Step by step instruction of cooking Cake "frontline"
Prepare the ingredients for the sponge cake.
Sesame is desirable to sort out, so not got a speck of dust. Then fry it in a dry pan to a gentle peach shade. Sesame must purchase required to try to be fresh and not bitter! Also when grilling do not be too Golden to do it... (the Photo distorts the color a bit, and sesame appears darker than it actually is).
Fully cooled sesame seeds need to grind in a coffee grinder.
Prepare the form for baking cakes. Cut three circles of parchment the diameter of the bottom of our form. Shape diameter 26-27 see
Wheat flour mixed with crushed sesame seeds.
Eggs divided into whites and yolks.
Whisk the whites with salt, gradually introducing sugar. Continue whisking until stable, white, fluffy mass.
Then one by one enter the yolks.
The mass changes color, but remains a lush and stable.
The egg mass enter the soda extinguished by vinegar and stir.
A mixture of flour and sesame seeds injected into the egg mixture in three stages. Be sure to sift! Since the sesame seeds are almost always taken lumps... and a sieve "fluffs" its structure. Too small a screen to do not recommend taking as sesame leaves are larger than flour and it will be difficult to sift through the too small cell.
Beat in flour mixture into the dough either with a spatula or with a mixer at minimum speed. I prefer blender... It comes out faster, and more evenly distributed the dry ingredients.
After the dough has introduced the last portion of flour mixture, the batter turns out that such consistency... About, like pancakes!
The weight of the dough obtained 1050 g. We have to bake three Korzh. Accordingly, the weight of the batch of dough for each shortcake - 350 g. place the test portion in the shape of the bottom of which is made with oiled parchment.
Distribute the dough evenly on the form. And put in a preheated 180 degree oven. Baked cakes quickly! Literally 10 minutes... Although given that ovens are different, then You may need slightly more or slightly less time. The top is flushed, check with a toothpick for readiness. The main thing is not to overdry the cakes!
Recoverable ready cake from the oven. Pass a knife blade across the rim so the cake is well separated from shape.
Put cake on towel and remove the parchment. Leave to cool down. In the meantime, cover the bottom of a fresh prepared leaf of parchment, spread the second portion of the dough and bake it in the oven.
While the second cake is baked first and is almost cold Turn it bottom down and leave to further cool.
So bake all three layers. Put them pile, zamatyvaem in a towel and leave to rest.
Let's cream. Prepare everything you need.
In a saucepan with a thick bottom, mix the sugar, starch, flour and pour the milk, stirring with a whisk to avoid lumps.
The resulting mixture is put on a small fire. Constantly stir!
Cook until thick. It happens pretty quickly! Literally to the point of boiling! Enter the vanilla and mix thoroughly with a whisk.
Now part of the custard needs to cool down. I prefer to shift the mass into a bowl and cover with cling film in contact.
While cakes and custard part of the cream will cool down, we boil the syrup for impregnation. Mix sugar and water. On low heat bring to a boil and cook for 3-5 minutes. Then remove from the heat and pour in cognac. You can do without brandy. This cake should not be wet, but if You and Your family like more wet cakes, the amount of syrup double.
Softened butter, beat with boiled condensed milk while continuing to whisk, introduce the cooled custard portion of a spoon. The resulting cream put into the fridge for 20 minutes to stabilize.
Cakes folded pile cover the top with a plate that is slightly smaller in diameter than the diameter of the cakes.
Cut the edges with a sharp knife. It is most convenient to use a knife, nail file. Cropping is useful to us yet, so take the time to give them away to household!
Impregnate cakes syrup. Cake, cake the bottom, impregnate on top, and the other two impregnated from the bottom.
Prepare the ground for the Assembly of the cake. In my case it is a round cooking Board on which I put a drop of syrup, thick paper towel.
Put the first Korzh. Under the cake carefully put strips of parchment, so that in the process of assembling the cake, not to stain the napkin. Of the total number of delay cream one scoop into a pastry bag, and the rest mass of the cream visually divide into three parts and one third of the spread on the first cake. Distributed evenly.
In the rest of the cream and mix up a tablespoon of cocoa. You can stir with a mixer, but you can with a silicone spatula or spoon.
On top of the first Korzh, lubricated with light cream, put the second cake and with the chocolate cream. On the plaster of the second layer takes half of the remaining cream.
Cover with the third cake layer soaked side down.
Cover cake top and sides with a thin layer of cream. Leave the cake put into the fridge for a couple of hours. And in the remaining cream add a spoonful of cocoa and mix well.
Trimming of cakes grind in the bowl of the processor.
Dark cream shift into a pastry bag with a nozzle "closed star". A light or cream in a pastry bag with a nozzle "round 3 mm" or you can just cut the tip of the bag to a hole 3 mm.
The cooled cake extract from the refrigerator. Sprinkle Boca crumbs. The excess crumbs sweep away with a brush.
On the surface of the cake we do the layout of the diamonds. In today's cake I the mesh will only do half, because the second part I want to accommodate the inscription.
Draw with light cream stripes. Brown and cream with a nozzle "closed star" make a rim around the entire circumference of the cake.
Then carefully extracted from the cake placed the parchment.
Finish making the surface of the cake.
Down at the base of the cake making side. That's all! Now, cake send in the refrigerator to cool down and serve. And you can leave on all night in the fridge. Definitely try to cook this famous cake! Amaze and inspire your guests and loved ones! A pleasant tea to You!
