It's Advent time! Just before the Nicholas-day, I told you last year the legend about St. Nicholas. This year I’ll reveal my wife’s favorite advent cake recipe - the cake is really delicious and I recommend it gladly. Especially if the nuts come from the own walnut harvest in the garden ...For the cake:
100g butter, 100g powdered sugar, 2 yolks (L-eggs), 2 tablespoon yogurt, 1 baking powder, 180 up to 200gr flour
For the icing:
ca. ½ jar of jam (e.g. bitter orange jam, apricot jam) or apple must, the white of 2 eggs (L-eggs), 80gr powdered sugar (to taste), 120gr milled walnuts
Stir the butter with the sugar until frothy. Add the egg yolks and the yogurt under constant stirring. Finally, mix the baking powder and the flour. Bake the pastry in a round baking form (22cm), mapped out with baking paper (or butter and flour) at about 180 ° C.
Sprinkle the jam / apple must with a kitchen brush thinly on the finished, still warm cake.
Whip the egg whites with the icing sugar to white “egg snow”. Carefully stir the milled walnuts and distribute the egg-nut mixture evenly on the cake. Bake at 160 degrees Celsius until the snow white mass gets a golden yellow crust.
Allow to cool, put on warm AM artmoda sheepskin slippers and to enjoy to coffee or tea. Good Appetite!
