Birthday Cake: Torta Russa (Russian Cake)

After watching  Marc Marquez sabotaging the motogp championship I badly need a leftover slice of my birthday cake. Luckily the day after it tastes even better. 20151107_225008.thumb.jpg.2f28e7c39b8e09 It's called Torta Russa (Russian Cake) even if it's typical of Verona because it looks like a Russian fur hat. It's not the most beautiful cake but it's my favourite,  it tastes like heaven for me. Ingredients: 150gr butter, 150 gr sugar, 4 eggs, 100gr flour, 200gr amaretti, 50gr non peeled almonds, 50gr chocolate. Start whipping the butter with half of the sugar20151107_121030.thumb.jpg.5cd64fbaa62a6e  for 20 whole minutes,  it's important to continue for 20 minutes even if after 10 mins the butter will start pretending to be o ready, it's crucial for the result to go on. After 20 minutes,20151107_122927.thumb.jpg.5a036624c811c9 add the four yolks one at a time, before adding another yolk wait until the one before is completely absorbed20151107_123118.thumb.jpg.96abb2fc0d21dd . Add the flour. 20151107_123505.thumb.jpg.92d70943a7bb4c Stirring carefully bottom up add the  almonds, chocolate and amaretti everything roughly minced. Wash the whip and whip the albumens with the remaining sugar 20151107_125023.thumb.jpg.ebd763172588b9 and add stirring carefully bottom up. Put everything it a pot lined with French pastry 20151107_125756.thumb.jpg.cecfaaabf8f0b8 and cook in oven at 180ºC for an hour, feel the inside with a toothpick to check if it's ready. And then enjoy the cake.20151107_182148.thumb.jpg.e48f7d12ff627a  :56247957a2c7b_32(17): 

After two slices I'm nearly reconciled with the world despite Marquez's debauchery.

I wonder if pate brisee (spelling?) is the same as French pastery. This is an interesting recipe. I may have to try it sometime in the next few weeks. Thank you for sharing!

I bet it is. If you make it, will you post about it?

I am the worst food blogger ever. I just noticed that I forgot to mention the baking powder in the ingredients  :pb_redface: well at least I noticed and now you know. It's not a key ingredient since there's so little flour, but it would probably alter the result in the end.

      Alyssa is giving birth so often that they may need the big house in a few years. They already have a nice house but they might outgrow it in a few years. 

      They still live in the garage apartment. Sam is building their house, but not full time. She's shown pictures of progress. Last I saw, there were some windows put in. It is not inhabitable yet. 

      Kressent & Mike never fully finished their house before moving to Paraguay. They did live in it for a while, but they were constantly working on it. I know for sure one of the bathrooms wasn't done because I remember she posted about beginning work on it then almost immidiately, they went to Paraguay and my mind just went into WTF mode. Now that Martha & Tayte are in it, I wonder if they've completed it, or even worked on it? (I also wonder if they bought it - Kressant was posting it for sale "to be moved off the property" for like $40K, if I remember correctly - or if they were just given it? But, that's a different story). Right now, they are living in the home owned by the senior Mortons while they build in Paraguay. They've been married what, 14 years, and have either been in transition or living in unfinished houses. I would feel so unsettled to always be living somewhere temporarily. 

      Rachels & Wes's house was the same, although I think they were much further along and had lived in it much longer. I wonder what happened to that one? Is that maybe where Katie is living?

      I'd guess they're at Lake Arrowhead. Perhaps elsewhere, but that's close to LA and a popular spot to hang out. 
      I'm not sure what I would do with an almost 2 year old and COVID.  But I don't think a playground would be involved.  Germs, man...germs everywhere...

      The duck biologist is looking for an entree back into the money grifting of VF-esque fundie life.  He's looking for money and prestige.  He wants to recapture the glory days of the Western Conservancy.

      Grifters gonna grift.  Narcissists gonna narssicist.  Geoff gonna Geoff,

      Bridger’s adoption story posted Friday 

      something Russian that begins with K Vladimir Alexandrovich.  His New middle name is Alexander.  He likes having two names.  I like that his patronymic is his middle name now.
