It brought tears to my eyes when a dear friend told me desperately about her cupcake misfortune. She had, as always, baked a cake for the summer party in the primary school of our boys with a lot of love. He was destined for the cake sale.
When she arrived at the school gate, she had parked her bike and wanted to lift the baking tray, which had its own lid. Unfortunately, the bumps on the side and splashed through the bumpy cycling, the cake landed on their feet on the asphalt. The BEAUTIFUL cake she had baked with so much love.
I could see how desperate she had been in the situation. All the effort, the love that was in it and not least the ingredients and the contribution to the cake buffet, everything was gone. In her story, she told me about the recipe and I not only ran down the tear but also the mouth water.
MY JUICY CREAM CAKE WITH TOUCH OF THIN BAISER HOOD
So, of course, I could not help it and had to bake the cake as well. However, I did that in a modified form knowing that the meringue hood would no longer be nominated for my approach as a candidate for the German Baiser Prize. If this exists at all. The meringue itself should not have so much moisture so that it gets the right volume and texture. But in the end, so the taste counts and out came an ultra juicy raspberry cake with a touch of meringue.
WE LOVE RASPBERRY AND RASPBERRY KITCHEN FIRST RIGHT
Why raspberries? Because we love everything with raspberries! My men literally ripped the juicy raspberry cake out of my hands with a wafer-thin meringue bonnet. I could not look that fast, because he was already half plastered. I blended the raspberries very boldly with the meringue and the juice of the fruits gives the meringue mass not only a great consistency. The acidity of the raspberries and the sweetness of the meringue harmonize simply great. Outside the raspberry season, I also like to take frozen raspberries. So I can enjoy a summer cake all year round
Incidentally, raspberry summer can be very well preserved with raspberry jam. Look here is my recipe for raspberry jam.
Other delights with raspberries include my sweet tapas rolls with strawberries and raspberry cream and my raspberry dessert tartlet with KitKat Ruby.
