Grandpa's Cake Recipe of 02-10-2019 [Updated on 02-10-2019]
There grandfather's cake is a variant of the best known grandmother's cake. This year to celebrate grandparents' day I thought about preparing this fantastic tart and I decided to try Knam's recipe. The result, as you can imagine, is a real bomb! A crumbly cocoa shortcrust pastry shell encloses a creamy and super chocolatey heart, while the almonds on the surface, which are lightly toasted during cooking, offer a spectacular contrast of texture and flavor.
In short, if you too want to celebrate grandparents properly or simply if you want to try a chocolate delight, this one grandfather's cake is the recipe for you;)
How to make grandpa's cake
First prepare the chocolate cream: whip the egg yolks with the sugar, then add the flour and cinnamon and finally add the hot milk.
Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and simmer, stirring constantly, until it reaches a fairly firm consistency.
Remove from the heat, add the grated chocolate and stir until it is completely melted (thanks to the heat of the cream itself).
Move the cream into a large bowl, cover with cling film and let it cool completely.
In the meantime, prepare the shortcrust pastry: work the butter into a cream with sugar and salt, then add the egg yolks first, then the flour with baking powder and cocoa.
Knead quickly until you get a homogeneous dough, then wrap with cling film and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Once the cream is completely cold and the pastry has finished resting, you can proceed with the composition of the tart.
Divide the pastry into 2 parts and roll them out into 2 sheets.
Use one to line the greased mold, covering the edges well and cutting off the excess.
Fill the shell with the chocolate cream, leveling the surface well.
Cover everything with the second sheet of dough, eliminating the excess and sealing the edges well with the other sheet of dough.
Brush with egg white, then decorate with almonds to taste.
Then bake in a preheated convection oven at 180 ° C and cook for about 40 minutes.
Grandpa's cake is ready, let it cool completely before serving.
