How to cook "Cake" Blizzard "
Put soft butter and sugar in a bowl.
Beat the sugar and butter with a mixer. Separate the yolks from the whites and add to a bowl.
Then beat the egg yolks, sugar and butter with a mixer. Add a level teaspoon of baking soda, quenched with vinegar or lemon juice.
Whisk the whites into a fluffy, stable foam and place in the dough. Toss with the rest of the ingredients.
Gradually add the sifted flour and very gently stir the dough with a spatula.
Put the prepared dough in a greased baking dish or cover with baking paper on the bottom of the baking dish.
Bake the cake in an oven preheated to 175 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Check readiness with a dry stick.
While the cake base is cooling, prepare the cream. Mix fatty sour cream with powdered sugar and vanilla sugar. I do not like very sweet cakes, 3-4 tablespoons of powdered sugar was enough for me. You are guided by your taste.
Cut the cooled cake into three parts. There will be three cakes. Grease each with cream and sprinkle with chopped walnuts, which must be pre-fried in a pan or roasted in the oven.
The turn came to decorate the cake. There are no dogmas here and everyone does it according to taste and availability of products. I offer my own version of cake decorating. I made a meringue from three egg whites, a glass of sugar and food coloring.
I made snowflakes from white mastic using a plunger (cutting).
I put the meringue on the top of the cake, and the snowflakes on the sides.
I melted the chocolate and applied patterns with the help of a culinary bag. She sprinkled the cake with chopped nuts.
Let the cake soak for 3-4 hours and can be served with tea.
If you do not have fatty sour cream, it is easy to make it from 10-15%. To do this, put the sour cream in cheesecloth and place on a sieve. Place the sieve in a bowl and put the sour cream in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning the serum will drain, and thick sour cream will remain in the gauze.
