This is probably the most beautiful Valentine's cake, but today we are going to prepare it in a different way. We are going to prepare a rolled sponge cake that we will fill with a soft cream cheese.
It is a very simple recipe that will be just as delicious if we do not add the dye, although it will not be as pretty.
- 120g of flour
- 15g cocoa powder
- One teaspoon of baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 100g sugar
- 50g brown sugar
- four eggs
- 30ml olive oil
- 30 ml of skimmed yogurt
- Half a teaspoon of red food coloring
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
For the filling:
- 200 ml of liquid cream
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 3 tablespoons cream cheese
- Half a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
- In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients except the sugar. Reserve.
- In a large bowl mix eggs and sugar and beat on high speed until mixture is foamy and pale in color.
- In a bowl, put the eggs with the two sugars and whip with a food processor or electric rods until they are fluffy and white.
- Then add the oil, yogurt, red food coloring and vanilla and mix well.
- Then gradually add the mixture of flour and cocoa.
- On iron of large Bra Efficient we put a baking paper and grease. Turn the dough carefully, smoothing well.
- Bake about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare a damp cloth on the countertop and sprinkle with cocoa powder.
- When the cake is ready, very carefully dump the cake onto the damp cloth. Remove the paper from the cake and roll it up on the damp cloth. Cool completely.
- In a large bowl, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla. Reserve.
- In another bowl, with the help of an electric mixer, beat the cheese until it loses any possible lumps and we have a smooth cream.
- Add the whipped cream and beat with the rods until you get a smooth and uniform mixture.
- Unroll the cake carefully and spread over our filling. Roll up carefully not to squeeze too much and cover with plastic wrap.
- Let stand in the fridge for a few hours and serve sprinkled with pure cocoa powder. Happy Valentines!
