Swedish cake Prinsesstårta

Thanksgiving weekend is finally here 🙂 well, almost amyway. It means fun get together with family and friends.. and mounds of yammy food 🙂 I was experimenting with Swedish princess cake that I first saw on great british bake off. I really wanted to make it perfect for the holidays. But, alas, yet have to learn how to make it. First of, french sponge genoise is extremely difficult to make I find. As soon as you try to mix in batter in, the whole mixture just colapses and looses it’s volume. After two fails, I made it happen. Also, instead of corn starch I used corn flour first time. The recipe was calling for corn flour and even though I had bells ringing in my mind, I assumed I should trust Mary Berry. After all that, on my third time it came out just great 🙂
The cake is super moist and just enough sweetness in it, with layers of raspberry jam, vanilla custard and fresh whipped cream. Yam.
I hope you guys have a great weekend. Stay warm 🙂
