Sugar High Friday #41: Sweet Gifts - White Russian Cake

I invited my parents for Easter so I thought to surpise my mom with this cake. First of all this was long time my favourite cake as I child, so it was obvious for me that I am gonna surprise her with this and nothing else. When I was younger I did not want to learn to cook from her and this made her really sad, because she is a passionate baker. Meanwhile she knows that I have a food blog and she is kinda proud of me to see how many dishes and cakes I have already made. She was very happy about the cake, but most of all happy to see me because we live thousand miles away and meet only three times a year. My dad also enjoyed a cake, he loves everything with a good chocolate cake. Mom said it was even better than what she does. I would say they taste the same. I asked my mom why it is called that way, but she also did not know the answer. I have made two long versions and one small for her. This is my entry for the Sugar High Friday.

18 egg white
600 g sugar

600 g grated walnut
1 pinch of salt

4 packs of vanilla sugar

18 egg yolk
300 g powder sugar
3 packs of vanilla sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder

100 g dark chocolate
250 g butter

This is amazing, i have a similar recipe, only i know it under the name "reform torta" and i thought the recipe was actually serbian. This cake always tastes amazing, but i think i'll try your version to see how the different proportions influence the taste. All the best! Maja
