Baumstamm

Other recipes I found for Baumstämme were typically similar to a jelly roll with chocolate filling and the frosted exterior to look like tree bark.  It doesn’t look like that was the intent of this recipe.  The directions indicate their should be some streaking going on, possible with the chocolate cream, although it looks like it was added to the egg, sugar and flour mixture earlier.  Hmmmmmm……Maybe it tastes like a tree trunk!

Baumstamm

German:
Baumstamm
4 Eier, 120 gr. Zucker, 1 Eßl. Zitronenzucker, 120 gr. Mehl, 150 gr. Schokoladencreme. Die Eigelb werden mit dem Zucker schaumig gerührt, sodann werden Mehl und Eischnee darunter gezogen. Ein Blech wird mit Butter bepinselt , die Masse ½ cm dick ausgestrichen und hellbraun gebacken.

Google Translate
tree trunk
4 eggs, 120 g sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon sugar, 120 grams of flour, 150 gr chocolate cream. The yolks are stirred frothy with the sugar, then flour and egg whites are drawn underneath.
A sheet is brushed with butter, the mass ½ cm thick and streaked light brown baked.

 

My Interpretation
Baumstämme
4 eggs

120 g sugar
1 tablespoon lemon sugar
120 g flour
150 g chocolate cream

Separate eggs and whip egg whites until stiff.  Comgine eggs, sugar, lemon sugar, flour and chocolate cream. Fold in the egg whites. Brush the baking sheet with butter, then spread mixture about 1/2 cm. thick.  Bake until light brown.

  1. After baking, this has to be spread with the 150g of chocolate cream [and you could use jelly instead] and rolled up like a Swiss roll. The idea of a tree trunk comes from the rings of chocolate cream [or jelly] visible when the roll is sliced.

    Hope this helps.
