Mother’s Day is fast approaching and you still need a cake for the holidays? Our cake you are the best is perfect for that!
Ingredients for 20 servings:
150g softened butter
150 grams of sugar
3 eggs (M)
200 grams of flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
5 tablespoons of milk
2 sheets of gelatin
400 grams of whipped cream
150 g fresh cream
2 packets of vanilla sugar
75 ml elderflower syrup
200 grams of raspberries
150 grams of blueberries
100 grams of strawberries
1 package of chocolate decor alphabet
1 tsp chopped pistachios
Approximately per serving:
15 grams of fat
20 grams of carbohydrates
3 grams of protein
45 minutes (plus 120 minutes cooling and 15 minutes cooking)
And here’s how it’s done:
Mix the butter, sugar and a pinch of salt. Add the eggs one at a time. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees with air circulation.
Mix the flour and the baking powder, incorporate into the butter cream with the milk.
Place the dough on a small greased deep baking sheet (approx. 28 x 29 cm) and spread out evenly. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Leave to cool after cooking.
For the cream, soak the gelatin in cold water. Whip cream, crème fraîche and vanilla sugar until stiff.
Squeeze the gelatin, gently dissolve it, incorporate the syrup. Fold some of the cream into the gelatin, then stir into the rest of the cream.
Spread the cake with the cream. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.
Wash and sort the raspberries and blueberries. Wash, hull and finely chop the strawberries.
Cover the edge of the cake with the fruit. Create a lettering with the chocolate letters.
If necessary, make a flower of blueberries and raspberries and sprinkle pistachios on the cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
May 8th is Mother’s Day and on this occasion we would like to present you our cake You are the best. A recipe with which you can create a very special surprise. The soft cake is covered with a delicate cream and decorated with fresh fruit. In the middle, put the words “You are the best” in edible letters. If you want to be particularly creative, you can form a flower with raspberries and blueberries and place the “stem” with pistachios. Thanks to its practical shape, the you-are-the-best cake can be perfectly cut into bite-size pieces. This way everyone is guaranteed to get something. Mom gets the first piece!
We really can’t honor our moms enough. One public holiday a year is not enough! If you want to express your gratitude even more, make these magic raspberry cream muffins. But if you want something smaller, you might like these heart-shaped stuffed lollipops. A lovely cake would also be this Ruby Chocolate Charlotte Cake. This vanilla bread cake would be a little easier. For the experienced home bakers among you, though, this rose cake would be something.
