Bled Cream Cake

more than a year ago
Cream cakes, known in Bled for decades, are in fact the town's symbol. Although you can buy them elsewhere, those from Bled are simply the best. Ištvan Lukačevič, the former manager of Hotel Park patisserie, tested recipes for many years before he finally succeeded. His cream cakes, which are prepared at this patisserie and sold in the café opposite the hotel, are famous. What is the secret?

In fact, there is no secret - only experience matters, and the cooks from Bled have plenty of that. Since 1953 they have been serving up 'Kremšnita' here, October 2013 seeing the 12 millionth slice unveiled in a whirl of glory at the annual carnival in its honour.

Let us tempt you with the recipe: a golden crispy crust made from butter dough (mixed with butter, not margarine), a delicious vanilla cream of exactly the right consistency (with exactly the right amount of flour - if there is too much the cakes are no good, if too little, they collapse after cutting), topped with whipped cream and a crispy layer of butter dough and finally, last but not least, a good dusting of icing sugar. You see? Your mouth is watering already.

From 2014 new flavours are available: Mixed berry flavour cream cake, FIT cream cake (made with wholegrain pastry and brown sugar) and chocolate flavour cream cake.
