Making a simple shortbread cake:
Step 1: Prepare the dough for the shortbread cake.Combine the chicken eggs with sugar and vanilla sugar in a deep bowl. Mix thoroughly and beat with a mixer or blender until a white mass is formed. After that add margarine at room temperaturewhisk all together again. Add baking powder for the dough, gradually pour the flour sifted through a fine sieve. Stir everything and start kneading a soft, not sticky dough. Gently roll the finished dough into a bun, cover the bowl with cling film and place on top in the refrigerator for half an hour.
Step 2: Prepare the cream for the cake.While our dough will rest in the refrigerator, we will prepare the cream. To do this, combine room temperature oil with vanilla sugar, add pre-boiled condensed milk (you need to boil it over medium heat in a pan with water so that the can of condensed milk is completely covered with water, no less than 2-3 hours). Mix and whip all ingredients with a mixer or blender until a light, uniform mass is formed.
Step 3: Roll out and bake cake layers in the oven.
Step 4: Make grapes and leaves from scraps of dough.
Step 5: Decorate the cake with balls, leaves and hot chocolate.Break a bar of chocolate into a piece, put in a small container and melt in a water bath. Later using regular toothpicks dip in it while it is still hot half of the total number of balls of dough (grape) and lay them on a flat surface covered with cling film. Leave them to dry so that the chocolate is completely frozen. After that, put on the last cream layer of the cake two bunches of grapes from chocolate and simple balls. Arrange grape leaves in random order. Melt the remaining chocolate again in a water bath, pour it into a pastry bag (if you don’t have one, you can replace it with a dense plastic bag, with a small hole in one of the corners). And draw on the cake a grape branch, tendrils and veins on the leaves.
Step 6: Serve a simple sand cake.The finished cake is best placed all night in the refrigerator for impregnation. During this time, the cakes will have time to soak well in the cream, and the cake will gain an unforgettable taste. Good appetite!
- - If you did not find a bag of baking powder for the test, then you can replace it with ordinary baking soda, slaked vinegar or lemon juice - 0.5 teaspoon.
- - Vanilla sugar can be replaced with vanilla, but it must be used in a smaller proportion, on the tip of a table knife.
- - Flour for kneading dough may need a little more or less than indicated in the recipe.
