Russian Cake

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone. I am looking for a cake with yeast in the batter.  Years & years ago, in my younger days, a Russian friend of mine got me a birthday cake. She said it was from a Russian bakery. 2 layer frosted cake. Don't remember the taste, but it was tall and the texture was very coarse. Reminded me of a carrot cake. She said it was made with yeast. I've never run across yeast in cake batter. Anyone have any ideas?

Should I take this as my first "sarcastic insult?" I HAVE looked. Both years ago, when it was fresh, and now. I am not interested in Russian Kulich or Mazurka. 

Please don't antagonize the new people on this forum.

P.S. You can take me off your forum list. I'm not coming back here again to be treated like an idiot.

Please don't do that. The response you got is not typical of the majority of people on this forum. Others would have tried to help I'm sure, but they may be like me - clueless about Russian cakes.

I'm intrigued by the idea that a yeasted cake would have a course texture. Yeast would make it a dough, which usually would not have that texture. Since she got it at a bakery, do you know what made her so sure it was a yeasted recipe?

It kind of defeats the purpose of Chef Talk when you're being directed to Google when posing a question. Yes, anyone can search Google for the answer to their question.

even though it is a bit late. I have found Pinterest of all places has many odd, niche recipes.

Those cakes look good Cheflayne and Dueh. I found one myself which looks good and unique. It says it is an Easter cake which I think I may give it a shot although I might practice it before the upcoming holiday.
