Add the flour to the batter in 3 times; with the help of a rubber scraper carefully stir it from the bottom to the top. Do not mix it in a circle direction to avoid defoaming of the egg.

Pour the vegetable oil or melted butter into the cake batter and continue to stir from the bottom to the top.

Spread the parchment paper on the bottom of the baking pan and pour the cake batter into it.

Bend the baking pan on the kitchen counter really hard a few times to get the air out. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. To see if it is ready, use a toothpick to insert inside the center of the cake if it comes out clean then it is ready.

蛋糕的食谱是君之的, 几乎没有改变。 http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_4a5089ff0100cdet.html

配料

鸡蛋6个, 室温

低筋面粉200克,

细砂糖150克,

植物油或融化的黄油50克
烘焙:烤箱中层355 华氏度,15-20分钟

制作过程

准备一个稍微大点的盆,鸡蛋打入盆里。
再将白糖倒入。
取一个锅,锅里放入热水,把打蛋盆坐在热水里,并用打蛋器将鸡蛋打发。
随着不断的搅打,鸡蛋液会渐渐产生稠密的泡沫,变得越来越浓稠。

将鸡蛋打发到提起打蛋器,低落下来的蛋糊不会马上消失,可以在盆里的蛋糊表面画出清晰的纹路时,就可以了。(整个打发的过程约需要12分钟, 看你的打蛋器的马力有多大)
分3次倒入低筋面粉,用橡皮刮刀小心地从底部往上翻拌,使蛋糊和面粉混合均匀。不要打圈搅拌,以免鸡蛋消泡。
在搅拌好的蛋糕糊里倒入植物油或者融化的黄油,继续翻拌均匀。
在烤盘里铺上油纸,把拌好的蛋糕糊全部倒入烤盘。
把蛋糕糊抹平,端起来在地上用力震几下,可以让蛋糕糊表面变得平整,并把内部的大气泡震出来。把烤盘送入预热好355度的烤箱,烤15-20分钟,用牙签插入蛋糕内部,拔出来后牙签上没有粘上蛋糕,就表示熟了

组装:

让蛋糕完全冷却下来。

把蛋糕横切成3片

将第一个切片放在蛋糕垫上, 再放在蛋糕转盘上。

在第一片蛋糕上加一些奶酪霜, 在刮刀的帮助下, 均匀地抹在蛋糕上。然后将第二个切片覆盖上去, 重复同样的步骤, 直到所有3层蛋糕片都堆起来。使用一把刮蛋糕奶油专用刮刀把蛋糕的面和边都刮平。用你喜欢的浆果或水果装饰蛋糕。

Crepe Cake/千层蛋糕

I am so happy to share with you the recipe of this crepe cake I made for Thanksgiving. It was simply too good to be true! This time it is so good that I think I won’t miss Lady M anymore. Mille Crêpes Cake Recipe by Ellen Easton. I made some changes to the original  recipe.

Here is the link to the original recipe:  http://whatscookingamerica.net/EllenEaston/20-LayerCrepeCake.htm

img_0929

Ingredients:
Crepe Batter (see recipe below)
Pastry Crème Filling (see recipe below)
2.5 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Powdered (confectioners’) sugar

img_0944

Preparation:
The day before making and assembling the cake, make the Crepe Batter and the Pastry Crème Filling (see recipes below); refrigerate.

Crepe Batter:
6 tablespoons butter
3 cups milk
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose  flour
7 tablespoons granulated sugar
Pinch salt
In a small pan, melt the butter until lightly browned; remove from heat and set aside.
In a separate, small pan, warm the milk until steaming; remove from heat and set aside to allow to cool slightly.
In a large bowl using your electric mixer at a low speed, mix together the eggs, flour, sugar, and salt. Slowly add in the warm milk and browned butter. Pour the batter into a tightly-sealed container to refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Pastry Crème Filling:
1 egg
1 tablespoon low gluten wheat  flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon hot water
2 tablespoons heavy cream, whipped
In a small bowl, add egg, flour, sugar, and cornstarch; beat until smooth.
In a saucepan over low heat, bring milk almost to a boil (simmer). Immediately remove from heat and slowly whisk the milk into the egg mixture. Return all ingredients to the saucepan, while constantly stirring, for about 5 minutes, until thickened and just comes to a boil.
Remove from the heat. Add vanilla extract and hot water; stir until dissolved into the mixture. Set aside to cool until firm.
When the Pastry Crème has cooled, fold in the whipped cream.
Refrigerate mixture until thick (best if refrigerated overnight).

img_0939
Remove the prepared Crepe Batter from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature:

Using a nonstick pan over medium heat. Evenly distribute approximately ¼ cup of batter; swirl to cover the surface of the pan. Cook approximately 40 seconds or just until the bottom of the crepe becomes lightly browned. Using your clean fingers, gently and carefully flip the crepe over and Cook on the other side for 20 more seconds. Remove the cooked crepe onto a prepared baking sheet or a big plate.
Repeat this process until you have at least 20 perfect crepes. NOTE: You might need to prepare a few practice crepes in the beginning.

