How to cook “Cake “Napoleon””

The butter should be cut into small cubes.

Mix the butter, flour and baking powder.

Triturated into crumbs.

A thin stream pour into the dry mixture of beer.

Knead a soft, elastic dough.

We divide our dough into 8 pieces, wrap each in plastic wrap and into the fridge for an hour or two. Meanwhile you can prepare the custard (recipe on this site), and it is possible not to do that and cook a cake, for example, with condensed milk.

Take out the prepared dough from the refrigerator, roll out each ball of cake.

With the help of molds (for example, square plates) give the cakes the desired square shape. Pierces each cake fork in several places. Bake each cake separately, for about 10-12 minutes in the oven, preheated to 200 degrees.

The finished cake let cool.

We coat our cakes with cream (or condensed milk, whichever you are using).

Upper Korzh not coat. Wrap the cake in plastic wrap and put in a cool place (but not in the refrigerator) overnight.

From the remaining scraps of dough form a cake of any shape, bake like the previous one, and then grind into crumbs.

Now we coat the cream on top of the cake and sides of cake, and all we have done, sprinkle with crumbs.

Allow the cake to stand for a while, then cut and serve. Nice!
