Malina Bublanina – Raspberry Bubble Cake

The universal Czechoslovakian cake, called Bublanina, varies with the season and the fruit that is available. It’s a bit like a coffeecake in texture and is probably why it is sometimes served as a breakfast pastry. Commonly used fruits are raspberries, sweet cherries, tart cherries, plums, nectarines, apricots, strawberries and blueberries.

The name Bublanina comes from the Czech word for bubble and might refer to the fact that the cake batter bubbles up around the fruit, almost enveloping it.

  • 100 g unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup caster sugar, plus 1 tablespoon extra
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sour cream

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Liberally grease a 1.2 litre ovenproof dish.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until pale. Add egg yolks and beat for 4 minutes or until pale and combined. Add vanilla, sour cream and lemon zest, and beat to combine. Transfer to a large bowl, sift over flour and baking powder, then gently stir to combine.