Remove the prepared Pastry Crème Filling from the refrigerator:
Whip the 2.5 cups of heavy cream with the 1 tablespoon sugar. Gently fold the whipped cream into the prepared chilled and thickened Pastry Crème Filling.

Assembly of 20-Layer Crepe Cake:
Place one (1) prepared crepe on a large cake plate.
With a small spatula or wide blade knife, completely cover the crepe with a thin layer of the pastry cream mixture (approximately 1/4 cup).
Cover with another dry crepe and repeat covering with the Pastry Crème until you have reached 20 layers.
The 20th crepe will be the last or top layer.

Refrigerate the cake for a minimum of 2 hours. Allow to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before serving. Dust with powdered (confectioners’ sugar).

IMG_3839

材料:

  • 4个鸡蛋
  • 砂糖 100克
  • 低筋面粉 80克
  • 牛奶 3大勺
  • 奶油30克
  • 可可粉20克
  • 朗姆酒一大勺
  • 柠檬汁/白醋一小勺

预热烤箱340度 烘烤时间30-40分钟。烤盘6寸。

做法:

1.开火把奶油融化到冒小泡关火加入牛奶混合, 慢慢的筛入可可粉。 搅拌到光滑无颗粒即可,加入朗姆酒搅拌均匀。

2.鸡蛋冷藏取出,蛋白蛋黄分开。蛋清放入干净无油的打蛋 盆里加入柠檬汁或白醋,像打戚风蛋糕一样打发蛋白。糖分三次加入将蛋白打发至硬性发泡,拉起打蛋头蛋白成尖峰状。

3.将蛋黄一个一个加入到打发好的蛋白里,等第一个蛋黄搅拌均匀后再放入下一个蛋黄,等加完全部的蛋黄后,高速打发大约3分钟,蛋糊成细密光泽状,提起打蛋头,观察蛋糊缓缓流下,滴下的蛋糊会保持同一姿势不会立刻散开就好。

4.低粉过筛入打蛋盆里,这时面粉在蛋糊上应该不会下沉。用切拌和从底部向上翻拌的手法,搅拌成无干粉的光亮糊状, 非常细腻。

5.取1/3面糊到巧克力溶液中,稍稍混合,再把巧克力混和物倒回在蛋糊里,继续搅拌均匀。

6烤模中喷点油,倒入巧克力面糊,在台面上顿几下烤模,震出气泡,放入烤箱中层,340度,30到40分钟。插入牙签拔出后光滑没有面糊即可。

做好的蛋糕放冰箱一两个小时就可以吃了。 我为了让它更好吃一点就加了些慕斯夹馅。

慕斯:

  • 1/4 杯) 熱水
  • 2 湯匙 無糖可可粉
  • 1/4茶匙即溶咖啡
  • 3/4杯 半甜的巧克力片
  • 1 杯 奶油
  • 1 湯匙糖

 

在一隻小碗,溶解可可粉和即溶濃咖啡粉在熱水裡。

在一個隔水鍋中,融化巧克力直到匀稠。關火,稍微冷卻。

在碗中用打蛋器攪拌濃奶油和糖直到硬态形式。

融化的巧克力和可可混合物攪拌。加入一半的奶油,攪拌后再加入剩餘的奶油,攪拌直至沒有白色的條紋。放入冰箱冷藏至蛋糕完全冷卻。

把蛋糕切成3等分, 在第一片蛋糕上均匀涂上奶油后放上第二片蛋糕然后依次操作。 把涂好的蛋糕放入冰箱冰几个小时后就可以吃了。

我 從不喜歡巧克力蛋糕,但幾天前看到了有个叫Shinee的人的蛋糕看起來很可口,美味,我今天迫不及待的做了。這裡是我做的蛋糕,真的是又濕潤又柔軟,即使像我這樣的人也吃的津津有味 !如果你是中國人的话建议少放些糖。我这次只放了一杯糖,还是觉的太甜。 我強烈推薦它給巧克力愛好者 !

Green Tea Crepe Cake/绿茶可丽蛋糕

IMG_3204

昨天又做了一次绿茶可丽蛋糕,觉得比上一次又好吃了一点。 基本上没什么大改变, 还是一样的方子。 今天就把改进的地方讲一讲。

https://caiqinchen.wordpress.com/2015/03/08/20-layer-green-tea-crepe-cake%E5%8D%83%E5%B1%82%E7%BB%BF%E8%8C%B6%E8%9B%8B%E7%B3%95/

