Napoleon Cake




This is an easy version of Napoleon cake which is very popular in former soviet countries. I use condensed milk to make a cream but old style one uses so called 'boiled cream' - it's like a custard. So here we go - it's very simple, delicious and fast!

What you need:

4 rolls of Ready rolled puff pastry

3 x 400gm of sweet condensed milk

2 x 250gm of unsalted butter

Vanilla extract by taste


Step 1: Pastry..

Put each sheet of pastry (one by one) in the oven (gas mark 7) for 10 minutes. The pastry will come out all puffed up but do not worry about it, just leave it aside. Do the same with all 4 sheets and leave them to cool down.

Step 2: Cream

Put the butter in a plastic bowl and add all the condensed milk to it. Take the blender and keep on blending it till you get a smooth texture. In the end, add couple of spoonfuls of vanilla extract and stir it with a spoon. Cream is ready!

Step 3: Layers

Put the first layer on the tray and cover it with the cream - smooth it out with a spoon and add another layer on top and cover that layer with the cream as well - do the same with all the layers.

Step 4: Finishing Bit..

Get some decorative chocolates or some crushed nuts and sprinkle it on top and leave it in the room temperature over night - all the cream will absorb nicely.

    Wow this looks good! BTW there's a French pasty that's also called a napoleon that's filled with strawberry filling and barbarian creme but I like this one too!

    It could be that soviet people stole the idea from French and modified it their own way.. It is called Napoleon after all.. :-) Soviet people do wonder why it is called Napoleon but they never actually bothered to find out :-) I should google it actually :-D
