This is a classic Danish leftover cake that all bakers sell. It is made out of all the cakes they did not sell the day before. Everybody knows this, and it is therefore cheap! But it is very delicious and a great recipe to have in your repertoire, especially following big celebrations, when cakes might have hung around a little too long afterwards… If you're making these for children, leave out the alcohol!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g stale cake, such as coffee cakes or Danish pastries
200ml orange juice
2 tablespoons Scandinavian jams, blackcurrant jam
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cherry rum, or wine
50g desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Cut the stale cake into small cubes. Place in the bowl of a food mixer fitted with a dough hook and add all the other ingredients except the coconut. Mix until you have a thick, even paste.
  2. Form into 15 round balls each a bit bigger than walnuts. Roll in a plate of the desiccated coconut and leave to rest in the refrigerator for one hour before eating. (Store them in the refrigerator, too.)
