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.

      Joshua is referring to the verse about forsaking not the assembling of themselves together. Because, of course, one quote from Paul, that was directed at a particular community, cancels all of that caring for one another that Jesus suggested.

      Mary, you seem like a person with a fine brain. Don't waste it trying to convince Gary of anything. Any guesses as to whether Gary will fight with her, delete the comment, or never notice it because he's so busy preparing a fresh, new, never-before-preached message for tomorrow?

      Spoiler

      Her husband posted a picture of them with the baby on june 20th. It’s a girl but I don’t know the name.

      I think the name is Abigail.  David Poemoceah's brother Daniel's Facebook page, says "Greatest uncle to Abigail ever". Daniel does not appear to have any other nieces or nephews.

      The picture of Gill Bates was from the summit of 2019. They had 2018 and 2019 pictures enticing people to sign up for Summit 2021. 

      Yeah they used to go. That’s why I was looking for any of them. The group seems smaller this year. The Caldwells usually went too. But I saw none of them.
