April 30, 2020



Just a simple cake that will make everybody very happy!

Equipment:

1 muffin pan or 1 small cake pan, greased and floured (or use cooking spray)

1 small sauce pan

1 toothpick

For the cake:

3 egg yolks

3 egg whites

½ cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted

1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

For the syrup:

½ cup sugar

¾ cup water

¾ cup spirit (whiskey, rum, brandy or anything you like)

For the garnish:

Sweetened and/or flavored whipped cream as desired

Berries as many as you like (if there is any syrup left, glaze the berries with it)

Mint leaves if you want

To make the cake:

Whisk the egg yolks vigorously with ½ cup of sugar until they turn whitish

In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff

Gently fold egg whites into the egg yolk mixture

Mix the baking powder and the sifted flour together and gently fold into the egg mixture

Place the mixture into the desired mold ¾ full

Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and delicious

When cooled, remove from the pan and poke several times with the toothpick

To make the syrup:

Mix all ingredients together and simmer for 5 minutes

Cool

To finish the cake:

Generously brush the cake with the syrup. Don't skimp! If you are courageous enough, you can even dunk the cake in the syrup

Garnish the cake with the whipped cream and decorate with the berries and, if you choose, mint leaves. Enjoy!
