Homemade Raffaello Cake. Step by step recipe
- This jelly cake is prepared using our usual thickener - gelatin. First you need to soak the gelatin in cold water.
- Pour cream into a pan with a thick bottom and add sugar. Stirring, bring the creamy mass to a boil, but in no case boil.
- Remove the cream from the heat and add the swollen and expressed gelatin to them. Stir the gelatin until completely dissolved.
- Since our cake is cooked without baking, you need to take ready-made cookies. Separately, grind the cracker into crumbs. You can do this with a rolling pin by placing cookies in a plastic bag. Raffaello cake cracker should not be salty. It can also be replaced with any other cookie.
- Pour melted butter and a couple of tablespoons of water into the cracker crumbs.
- Mix everything thoroughly until smooth.
- We transfer the mass from cookies and butter to a split mold. Pre-cover it with parchment paper.
- Well level and ram the mass of cookies. This will be the basis for our homemade cake.
- We remove the finished base in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Tip. You can put cakes of cookies for 10 -15 minutes in the freezer.
- In a container with cream and gelatin, add ricotta cheese, Philadelphia and condensed milk.
Tip. Ricotta and Philadelphia cheeses can be replaced with any other cream cheese. Even cooked by yourself. You can find the recipe for homemade mascarpone cream cheese on our site “I love to cook”. The main thing is that the cheese is tender, without harsh acidity.
- Add coconut flakes to the cheese mass - this will be the filling for our Raffaello cake. Since the cake contains a lot of cheese, it is also called cheese cake without baking.
Tip. It is better to take coconut flakes with a high fat content - it will be softer and tastier.
- Using a mixer, beat the cheese mass to a homogeneous consistency.
- We shift the whipped cream and cheese mass onto the base for a cracker cake.
- Level the surface and put the finished cake in the refrigerator for several hours.
- When the creamy coconut mass for the Raffaello home cake solidifies well, transfer it to a dish or cake stand. This is done very easily, thanks to the detachable shape and parchment paper.
- Decorate the finished cake with coconut and Raffaello candies. You can also use almond flakes, crumbs from waffles and even whipped cream for decoration. By the way, you can also find the Rafaello homemade candy recipe on our website “I Love Cooking”.
Homemade jelly cake can also be frozen - you get an ice cream cake. This dessert can be prepared in the form of a cake, or can be served personally, like cakes. The taste of this will not change, and the presentation will be unusual. This cake is just a wonderful light dessert. It turns out moderately sweet, very tender and airy.
