Harlequin cake is one of the most beloved cakes with tender leaves and jam, which can be prepared for parties or holiday meals. It is made a few days in advance (ideally 2 days), so that the sheets become softer and tastier.

The good part is that I bake the sheets 3, even 4 days before the holidays, I assemble Harlequin cake two days before and let it wait in the fridge for 24 hours before making the icing and decoration. The more days go by, the better the cake. And, the very good part is that it lasts even 7 days (but I don't know if anyone can keep such a cake for more than 48 hours from the moment they cut the first cube to be offered at the table)

Harlequin cake it bears this name due to the decoration: a glaze based on yolks, over which the various variously colored candies are sprinkled. If you can't find such candies, you can use dried / candied fruits of many colors (pineapple, mango, kiwi, raisins, blueberries, cherries), cut into very small cubes.

Try to put many colors, as a clown's pants would look, because that's the idea.

The preparation method is easy, it will really scare the idea of ​​sheet cakes. I assure you that there is nothing complicated, the sheets are easy to make, the ingredients can be found in any store.

The filling is trivial: just jam. The jams used can be fixed the ones you like or have in the pantry. The idea is to use 3 different types of jam, three different colors. You say, isn't it simple and fast?

Harlequin cake it can be stored in a cool room or in the refrigerator and is portioned before being served. It can be cut into squares, rectangles, rhombuses. Cut as you like, but not too large portions.

When my child was little and I was making this cake for the party his friends came to, it ended first. At that time I was not thinking of taking pictures and I regret that it did not occur to me to immortalize the dozens of gloves pointing at the same time to the plate on which was the Harlequin cake.

My soul was filled with joy when I saw them with how much pleasure they enjoy the cake and I ask for another piece.

Here are other cakes with sheets prepared by me, perfect to be made a few days before the holidays: Albinita cake (with bee honey leaves), Kati cake, Jerbo cake, Carpathian cake with chocolate, burnt sugar cake, cake with leaves and chocolate cream, cake with cocoa leaves and vanilla cream, cake with leaves and tomato juice, cake with wafer sheets, caramel and walnuts.

Method of preparation

This cake is one of the seasonal cakes, why do I say that, because it is very tasty when prepared with fresh apricots. Of course, apricots can be replaced with an apricot jam, but the taste will not be the same.

First we will start with apricot cream, which must be left to cool for some time. We will wash the apricots well and let them drain a little, then we will remove the seeds, we will mix them until they become like a puree. We will put the puree obtained in a Teflon pot, to which we will add the sugar, pudding and semolina. We put the pot on the right heat, stirring constantly and it will be left to boil until it thickens, after which it will be set aside to cool well, and after cooling, it will be put in the fridge to harden. If you notice that the cream is not thick enough, you can add a few tablespoons of semolina. And now we will move on to preparing the dough.

The butter mixes well with the sugar, the egg, the salt powder and the lemon peel, after which the yogurt is added, in which we dissolved the baking powder and the baking soda, and at the end, we will add the flour. I made the dough with the kitchen aid mixer and I got a dough that was not too soft and slightly elastic. If the dough is too soft, you can add a little more flour, and if it is too hard, add a little warm yogurt, until you get the right dough. Remember, the dough obtained must be elastic, neither too soft nor too hard. Put the dough in a cool place to rest for about 20 minutes, during which time we prepare the tray where we will bake the cake and which we will line with baking paper. The size of my tray was (36x28) cm. The larger the tray, the thinner the sheets will be. I used a medium-sized tray so that the sheets were neither too thick nor too thin. The dough is divided into two equal pieces and from each piece, spread a sheet of cake, using two nylon sheets, possibly baking paper. The dough is spread evenly between the two foils, after which the obtained sheet will be placed in the tray, also with the help of the foil and will be pricked from place to place with a fork, then it will be put in the hot oven, at 180 & degC, approx. 15 minutes, until the edges of the dough turn slightly golden. Meanwhile, spread the second piece of dough. After the first sheet has baked a little, pour over the apricot cream and spread it evenly over the entire surface of the sheet. Place the second sheet of dough over the cream and prick it again with a fork from place to place. Put the tray back in the oven, which is already hot, at 180 & degC, for 30 minutes. At the end, we will brown it a little, until it acquires a slightly golden color (watch the pictures as of course they will be useful). Leave to cool for a few hours, then cut into the desired shapes and powder with vanilla sugar. Be careful, it is not cut unless it is completely cooled, so that the cream does not come out between the sheets, because the cream layer is quite thick. I made 2 portions, the first one I cut after a short time, for my cravings, and the second one, I left it in the fridge and portioned it the next day and of course it came out with a wonderful look. It is a very tasty and delicious cake, being seasonal, I really invite you to try it, because now is the time when we can pamper our family, but also amaze our guests with such delicacy.

Walnut cake, apricot jam and whipped cream

I manage to slip through the work at home, the Superblog competition and Alexandru to relax in the kitchen preparing sweets. So I buried a simple cake with walnuts, apricot jam and whipped cream because I had some whipped cream left from the last peach cheesecake ready (recipe here).

