Also ‘kindly’ nicknamed by my Mum: pizza with würstel!
YEP! You got it right my adorable mamma- who cooks way better than me – when I texted her the photos of this cake, decided that it looked like a pizza topped with würstel and there was no way to make her change her mind!
I used rhubarb but if you want to avoid ‘the würstel effect’ that you can easily swap it with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or any other fruit that you might like – or have at home!The recipe is so easy that anyone can prepare it quickly and without fear.
A roll of ready sweet pastry for cakes
400 gr Rhubarb – or other fruits
100 ml Rose, Strawberry or Raspberry syrup (or a spoon of sugar if you don’t have it)
50 gr Sugar
50 gr Almond powder
100 ml Double cream
Icing Sugar and sliced Almonds to decorate
Basically it’s so easy that I don’t know where to start but I guess you can just mix all the ingredients inside a bowl except for the fruit and the syrup which you will have to cook for a few minutes on a lower heat.
You can decide – depending of which fruits are you using – to cook them for more or less time and to cut them into smaller or bigger pieces.
Lay the pastry on a baking tray, pour the mix and gently, with the help of a spoon, place the fruits at the end.
Decorate with almond slices and cook for 30-40 mins at 180°C.
When the cake has cooled down you could also sprinkle it with icing sugar before serving.
