Bee Sting Cake - "Bienenstich" Kuchen

 Bee Sting Cake. Bienenstich Kuchen. 

 
 
 A brioche pastry dough cake, topped with Buttery Honey-Glazed Almonds...

...and filled with pastry cream.

What a sweet childhood memory, of living in Germany.

Coffee's ready.  I have a slice waiting for you--and the recipe.  I'm guest posting on "A Culinary Journey, With Chef Dennis", today.  Please click here to see how I made it. A printable recipe card is at the end of this post.

Debby, you brought back memories for me also. I remember the year we lived in Germany and I came across this delightful pastry. The name caught my eye and I have loved it ever since. Thanks. Susan

Brioche + pastry cream + sweet almonds? Consider me "stung".

Debby, I enjoyed "meeting" you on Chef Dennis' blog and the memories and recipe in your guest post there -- thanks so much! (Sorry this is after the fact, but it's been a busy month.) Happy Thanksgiving!

Made this cake and never got to have a piece. It was eaten by everyone else in about a half hour. People had more than one piece. Everyone raved about it. People asked for the recipe.

Added 3/4 cup of whipped cream flavored with vanilla, Gran Marnier and confectioner's sugar to the filling, because I didn't think there was enough, but otherwise followed thw recipe.
