Easy and sophisticated

A moist yeast dough cake with a flavorful filling: that's the wreath cake with STROH-infused plums. For the full aroma, it's best to soak the dried plums in rum several days in advance. This will make the cake exceptionally flavorful.


For the yeast dough
(all ingredients at room temperature)

  • 500 g plain flour
  • 100 g sugar
  • 100 g butter
  • 40 g fresh yeast
  • 5 g salt
  • 250 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 egg yolks
  • vanilla sugar
  • grated lemon zest



  • 100 g dried plums, soaked in STROH
  • melted butter
  • cinnamon-sugar mixture



  • For the yeast dough, slightly warm up the milk.
  • Process all ingredients in a stand mixer until smooth dough forms. Then, cover with a damp cloth and let it rise.
  • While the yeast dough is rising for the first time, cut the dried plums into small pieces.
  • Brush the wreath pan with melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Roll out the risen dough on a floured surface into three rectangles, each about 7 mm thick.
  • Brush each rectangle with melted butter and sprinkle with some cinnamon-sugar. Evenly distribute the marinated dried plums on top and roll up the dough pieces.
  • Braid the rolls and place them in the wreath pan, making sure the ends touch and there are no gaps.
  • Let the wreath rise for another 40 to 45 minutes.
  • Afterward, brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
  • Bake the wreath cake in the oven at 170 °C  for approximately 60 minutes.




A variant for anyone who cannot eat yeast products:



  • 250 g spelt flour
  • 50 g sugar
  • 50 g butter
  • 7 g cream of tartar baking powder
  • 5 g salt
  • 125 ml milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • vanilla sugar
  • grated lemon zest
  • rum raisins



  • Use a food processor to mix all ingredients except the rum raisins into a dough. After mixing, gently
    work in the rum raisins. Please note that compared to a yeast dough, this dough will be quite sticky.
  • Proceed to use the dough as described in the recipe.
