My Mom's "Schüttel-Kuchen" (Shaking-Cake with Vanilla Creme and Mandarines)

This is an amazingly delicious and fast cake. You just combine everything and shake for a couple of minutes. Good for last minute decisions and so tasty. It has a nice cream combined with juicy fruits and soft cake layers. This is one of my Mom's specialties (next to her amazing apple cake). You can substitute the mandarines for other fruits as well (e.g. strawberries, pineapple, peaches).


  • 2 packages (each about 2.3oz) "Dr. Oetker Paradies" vanilla creme mix (or vanilla pudding instant mix)
  • 2 packages (each 0.35oz) wipping cream stabilizer
  • 2 x 150ml whipping cream
  • 2 cans mandarines
  • 1 Angel fruit cake (or German style "Tortenboden" - a thin sponge cake)
  • Chocolate shavings for decoration
  • Optional: almond shavings


  1. Either use a German style "Tortenboden" on which you would add the cream mix in the end, or use a block of Angel Fruit Cake. But because the Angel Fruit Cake is so thick, you need to cut it and layer the cream in between. Cut the Angel Fruit Cake twice lengthwise, so that you have three layers.
  2. Chose a big pot that has a lid that seals good. Add the vanilla creme mix (just the instant powder), the wipping cream stabilizer, the manderines (with the juice) and the whipping cream to the pot. Keep a few mandarines for decoration. Close the pot. Start shaking for a couple minutes. Then open it and if not smooth enough mix the rest with a spoon. 
  3. Spread the cream mix onto the cake layers and decorate the top layer with the leftover mandarines and chocolate shavings.
Note: My Mom also adds almond shavings as a topping or on the bottom of the sponge cake. This gives it a little bit of a crunch and is very tasty :)
