White chocolate cake

I felt that it was the moment for a fancy cake. But I wanted a simple one that I can make in steps: Thursday evening the cake dough, Friday evening the filling and Saturday morning the assembled cake. Looks like this ..

Ingredients dough:
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablesppons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar

Dough preparation:
  1. Beat the egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer. Add the sugar and vanilla sugar a little at a time.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the egg yolks with the 2 tablespoons of oil
  3. Pour the egg yolks in the white eggs and mix slowly with up-down movements
  4. Add the flour and the baking powder
  5. Pour the resulting composition in a cake pane oiled with butter and dusted with flour.
  6. Preheat the oven and put the dough inside the oven around 30min at 180°C. Try the dough with a stick to see if it gets out clean, and if yes, then it's done. I have a small cake pan of 15cm and the dough was cooked quite quickly.

Ingredients for the white chocolate filling:
  • 500g of white chocolate broken into small pieces
  • 500g whipped cream

 Preparation of the white chocolate filling:
  1. Heat the whipped cream in a pan.
  2. Add the chocolate and stir until melted. It doesn't look like the appropriate consistancy for a cake filling but after the next steps will be OK. The colour will be also brighter.
  3. Let it cool and put it in the refrigerated where it should remain until the next day. The cream will become harder during this time
  4. The next day, take it out from the refrigerator and use an electric mixer until it becomes more creamy.

Assembling the cake:
  1. Cut the dough in 4 or 5 slices.
  2. Put the first slice, moist it with coco milk and add a filling layer. Add a second slice, moist again, add the filling and continue like this until all the slices are used. I used about 150g of coco milk but also sweeten water can be used.
  3. With the remaining white chocolate cream decorate the outside cake. I used white and dark chocolate decorations this time.
The white chocolate I used was very sweet so the cake was the same, and there was no need for extra sugar. Mmmm.. mniam mniam.
