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. 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 sugar 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, add the four yolks one at a time, before adding another yolk wait until the one before is completely absorbed . Add the flour. Stirring carefully bottom up add the almonds, chocolate and amaretti everything roughly minced. Wash the whip and whip the albumens with the remaining sugar and add stirring carefully bottom up. Put everything it a pot lined with French pastry 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.
After two slices I'm nearly reconciled with the world despite Marquez's debauchery.
