Need Authentic Recipe for the Topping to Bienenstich aka "Bee Sting Cake"
nbicomputers' thread on New York Crumb Buns in the Photos section of the forum has gotten me to thinking about making up a pan of Bienenstich..I have not made this in over 20 years..When I did make Bienenstich, in the German-American bakery that I worked in while attending culinary school, we used a crumb topping very similar, ingredient wise, to what Norm posted in his recipe for the crumb buns..Something I read a while ago leads me to believe that in Germany the topping for Bienenstich is different from what we used in that bakery so many years ago..
Does anyone on the forum have an authentic recipe for Bienenstich that they would be willing to share with me??..I am especiaslly interested in the topping, as I have very good recipes for the sweet dough and the custard filling..
If I get a good recipe for the topping, I will procede to make myself an extender out of cardboard and aluminum foil and whip up a batch of Bienenstich next week..
