The method of preparation of cake "Napoleon" from shortcrust pastry on mayonnaise
We measure the flour, add baking powder, mix, sift in a bowl.
Cut the butter into cubes, add to the flour. The oil can be cold in this recipe for the Napoleon cake, and at room temperature, the temperature of the oil will not have a special effect on the finished result.
Grind the butter with flour with your hands to make crumbs, add mayonnaise.
Break a large chicken egg into a bowl.
Knead the dough with your hands, you may need a little more flour, the dough should turn out pretty cool.
We roll the dough for the Napoleon cake into a kolobok, put it in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes, it will be easier to roll it out.
We divide the bun into 6-8 equal parts so that the pieces are the same, I advise you to weigh them.
Now we take the largest baking sheet, approximately we estimate how many cakes will fit on it at a time. Based on such a fitting, we select a plate - a template by which we will cut cakes. We also cut several sheets of baking paper.
On a sheet of baking paper, roll out a piece of dough thinly, apply a plate, cut out the cake.
We prick the cakes with a fork, put them in a pile with paper, put them in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, we heat the oven to 175 degrees, put cakes with paper on a baking sheet. We bake each batch 12-13 minutes until golden brown.
Beat cream for Napoleon cake. Put soft butter in a tall glass, whisk until splendid. When the oil becomes lush, add boiled condensed milk over a tablespoon.
We collect the cake - we spread each cake with the same amount of cream, stack one on another in a pile.
The collected cake is abundantly covered with cream on all sides. Grind one crust into crumbs, and, like a classic Napoleon, sprinkle a cake on top and on the sides.
Homemade Napoleon cake from shortcrust pastry on mayonnaise is ready. We clean in the refrigerator for at least 6-8 hours, although it may seem impatient that it is so tasty, do not give in to temptation, a frozen cake is better!
We serve with tea or coffee, bon appetit.
