Savoy Cake Recipe

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 recently have a little time, I had been searching on the internet the other day. Looking for new, interesting thoughts, inspirational recipes that I’ve never tasted before, to treat my loved ones with. Searching for a while yet couldn’t come across lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this fabulous and simple treat by chance. The dessert seemed so yummy on its photo, that required rapid action.

It was not so difficult to imagine just how it’s created, its taste and how much my husband might love it. Actually, it is rather simple to impress the guy in terms of desserts. Anyhow, I visited the blog: Suncakemom and then used the comprehensive instuctions which were coupled with superb graphics of the procedure. It just makes life much easier. I could suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you ordinarily have sticky hands therefore i sincerely appreciate the commitment she placed in for making this post and recipe conveniently followed.

Having said that I am empowered to present my own dishes similarly. Many thanks the thought.

I was fine tuning the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to say that it was an awesome outcome. They enjoyed the flavor, the overall look and loved having a treat such as this in the middle of a busy week. They ultimately requested even more, many more. Hence next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I am likely to multiply the quantity .

The origanal Savoy Cake Recipe is from SunCakeMom

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.
