LOOKING for: traditional napoleon cake recipe

xpost from cooking and desserts..

Hi All -

Its my husbands birthday and he loved napoleons. He was telling me that his parents knew a bakery that made a napoleon cake. I have been searching for recipes - but I don;t really know what I am looking for?

Does anyone have a recipe for a napoleon cake? or a good recipe for napoleons? I thought if I couldn;t make a cake I would make napoleons. But he wants more of a traditional napoleon and not one with berries and such.

Thanks so much.

I don't have a T&T recipe,but these two look good. (I just googled napoleon cake. You might try that to find more recipes.)



1 egg
7 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups almonds, grated
8 Tablespoons bittersweet chocolate, grated
1 tsp. candied orange peel or fresh orange peel
2 Tablespoons cake crumbs (or fine bread crumbs)
7 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1 cup heavy cream
2 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
CHOCOLATE ICING (Schokoladenglasur):
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
4 1/2 oz. unsweetened chocolate or bittersweet
1 Tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8 or 9-inch cake tins.

Beat egg, egg yolks, and sugar until creamy. Add almonds, chocolate, orange peel, and cake crumbs; continue beating. Fold in gently stiffly beaten egg whites. Put batter in prepared pans.

Bake in 300 degrees F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes clean.

When cool split each cake into 2 layers.

Spread cream, whipped and sugared, between layers.

Pour chocolate icing over top layer.

Cook sugar with water until it spins a heavy thread.

Melt chocolate in double boiler; add butter.

Add hot syrup gradually, stirring constantly until smooth and until mixture coats spoon.
