I Just Made INCREDIBLE Turkish Milk Cakes (Pistachio & Caramel Flavours)


Vanilla sponge cake:
4 Eggs divided into whites and yolks
120g All purpose flour
100g Milk
100g Granulated sugar/caster sugar
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Vanilla Paste/Essence
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Cream of Tartar

Milk Soak:
260g whole milk
200g heavy cream
30g sugar

Caramel topping:
170g Heavy cream
100g sugar
20g Butter

Whipped cream
350g Heavy cream
30g Sugar

Pistachio cake:
Same as vanilla cake, except you will use:
60g All purpose flour instead of 120g
60g Ground pistachios
Green Gel food coloring

Pistachio Soak:
Milk soak with additional
75g Pure Pistachio Paste


Vanilla cake:
1- Mix together the flour, salt and baking powder
2- In a bowl, add all of the egg whites, with the cream of tartar. Whisk until foamy
3- Begin adding 70g of the sugar, one tablespoon at a time until all has been incorporated. Whisk until firm peaks are achieved
4- In another bowl, add the egg yolks and vanilla with the rest of the sugar. Whisk this together until it lightens in colour and is fluffy and airy
5- Add the milk to the eggs and mix together lightly, then sieve in the dry ingredients
6- Using a spatula and a folding motion, fold the flour into the yolks, but only until no dry spots remain. DO NOT OVERMIX
7- Add a few tablespoons of the fluffy egg whites to the cake batter and then fold together until it has thinned out
8- Fold the mixture into the rest of the egg whites until fully combined, but again DO NOT OVERMIX
9- Lay a baking sheet in a baking dish, then pour in the cake batter
10- Bake at 160c (fan on) for 25 minutes until a toothpick can be inserted and comes out clean
11- Remove the dish from the oven, then let the cake rest in the tin for 5 minutes
12- After 5 minutes, place the cake upside down on a wire cooling rack, and peel off the baking paper
13- Allow to rest for about an hour


Caramel Trilece:
1- Prepare the milk soak, by mixing together the ingredients
2- Use a skewer or something pointy, to poke holes into the top of the cake all over
3- Pour the milk soak over the entire dish, and allow it to rest and soak in for about 2 hours
4- While resting, make a caramel by melting the sugar in a small pot over low heat
5- Once it begins melting stir in the remaining sugar, and then add the butter once it starts to bubble
6- Once the butter has melted and been mixed in, stir in the cream, then turn off the heat
7- Pour it out into a bowl and allow the caramel to cool
8- Prepare whipped cream by whisking together the ingredients until firm peaks form (do not overmix)
9- Spread the whipped cream evenly over the dish
10- Pour over the caramel and spread it out into a flat layer
11- Pipe over whipped cream lines, then use a toothpick to decorate it in stripes


Pistachio Trilece
1- The cake is made the same way as the vanilla cake, except add the food coloring to the egg yolks and sift the mixture, then add any pistachio pieces left over
2- Make the soak with a blender
3- Top with whipped cream and chopped pistachios
