Cake Napoleon - a classic recipe for Soviettime - which I will give below, in my view, is closely associated with the New Year's holidays - a salad "Olivier", the smell of the Christmas tree and oranges. This recipe appeared in the Soviet period, which accounted for my childhood. Perhaps, therefore, it is very economical cake - it goes very simple products, at least the eggs and oil.
Nevertheless, our mothers, who lived not in the best lighttimes, were able to prepare a feast. Cake "Napoleon" - my (and many people) loved the cake. Especially tasty it on the second day after baking. I like to get up early in the morning of January 1 and slowly drink a cup of coffee with the cake, looking out the window to update the world ...
Yet this cake is so good that it can be ShortcakesBake in advance (before the eve of the week), and on December 31, when, and so a lot of hassle, just cook cream fluff cakes and put the cake in the cold until the holiday.
If you cook a cake quite often, youlearn to do it very quickly. But the first time it can be a bit troublesome. However, I do not advise to buy ready-made dough: it can not have the same taste. Therefore, before the New Year is still time, practice and bake "test Napoleon." I'm sure you will like it.
