Pineapple Torte

So this Saturday I was going through my recipes and looking for something exciting to bake, and I came across this one. I never made it before actually and  I gathered  notes of recipes a long long time ago! so have no idea where it is from.

Ingredients for the Cake:
Eggs: 7
Sugar: 7 tablespoon
Flour: 5 tablespoon
Ground walnuts: 10 tablespoon
Baking powder: 2 teaspoon

Preheat your oven to 350 F and cover the bottom of a  9 inch round pan with wax paper. separate the egg yolks and in a clean bowl mix the egg whites with sugar till stiff. add egs yolks one by one and mix in between. then add walnuts, flour and baking powder slowly till they are all mixed together. pour the batter in your pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes.

In meanwhile let's make the cream.

Ingredients for Cream:
Eggs :3
Corn starch: 2 tablespoon
Flour: 2 tablespoon
Sugar: 1 1/3 cup
Milk: 2 1/4 cup
Vanilla sugar: 6 teaspoon
Butter : 1 1/4 cup
Pineapple : sliced as much as you like

Put a sauce pan on the medium low-heat and heat the milk. mix eggs and sugar,add corn starch and flour and mix all with boiling milk. reduce the heat and mix the batter till the cream thickens. take off from heat and cool it down a little bit. cut butter to small cubes and add to the rest one by one and mix them well until nice and creamy.
Back to cake; now your cake in cooled down, cut from the middle. sprinkle the cake surface with pineapple juice. spread half the cream on the cake and cover it with completely with pineapple. then cover them with the rest of the cream. put the other half of the cake on top. you could use the same cream for the top of the cake or use white whipped cream.
cool down the cake for about an hour in a fridge and let the cream and pineapple taste absorbs to the cake ; then it is ready to serve. you could use any type of fruit you like ( pear, apricot, peach, you just name it).
Hope you try this and enjoy !
