Recipe Cake top with cocoa
Today I brought you a cocoa cake top recipe, a recipe that I consider perfect and that I often use for the cakes I make or for various cake recipes.
Cakes are not missing from the menu of birthdays or holidays spent with family or friends. The diversity is quite large, starting from the classic cake with cocoa, to the multi-layered ones and beautifully decorated by the master confectioners, with creams of all kinds, with whipped cream or fruit, syrupy or not, with various glazes.
The classic cake top is the pandispan one. It can be prepared a few days in advance and kept in a cool, dry place.
cake top with cocoa powder without egg
- 6 eggs
- 6 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- esenta de rom
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (optional)
Preparation Cake top with cocoa:
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt, at the maximum speed of the mixer. When the foam has hardened well, add the powdered sugar and mix until the foam becomes dense and shiny. The egg white foam will hold well on the mixer blades.
Separately rub the yolks with the oil and rum essence, until we obtain a stable emulsion. We pour this emulsion over the egg whites. If the egg whites are beaten well and correctly, the emulsion will remain on top, it will not be left at the bottom. We turn the mixer to the lowest speed and we easily homogenize the composition.
Sift the flour together with the cocoa and baking powder over the egg composition. Put the mixer aside and mix everything with a spatula, lightly, with movements from bottom to top.
Baking powder is not mandatory, but you can add it for safety. 😉
We pour the composition in a tray (24 cm in diameter) lined with baking paper and put the tray in the oven over medium heat, for about half an hour, until the top becomes firm to the touch. It can be tested with a toothpick.
Remove the top on a grill, with the bottom up, remove the baking paper and leave to cool.
The top obtained is cut horizontally into 2 slices. If you want a higher top, bake in the same number of eggs in a smaller shape, 22 cm in diameter.
I hope it will be useful!
