Oster Kuchen -Easter Cakes - WHB #280

By Brii

Happy Easter!
this year I have had the honor and pleasure to use some of Iris (beloved mother-in-law) old Ester molds.
I admit my heart tighten when I had them in my hands, specially the hen. Iris has used it so much. it felt so strange, and I was tempted to leave it there. but then I thought that she would bee so pleased knowing me using them, so off I went.
Manfred couldn't find any recipe in her recipe books, so I used the ones I found together with the molds.
it is many years I leave at dawn or very late in the night, putting gifts at my friends gates, doors, windows.
I like it moving as a ghost in the dark, placing my gifts to be seen, but not to easy.
sometimes I hang them on gates, sometimes I put them in elevators, sometimes I climb up to window ledges
the molds are from Zenker. 


you will find it difficult to insert the irons in the tiny holes in the beginning, but after a couple of times it will be easier.


don't force, because it could bend and you will find all the filling on the table (or the floor)
it is very important that you grease and flour the mold and the when it is baked you wrap it in a wet dishcloth and leave to cool completely before you remove the cake.
it is little long but gives you a lot of satisfaction.
