Bublanina – Czech and Slovakian Bubble Cake
Bublanina is a traditional Czech and Sslovakian cake, “Bublanina” comes from the Czech and Slovakian word for bubble, probably because the batter bubbles up around the fruit. For me it was the name that first caught my eye while searching for a Czech recipe for my “Baking Around the World” challenge. And once I saw what went in it, seasonal fruits in a souffle like batter. I just HAD to make it. And it was delicious.
Bublanina for all seasons
This cake can be made all year round using seasonal fruits, most common fruits are plums, cherries, strawberries, nectarines, apricots and blueberries. The cake reminds me of a French Clafoutis and Polish Plum Cake.
Making the Bublanina
A lot of the recipes I saw required whipping up egg white for extra air, but I decided to go for the one bowl method. Which basically means you add all your ingredients except the fruit into a bowl, whisk it up, top with fruit and put it in the oven. As easy as pie or in this case, cake 🙂
I’ll still go through it all step-by-step
You’ll need, fruit, flour, sugar, eggs, milk, oil, lemon zest, vanilla sugar and baking powder.
In a bowl, add sugar,
And baking powder..
Give it a light whisk.
A pinch of salt.
Vanilla sugar (I’m using my homemade vanilla sugar)
Give it a good whisk till it’s all combined and a smooth batter.
Pour it into your baking tray.
Top it with fruit and put it into the oven.
You’ll end up with a delicious, light, moist cake.
All that’s left to do is grab a slice, take a bite and feel the soft cake just melt in your mouth. delish!
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s start baking!
