Yum, this looks great!
But what is golden icing sugar and where can I get it? Thanks!


I will certainly try this - once the heat wave is over!


Hmmm, der sieht sehr lecker aus!
Lustig, ich hab heute (nach langer Zeit) mal wieder gebacken, und zwar einen Marmorgugelhupf aus dem großen Buch der österreichischen Mehlspeisen von Josef Zauner, und auch in einer blauen Silikonform! Meine sieht allerdings etwas anders aus. Einen Teil des Teiges habe ich in Gläsern gebacken und gleich verschlossen. Mal sehen wie lange die halten.


Hi Caroline,

golden icing sugar is an unrefined, unbleached version of the commonly used icing sugar. i buy the BILLINGTONS brand
i find that while it has the same consistency as normal icing sugar, the taste is far richer and superior!
they now sell them everywhere in the UK - sainsbury's waitrose, tesco...

dorothee, das zauner buch sieht noch eine muss aus... steht schon auf meiner langen wunschliste ;-)


How much flour Johanna??


hi ashitaka,

hope it goes well!


OMG that looks good! Chocolate pure and simple :)


So yummy and yes very tasty indeed. By mere looking at the pics makes me grab virtually..LOL. By the way, care to include your sumptuous Lady Maria in a fabulous food hampers... care to check they're making hampers since the 1920's

So so yummy! Must try... must eat... chocolate...


This sounds wonderful and lovely and light


Thanks for a lovely recipe, I made this cake this morning with our left over Easter Eggs and I couldn't find golden icing sugar (I'm in NZ) so just used ordinary. It's a lovely cake and I have the most gorgeous photo of my almost 2 year old licking the mixing spoon. He had a piece after his lunch and loved it! It does seem to be a very forgiving recipe - I managed to really muck up the chocolate melting (too busy trying to manage a toddler) and it is still really good.
