Cake with prunes and nuts
Cooking time720 min
A delicious cake for any celebration! Very often, this cake prepared on a chocolate sponge cake. But, in my opinion, tastes better if you cook it of two kinds of biscuit - light and dark. And the taste is brighter and the cut interesting. Try it!
For the shortbread for cake connect the eggs with the sugar and beat them for several minutes until a lush light weight. The mixture should increase in volume several times. To eggs well whipped, the bowl should be dry and free of grease.
The lush egg mixture gently, using a whisk, stir in the sifted flour with the baking soda and vanilla. For a long time do not need to interfere. Enough just stir in the flour, but the mass remained lush. Half of the finished dough pour into the baking dish with a diameter of 20-22 see
In the remaining batter mix in the cocoa.
Pour chocolate batter into another form of the same diameter. Put the dishes in the oven, preheated to 180 degrees for 30 minutes. Time be guided by your oven.
For the filling, take the required quantity of walnuts and chop them with a knife. Use a shredder is not necessary. Pieces of nuts should be felt in the cake. Then the nuts fry on a dry pan for a few minutes, before the appearance of characteristic odour. Don't forget to stir constantly. Pour roasted nuts from the hot pan into a bowl to cool them down.
Prunes pour boiling water for 1 minute. Then drain the water and rinse it in cold water. Then prune a little slice. Soak for a long time it is not necessary, as it will get soggy and lose their taste.
Ready the biscuits after baking, remove from the mold, cool and cut each into 2 layers.
To prepare the cream connect the fatty sour cream with the icing sugar and whisk all at a very high speed blender for a few minutes. The cream should be fluffy and tender. The more fat content of sour cream, the more stable will be the cream. But don't use sour cream in less than 25% - it just does not get whipped.
Sponge cakes soaked in sugar syrup or plain water. Over layers of sour cream and put in a stuffing of prunes and nuts. Slightly press the filling into the cream. Collect cake sandwiching layers of alternately dark and bright.
Assemble the cake and cover its top and sides with cream. Put the cake in the fridge for a few hours,so he froze and got soaked. For decoration, whip the heavy cream with powdered sugar and line the entire surface of the cake top and sides. Decorate the cake on the theme of your celebration. Nice treats!
