Mandarin Napoleon
If You are still undecided what dessert to impress your guests on New Year, I offer a new year's recipe of Napoleon cake. New year because New Year from me is inextricably linked with the smell of tangerines. The cake is insanely delicious!!!!! Tender, melting, aromatic. Cakes are fragile, soft, cream, but here there are two! just fantastic tangerine and cream bouquet. Overall, I highly recommend to try. By the way, cakes are baked according to old recipe of my grandmother, she was b is now 100 years old.. the Cakes turn out puff!!!! Oh, and last, to finally close the topic with hair color and not to offend the redheaded cooks, this cake is dedicated to you!!!:-)


  • Butter

    540 g

  • Flour

    3 cup

  • Sour cream

    300 g

  • Mandarin

    6 piece

  • Corn starch

    3 tsp

  • Chicken egg

    2 piece

  • Cream cheese

    175 g

  • Honey

    1.5 tsp

  • Condensed milk

    250 g

  • Vanilla

  • Sugar

    3 Tbsp

  • Nuts

    0.5 cup


For the pastry cold butter chop with flour, I chopped the dough with a large knife, in a food processor, not the main hands so that the oil melted
Add cold sour cream, salt, knead the dough, try as much as possible the dough to knead and touch hands
Divide the dough into 6 equal parts and put into the refrigerator for 3 hours
Meantime, prepare the tangerine cream. Squeeze the juice from the mandarins
I got 300 ml of juice
40 g butter to mix with sugar, add eggs and mixed with corn starch, tangerine juice. Cook over low heat until thick, stirring constantly
Here a cream is obtained
Cream cover with cling film touching the surface, and allow to cool
Preheat oven 180 deg. On parchment or between sheets of thinly roll out the dough. Take one part, others are waiting in the fridge
So out thinly, prick with a fork in several places
Bake 8-10 minutes or until light blush, remove carefully the cakes are very fragile! PS the Cakes in the cooking process covered large hollow bubbles, the dough is stratified, and very similar to puff pastry, but here it is more fragile and delicate
Thus to bake 6 cakes
For the butter cream beat together the soft butter, cream cheese and condensed milk
Then add in the cream, vanilla/vanilla and honey. If You do not like or do not carry honey, add a couple of tablespoons of sugar or powdered sugar in the butter at the beginning of the whipping. The honey in the cream is to be felt no longer, but the cream will become special, some unique flavor, the main thing to take light flower honey
Here is our ready DELICIOUS cream
Cakes are ready, cool, 2 cream ready
Put the bottom cake, spread white cream, top with tangerine cream, then the cake again and repeat
Nuts grind
Top the cake smeared, trimmed edge, grind them into crumbs and sprinkle it top cake, sprinkle top with nuts
All, the cake is ready. His fate depends on Your willpower, I lasted about 2 hours and started to try. VERY TASTY!!!!!!!
