I like this ring cake, filled with good and sunny ingredients, it reminds me the Middle-Earth. I hope it will delight even those are passionate about Tolkien’s saga: “The Lord Of The Rings”, “The Hobbit” and the first epic tale “ The Silmarillion”.
Well, here are the ingredients we’ll need.
- 100 g / 3 ½ oz flour plus extra for dusting,
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder,
- 80 g /2 ¾ oz sugar,
- 30 g /1oz unsalted butter, melted plus extra for greasing,
- incing sugar, for dusting.
For the filling:
- 20 g 0,¾ pine-seeds,
- 20 g 0,¾ hazel-nuts,
- 20 g 0,¾ almonds,
- 20 g 0,¾ raisins,
- 20 g 0,¾ walnuts,
- 20 g 0,¾ brown sugar,
- 20 g 0,¾ dark chocolate broken into small pieces,
- 1 tablespoon of lemon zest,
- 1 tablespoon of strawberry jam (or other you like).
Grease inside and bottom of the baking ring mould (or springform tin) with butter, add 2 tablespoon of flour, shake it so a thin layer of flour sticks to the butter and then tip out the excess.
Whisk white eggs on medium food processor until form firm peaks (hold the bowl upside down, it’s thick enough if doesn’t fall).
Prehead the oven at 150°/ 300 F.
Beat the yolks and sugar togheter by hand or in the food processor, until light and creamy; add the butter, melted and stir togheter well.
Afther the right time, you can check cooking by sticking the cocktail stick in the cake: if it comes out clean, it’s cooked, then turn it out and allow to cool completely before dust it with icing sugar.
