This Is A Great Recipe For A Baumkuchen (Tree Cake)

This Baumkuchen dessert, known as a Tree Cake, looks like a very elegant cake and it tastes as elegant as it looks. I love to cut into this cake because it has such a unique look to it.

The cake itself is extremely moist and delicious;¬†however, the deliciousness doesn’t end there, because you then pour chocolate glaze all over the cake. Even though it does take a few steps to make, it is worth every step.

It is a great dessert to serve at a diner party.

4 whole eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
