70 g starch, vanilla
700 ml fresh cow's milk
100 g white chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
5 g gelatin
4 bananas
# chocolate Ghana:
100 ml cream
100 g of chocolate (milk and / or black)
1-2 tbsp butter optional
First prepare the base. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Whip with a mixer and them gradually add sugar until completely dissolved, and egg whites become hard snow. Of the continuing to be confused with the mixer and add the egg yolks one by one. Stirring with a wooden spoon was gradually sifted flour. The mixture was poured onto an oiled paper coated with a baking form with a diameter of 25 cm. Bake at pre-heated oven at 150-160C degrees until ready. Once the base is baking leave the oven ajar for a few minutes. While the base is cool, prepare the cream. In 100 ml milk was dissolved starch. Soak the gelatin in a little water. Remaining milk put in bowl with sugar and heat on the stove almost to boiling. With continuous stirring, a solution of starch and gelatin. Once everything is homogenized, added the broken pieces of white chocolate. Assemble the cake: cool base bisects and is one part of a form with removable walls or into the cake ring. Can put a lightly oiled baking paper on the walls, not to stick cream. On the base pour the cream and arrange the sliced ​​bananas into large pieces. The more bananas you collect, the better. The cream will envelop and cake will be higher. Place the second cake base and is harvested in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, prepare the chocolate Ghana. In saucepan, warm over low heat the cream and chocolate until chocolate is melted. Optional can add 1-2 tbsp butter. To cool ganasha faster and tighter, you can put in a large pan with ice and water. To prepare the cake, as in the original recipe of Lucy ganasha should be slightly liquid. The cake is released from the ring and paper and pour ganasha to get chocolate pendants. The cake is decorated optional. * As a beginner in the preparation of cakes, I had a minor setback in the assembly of the cake, which had to cover you with Ghana. We had to cover the entire cake with him. So I changed the quantities in preparation. I used 90 g of milk and 90 g of dark chocolate 150 ml cream and 2 tbsp butter. I put butter and less cream, because the vegetable one. Unfortunately did not get as beautiful and impressive as the original cake. * In the original recipe, Lucy used starch Dolce Prima, which according to the package is prepared with 900 ml milk, 100 of which are for reconstitution. I do not know whether it matters for the recipe, but I decided to give this clarification. * In cream can put more than one white chocolate. I use a couple of 2 100 g - this is according to your taste.

The cake is very contrary effect! Unfortunately could not photograph it, because we have prepared for the 18th mesechinka my daughter and I could not tell visitors: *Do not touch, wait first to photograph it! *:) What I do not get beautiful as the original, proved a problem for me :) All impressed by the taste. I have orders to re-preparation, in which I hope to achieve better results visually :) Please look at the source, which I give to see the true beauty of this cake! Very light, juicy, thin crusts, extremely cream and bananas. Everything comes together just great with chocolate Ghana!

The cake looks great recipe I like, and I intend soon to do and have no doubt that the taste will be gorgeous! Thanks mimetics that share this wonderful cake! :)

The cake looks very good, only to ask, the latter must not remain there very dry? Do you need extra syrup, a little, of course, not to *swim*?

I've done the cake before. The latter must not remain dry because irrigated itself cream. Really very impressive contrary, and unfortunately I did not photograph it. Cream could easily take another 1 white chocolate to feel more taste.

In the beginning, as I read the recipe and I was wondering if you should be slightly moist, not dry like cakes. The latter must become very tender and juicy. I think they do not need extra irrigation, because take the cream and Tanya said. Try the cake, easy and quick to prepare, except one night stay. Will not be disappointed :)

Thank you for the quick reply! Will try and report :)

Hello! It was very tasty, light, summer cake! :) I am happy with the result. Sponge cake is really very easy and if syrupy, will probably banging and will not put anything. In cream put a chocolate, not sorry, because without it was very sweet, and I love very sweet in general. Put and photos. :)