  1. 你要做多大的蛋糕就用多大的不沾锅来做可丽饼, 这样做出的饼就不要切边, 每张大小一样,边也齐整。 当然如果你有做可丽饼的锅又另当别论。
  2. 不要让锅子太热, 因为太热的话,浆一倒进去的时候就开始凝固了,就会造成饼厚度不均匀,一会蛋糕做出来就有高有底不好看,我这次拿个大盆子装一大盆的水, 每次做完一片饼后就把锅底放水上碰一碰,让锅子降温。 做出来的饼又薄又均匀。
  3. 饼做的厚度会直接影响到蛋糕的口感, 但也不是说薄到跟蝉翼一样就好, 因为太薄的话, 就会变的跟湿纸张晒干以后一样,凹凸不平。 这种情况很容易发生在可丽饼的边缘, 如果锅子太热,等到浆晃到边上的时候,已经没什么量了, 结果边上就特别薄还坑坑洼洼不平整。
  4. 等饼都凉了以后要涂奶油时,奶油的量要涂的对,很多人都会中间涂的比较厚,最后做出的蛋糕就中间很厚边很薄, 蛋糕看起来斜斜的, 不够美观。 通常饼皮就已经中间相对厚一点了所以反而应该边上涂多一点点。 一边做的时候要一边观察。 奶油不能涂太多, 太多蛋糕会歪, 但如果太少, 不好吃也不好看。 我偏向少涂, 这次还是少了一点。
  5. 蛋糕做完放冰箱冰几个小时, 要吃时不要从冰箱拿出就吃, 这样不好吃。 要放室温20-30分钟后再吃, 软软绵绵的。

希望我的总结对大家有帮助。

Yesterday,I made another green tea crepe cake; it tasted a little better than last time. I didn’t change much and I was using the same recipe. Today, I am going to share with you my improvement technique.

https://caiqinchen.wordpress.com/2015/03/08/20-layer-green-tea-crepe-cake%E5%8D%83%E5%B1%82%E7%BB%BF%E8%8C%B6%E8%9B%8B%E7%B3%95/

  1. You have to use the same size non-stick pan as the size of the cake you want to make. So you don’t have to trim the edge. Each crepe you make is going to be the same size. Of course if you have a crepe pan, then you don’t need to worry about this.
  2. Do not let the pan gets too hot because if it is too hot, then when you pour the batter into the pan, it starts to form the crepe right away and it will cause the thickness uneven, then the cake will not look good. This time I got a big pot of water, every time when I finished making a crepe I let the bottom of the pan touch the water to cool it down.
  3. The thickness of the crepe will directly affect the taste of the cake, but it doesn’t mean a crepe so thin like cicada’s wing will do any good, because if it is too thin, then it becomes the same as you dry a wet paper, it looks uneven. This is most likely to happen to the edge of crepe, if the Pan is too hot, wait until the batter gets to the edge, there is no enough batter to form the same thickness as the center.
  4. After the crepes are cold and ready for cream, the right amount of cream for each layer is very important too. Usually most people will have more cream on the center of crepe, then the cake will lean to one side. Usually the center of the crepes is thicker than the edge, so we should put a little more cream on the edge. Too much cream will make the cake slanting, too little won’t taste good or look good. I usually put less than they should be.
  5. Refrigerate the cake for a few hours after it is done, DON’T eat it right away after you take it out of the refrigerator. It will taste a lot more tender and softer after 20-30 minutes in room temperature.

Hope my summary  helps.

Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake/巧克力草莓慕斯蛋糕

IMG_2720

前段时间看到一个视频是关于用bubble wrap来装饰蛋糕。看完之后一直念念不忘,上个礼拜六实在受不了了,就去买了材料来做。正好现在很多的berries上市,新鲜好吃还便宜。做出来后被朋友们夸的我飘飘然。今天写出来与大家分享。

我用的是100 克普通的扣子巧克力因为家里很多。建议还是去买Pastry chocolate. 可能因为巧克力不够好微波后很干,我加了2大勺的牛油,效果也挺好的。一定要记的做的时候Bubble wrap 一定要多剪一点要不然会不够长。我的蛋糕体是草莓慕斯的所以很软很易化,往上贴巧克力之前建议放冷冻箱冰上个15分钟。在贴完后再放冷冻箱冰10分钟才拿下来撕bubble wrap。 说实话没什么技术含量,但是做出来的效果很惊艳。

我把原视频也贴出来大家看了更易明白。试试看真不错。http://tiphero.com/bubble-wrap-cake-stunning/

A few weeks ago I saw a video about how to use bubble wrap to decorate a cake. After watching it, I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. And finally last Saturday, I went to buy all the ingredients and materials to make one of my own. Right now a lot of berries are on the market, they are fresh, delicious with really good prices. I got a lot of compliments from my friends for this beautiful chocolate strawberry mousse cake, so I would like to share with you today.

I use 100 gram regular button chocolate because I have a lot at home. Still I think it is a better idea to buy the Pastry chocolate. Probably because my chocolate was not good enough, it is very dry after microwaved, so I added 2 tablespoons of butter, the result was pretty good. Be sure to cut the Bubble Wrap long enough so it will wrap the whole cake. I made a mousse cake so it was very soft and very easy to melt. It is recommended to freeze the cake in the freezer for 15 minutes before you put on the chocolate, then put it back to the freezer for 10 more minutes before tearing down bubble wrap. To be honest with you it is nothing hard about this, but the result is stunning.

I also want to post the original video here for you to watch, Try it! It is really good. http://tiphero.com/bubble-wrap-cake-stunning/
