Cacao cake with white chocolate whipped cream

Easy and light goodlooking cake

What we will need

  • 4 eggs whites snow
  • 4 eggs yolks
  • 100 ml sunflower oil
  • 3 tablespoon of cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoon of caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of cake flour
  • 2 whipping cream (at least 33 % fat, 250 ml each)
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • 2 oranges

How to do it

Whisk egg whites snow (before you mix it put into egg whites dash of salt, snow will be stronger. Trick how to know when the egg whites snow is done: When you turn over the bowl and everything stays in, it’s done!), before the snow is totally done put into the sugar and finally whisk it, till it’s done. Put inside the snow eggs yolks, sunflower oil, cacao and flour. Lightly whisk it (with handy mixer) to compact pastry.

Now you can preheat the oven for 180 degrees. Prepare for yourself spring form cake (diameter 24 cm ) and put on the bottom baking paper and butter (better use the sunflower oil) the edge of spring form and dust with little flour to help the cake release more easily. Now you can recast pastry from the bowl to spring form. Finally put into a preheated oven and baked for 25 or 30 minutes (If you want to know, the pastry is done. Take wood skewer, put inside the pastry and if the pastry is not stick on the skewer, it’s done). Let the cake cool down and move to whipping cream with white chocolate.

Chocolate broken into smaller pieces put into the heat-resistant bowl and place it over a pot of gently simmering water. Bowl does not touch the surface. Chocolate begins to melt quickly, stir occasionally until you get a smooth mass. In another bowl whisk whipping creams to final whipped cream and then mix it (manually, lightly) with white chocolate. Now just stratify on the cacao cake with the way you like it, put orange fillets in the middle (you can find out in video how to do orange fillets) and if you have rest of meringues from Christmas like I had, use them for decoration (but it’s not totally necessary). Try also fruits you like for decoration – strawberries, raspberries or blueberries...
