Lithuanian tree cake (Sakotis)

Linas Johansonas told about the Lithuanian tree cake (Sakotis) also called the branch cake.  It dates back to the 16th century.  It is a unique-looking hollow cake made of butter, eggs, flour, sugar, and cream.  The spikes or branches are made layer by layer over a rotisserie.

He spoke to the ClevelandPeople.Com Passport Adventurers at the Cleveland Lithuanian Club.  The Passport Adventurers visit traditional ethnic restaurants and showcases the food, culture, history of the country – in this case Lithuania.
