Sweet woodruff flavored cake...

The leaves are only there for decoration...
What you need:
250g butter
150g sugar
1 package vanilla sugar
3 eggs
1/2 teespoon salt
250g flour
1/2 teespoon backing powder
50ml sweet woodruff syrup

As for the syrup: Either you simply by one (the taste of those surely is stronger I guess), or you make it yourself: I've simply collected a bit of those leaves, and cooked them with a bit of water and lots of sugar, well, till its syrup....beware to use not too many though, since they can cause headaches.

First, mix the butter with the sugar and vanilla sugar, as well as the syrup..

Then, add one egg after each other, as well as the salt. 

Add the flour and backing powder.

Put it into an oiled backing form and bake it for about 50 minutes with 160°C. You can test again with a toothpich whether it's done.

First time I made a sweet woodruff flavored one, and the taste didn't came out so strongly, but maybe that's fine, too. I can only assume that with bought syrup it is stronger. Now...where are my testing subjects??
