How to cook?
Bake cakes first. Beat in a deep egg bowl, add sugar. Beat first with a whisk so that the whites mix with the yolks, then with a mixer set at medium speed.YouTube | Natalya Bun
When light foam forms, pour in milk and butter and whisk.YouTube | Natalya Bun
Sift the flour into another container, add vanilla, baking powder and cocoa and mix until smooth.YouTube | Natalya Bun
Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the beaten eggs. To do this, sift them through a sieve directly into the egg mass in 2-3 doses, stirring each time with a whisk.YouTube | Natalya Bun
Divide the dough on the eye into 3-4 pieces. Heat the pan (about 22 cm in diameter) and lightly grease it with butter. Pour one piece of dough into the pan so that it spreads evenly over the surface. Bake each cake under the lid, for 2-3 minutes on each side, at a power lower than average.YouTube | Natalya Bun
While the cakes cool down, prepare an impregnation for them. Pour water into a small saucepan, add sugar, bring to a boil, stirring with a whisk, then turn off the hotplate and let the syrup cool.YouTube | Natalya Bun
Cook the cream. Cream must be cooled in advance in the refrigerator. Pour them into a bowl, add powdered sugar and whisk with a mixer until resistant peaks. Add mascarpone and beat with a mixer for about a minute.YouTube | Natalya Bun
Collect the cake. Cover the plate with baking paper. Put the first cake on it, soak it with syrup and brush it with cream.YouTube | Natalya Bun
Place the next cake on top and repeat the procedure. When the turn of the last cake comes, soak it in syrup, turn it over and put it on the cake. Grease the sides of the cake with cream.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave, adding cream or butter if desired. Spread the icing on the cake. Chocolate smudges on the sides will look impressive.YouTube | Natalya Bun
From above, decorate the cake with the remnants of the cream with a syringe.YouTube | Natalya Bun
Cake send in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Now you do not have to spend at the stove all night before the holiday, and the guests will still admire - ah yes the hostess, ah yes the cake!
