Cake NaPolEoN (30 years in my family-just try it)

posted in Food & Drink > Recipes
  • You will need:
    200 gr butter (cold)
    350 gr self rising flour
    1 egg
    100 gr cold water
    2 tea spoons of vodka or cognac ( if for children- just forget about it)
    1 tea spoon of vinegar
    pinch of salt

  • Frosting:
    Now a tricky part, personally I like traditional condenced milk (sgushenka) and unsalted butter. But please try to find both ingridients in russian-polish-lithuanian shops, trust me it is the best :)
    But you can try any other custard or frostings you like.

  • So for pastry:
    1) Mix cold water, vodka or cognac and vinegar
    2) Put 1 egg into a bowl, add pinch of salt
    3) Combine mixture of two above
    4) Put flour in deep bowl, and add cold cubed butter (I just grate cold butter) and mix.
    5) Add your egg mixture and continue mixing untill dough forms.

  • Now you need to form 10 little balls from dough and put it inside fridge for an hour.
    The trickiest part of all is to bake. As you will need to roll each ball as in picture and then bake it ( each for about 5 minutes in 220 C degree in preheted oven).

  • For frosting as I said I like traditional, easiest and the tastiest ever option: just butter and condenced milk. Just mix them with mixer.
    Done. Easy isnt it?

  • After our baked layers cools down you just need to put 3 spoons of frosting and smooth it and repeat with every layer.
    Enjoy your home made delicious cake! Hope you will like it.

  • The final image was taken from google images as I never catch the moment to take a picture of my own baked one as it always vanishes very fast. :)
