I desire a little sweet
As I am so lazy today, I didn’t do the shopping. However I must eat some sweet, so I have to look around what’s in the house. Of course there is no milk and I have run out of baking powder too… Let’s search for a recipe without milk and baking powder.
When I almost gave up, a Dobos cake recipe suddenly appeared. No milk, no baking powder. Perfect! I have baked this cake once, it was a memorable experience. I tested my blowtorch (a gift from my boyfriend), my new cake tin and the icing on the cake was a telephone call about my new job. So it will be another story.
To be as fast as possible, I chose the recipe of Stéphanie cake (very similar to Dobos cake) and I’ve simplified the design of the cake: I used my small baking pan, I baked 3 layers and I didn’t cover the cake.
Yield: 3 layers, 18 x 25 cm baking pan
- 3 eggs
- 6 dkg sugar
- 6 dkg flour
- 10 dkg butter
- 10 dkg icing sugar
- 1 tablespoon bitter cocoa powder
- Beat egg whites until stiff.
- Whip together the egg yolks and the sugar.
- Gently stir in the whipped egg whites.
- Add the flour, one spoon at a time. Mix to combine.
- Preheat oven to 180°C.
- Put bakery paper into the baking pan, grease it with butter and strew it with flour.
- Pour 4-5 tablespoon of mass into the baking pan, smooth it (1st layer of 3).
- Bake 10 minutes, then cool it down on a cooking grate to prevent sweating.
- Then grease the bakery paper with butter and strew it with flour again and bake the 2nd layer and then the 3rd.
- While the layers are relaxing, make the cream.
- Melt the butter, add the icing sugar and the cocoa powder, whisking just until combined.
- Finally, layer the cake.
