Danish Butter Cake Tutorial – Addition

Danish Butter Cake with Almond Glaze

Danish Butter Cake with Almond Glaze

I posted a tutorial on Danish Butter Cake a while back.  In the comments, Helen posted a very useful tip in regards to the dough and has sent pictures as well.  With her permission, I am posting her comment and pictures to help others as well.

Helen said, “Regarding the butter/flour paste which you rolled out with much trouble with a rolling pin, may I suggest that you put the blob between two sheets of wax paper and spread the paste with your hand to a 7-inch square, using a spatula to keep the edges straight. Once chilled, the wax paper peels off quite cleanly, but let it set at room temperature before removing the wax paper until it becomes flexible so that it doesn’t crack while working with it.”

Spread the mixture between 2 layers of wax paper.
