Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cups butter (softened)
  • 3 medium eggs (separated)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces white chocolate (melted)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 6 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • red food coloring

Directions

  1. For the cake, preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add 6 tbsp butter and rub with your fingers until the mixture is coarse and crumbly.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg whites, milk and vanilla. Stir into the flour mixture then carefully fold in the melted chocolate. Transfer to 2 greased 10 inch springform cake pans and bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pans before removing and cooling on a wire rack.
  3. For the frosting, beat egg yolks for about 5 minutes until light and creamy then set aside. Meanwhile, bring the syrup and 1/3 cup sugar to a boil and cook until mixture reaches 240°F on a candy thermometer. Slowly add the syrup to the beaten egg while continuously whisking until it has cooled down. Stir in 1 1/3 cups butter then set aside.
  4. Cut both cakes in half horizontally. Layer the cakes, topping each layer with jam and a thin layer of the frosting. Cover the top with half the frosting then divide the remaining frosting into thirds. Color each third from light pink to dark pink then decorate the cake so that the bottom is darker and the top is lighter.
