This is another cake inspired by my afternoon trip last week to Sweden. I saw some punschrulle in Malmo station and realised I’d not made them for years. They’re little rolls of cake wrapped in green marzipan and dipped in chocolate. You can buy them in Ikea ready-assembled or you can quickly make your own.
Punschrulle are a great way of using up any leftover cake and are easy to veganise. This isn’t a recipe as such, more like rough guidelines:
Mix together vegan chocolate cake crumbs, oats, biscuit crumbs e.g. Oreos and chocolate frosting until you have a mixture that will hold together. Traditionally these cakes also contain punsch liqueur but if you can’t find any you could use rum or brandy instead, or simply leave out the alcohol.
Roll the mixture into small sausage shapes and allow them to chill for half an hour in the fridge. Be sure to send your mum and sister a photo of the chocolate sausages because they look hilarious.
Also if your mum complained that last week’s blog didn’t include the photo of her wearing a Viking helmet, make amends:
Add a little bit of green dye to some marzipan, roll it out and wrap each sausage in a square of marzipan, sealing it completely at the side and both ends.
Melt some dark chocolate and dip both ends in. If you’re feeling fancy and want to add more decoration, put some of the melted chocolate in a piping or freezer bag, snip off the end and zig zag the chocolate over the centre. Enjoy!
