Preparation

Recipe: Poppy seed sponge with cranberry sauce

  1. To make the dough, separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolk, sugar, vanilla extract and water for about 5 minutes until creamy. Mix together the flour, baking powder and poppy seeds, fold into the egg mixture. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold in small amounts at a time. Line the base of the baking tray with baking paper, spoon in the dough, smooth it down and bake in an oven preheated to 175°C (upper or lower heat) for about 35 minutes, leave to cool and divide the dough twice horizontally.
  2. For the ganache, coarsely crumble the plain chocolate and put in a bowl. Heat up the cream, bring to the boil and pour hot over the plain chocolate pieces. Leave to stand for about 3 minutes and stir through well to make a homogenous mixture. Leave to cool.
  3. For the filling, beat the whipped cream with the cream stabiliser to form a stiff mixture; then carefully fold in the cranberries.
  4. Put the base on a cake plate; spread half the cranberry-cream mixture on top, put on the second layer, spread on the remaining crème, finishing with the third base.
  5. Glaze the cake completely with ganache. Leave in the fridge to set.
  6. Cover the cake with fondant and white Decor marzipan, stick on the pearls and other decorations using edible glue.
