Cooking Baumkuchen:

Step 1: Separate the protein from the yolk ...

Egg yolks need to be separated from the proteins. There are many ways to do this. One of the simplest is the following: the egg is accurately broken with a knife exactly in the middle. Above the bowl or cup, holding the shell with both hands, carefully open it, leaving only a thin gap. Protein will start to drain from it. But that's not all. Next, you need to turn the egg over and open the shell completely, so that all the contents remain in one half. Next, alternately pour the contents from one half of the shell to the other, while the protein will continue to drain. These manipulations must be done until the protein is completely separated. All the yolks are placed in a hotel bowl.

Step 2: Cooking the dough for the pie ...

Egg whites should be thoroughly beaten with half sugar (150 grams). The easiest way to do this is with a mixer. The result should be a thick cream. In another bowl, in the future, mix the remaining sugar (150 grams) with butter. Using clean mixer blades, you need to beat the mass until smooth, then add rum or cognac and yolks one at a time. During this process, continue to whisk the oil mixture. Mix the sifted wheat flour with starch, add a pinch of salt and a baking powder. All this is gradually intervened in a mixture of oil with yolks and thoroughly beat until smooth until lumpy. Next, spread the protein-sugar mixture in small portions and mix the ingredients well. The dough is ready!

Step 3: Create a Layer Cake ...

The resulting dough is divided into two even halves. In one of them we add ground lemon peel and mix the mass. We cover the baking dish with special parchment, which can be purchased at any hardware store. It prevents baking from burning and does not require additional use of oil. Preheat the oven to a temperature of 180-200 degrees. At the bottom of the mold, lay out a certain amount of the first type of dough and spread it with a spoon over the entire surface to make a very thin and even layer. Sent to the oven. You need to bake the cake to a light golden color for 3-5 minutes. After that we take out the form and lay out the second type of dough with the next layer. It is very important to spread the paste very thinly. Bake again. Thus, you need to alternate the dough and bake layer by layer until the ingredients run out. Cool the finished cake.

Step 4: Serve Baumkuchen ...

Coat the top and sides of the cooled cake with a spoon with any fruit jam. Next, in a water bath you need to melt natural chocolate. Grind it into small pieces using a coarse grater or knife. In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil, put a bowl on top of it so that it fits the size of the throat of the pan. Add a few tablespoons of cream or milk to the bowl, pour the chocolate and mix thoroughly. Cover the bowl with a lid. After a few minutes, the chocolate will melt. We cover them with all sides of the cake and cool it. Cut the baumkuchen into small pieces and serve. Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - If desired, in one part of the dough you can use not lemon peel, but other fillers, for example, chopped nuts or poppy seeds.

- In order to make the cross-sectional pie even more contrasting and aesthetic, food coloring for cream can be used in one part of the dough.

- -by the same principle, you can make small cupcakes, if you use not a single large vessel, but small molds.
