COMPLEXITY

Once upon a time, long before Instagram was invented, the “Cuisine” magazine was published every week. I bought every single publishing, just to look at beautiful cake, desserts, and main dishes’ pictures. I did not dare to cook anything, until I saw the “Black Forest” cake. The cutout was so appetizing and chocolatey, and a combination of juicy cherries with delicate cream, and swirls of white chocolate on top. An unearthly view. Then I understood that I want to make this cake. The time to act has come at last.

 

I suggest you do the same.

The method of preparing biscuits

Whip eggs with sugar until the mass increases 4-5 times. If you run your finger over the surface and the mark does not disappear immediately, it means that the mixture is ready. Carefully add flour, sifted with cocoa, in three steps. Then add butter.

At the end, mix with a silicone spatula, especially passing around the bottom of the bowl. Divide the mass into three molds.

Bake three cakes in 18 cm diameter rings for 25 minutes at a temperature of 180°C.

Take the cakes out of the form and let them stabilize for 6-8 hours.
