If you do, here is another unusual layered cake for your cookbook!
I won't talk too much this time. I'll just invite all chocolate-nuts and creamy cake lovers to read this post and to try this cake. I'm sure you'll like it! And the rest of you... I'm pretty sure it can easily make its way to your favorites list too! :)
List of ingredients:
for the cake sheet:
After you have prepared all the ingredients, let's begin! :)
1. Separate egg whites and egg yolks. You'll need whites for the sheet and yolks for the filling.
2. Prepare the cake sheet first: beat egg whites with sugar until stiff peaks form. Add flour and minced walnuts (you can add same amount of minced hazelnuts or almonds instead). Combine using a spoon.
3. Place a piece of parchment paper at the bottom of a baking pan and pour the mixture. Make it smooth and even and bake at 180°C until toothpick comes out clean. Remove the paper and let it cool completely.
I used 26 cm round pan, but you can use rectangular or square if you prefer (ex: 20x20cm)
4. Meanwhile, prepare the filling: beat egg yolks and 4 Tbsp sugar, add pudding powder and 50 ml milk. Combine until smooth.
You can use crushed wafers if you want your cream a bit crispy, or minced ones if you want it completely smooth. I chose the second one (I minced them in a blender). I used wafers with hazelnut filling, but you can make another combination if you wish.
7. Now when you've done everything, it's time to build the cake :) Place the cake sheet over a plate, cover with wafers filling, then with the chocolate one.
8. Beat the whipping cream until it holds soft peaks and cover the whole cake with it. Decorate on your own. I've sprinkled it generously with minced walnuts and this is how it looked like:
Enjoy and bon appétit!
