French Food Friday...le gâteau magique



recipe and photo from here

Bonjour mes belles,

This weeks recipe is for le gâteau magique and the reason that it is called this is because it is a cake with three components, part cream, part flan and part génoise.

English version follows below....

Comment on fait ?Facile à préparer, la liste des ingrédients se résume à cinq composants de n’importe quel placard de base : beurre, sucre, farine, œufs et lait. Après avoir mélangé au batteur 4 jaunes d’œufs avec 150 g de sucre, on ajoute 125 g de beurre fondu, 115 g de farine, 1 c. à soupe d’eau, 50 cl de lait et les 4 blancs montés en neige en dernier. On obtient une pâte très liquide et très différente : une consistance de type pâte à flan, avec sur le dessus, une mousse à base des blancs en neige. Ensuite, il ne reste qu’à l’enfourner pendant 1h à 150 °C. Et abracadabra, la magie opère… à la sortie du four, trois couches distinctes apparaissent !

Let the magic begin...
Easy to prepare, the ingredients list consists of five components of any basic wardrobe: butter, sugar, flour, eggs and milk.


Ingredients

4 eggs 
150 g sugar
125g of melted butter,
115g flour,
1 soup spoon of water

  1. Make the batter by mixing 4 egg yolks 150 g sugar, then add 125g of melted butter, 115g flour, 1 soup spoon of water and the egg whites beaten stiff last of all.
  2. A very different and very liquid paste is obtained: a dough-like consistency to the bottom with the top, a foam based on egg whites.
  3. Place in a round cake tin.
  4. Bake for 1 hour at 150 ° C. And abracadabra, magic happens ... out of the oven, three distinct layers appear!

For a variation add cocoa powder or berries, anything that takes your fancy......

Wishing you all a magique vendredi, Leeann x
