I suggest to try another cake Napoleon. The site has a cake with the same name, but I have a very different recipe. Author: Irina Khlebnikov. This cake I do for many, many years, alternating it with no less a favorite with Napoleon Sundae.
But if Napoleon Sundae is a so-called dry Napoleon, there is a completely different recipe. Here the whole point of that is taken very large amount of the cream, which includes a minimal amount of butter. In melted ice cream cake flavor.
The composition of vodka includes cakes, which makes the dough to really puff and reduces the number of cakes. One should not scare this ingredient, because we all know that alcohol evaporates when heated and the cake can be safely given to children.
Cake cooked very quickly, absolutely the whole process (I mean skating cakes, baking, cooking cream and assembly) takes two o'clock no more.
So, we need:
- Butter or margarine - 200g.
- Flour - 3 cups
- Salt - a pinch
- Vodka - 1 \ 3 cups (it somewhere 70ml).
- Water ice - 1 \ 3 cups (70 mL).
- Milk - 1 liter.
- Yolks - 3 pieces. (But the author writes that it takes just 2 eggs, not to solve the problem of utilization of protein. I, how many times did the cake has always done only in the yolks)
- Sugar - 1.5 cups
- Flour - 3 tablespoons with slide
- Sundae - 300 g
- Vanilla sugar - bag
- Butter - 50 g
The structure does not include sugar cakes. Oil chop and grind into crumbs with salt and flour
Add vodka and cold water and knead the dough. Much kneading is required, our task is only that all components are connected.
Here, I weighed the resulting dough and divide the result by 8.
Nakatala 8 identical balls. Now our ship balls in the freezer for 2 hours. Then We reach out and swap them in the refrigerator. Take one ball from the refrigerator and roll out into a circle with a diameter of 27 cm.
Dough often prick with a fork. The dough is very easy to roll out on baking paper. I use 2 sheets. On one kata cake together with paper and transfer it to a baking. While the cake is baking one, then on another sheet cake following kata, etc.
The dough is rolled out very easily, absolutely does not stick to the rolling pin and did not require podsypaniya flour for rolling. I have not slipped not tithe, once you put the bun on paper and easily rolled
Trimming is also possible to bake, but I do them very little by little turns.
Pechom cakes at 200 degrees, they are baked very quickly, about 5 minutes. One are baking - another ride, and so all 8 cakes. Since the test does not have sugar, the rouge they will not be pale white hue.
Baked cakes and then proceed to the preparation of the cream.
In a saucepan, mix the egg yolks (or whole eggs 2), sugar and flour. Pour milk, stir well and put on a small fire. Interfere with the need continuously to serious thickens, but do not boil.
Othmer our ice cream, we give him a little melted. When we have a good cream thickens, then add the cream, vanilla sugar and a slice of butter.
Here it is - a very small. Mix everything and boil for 2 minutes We do not need to cool our cream. We will smear cakes warm even more hot cream. Take shape slightly larger than our cakes, spread the bottom of the foil and put our first cake.
On each cake I smear on 6 table spoons of cream, very generous and sincere. We have to use absolutely all the resulting cream, and it will be a lot. Shortcakes will absorb most of the cream, and become tender.
So, together the whole cake, using all the cream.
Top I always sprinkle walnuts, so even my grandmother did or almond petals. Also I use those scraps that I had, crumble them into crumbs. Here is the ascetic decoration. But Napoleon - is a cake that does not require special. effects.
Boca then also you can sprinkle with nuts. Tortets send in the refrigerator overnight and there it is waiting for when it comes time and becomes tastier and tastier with each passing hour. Cook will not regret it.
