Negri in camasi albe
 Cand imi aduc aminte de mine, adolescenta de 15 ani, ma si vad in timpul orelor de practica (deh, eram pe vremuri comuniste cand toti trebuia sa fim oameni ai muncii) schimband cu colegii casete cu Michael Jackson. Adevarul e ca pe vremea aia cine avea asa ceva era cea mai populara persoana din liceu :). Am ascultat albumul Thriller de atatea ori si atat de tare, incat parintii mi-au ascuns casetofonul. Cu alte cuvinte, adolescenta si tineretea mi le-am umplut cu melodiile lui. Nici pana acum nu-mi vine sa cred ca a murit. Si nici ca a trecut deja un an! Am facut aceasta prajitura inspirata de melodia lui, Black or White. Prajitura” Negri in camasi albe” o stiu de la mama, de cand eram mica. Mi se pare o prajitura de sarbatoare, care arata deosebit de frumos pe masa incarcata cu bubatati. Este foarte gustoasa si place oricui. 

Negri in camasi albe

 

Timp de pregatire: 15 minute

Timp de gatire: 30 minute

Timp de racire: 2 ore

 

Ingrediente pentru tava de 40 cm x 40 cm: 

Pentru blat

  • 5 oua, separate
  • 180 g zahar pudra
  • 50 g faina
  • 40 g cacao
  • 1 lingurita praf de copt

  • 200 g zahar
  • 6 galbenusuri
  • 50 g cacao

Pentru bezea

  • 6 albusuri
  • 300 g zahar tos

 

Mod de pregatire

Se incepe cu blatul:
Incalzeste cuptorul la 180C si pregateste o tava de dimensiuni maxim 40 cm x 40 cm.( Daca tava e mai mare, blatul iese prea subtire.) Unge-o cu unt si tapeteaz-o cu faina.
Bate albusurile spuma tare. Amesteca galbenusurile cu zaharul pana ce se albesc. Adauga faina, cacao, praf de copt (cernute in prealabil) si la sfarsit usor albusurile. Toarna in forma si coace 15 minute, pana blatul e jumatate facut. Pune bezeaua si mai lasa 15 minute

Bezeaua

Bate albusurile tare, apoi adauga cate o lingura de zahar, batand bine dupa fiecare adaugare. In final trebuie sa rezulte o textura cremoasa si lucioasa. Mai multe poti citi aici

Lasa la racit blatul cu bezeaua. 

Crema:
La baia de aburi amesteca zaharul, galbenusurile si cacao pana ce crema se intareste. Lasa la racit si pune untul. Unge bezeaua cu crema. Da la rece ca sa se intareasca bine.

Taie cu un cutit ascutit, tinut in apa fierbinte.

I can not believe that  one year passed already. And I still can not believe that he is dead. I remember me, in early 80’s,  a teenager listening  to songs from Thriller so many times and so loud, that my parents hide my cassette player. Memories..  I actually grew up with his songs. So, this cake is my tribute to you, Michael Jackson. Inspired from the song Black or White. I will always remember you.
 
Bottom layer

    * 5 eggs, separated
    
* 180 g icing sugar
    
* 50 g flour
    
* 40 g cocoa
    
* 1 teaspoon baking powder


Cream

    * 100 g butter
    
* 200 g sugar
    
* 6 egg yolks
    
* 50 g cocoa
  

Meringue

    * 6 egg whites
    
* 300 g granulated sugar 

It starts with the bottom layer: Preheat oven to 180C and prepare a tray maximum size 40 cm x 40 cm. If pan is bigger, the layer is too thin. Brush it with butter and coat it with flour.

Pour into shape and bake 15 minutes, until dough is half done. Put meringue and cook  15 more minutes.

    @TheChocolatePriestess: I didn’t try to store the cake because when I make it, it evaporates very fast :), Last time I saved a piece for my mom and it was very good after 3 days. Meringue was ok.

    Looks wonderful. I love gooey cakes. Of course, when I saw MJ, my first thought was Michael Jordan and I was trying to figure out why he needed a tribute. 🙂

    That looks like a lovely cake. How long with the meringue part store after you make it? How quickly should such a cake be eaten?
