Week 6: Bublanina

Bublanina is a Czechoslovakian coffee cake that is filled with fresh fruit.

The cake gets its name from the Czech word bublina, which means bubble. This is because the cake bubbles around the fruit when it gets baked.

Sometimes, the cake can be served with a Czech crumble/streusel called drobenka. Oftentimes, Bublanina is just dusted off with powdered sugar.

You can use any fruit you want in the cake. However, I recommend trying stone fruits, like cherries or peaches. In this recipe, I used strawberries and cherries.





  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour


  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh fruit


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and grease a cake pan with butter.

  2. In a small bowl, mix all the streusel ingredients. Place in the refrigerator to chill.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine all the cake ingredients. Pour into the cake pan and top with streusel topping if desired. Bake for 35 minutes until golden brown.
