Hello everyone! So many time that I have not written anything. I am really sorry about that I think I will be sorry for a long time. I was busy planning my wedding and now I am moving as well. Between you and me, I have some troubles to manage everything. That’s why I was letting you down.
So I baked this beautiful French epiphany cake in January and unfortunately didn’t manage to post it yet. But I love that cake so much than usually I bake it all year-round.
A late French Epiphany cake
- 2 puff pastries
- 100 gr. of almond powder 1 cup or 3.57 oz.
- 80 gr. of butter 0.7 cup or 2.85 oz.
- 80 gr. of sugar 0.4 cup or 2.85 oz.
- 2 eggs
- 1 charm
- Keep the butter out of your fridge 30 minutes before starting.
- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Mix butter with almond powder, sugar and one of the eggs.
- Place one puff pastry in your pie plate. Riddle with holes. Spread almond mix on top of the pastry.
- Put charm and cover with the second pastry.
- Remove the surplus of pastry and close pie.
- Make lines using a knife (see picture) on top of the pastry.
- Mix one egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of water and spread on top of the pie.
- Bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
- Cover during the last 10 minutes if becoming too brown.
To make it more fun, buy a crown as well. Usually one of your guests, most of the time a child, but if a friend of yours want to do it that’s definitely not forbidden, goes under the table. You cut the Epiphany cake and you say “who wants this one?” moving your finger 4 times across the different slices of pie. You stop and the person under the table should say a name of one of your guest. You repeat the game until everybody has been served!
