“Hulk Smash” cake – done

I just finished assembly the hulk cake for my son’s b-day and I think a came about pretty decent considering the my children were screaming like crazy people all morning and I could not get a grip of my nerves.

Cake Recipe:
equal weighed amounts of:
whole eggs
granulated sugar
all purpose flour – I used “White Lily” bleached flour. sifted

This cake resembles an Italian Lady finger, flavor and texture wise.

I used five eggs and they weighed at around 300g so I weighed out same amounts for the flour and sugar (this made two 9″ round cakes.

Butter and flour dust two pans (not – non stick)

Beat eggs with sugar really good – till very pale yellow almost white in color and fluffy. Add sifted flour and fold by hand.

bake 338 degree F or 170 degree C for about 25-35 -or until a toothpick comes out clean.

 

Butter Cream

2 sticks of unsalted butter

5 cups of powder sugar

vanilla extract (I just pour to taste)

Heavy cream 2 – 5 tablespoons  or more…- depending on the consistency that you like to work with.
