egg liqueur
  • 300 g all purpose flour
  • 1 TSP baking powder
  • 1 TSP Christmas spices (cinnamon, coriander, cloves, star anise, allspice, nutmeg)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3 apples, half a lemon
  • Cinnamon sugar mixture


  • Preheat the oven to 170 °C / 340 °F. Prepare a round baking tin, line it with baking parchment and grease the sides with butter.
  • Peel the apples and cut them into quarters. Then cut them in fan shaped. Coat them with lemon juice and set aside.
  • Mix together butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Then add the eggs one by one.
  • Fold in the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, christmas flavor/spices) with a spatula alternately with the egg nog until just combined (don‘t overmix).
  • Fill the batter into the tin and place the apples on it evenly. Drizzle some cinnamon and sugar all over the top.
  • Bake for 40-45 min and let it cool down for 5 minutes in the tin.
