At every holiday season families have their traditions. Whether it is Christmas, Easter, New Year, or any other etc. Most people have their traditions when it comes to what they have for dinner, desserts, cakes. In my family we are no exception. To day we have a cake that we have every year on the same day. This is our Easter cake. Here is the recipe. It is easy to make. Also you can make it well in advance and freeze it with the icing. All you have to do when defrosted, is to decorate with chocolate or whatever sweets you prefer. It is a rich cake, but it is only that once in a year.
Ingredients for the cake:
- 5 egg whites
- 200 g of ground almonds
- 100 g sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Beat the egg whites stiff with sugar. Put in baking powder and finally mix in ground almonds. Have a shape of approx. 20 cm. in diameter and fry at 175 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Ingredients for the icing:
- 5 egg yolks
- 1 dl. whipping cream
- 100 g sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- 150g of melted butter
Stir together all the ingredients, except the butter. You melt the butter in a separate pot. Place under medium heat and constantly stir until boiling. Remove the pot from the heat and pour in the melted butter while whipping strongly. Leave it for a few hours or overnight to cool completely.
Spread the cake and decorate. Store in a refrigerator.
Wish you all a Happy Easter!
