The filled butter cake from Germany is very similiar to the regular butter cake but this cake has a delicious filling. This filling is consisting of vanilla pudding and if you have some egg liqueur (Verpoorten), you can add it to the filling – that makes  a little difference. If you add some teaspoons of cocoa powder to the pudding you have a nice creamy chocolate filling. Or add some raspberries, blueberries or apricots to the filling. There are plenty of variations. Enjoy this cake! Happy Baking!
