1/2 cup almond paste

2 tbsp amaretto

Baumkuchen is now known far beyond the borders of Germany. To achieve the typical layering, we need a top heat grill. So it's high time to implement this wonderful dish on the Otto Grill. And it is so easy!!!





  1. Gently warm almond paste and butter together until no lumps remain. Beat eggs and sugar until the mixture is semi-stiff. Add almond-butter, salt and amaretto and beat until homogeneous, then fold in flour.



  1. Preheat the Otto Grill on the lowest setting. Butter a Drip Tray and spread a thin layer of the batter. Set the tray at the very bottom of the Otto Grill and bake the cake until its surface gets golden brown. Then take it out and apply the next layer. Repeat the process until the batter is used up.
    Finally, melt the chocolate with the cream in a saucepan over low heat and spread it on the cake.
