Cake with chocolate cream and tangerines - Recipes
As I already boasted on the blog's Facebook page, yesterday was my mother's name day. Obviously cake was required and I really wanted something with chocolate and fruit. And so the cake with chocolate cream and pineapple turned out.
6 tablespoons sugar
12 tablespoons flour
1 large pineapple
for dark chocolate cream:
300 ml dark chocolate
300 ml whipped cream
100 gr butter
1 sachet of gelatin
1 teaspoon esenta rom
for white chocolate cream:
100 ml white chocolate
80 ml whipped cream
80 ml butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
200 ml whipped cream
50 gr coconut flakes
For the countertop I divided all the ingredients in two and I prepared two thin countertops that I baked separately. Whisk the egg whites and then add the sugar. Mix until you get a strong and glossy meringue. Add the yolks.
Homogenize the composition.
Add flour and mix until you get a homogeneous dough.
Wallpaper the cake form with detachable edges with baking paper, spread the dough and level it with a spatula. (diameter of the mold 28 cm)
Cut the pineapple into small cubes and sprinkle it evenly over the dough.
Bake until lightly browned on the edges. Let both countertops set aside to cool.
Place the first top on a plate and place the adjustable cake ring around it.
We prepare dark chocolate cream. Heat the whipping cream but without bringing it to the boil. Add chocolate and rum and mix so as to obtain a fine cream.
Add the butter and mix. Normally there is no need for gelatin, the cream will harden without problems, I preferred to put it because I really like the fine texture that the cream gets. To prepare the gelatin, follow the instructions on the package and then mix it in the cream so that it is evenly distributed.
Pour half of the chocolate cream over the counter and put it in the fridge to harden on top. I put it in the freezer for 2 minutes and it hardened immediately.
We prepare white chocolate cream. Heat the whipping cream without bringing it to the boil and then add the chocolate and vanilla and mix until you get a fine cream. Incorporate the butter.
Pour the white chocolate cream over the dark chocolate cream and put it back in the fridge to harden a little.
Pour the remaining cream on top, cool quickly again, then place the second top with the pineapple side down.
Put the creams in the fridge to harden and then carefully remove the ring around the cake.
Beat the whipped cream until it hardens and coat the cake with whipped cream. Sprinkle the rooster on the entire surface.
Decorate with a spirit.
We cut slices with a very sharp knife that we will wipe before each slice.
Chocolate cake with oranges, the ultimate dessert for the holidays.
I've already shown you a recipe for chocolate tart, and now I'm back with this chocolate and orange cake for New Year's Eve, festive and very tasty. The countertop I used was a cocoa one, obviously homemade. Whatever you do, please do not buy countertop from the store. It's dry, tasteless and contains too many things that should never end up on a countertop. My recipe for leaf cake with cocoa it is very easy and comes out great every time. And the cream for the cake is simple and is made quickly. Orange jelly is natural. Made from orange juice, orange jam and gelatin.
Because I like simple cakes, I made this cake naked, meaning without decoration on the outside. I really like how it looks this way and you really don't need decor. Of course you can decorate it if you want. You can use chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse or any other decoration you want. After assembling the cake, you have to leave it in the fridge for the jelly to set. This may take at least 4 hours, but it is best to leave it overnight.
I always sift the flour, here together with the cocoa, and it seems as if the countertop comes out looser than if I simply put the flour with a spoon.
I separated the egg white from the yolk, beat the first one well with a pinch of salt, and I rubbed the yolks with the sugar until they became a frothy and quite light thing. Then over the yolks I put sifted flour with cocoa, grated chocolate and lemon peel. After homogenizing them, I put over a third of the egg whites, so that they dissolve a little and incorporate the rest of the egg white, which will be incorporated with a palette by movements from top to bottom. I moistened the form with water, put baking paper on the bottom and in the oven for about 30 minutes. now everyone knows their oven, I have the simple one, without ventilation or other things, so bake until the test with the toothpick, as I do.
How to prepare tangerine cream:
Drain the syrup mandarins, beat the whipped cream well with the powdered sugar, grind the mandarins until exhausted with the whisk or blender, then mix with the whipped cream (for those who want sweeter, be free to add more sugar, to me likes this fresher, to go with white beak cream)
The gelatin is hydrated in cold water (put it in a cup or bowl with enough water to pass over it) then heat in the microwave until it melts, add it to the tangerine cream.
How to prepare chocolate cream:
Melt the white chocolate on the fire together with the liquid whipped cream and leave it to cool (I do this the day before it cools well in the cold)
Whip the cream well with the powdered sugar, then froth the white chocolate and mix with the whipped cream. As above, proceed here with gelatin, moisturize, melt in the microwave and then tushti in cream.
The syrup is made from the juice that was drained from the mandarin compote, to which 150 ml of water is added, it is boiled well with 4 tablespoons of sugar, it is cooled before the cake is syruped.
Cut the top into slices, mount it on a plate in the following order: chocolate syrup, white cream, chocolate syrup, mandarin cream, chocolate syrup (ideal would be to use cake ring because the creams are still quite fluid ), after which it is cooled.
The cake with tangerines and white chocolate is decorated according to everyone's taste and is served cold from the fridge.

Over the butter put in a large bowl I poured the dissolved coffee and I added the chocolate glade 65% cocoa broken into small cubes, then I put the bowl in a bain-marie to melt them. When the chocolate and butter melted completely I took the bowl off the heat.

I poured melted chocolate with butter over the solid ingredients and mixed, then I added beaten eggs and mixed until the composition was homogenous.
I divided the dough into three trays with a diameter of 20 cm lined with baking paper and baked each tray in a preheated oven at 180 ° C for about 15 minutes or until it passed the toothpick test.
While the tops were baking, I prepared chocolate cream.
I melted milk chocolate, 65% cocoa bitter chocolate and 100 g butter in a bain-marie. When the chocolate and butter melted I turned off the heat and added 4 yolks.

I also used the rum syrup to syrup the tops, without exaggerating.
Assembling the cake it is very simple. Over the first syrupy top I put a layer of cream, I leveled, then I continued the operation in the same way as the rest of the countertops, but I took care to keep the cream and to decorate the cake on the edges.

Tips for successful cakes
Never rush when preparing the top or cream for a cake. It is very important to prepare all the ingredients, to weigh them and to have them at hand. One of the secrets is to combine cream, top and flavors in harmony. Never use more than two different flavors for a cake. Keep in mind that the tops with cocoa or chocolate go well with white or dark chocolate creams, with vanilla cream, and the white ones, simple, with intensely flavored creams, but also with vanilla cream. The vanilla aroma goes to the white tops, and the rum to the chocolate ones. Chocolate goes very well with lemon, orange or mint. A lemon or orange cream does not need other flavors for the countertop. You can syrup the dense countertops (those made only with eggs, sugar and flour), but you don't have to turn them into savarines. For vanilla and caramel cream, choose countertops that are moist without the need to be syruped (usually, these are those prepared with butter or oil and milk or yogurt).
Do not hesitate to use atypical countertops, such as those made with carrots, red countertops, with beets, or food coloring. Carrot cake goes perfectly with mascarpone cream with white chocolate, for example.
