"Toucinho Do CéU" (Egg Yolk, Almond and Sugar Cake) Recipe

65

This cake is traditionally served around the Christmas holidays, but it easy and delicious enough to make any time of year. This recipe calls for making your own powdered sugar for the garnish by grinding granulated sugar until fine. Keep this trick in mind for the future, too. The almonds are also ground to a powder and used as the "flour" in the gluten free dessert. It's incredibly rich and moist, thanks to having a full 18 yolks (and just 2 whites) in the batter.

Ingredients

  • 600 grams sugar
  • 150 grams skinless almonds
  • 220 grams water
  • 3 tablespoons Siam pumpkin jam
  • 18 egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites

Directions

  1. Place 100 grams of sugar in the Thermamix cup and grind for 15 seconds/speed 9.
  2. Remove and set aside.
  3. Place the almonds in the cup and set to 20 seconds/speed 7.
  4. Remove and set aside.
  5. Place the remaining 500 grams of sugar in the mixing bowl, add the water and set to 15 minutes/varoma/speed 2.
  6. Add the almonds and the jam and set to 10 minutes/varoma/speed 2.
  7. Remove and let cool.
  8. With the tip of a knife, cut the yolks and fold them carefully with the egg whites without over mixing.
  9. Set aside.
  10. Place the butterfly and set to 3 minutes/212ºF/speed 2 and gradually pour the eggs through the opening of the cup.
  11. Preheat the oven to 356°F.
  12. Pour the mixture in a greased and floured round cake pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes.
  13. Once cool, unmold and sprinkle with the reserved powdered sugar.
