Step by step instruction of cooking Cake and cream
The first thing I want to say that all the ingredients used for baking cakes should be at room temperature. This is a very important thing that you need to follow to get the perfect dough!
Begin preparation of the cake with the fact that launch into action our yeast. I use SAF-MOMENT.
Will heat the cream to 30 degrees, podnesem to them 2 tablespoons of sugar and yeast. Slightly thicken the consistency of 1 Cup of flour.
Leave the mixture for 20 minutes, to form such a foam "cap".
Now add another 250 grams of flour, knead liquid dough and put it in a warm place for 1 hour. I put in multiverse mode, the CONTROL temperatures of 35 degrees.
RUB the egg yolks with the remaining sugar and softened butter. Get a oil emulsion!
The dough has risen, combine with egg-oil mixture.
Add soaked and dried with a paper towel raisins, candied fruit and nuts (I love the yeast almond, but You can use your favorite nuts).
Aromatizers the dough with brandy, zest of one orange and a sachet of vanilla sugar!
Combine all ingredients, adding flour, knead the dough.
The dough is kneaded for at least 10 minutes is another important point to obtain an air-dough!
Cover the dough with a clean towel and leave to come for 1-1. 5 hours. The dough will increase in volume by 2.5-3 times.
Spread the dough on the oiled forms in 1/3 of the volume again and leave for proofing for 1 hour, covered with a towel.
Bake 40-60 minutes at 180 degrees depending on the size of the forms. Readiness check wooden skewer.
Of the stated amounts of the ingredients I got these 4 cakes!
Our fully cooled cakes and cover with Swiss meringue (as in my case), or icing, in its sole discretion.
