Before we dive into the nitty-gritty of the preparation process, let’s take a look at what you’ll need to make this magical cake:

  • For the Cream:
    • 1 egg
    • 1.7 ounces (50 g) of caster sugar
    • 0.4 ounces (10 g) of vanilla sugar
    • 0.4 ounces (15 g) of corn starch
    • 1 cup (250 ml) of milk
  • For the Dough:
    • 2 eggs
    • 3.5 ounces (100 g) of caster sugar
    • 1 pinch of salt
    • 3.5 fluid ounces (100 ml) of milk
    • 1.7 fluid ounces (50 ml) of sunflower vegetable oil
    • 6 ounces (170 g) of flour
    • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
    • 1.7 ounces (50 g) of ground almonds
    • 1.7 ounces (50 g) of almond flakes
    • Powdered sugar

Preparation of Cream

Let’s start by preparing the creamy goodness that will elevate our cake to new heights:

  1. Break the egg into a suitable saucepan. Add the caster and vanilla sugar, cornstarch, and milk. Use a whisk to homogenize the ingredients.
  2. Place the pot over medium-high heat and stir continuously until the cream thickens. Once done, pour it into a glass container and cover it with food film. Allow it to cool completely.

Preparation of Dough

Now, onto the dough – the foundation of our cake:

  1. Break the eggs into a deep bowl and add sugar and salt. Use a mixer on high speed to beat the ingredients until they become foamy and whitish. This might take around 3-4 minutes.
  2. Incorporate the milk and vegetable oil into the mixture by pouring them in a thin stream while continuing to mix.
  3. Sift the flour and baking powder directly into the bowl. Add ground almonds and homogenize the dough with a silicone spatula. Mix everything well until you achieve a homogeneous and creamy dough without any lumps.

Baking the Cake

With the cream and dough ready, it’s time to bring our cake to life:

  1. Line a rectangular baking dish with parchment paper and pour the dough into it, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle almond flakes on top for that extra crunch.
  2. Transfer the cooled cream into a pastry bag and apply a mesh of cream to the surface of the dough by pressing it down with your hand.
  3. Bake the dessert in a preheated oven at 170°C for approximately 40 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Serving and Enjoyment

Congratulations, you’ve just made a delicious cake in record time! Now, all that’s left to do is:

  • Remove the cake from the oven and transfer it to a plate.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top for a finishing touch.
  • Cut it into portioned pieces and savor every mouthful with great pleasure!
