Make your own tremper syrup

door Linda Terrizzi

Trempeer syrup is used to prevent a cake or cake from drying out. It also gives your cake just that little bit extra, namely the delicious taste of liqueur. You can buy trempeer syrup ready made, but… why would you? It is made in this way and you can vary endlessly with flavors and strengths of the drink.

We often get asked how Antillean cakes (such as the bolo di cashupete or the 3 color cake) still get such a nice liqueur flavor in the cake. Mixing in the batter doesn't help; the alcohol evaporates during baking and therefore most of the flavor disappears.



How do you trim a cake?

Most Antillean pies (but also biscuit-based pies!) Get so much better when you sprinkle on the layers of cake with your homemade trempe syrup. You can do this with a brush, a plant sprayer or a trimmer bottle. Just what you like best!

I prefer to use a plant sprayer, because the trempe syrup is distributed very finely and the cake does not get too wet. But again, you can spread the syrup over the cake in different ways. The important thing is that a little bit of the syrup ends up on each layer of cake. This can then be withdrawn automatically.

Make tremper syrup

Making your own trempeer syrup is so simple that you'll wonder why these syrups are sold in stores at all. The only thing you need is…

Ingredients:

  • 100 ml water
  • 100 gr granulated sugar
  • 50 ml of liqueur of your choice

Preparation of the syrup

First mix the 100 gr sugar with the water in a pan.



Then heat the mixture until it boils and the sugar crystals are completely dissolved.

You have now made a simple sugar syrup.

Let the syrup cool to about body temperature and then add the liqueur.

Which drink is suitable?

In principle, you can use any spirits to make tremper syrup. anything with an alcohol content of more than 28% is suitable. I prefer to use rum to trim my cakes. Rum tastes great with almost any filling, and works great with sweet pies.



Rum with taste

Did you know that there is also flavored rum? These bottles”Bakara Rhum” come from Haiti in three flavors that are really perfect for trembling Antillean cakes. They contain no less than 43% alcohol and are really BULL of flavour.

I'll say right away: this isn't about rum with "a touch" of something… this delicious drink really has a lot of taste!

Other liqueur

For other liqueur you can think of:

  • Blue Curaçao (citrus, blue color)
  • Pisang Ambon (banana, green color)
  • Rum (white or brown color)
  • Alschermes (cinnamon, red color)
  • Baileys (cream, beige color)
  • Coffee liqueur (coffee, brown color)
