On Thursday evening I posted my blog address for the first time, and on Friday morning all I wanted was to celebrate! Thank you all 250 readers for visiting me that evening. So I baked myself my favorite cake, yummy.. I like to bake. Very much. It's a therapy for me. Big satisfaction... The original recipe was giving to me by a lovely lady in Long Island 3 years ago, and ever since it's a huge success in our family. How to:
First separate the eggs we need only the white .Put egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer. Whip, first on low speed, then slowly progressing to high speed, until soft peaks form, about 1 1/2 minutes.Slowly sprinkle the sugar a little at a time over the egg-white mixture, and whip until glossy peaks are formed, about 4 minutes. Draw 2 circles as big as your serving dish on a parchment paper, divide the meringue to two and make two nice circles on the paper with a flat knife or a spatula. That's the base of the cake and the middle. Bake on turbo 1 1/2 to 2 hours on 110 c. I like mine a bit chewy so I don't care if it's not dry all the way. Now the fun part comes, it's like playing lego with your kids..You have to build your cake! On a serving dish layer one meringue circle. Melt the chocolate in a microwave and spred one half of it on the meringue. Use half of he nuts (you can first crush them a little) on top of the chocolate, over the nuts use one half of the strawberries (cut them first ..) to cover the circle. Whip the heavy cream (make sure it's cold from the fridge) and spread half over the strawberries.Second part goes like that: the second meringue than chocolate than nuts than cream and on the top as many strawberries you want! Did I say corruption?! The best cake ever!