It is not a very complicated cake, the intense taste of walnut combines perfectly with the sweet and sour of apricot jam. I also added a little cream with 40% fat so that the cream does not become dry. I leave below the recipe for walnut cake, apricot jam and whipped cream.

What do you need?

4 eggs
100g flour
100g ground walnuts
100g old
50ml grape seed oil
5g baking powder

10g gelatin sheets

Peach compote juice

1. In a large bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar until they double in volume, then incorporate the oil. Gradually add flour mixed with baking powder and finally add walnuts.

3. While the countertop is baking, we can prepare the cream. Mix the cream well until it becomes whipped cream. Keep 1/4 of the whipped cream for decoration, and in the rest we add sour cream, honey, ground walnuts, vanilla essence and lemon peel and mix until we get a homogeneous mixture.

4. I also prepared a little gelatin because it seemed to me that the cream was a little liquid and I wanted to make sure that it wasn't in the valley on the counter. I also incorporated gelatin in the cream, according to the instructions on the package, and then I left it in the fridge.

5. After the countertop has cooled completely, divide it into two parts, which we will syrup with the juice from a peach compote.

6. Assemble the cake: top, apricot jam, cream, top and then the simple whipped cream kept before preparing the cream. Store in the refrigerator for a few hours until cut.

Pour this cream over the top greased with jam and bake on the right heat for 15-20 minutes.

  • 1 jar of apricot jam
  • 80 grams of fried walnuts
  • glaze of 100 grams of dark chocolate + 80 ml. cream for whipped cream

Top preparation for Walnut Cake, Apricot Jam, Milk Cream and Chocolate:

1. Turn on the oven and set it to 180 degrees Celsius. Prepare a tray of 36 & # 21533 cm, lining it with baking paper.

2. Separate the eggs, put the egg whites in a bowl together with the salt and beat hard. Add the sugar in the rain and continue beating until the sugar is completely dissolved and a firm meringue is obtained. Add the yolks all at once and mix quickly for a maximum of 5-6 seconds.

3. Add the vanilla extract, grated lemon peel, flour and ground walnuts all at once. Mix everything with a spatula with a wide and flexible spatula, permanently lifting the composition from the bottom of the bowl to the surface, so that the air accumulated in the beaten egg whites is not lost (as we did on the gluten-free walnut cake top) .

4. Pour the countertop composition into the tray lined with baking paper, level well and put in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned, pass the toothpick test but do not dries too much. The baking tray is carefully peeled off the baking paper and allowed to cool well.

Preparation of milk cream for Walnut Cake, Apricot Jam, Milk Cream and Chocolate:

1. While the countertop cools, proceed to the preparation of the cream. I recommended a condensed milk cream, very similar to vanilla cream. If you have nowhere to buy sweetened condensed milk, I recommend replacing the cream base with classic vanilla cream (click on the recipe link). As for the cream that I prepared, I poured in a graduated container the condensed milk (at the base) and the milk, so as to obtain a total volume of 500 ml.

6. I mixed the milk well with the condensed milk. No sugar is needed, because condensed milk is very sweet. I put the mixture in a saucepan over medium heat, keeping 50 ml. in the graduated container. In a bowl, I mixed the yolks with the starch and the mixture of cold milk, poured little by little, with the pear-shaped target. When the milk mixture on the fire boils, pour it over the yolks, in a bowl, stirring vigorously with the whisk. Transfer everything back to the pan and simmer, stirring constantly, until well thickened. Pass the cream through a sieve in a bowl suitable for the mixer and leave to cool to room temperature, covered with cling film directly on the surface. After it has cooled completely, add the soft butter and incorporate it with the mixer on high speed.

Assembling Walnut Cake, Apricot Jam, Milk Cream and Chocolate:

1. Prepare the syrup, boiling all the ingredients, then filtering it through a sieve. The top of the cake is cut into three perfectly equal strips (in my case, I found 3 strips of 12 & # 21533 cm).

2. Sprinkle the countertop strips with a little syrup (not too much, we do not aim to get a wet countertop), especially on the edges. Consistent apricot jam is distributed on two of the countertop strips (it is important to be consistent, not to run).

3. Visually divide the cream into three equal parts. Grease one third of the cream on top of the first top with jam and cover with the next sheet of jam and again with cream.

4. Place the last sheet on top with the smoothest part facing up and press lightly. Cover with the last third of the cream, leveling as best as possible. Refrigerate the cake for 2-3 hours, to harden the cream well.

4. Melt the broken chocolate on the steam together with the whipped cream. Pour this icing over the well-cooled cake, keeping 2-3 tablespoons, and level with a knife. Sprinkle the roasted walnuts on top, while the icing is warm, and sprinkle the preserved chocolate icing on top of the walnuts. The cake is ready to serve as soon as the icing dries. Good appetite!

what do you do with lemon juice?

I like to use a slightly sour or even magic jam, which has no added sugar. If I use a sweet jam (eg pear) I add a little lemon juice & # 8211 I think it better highlights the flavors of the cake.

good morning, I followed the instructions exactly but the dough came out very crumbly, maybe it was too much flour? but I added some more milk and it turned into what I needed. It's a good cake .. it reminds me of my grandmother. thank you!
