Savoy Cake

Who would have thought that a cake as fussy as a Savoy Cake can survive the turmoil of centuries, nearly unscathed by the frivole of culinary trends.

As I lately have some time, I was looking on the internet yesterday. Looking to find fresh, stirring thoughts, inspirational recipes that I have never tasted before, to amaze my family with. Looking for a while unfortunately could not come across too many interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this yummy and easy dessert by accident over Suncakemom. It looked so fabulous on its pic, it required fast actions.

It was not difficult to imagine how it is created, how it tastes and just how much my husband might like it. Mind you, it is very easy to keep happy him when it comes to treats. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyway, I got into the site and followed the detailed instuctions which were accompanied by great images of the procedure. It just makes life quite easy. I could imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to shoot pics down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you ordinarily have gross hands therefore i highly appreciate the commitment she put in to make this blogpost and recipe easily followed.

That being said I am encouraged to present my own, personal dishes in a similar fashion. Many thanks the thought.

I had been tweaking the main mixture to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must mention it turned out an awesome outcome. They loved the flavor, the thickness and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the midst of a stressful week. They ultimately asked for lots more, many more. Thus the next occasion I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m likely to twin the volume to keep them pleased.

Preheat oven to 300°F / 150°C and prepare mold by smearing butter in it.

Separate egg whites from yolks and put them into two different medium sized bowls. (How to separate egg yolk from white)

Beat yolks with a mixer on high speed until light yellow. Add sweetener and orange and lemon zest to the beaten yolks.

Clean beaters properly before using it to whisk egg whites. Make sure they are spotlessly clean otherwise egg whites may won’t form peaks. Beat egg whites on high speed until soft peaks form. This will take a couple of minutes but it doesn’t need to be as hard as to be able to hold a spoon on its edge. Add corn starch to the beaten whites. It will support the structure of it.

Alternating between water and flour add them to the yolks. Sift the flour and the baking powder with the yolks until they are completely incorporated. We can do this with the mixer without problems. We are looking for a soft mixture here. Maybe a little bit less dense than honey so if we feel that it’s hard to mix then add some water to it one tablespoon at a time.

Use a spatula to fold the whites into the yolks-flour mixture little by little. Avoid stirring, we are trying to achieve a consistent yellowish light texture here without breaking the fluffiness of the egg whites too much.

Pour the mixture into the mold and put it into the preheated oven.

Bake it for about 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Don’t open the oven’s door during the first half an hour of baking ever!

Get cake out when top is golden brown.

After taking it out of the oven, flip it onto a cooling rack and let it cool down before slicing it up or it could collapse quite badly.
