Today I want to offer you one of the most unique cakes of the Soviet past. We can say that this is one of the masterpieces of the Soviet confectioners. The first time I had a chance to try this cake in Moscow in the mid-80s. the Second time - 7 years ago in Chelyabinsk. After returning home, I started to dig all the cooking sites looking for a recipe, but the cake is so difficult to prepare at home that for a long time, all my search results didn't bring. Apparently nobody wanted to risk it. But after a long search - a miracle! in one of the cooking forums I came across the coveted recipe. After reading it, however, depressed - too difficult. But, on reflection, decided. Alas, the first "damn", as usual, turned out lumpy, and, at the final stage when it was necessary to color the cake under the grill. I put it in the oven, and she started to wash the dishes. Casually, turning his head to the plate, I, to my horror, saw that the oven is blazing fire!!! In General, the top was completely charred. Had to cut what was supposed to be the most delicious. However, my family has stiskala for a sweet soul that remained, and were extremely satisfied. And still the cake didn't let me rest. Week I weighed everything "over" and "against" and took the risk again. The second attempt succeeded, but the desire to repeat substantially reduced. Was supposed to be a very significant occasion, I once again ventured into this culinary feat. Just make a reservation: if your oven has no functions "grill" or "convection", at worst, confectionery burner, you should not even start since the final stage is the process of caramelization. The first part of cake making is quite simple, familiar to most Housewives. Here is the second part advise to be patient and gather the maximum: it is not for the faint of heart! I will try to elaborate on the process of making the cake, but most likely will not be able to consider everything. If the recipe you are interested in, write that it is unclear I will clarify.
