How to make a simple biscuit cake for Easter
Making the dough. This is one of the easiest recipes for a classic butter sponge cake. First, break fresh, large eggs into a bowl, add sugar.
Next, take an electric mixer, beat eggs with sugar until fluffy. It is laborious manually, but quite doable, but it will take a lot of time. At this stage, add two teaspoons of 6% vinegar. You can substitute baking powder (baking powder) for baking soda and vinegar in this recipe.
We mix wheat flour with baking soda, sift, add to the liquid ingredients, knead the dough carefully, trying not to destroy the whipped mass and not to destroy the air bubbles formed.
Mix the ingredients of the dough well, pour in the melted and cooled butter in a thin stream, the dough is ready.
Making the filling. Of course, you can take a ready-made mixture from all the products listed for the filling, in various variations it is everywhere on sale. I prefer to pick nuts with dried fruits with my own hands and in the proportions that I like.
So, finely chop the figs and prunes. Finely chop the blanched peanuts. Cut the candied pineapple into cubes. In addition to candied pineapple peels, I add homemade candied peels of lemons and oranges to baked goods. A small amount of candied citrus rind gives the baked goods a bright flavor.
We mix all the ingredients of the filling, add the raisins.
We shift the filling into the dough, mix the ingredients with a spoon. The dough turns out thick, there is a lot of filling, if you prepare a large portion, it is even difficult to mix.
Grease the mold with a non-stick coating with softened butter, dust the butter with flour. For this baking, be sure to use a thick-walled baking dish, as dried fruits burn easily in thin-walled dishes.
We spread the dough in a mold, distribute it with a spoon so that it lies in an even layer.
Cooking the cake at 175 degrees for 40 minutes. Cool to room temperature
Cool down the Easter cake to room temperature.
Melt white chocolate and butter in a water bath, pour icing over the cake, decorate with pastry sprinkles.
