The lime cake is a delicious cake with a refreshing lime taste. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
I used a round shape 20 cm by 4 cm deep. To be quite deep in shape, it is a lot of liquid that turns into sauce and could give off. Grease the form with butter or margarine. Mix in a bowl the flour, salt, sugar and lime peel. Add margarine, milk and vanilla sugar and mix until all the flour is incorporated. Put the whole composition in the form that will enter the oven.

Sauce:
Sprinkle the sugar and grated lime peel over the composition. Mix boiling water with lime juice and add with a spoon over the composition, until it is covered everywhere, and the rest of the liquid is poured over the back of the spoon.

Put it in the oven for about 30-40 minutes, and after removing it, keep it for another 5-10 minutes to let the sauce thicken.

Lime cake can be served with ice cream or as such. If you like lemon desserts, you will like it too, especially since it is easy and fast. And with ingredients at hand!

Ingredients Coffee ice cream

  • 4 yolks
  • 200 grams of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract & # 8211 personal note, I add vanilla to all sweets
  • 180 ml. of very strong coffee
  • 300 ml. cream for cream with 30% fat
  • 100 ml. of milk

Preparation Coffee ice cream

The coffee

1. First, make coffee. I used espresso very hard, but you can also make a brewed coffee. Boil 200 ml. of water. Add 4-5 tablespoons of ground coffee, remove immediately from the heat and cover the pot. After 15 minutes, strain and set the coffee aside. We prepare all the ingredients, to have them at hand.

Preparation of the cream

2. For the basic cream for coffee ice cream, put the yolks together with the sugar and vanilla essence in a heat-resistant bowl. Mix with the mixer at high speed until they are very light in color.

3. The 300 ml. of whipped cream with 30% fat and the 100 milliliters of milk are put in a saucepan on the fire. Heat to boiling point. As soon as it boils, pour the cream over the yolks mixed with the sugar.

4. Carefully mix and transfer the bowl over a pot of boiling water (bain marie). The bottom of the bowl should not touch the surface of the water, but should be heated only by steam. Stir constantly until the cream thickens enough to & # 8222 dress & # 8221 the back of the spoon. If we were to express this in degrees Celsius, it would be about 70 ° C, the temperature at which the yolks are practically cooked. If it gets hotter than that, the composition risks turning into scrambled eggs. It is basically what I described step by step at English cream recipe.

5. The basic cream for coffee ice cream is removed from the bowl with boiling water and immediately add the coffee, mixing well.

Freezing the cream

Allow the coffee ice cream to cool well. I put it on top of a bowl of cold water and ice cubes, which I changed several times. The base for the coffee ice cream is refrigerated for at least 3 hours, so that it has a temperature as low as possible before pouring it into the bowl of the ice cream machine. The dish must be well frozen in the freezer for at least 12 hours. The coffee ice cream will be ready in this machine in 25-30 minutes.

If you do not have such a device, the basic cream for coffee ice cream is poured into a bowl, cover and put in the freezer. Stir vigorously every 20-30 minutes to prevent the formation of ice crystals. Keep in mind, however, that you will get the best results with this simple ice cream machine.

When serving, coffee ice cream can be garnished with coffee beans, chocolate sauce, cream, biscuits or whatever you like.

Two words about royal recipes

In the foreword to the book, Princess Margaret reads:

& # 8222The title of the book contains no metaphor or irony. I'm glad I can give you a cookbook, royal in its own way. We all know how important hospitality was and remains in the ritual and public actions of the Royal House.

Over the hundreds of years, the Royal Families have amassed so much tradition, beauty, quality, and experience in public behavior that today their sharing is a boon.

Of course, giving guests everything that is best, most precious and most beautiful is the proud reflex of any host, wearing a royal crown or not. But when hospitality wears the symbolic garments of an entire nation, histories, cultures, or traditions, it has an extra meaning and significance. & # 8221

Thank you for such a fine and delicious coffee ice cream that I consider a sign of royal generosity!


How to prepare the cake with cocoa leaves and vanilla cream

First prepare the sheets. Beat eggs with sugar for a few minutes, add milk and continue to stir to melt the sugar, then pour the oil and quenched ammonia with vinegar.

Then add the cocoa, flour and knead a dough, not too hard.

Divide it into 6 pieces, about 200 g / each.

Spread the flour on the work table and spread each piece with a twister, 30 & # 21533 cm.

*I use the trays on the stove and, before lighting the oven, I spread a sheet, let the oven heat up (to 180 ° C) and then I spread another sheet. I have thus prepared two sheets on the trays and, on the work table, I spread one more. The sheets bake very quickly, last 10-13 minutes, so be careful and keep an eye on them. When they are lightly browned, they are ready.

Transfer them to a grill to cool, placing them on top of each other.

When you have finished baking the sheets, prepare the vanilla cream.

Heat the milk in a bowl, mix well with a whisk, the yolks with the sugar, a pinch of salt and the vanilla bean seeds until light in color. Then add the flour and pour the warm milk, stirring constantly.

Put the pot on the fire and stir continuously so that it does not stick. From the moment it boils, boil another 5 muffins on low heat. After you have given the cream off the heat, let it cool a little more for 10 minutes and incorporate the diced butter.

Mix well and, while warm, fill the sheets.

Place a weight on top of them (do not overdo it) and leave at room temperature for an hour.

Then decorate the cake according to the picture. Melt the household chocolate together with two tablespoons of oil, and the white one with one.

Distribute the household chocolate evenly over the entire surface of the cake and, with the white one, make stripes. Use a toothpick to make the pattern, passing perpendicular to the white lines.

Put the cake with cocoa leaves and vanilla cream in the fridge for a few hours or better overnight. Then cut it with a knife with a thin blade, passed through hot water, in the desired shape. Good appetite!
