Cake with 2 tops and lemon cream cheese

Cake One night in Venice was my starting point in making this recipe . I could have baked two separate countertops, but why extend it if it works very well anyway? 😀

Cake with 2 tops and lemon cream cheese

ingredients
  • For the cocoa top:
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • a teaspoon tip baking powder
  • esenta de rom
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • For the walnut countertop:
  • 5 egg whites
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 5 tablespoons ground walnuts
  • 5 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 2 drops of almond essence
  • For lemon cream:
  • 5 yolks
  • 100 g old powder
  • 2 tablespoons starch
  • 400 ml of milk
  • 200 g butter
  • lemon juice to taste

Preparation Cake with 2 tops and lemon cream:

Cocoa top:

Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Add the sugar and mix until you get a dense and shiny foam. Rub the yolks with oil and rum essence over the egg whites and mix lightly. At the end, incorporate the flour mixed with baking powder and cocoa, mixing lightly with a spatula, with movements from bottom to top.

Walnut countertop:

Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Add the sugar and mix well until you get a glossy foam that holds well to the blades of the mixer and makes spikes to the touch. Add the almond essence, ground walnuts and breadcrumbs and mix lightly with a spatula with movements from bottom to top.

We pour the composition in a tray (40/28 cm) lined with baking paper. On top we put the composition with cocoa, leveling gently with a spatula. Bake over medium heat for about 20-25 minutes, depending on the oven. Leave to cool on a grill, along with the baking paper.

Lemon cream:

Mix the yolks, sugar and starch well until a homogeneous cream is obtained. Pour the milk little by little, stirring constantly, so that no lumps form. Put the pot on low heat and stirring constantly with a whisk, boil the composition until it thickens, like a pudding. Put the diced butter in the hot cream. Mix well until smooth. Put the bowl aside, let it cool a bit, add the lemon juice to taste, then let it cool.

We cut the top into 3 strips equal in size. We also fold the cream into 3 parts and put it between the worktops. Let the cake cool for (at least) an hour, then slice.

Good appetite! 😉
