Holidays are over now, hopefully you had such a good time, as we did.
If you follow us on social media, you might know about our thank you gift that we offer you for all your support last year. Thanks so much for trusting us!
We wanted to give you a very special gift; A gift that that is able to draw smiles on many faces at the same time: On the face of the person giving it and on the face of the one receiving it… and why not?! On the faces of everyone eating it. :-)
We’ve chosen this easy to prepare recipe, full of Christmas or better said, winter aromas. We hope you’ll like it as much as we do. The recipe has been adapted for your kitchen and we kindly invite you to prepare it. It is simple and successful! Is there a better recommendation needed? :-)
Enjoy every moment of preparing because we can assure you that the cake won’t last!
Our Winter Spirit Cake
120 g honey
110 g sugar
300 g flour
12 g baking powder
120 ml oil
150 ml water
Preferred spices, like cinnamon, clove, cardamom, ginger
Preheat oven to 175 Celsius degrees.
Cream together honey, oil, water and 2 eggs.
Add flour, baking powder and spices to another bowl. Whisk until combine.
Add the mixture of flour to the creamed honey-oil-eggs-water.
Add sugar to previous.
Bake for 30 - 35 min., until lightly golden and firm. (The exact baking time depends on your oven. )
500 g of mascarpone
4 tablespoons of icing sugar
0.5 teaspoon of cinnamon
300 ml of whipping cream, enriched with vanilla
Homemade currant jam or any other sweet-sour jam, for example raspberry, sour cherry, plum.
Mix the mascarpone cheese until light and fluffy. Add in the icing sugar.
Whip the cream that was previously enriched with vanilla.
Whisk carefully the mascarpone cream with the whipped cream.
If the cream is a bit liquid, you can add 1 sheet of hydrated gelatine (2g).
And here comes the most interesting part of the cake: assembling and decoration.
First we cut the cake in 3 equal layers. We assemble the cake by smearing the first two layers with the marmalade and the mascarpone cream on top of it. (We´ve chosen a homemade currant jam, prepared by our beloved grandmother and the result was spectacular !!)
On the last layer that is the top of our cake, we only add mascarpone cream.
We cover the whole cake with the remaining mascarpone cream and let it rest in cold (refrigerator) for at least an hour, before decorating it.
In the photo, you can see our inspiration by festive stars, made out of ground cinnamon.
Delicious!!! So do enjoy it ;-)
May your parties always be happy and very sweet!
