Drommekage fra Brovst…..the first few times I had a tough time in pronouncing it, but I kept repeating over and over again like a school kid and got the hang of it! I know Danish Dream Cake sounds simple , and in fact is very appropriate for this cake, it surely is a dream cake.Initially I was hesitant with the topping , due to coconut , as most of the family members are no fans of it, but truly the combination of coconut , sugar and butter made it awesome. Making a eggless cake and substituting four eggs was also challenging.I used Egg Replacer. I did not change the recipe at all , only made it half, which of course I repented later.My son fell in love with this cake. I also took a piece of it for a friend who is a professional baker, he felt I should start taking orders!!
