    Re: Dessert Recipes

    Candy Cane Cake

    Prep and Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes. Notes: For a shortcut version, start with a store-bought angel food cake. The very fine candy "dust" left over from crushing the candy canes is delicious sprinkled on vanilla ice cream or stirred into hot cocoa. To maximize the dramatic look of this cake, add the crushed candy just before serving; the moisture from the whipped cream makes the peppermint begin to "melt" after half an hour.

    1 cup sifted cake or pastry flour
    1 3/4 cups sugar
    12 egg whites, at room temperature
    1 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    8 ounces peppermint candy canes
    2 cups heavy whipping cream

    1. Preheat oven to 325°. Sift together flour and 3/4 cup sugar. Sift again and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl or standing mixer, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and salt. Beat until soft peaks form. Add 3/4 cup sugar and the vanilla and almond extracts. Continue beating until egg whites are firm but not dry.

    3. Sift one-third of the flour-sugar mixture onto the egg whites and, with a rubber or silicone spatula, gently fold the mixture into the egg whites. Add remaining flour in two batches, folding gently after each addition. Turn batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan and bake until browned and firm to the touch, 50 to 60 minutes.

    4. Invert cake (in pan) on a cooling rack for at least an hour. When completely cool, run a long, thin, sharp knife between cake and pan to loosen, and remove cake.

    5. Put candy canes in a large sealable plastic bag. Crush them into small pieces with a meat pounder, rolling pin, or the bottom of a small frying pan. Sift crushed candy with a fine-mesh strainer and reserve candy dust for another use (see Notes). Set crushed candy aside.

    6. In a large bowl, beat cream with remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar until soft peaks form. Frost cake with whipped cream using a spatula to form swirls and peaks. Sprinkle frosted cake with crushed candy canes. (To get candy on the sides, hold your hand about 1 in. from the cake and gently toss crushed candy at the sides.) Serve immediately, using a serrated knife to cut slices.

    Note: Nutritional analysis is per serving.

    3/4 C. cocoa
    3/4 C. vegetable oil
    14 egg yolks
    1 T. vanilla
    2 1/2 C. cake flour
    2 1/4 C. sugar
    1 T. baking powder
    1 1/2 C. egg whites
    2 t. cream of tartar

    6 C. whipped cream
    1-1/2 C. powdered sugar
    4 t. vanilla

    Mix together the water and cocoa and cool slightly. Whip the oil, egg yolks, and vanilla into the cocoa mixture. Sift the flour, sugar, and baking powder, and add to the egg mixture, mixing well. Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until firm peaks form. Fold the flour/egg mixture into the firm peaks. Grease the bottoms of two 10" springform pans and pour in the final mixture. Bake at 350?F for 20-30 minutes, until set. Cool. Makes two cakes.

    In a chilled bowl, whip the whipped cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until stiff.

    1 C. soft fudge topping

    dark chocolate shavings

    Cut the cakes in 3 layers and spread the fudge topping on one layer of each cake. Sprinkle with a quarter of the raspberries and cover with a thin layer of the whipped cream mixture. Repeat with next layer and stack all 3 layers. Then frost the top and sides. Smooth top and section into 12 or 14 pieces. Press chocolate shavings onto the cake sides (optional). Garnish each slice with one raspberry, and if you have a pastry bag, a rosette of whipped cream. Chill for at least 2 - 3 hours. Serve with raspberry puree or chocolate sauce.
