Verdens Beste Kake
Last week I baked the World's Best Cake(WBC) for the first time, in norwegian it is called "Verdens Beste Kake". People normally here in Norway bake their own breads, cakes and pastries. Not all of course can bake but at least they try. Norway is a very expensive place to live in so it is good to be a little practical in some ways.
I came here in the year 2007 and the only thing I could bake was "Pudding". Anyway I have my aunt, my second cousin and my sister who lives here too. They are good cake bakers. Once or twice a year, we gather for family reunions and the parties won't be complete without cakes. And one of their specialties is the WBC.
I got inspired by them plus my husband knows how to bake also so sometimes I help him assist when he's in the kitchen. I did some researching and I usually watch youtube so I could learn myself baking, yeah okay I admit almost everything.
Later on I tried baking apple cakes, carrot cakes, cheesecakes all by myself. First tries were never perfect so I tried over and over again until I succeeded.
It doesn't matter if you won't succeed for the first try right? Anyway there's always a second, a third or even more tries, just don't give up. Remember, quitters never win.
Let me share to you how I made the tasty cake.
|100g sugar, 4 eggyolks and 100g butter mixed together.|
|Blend with 100g flour and other ingredients(1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar, 4 tablespoons milk)|
Put it on the baking pan.
|4 Eggwhites and 1 tablespoon sugar.|
|This is how it looks after putting the eggwhite mixture over the dough.|
|Make the surface even.|
|Pour the almond nuts.|
|Bake it in the oven for about 25-30 minutes under 175 degrees.|
|Make the filling: 2 eggyolks, 2 dl milk, 1 1/2 corn flour, 1 tablespoon sugar.|
|Put up a little heat and stir it all the time.|
Turn off the heat when the mixture gets fluffy and set aside. 2 dl whipped cream with 1 tablespoon sugar and then combine together.
|The finished product!|
|The verdict? Look at how my brother-in-law smiles while eating his 2nd piece of cake..|
Not bad for the first try ;)
