1 VANILLA CAKE MIX
6 Egg yolks
100g Heavy cream 36%
1 Vanilla bean
160g All-purpose flour
4g Baking powder
Mix the egg yolks with the sugar, then add the cream and vanilla.
Sift the flour and baking powder together and combine with the first mixture. Add the melted butter. Mix.
Store at room temperature.
2 COCOA CAKE MIX
Grease the cake tin and line with baking paper.
Fill one piping bag with the vanilla mixture and another with the cocoa mixture. Fill the bottom of the cake tin with one third of the vanilla mixture, then add half of the cocoa mixture lengthwise into the middle of the vanilla mixture.
Pipe in another third of vanilla mixture and put the rest of the chocolate mixture in its middle. Finish off by layering the final third of vanilla mixture across the top.
Use a knife dipped in melted butter to make a split in the cake’s surface to help it rise in the oven.
Bake at 300°F (150°C) for approx. 60 minutes.
Check it is fully baked by piercing the cake with a knife – If it comes out clean, the cake is ready. Turn out onto a rack and leave it on its side for 10 minutes so it keeps its shape.
