Have you ever tried “baking” a cake on top of the stove? Well, we have “baked” a few! This time we wanted to make a cake that’s a little bit more complicated, but easy enough that you don’t require any baking experience to make it.
Our cake that is “baked” on top of the stove is worth serving as the final course to a delicious dinner or as a nice surprise for a loved one as a birthday cake. We are sure that you will find the ideal time to make it!
To “bake” the cake, we used our Induction Cooker. Rena Ware cookware conducts heat very efficiently, so it is important to remove the cake from the utensil as soon as it is done, otherwise it will continue to cook and the bottom may burn.
Cooking times can vary slightly, depending on whether you use a gas stove, electric, or induction. The first time you make this cake, keep track of how long it took to “bake” so you know for the next time you make it.
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
6 egg whites
1 ¾ cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups whipping cream
¾ cup powdered sugar
2 cups berries
Grease and flour the utensils. You can use two 1.5 Litre, two 2 Litre, or one 1.5 Litre and one 2 Litre utensil.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
Use a mixer to vigorously beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg whites, one at a time, to the butter mixture, making sure to incorporate them completely. Add the vanilla extract and continue beating. Add the flour to the mixture, alternating with the milk, and mix only until the flour is just incorporated.
Divide the batter in half, pour into the greased utensils and cover with the valve closed. Place one of the utensils on the Induction Cooker and cook at the lowest temperature for 23 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave the cake there for 2 more minutes. To check if it is fully cooked, insert a toothpick into the center, and if it comes out clean, it means that it is ready.
Remove from the utensil and let cool completely. Repeat the “baking” process with the other half of the batter.
While the cakes are cooling, prepare the whipped cream. Use a mixer and vigorously beat the whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add the powdered sugar and beat two more minutes.
Cut half a cup of strawberries into small pieces. Spread the whipped cream on the top of one of the cakes, add berries and place the second cake on top of the first one.
Decorate the top of the cake with the remaining whipped cream, add more berries, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Serve and enjoy with your guests!
