White chocolate cake

Method

For the cake

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (356° F), set to fan.
  • Butter and flour a round 20 cm springform pan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, beat the eggs with the vanilla extract and the sugar, at medium-high speed, until they are fluffy and double in size.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and add the flour.
  • Mix with a spatula, until there is a smooth, uniform mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into the pan and bake it for 15-17 minutes.
  • Take the cake out of the oven and set it on a rack, until it is completely cool.

For the frosting

  • In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream.
  • Add the white chocolate couverture into a bowl.
  • As soon as the heavy cream boils, pour it into the bowl with the chocolate, and mix with a spatula until there is a smooth ganache.
  • Let the mixture get very cool.
  • Add the mascarpone and mix softly with a hand whisk or in the mixer at low speed, until the cheese is well combined with the white ganache.
  • Pour the mixture into the pan, over the cake, and place it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, until the frosting thickens.  
  • When you take the cake out of the refrigerator, pass a knife all around the pan’s sides and then, remove the cake.
  • Put the whipped cream into a pastry bag with a 10 mm pastry star tip and create rosettes all around the cake.
  • Spread the couverture flakes at the center of the cake, and serve.
