Description

This striped cake is a beautiful and luxurious treat for an afternoon visit from a friend. Layering white vanilla cake with pink vanilla cake, a layer of your favorite jam runs between each layer of cake. A layer of rich melted chocolate coats the top of this beautiful cake. Cut away the sides for a uniform finish that highlights the distinct layers. Serve alongside a cup of coffee or your favorite tea.

Ingredients

  • 210 grams butter (room temperature)
  • 300 grams sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 320 grams pastry flour
  • red food coloring (optional)
  • jam (mango, or any other flavor you like to combine with chocolate)
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. 2Line 2 (20- by 30-centimeter) baking pans with parchment paper.
  3. 3Mix together the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract.
  4. 4While continuing to beat, mix in the eggs one by one, the milk, and the flour until the batter is well combined and without lumps.
  5. 5Optionally, divide the batter in two and add some red food coloring to one half.
  6. 6Fill each baking pan 1 centimeter full and bake for 10 minutes until just golden. Let cool completely and carefully remove from the parchment paper.
  7. 7Cut each cake in half and stack one on top of the other with mango jam in between each layer. If you used the food coloring, alternate colors.
  8. 8Put something on top to weigh the cake down, and refrigerate for a few hours.
  9. 9Put the dark chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 1-minute increments until everything has melted. Coat the top of the cake with this mixture.
  10. 10Optionally, you can cut the sides of the cake so everything looks orderly and the same size.
