Czech Bubble Cake Makes The Most Of Fresh Fruits
By HOPE NGO
Czech bubble cake, also known as bublanina, is synonymous with fresh fruit, and is named after the bubbles that form as the batter cooks up around the fruit. The cake may be topped with streusel or powdered sugar, and while it can be made with any fruit, including plums, apples, and peaches, it traditionally uses cherries or blueberries.
The basic recipe for this cake calls for eggs, flour, sugar, oil, baking powder, and salt; however, it can also be made with heavy cream, eggs, all-purpose flour, and sugar, and each family has its own recipe. Canned or frozen fruit can work in this dessert, as long as they’re drained or thawed properly before pouring on top of the cake.
When making bubble cake, make sure the eggs are brought to room temperature, since cold eggs might hinder the rising process. To serve a show-stopping bublanina, you can add the aforementioned streusel topping or drobenka before the cake is popped into the oven; once baked, it will last for five days in an airtight container.
