Chocolate Baumkuchen – my new chocolate obsession

I love this recipe, and I'm not kinda obsessed with German-influenced baked goods. Traditional Baumkuchen is vanilla and almond flavored layered "crepe" cake with a chocolate glaze, but who ever said no to more chocolate?


Cake Flour x 2 cup Butter, melted x 1 1/3 cup Marzipan x 3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted x 2 cup cornstarch x 1 1/4 teaspoon Eggs, separated x 12 Vanilla Sugar x 2 Baking powder x 1 teaspoon Sugar x 1 cup Butter x 3 tablespoon Vanilla extract x 2/3 teaspoon light corn syrup x 1 tablespoon Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips x 1 cup
