Making poppy seed cake with meringue:
Step 1: prepare the egg whites.
Pour the egg whites into a deep bowl and, using the mixer at medium speed, beat the ingredient until a light foam appears. Immediately pour the sugar in small portions of this and at the same time continue to whisk everything. At the end, add vanillin and beat the egg whites until they peaks and the sugar is completely dissolved. Attention: so that the component beats better, be sure to put it in the refrigerator shortly before. It is cold proteins that become air faster.
Step 2: prepare the meringues.
Cover the baking sheet with baking paper or food foil. Lubricate with a small amount of vegetable oil, using a pastry brush. Now, using a tablespoon, spread the whipped whites with sugar at a small distance from each other and put the baking sheet in the oven to cook at a temperature 100 ° C during 90-120 minutes. The component for this period of time should dry well in the oven. After that, using the kitchen tack, we take out a container with meringues and transfer part of the cake to a separate plate to cool to room temperature.
Step 3: prepare the dough for biscuit with poppy seeds.
In an empty bowl, break the egg and add the chicken yolk. Pour sugar into the container and, using the mixer at medium speed, beat the ingredients to a homogeneous mass without sugar grains at the bottom of the bowl. After that, add sour cream and condensed milk. Again, whisk everything until smooth.
Now measure out the right amount of soda with a teaspoon and pour this component into a tablespoon. Gently add a drop of vinegar to it and mix everything together with a small spoon so that the ingredients begin to interact and due to this a foam forms, which begins to drain into a bowl with a mass for the dough. Again, beat everything with improvised inventory. At the end, we sift the flour through a sieve directly into a common bowl and simultaneously whisk the mixture with a whisk so that no lumps form. We should get a liquid dough. At the end, pour the poppy into it, whisk everything lightly and we can proceed to the process of baking the cake itself.
Step 4: prepare the sponge cake.
Grease a baking dish with a small amount of vegetable oil with a pastry brush. Now lightly beat the dough with a whisk and pour into a container. We put in the oven to cook at a temperature 180 ° C during 20-25 minutes. Attention: after the allotted time, it is necessary to check the readiness of the cake. To do this, pierce it somewhere in the center with a wooden stick. If it is not wet and with pieces of wet dough, then the dough is already well baked and you can turn off the oven. If not, then you need to extend the time yet for 5-7 minutes.
We shift the finished cake onto the grate from the oven and set aside to cool to a warm state. After that, using a knife, cut lengthwise into two halves.
Step 5: prepare the cream.
In a deep clean bowl, spread the boiled condensed milk and softened butter. Attention: the last ingredient must be soft, so we take it out of the refrigerator in advance, cut it into small pieces with a knife and set it aside. Beat everything with a mixer at medium speed until a homogeneous, dense mass is formed. Everything, the cream is ready!
Step 6: prepare the poppy seed cake with meringues.
So, for starters, put the first cake on a flat plate for serving and grease with a small amount of cream, using a pastry shovel. After that, we spread the meringue with the second layer and also grease it with cream. The third layer we will have is the remaining half of the cake. We spread it on top of the meringue and now on all sides carefully lubricate everything with cream. Attention: you can decorate the cake if desired. For example, it may be chocolate icing or melted chocolate with coconut. Put the prepared poppy seed cake with meringue to the side and let it soak for 2-4 hours.
Step 7: serve the poppy seed cake with meringues.
Before serving, cut the poppy seed cake with meringue with a knife and serve it with a dessert table along with hot tea or coffee. Baking is not so tasty, but simply amazingly unusual and fragrant. It is moderately sweet, very satisfying, interesting to taste. Try it and see for yourself!
- Meringues can be prepared in the form of cake. To do this, put it in a baking dish, corresponding in diameter to the biscuit cake itself. Dry at 100 ° C for 2 hours.
- You can not prepare the poppy in advance, but fill it with plain water and add 1 teaspoon of sugar, mix everything well and set aside for 10 minutes. After that, carefully drain the water, and dry the poppy in a dry hot pan.
- For the preparation of cream, it is best to use boiled condensed milk of your own preparation. The taste of this component is much richer. Thus, we put the jar in a deep pan and fill everything to the top with plain cold water. We put the container on medium heat and after boiling we cook for 3 hours. From time to time we check the water level and, if necessary, add liquid to the pan. After time, we cool the boiled milk and can prepare the cream.
