Fruit Salad on Daisy Cake with Balsamic Vinegar: a sweet healthy tasty dessert
Spring is coming soon, and I look for the fresh fruits it carries on our table. And yes I love fruits, and I love desserts and cakes.
So here a nice recipe that makes me happy!
First of all, you need all the fruit you love and can put together, a daisy cake (the recipe is here below) and a litte Balsamic Vinegar Glaze.
Prepare the fruit salad, dressing it with a little sugar and a very little splash of lemon, since you will add also the Balsamic Vinegar Glaze that will add a little of acidity.
Let it rest for a while, in the meantime cut as many Daisy Cake slices as many of you will eat the dessert.
Put every Daisy Cake slice in a little dessert plate, and add on top and aside (only one side!) the fruit salad.
Add n top and on the other side of th cake few Balsamic Vinegar Glaze drops, and put in fridge for 15 minutes. The liquid of the fruit salad will be absorbed by the cake, and the Balsamic Vinegar Glaze will give a wonderful taste.
Now your dessert is ready. Enjoy it!
And here the recipe for the Daisy Cake:
For the Daisy cake you will need:
100g of flour 00, 100g of potato starch, 80g of melted butter, 200g of icing sugar, 6 fresh eggs, the grated rind of one lemon bio (or less if you wish – in alternative you may add vanilla extract), a pinch of salt, butter and flour for the mold of 24 cm diameter
First of all, divide the egg yolks from the whites . And switch on the oven static at 180 degrees.
With an electric mixer fitted well the egg whites and set aside .
With the same beaters whip the egg yolks with the icing sugar until will be soft and fluffy.
Put together the mixture of egg yolks and sugar with half of the egg whites. Do it with a wood spoon and a gentle top down motion, till you will get a smooth cream.
Sift both the flours and add them gently to the cream .
Now is time to add the lemon grated limb or the vanilla extract. Then pour half of egg whites and finally the melted butter very gently warmed .
If needed, butter the pan and switch a light layer of flour (if you use a silicon pan this is not needed) , pour the cake cream and place in a hot oven to bake static at 180 degrees for about 40/45 minutes.
Turn off the oven , open the door and let the cake cool inside. After 30 minutes you Daisy Cake will be colder, and you may put it a plate and cover with a little sifted icing sugar.
Looks delicious and very spring-like!
Thanks Chloe! So nice of you…
