Kleine Tassenkuchen

This recipe comes once again from the handwritten cookbook of my great-grandmother Jenny (1883-1940) and should have been something special even back at her time. These small cakes look great when served to guests. They taste lukewarm, but also very good cold. They are soft and moist with a crunchy top layer. Simply wonderfully easy to make and a real pleasure to eat.
