The Eurospin challenge: a divine cake for only five euros

The cake is a symbol of celebration. Of course you can order it, but it is even better if you prepare it yourself for the celebrant.

We believe that among you are not the “confectioners” themselves, as our grandmothers used to say. However, if you don’t try, you’ll never know if there might be a talent lurking within you.

We have chosen a simple and affordable recipe for this celebration that will surely succeed. You only need a few ingredients that you almost always have on hand at home. We bought ours from the Eurospin store for up to five euros. Yes, you read it right. All we had to do was buy eggs, 1/2lb of fresh strawberries and sweet whipped cream.

We opted for a Pavlova cake, named after the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It was created in her honor by a chef in a hotel on a tour of Australia. The shape and color of the cake are reminiscent of ballet wings.

You’re bound to be a star in the kitchen too, especially if you add something of your own to the cake. The recipe is such that everyone can add their own twist.

But just follow the basic instructions.

Before you start, prepare a baking sheet, put baking paper on it and draw a circle about 20-25 centimeters in diameter. A cake pan, a large plate or a pair of compasses should help you with this.

Preheat the oven to 110 degrees Celsius. If you read the recipes you will notice different temperature settings. We advise you to bake at a low temperature for a long time.

Beat the egg white, which should be at room temperature, under the hard snow for a few hours. When hard peaks form, gradually add the sugar. When you’re done with the sugar, add more starch, salt, and vinegar or lemon juice.

Beat until you no longer feel any sugar crystals between your fingers.

Then use a spoon to spread the snow in a circle on the baking paper. You can also spray the snow into any shape you like. We just applied the snow and then created a wavy edge with a long knife.

Bake the pavlova base for 1 hour and 30 minutes. When the baking process is finished, let the cake cool down completely in the oven.

Then decorate with whipped cream and any toppings. You can use different types of fruit, the most popular being the version with strawberries and cream.

Whip the sweet cream just before serving, cut the strawberries beforehand and place on top of the cream.

You can also boil some strawberries in some water and sugar. After cooking, sauté in the sauce and pour over the cream. Have a good run!

If you follow the current promotions in Eurospin, the preparation of the cake will be even cheaper. You can find the new flyer HERE.
