This spectacular multi-layer cake recipe is perfect for sharing. Let’s see how to make it!
For the sponges:
- 4 eggs
- 150gr flower
- 150gr caster sugar
- 10gr baking powder
- OPTIONAL 30gr cocoa powder (if you wish to alternate the plain/chocolate layers)
For the filling: 1 package crème pâtissière, 500ml milk (or as needed)
For the decoration: Kit-Kats, a bag of chocolate chips
First of all, you need to prepare the cream for the filling. It is enough to cook it in the required amount of milk. Let it cool down. If you don’t find the crème pâtissière, any other solid/spreadable one is good enough, such as thick custard cream or vanilla pudding, at taste.
Then, the dough. That’s the hard part, the ingredients are for 2 sponges. Be careful to halve them in the following, and repeat it twice. Whisk the eggs with the sugar (use an electric whisker and keep going until frothy and for at least 15′!). Aside, mix the flour and the baking powder and sieve on the eggs+sugar, and mix very gently for a smooth and soft dough. If you prefer the double coloured layer option, while preparing one of the above sponges, add also the cocoa powder to the flour+baking powder. Bake each dough in a round pan (20cm diameter) in a (ventilated) oven for 30′ at 170°C and let the sponges to cool down.
You are now ready to create the cake. Put your preferred taste of sponge (plain or chocolate if you chose to make it) on a flat surface, cover with 1/3 of the cream, and sprinkle some chocolate chips on top. Repeat with the second layer. Cover now the edges of the cake with the remaining cream (it has to be cold and tough to hold on), and stick the kit-kats.
Et voilà, the cake is ready: see picture 😉
