15 March is the anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 outbreak. Kossuth was one of the most influential lawyer, journalist, politician of his time. Also a devoted freedom fighter. Apparently this cake was his favourite. Let’s remember for all who fought for freedom at any time throughout the history with this cake!
- 9 Eggs
- 180g Unsalted Butter on room temperature
- 360g Icing Sugar
- 360g Plain Flour
- 1/2 Juice of a Lemon
- Walnut, Almond, Pecan Nut
- Preparation time: 20 minute
- baking time: 60 minute
- Serves: 8 person
Separate the eggs. In a big bowl mix the butter and the icing sugar. Add the yolks one-by-one until it’s smooth. Add the lemon juice and the flour gradually as well.
Whisk the egg white until it’s stiff. Fold gradually into the mixture with a wooden spoon carefully.
Grease a baking pan with butter and sprinkle with flour.
Spoon the mixture into the baking pan. It should be around 1cm or 1/3 inch high. Sprinkle the top with coarsely grounded walnut, almond or pecan nut (I’m not too keen on walnut) and icing sugar.
Bake it for about 60 minute on 170C°.
Wait until it’s cooled down. With a circular cookie cutter cut into crescent shapes.
Serve it with jam, lemond curd or clotted cream. Good companion for the Afternoon Tea!
