Whole Wheat 80 Golpes Cake Recipe. Totally Delicious!

I present to you this famous and incredible whole wheat 80 golpes cake. Because each recipe you love can be transformed and obtain magnificent results, even though it is whole grain. With an equally delicious taste, this cake has nothing to envy the traditional one. Cheer up!

Of German origin, called Achtzig Schlag (80 golpes cake) known for being one of the few cakes that are prepared with yeast and not with baking powder. With a taste similar to the so-called “facturas” by Argentines and known for the versatility of the recipe. Being able to use different ingredients for its filling and preparation.

I must admit that I am amazed, it is the first time I have prepared such a whole grain recipe like this and the results seemed extraordinary to me. A flavor, an incredible texture, it is a really exquisite cake! And if they don’t tell you that it is prepared with whole ingredients, you won’t notice!

I thought it was a fantastic idea to share a mate, coffee, tea or whatever you like the most! And it can also be a dessert after lunch or dinner. A cake that has the right amount of sugar, neither little nor too much (it goes without saying that if you like very sweet ones you should increase the amount of sugar, in the notes I will tell you how).

Let’s talk a little about the preparation:

Unlike other cakes as I already mentioned, this preparation has yeast. This means that this recipe has necessary leavened times to obtain the final result. Its preparation is not complicated in itself, but it is not a recipe that is made quickly and at the moment.

Its famous name refers to a step in the preparation. In which it consists of hitting the dough against the table 80 times in a row without stopping. Without a doubt, this recipe is good to relieve tension and stress when you have had a bad day!

Today there are wonderful kneading machines. Which means that this recipe can be made faster and effortlessly. You just have to place all the ingredients and turn on. In this way you not only save steps, but also heavy work.

The dough in this recipe is commonly made with butter. Although there are people who make them with beef fat or margarine. In preference it would not replace it because it does not taste the same way. Just like croissants when replaced by margarine. Decide this according to your own taste and choice.

This cake may or may not have different fillings. Among which could be sweet potato paste, quince paste, milk caramel, chocolate chips, walnuts, almonds, raisins, etc. Or simply add the soft butter and sugar. This is up to you whether or not you like to fill with other ingredients.

To make the dough rolls you have two ways: stretch the complete dough into a rectangular shape with a thickness of 5mm, fill, form a roll, cut the portions and place in the source. The second would be to divide the dough into equal parts (as many parts as you want), individually roll out into a 5mm rectangular shape, fill, and then place in the mold.

It is recommended to unmold easily because it sticks a lot, place parchment paper in the bottom of the mold and then spread with butter. I also recommend using a removable cake mold. In this way it would be easier to remove the cake once it is ready. It works with any mold but make sure it is tall.

Finally, for a more attractive finish, brush the cake just removed from the oven with some jam (peach or apricot jam). When the jam is thick, a solution is to place a little bit in a jar, add a little water and boil it. Stirring constantly until the desired consistency is achieved.

The size of thiswhole wheat cake is large, ideal to share with the family. If you do not want to prepare so much quantity or do not dare to be your first time, you can reduce the quantity of the ingredients by half and make a smaller one. Let nothing stop you from enjoying this whole wheat 80 golpes cake recipe!
