Ileana cake

Yum

  As weird as it might sound, I just realized how some cakes have strange names. As I said in another post I have no idea how cakes are named. Probably after the person that made for the first time that specific combination of ingredients.




  Okay, whatever. Here are the ingredients for the cake sheets:
- 8 egg whites
- 300 gr sugar
- 300 gr ground nuts
- 4 spoons flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

  Beat the egg whites, then slowly add the rest of the ingredients and mingle all well. From the resulted composition, bake 3 cake sheets

  For the cream, you need:
- 8 egg yolks
- 4 spoons milk
- 4 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- 300 gr powdered sugar
- 250 gr butter

   Boil on bain marie the egg yolks with the powdered sugar, vanilla sugar, and milk. After it's boiled, add the butter and mingle it well. 

Putting together the cake is very easy, just fill the cake sheets with the cream and the last layer should be the cream. On top, you can decorate with some chocolate. Enjoy
