Cooking process

This recipe of French cake once caught me on the Internet. Since I love recipes from the available products and simple in cooking, I immediately tried and now periodically prepare for tea for breakfast or as a basis for home cakes. The cake is also called “Four quarters”, because it consists of four ingredients in equal parts.

Prepare the ingredients:

Ingredients for French Cake

First, weigh the eggs, for example, 4 pieces of C2.


I got about 220 grams in the shell.

Eggs for cake

Consequently, flour, sugar and butter or butter or margarine will also need 220 grams.

Measure out the right amount of all these ingredients.

Flour for cake

Cake sugar

Divide the eggs into squirrels and yolks.

Whisk the yolks with the sugar white.

Beat the yolks

Pour in a very soft butter or margarine.

Pour in butter or margarine



Sift flour and mix thoroughly.


Add whipped proteins to this mass.

Add Proteins

Interleave the proteins with a spatula or … with hands.

Interfere with proteins

Transfer the dough into a mold, greased and sprinkled with flour or a manga.

Traditionally, the French cake, as I understand it, is baked in a rectangular long form, but any one will do.

Dough for a cake in the form

Bake the cake in the oven at 180 degrees until cooked, i.e. after half an hour check it with a match or a wooden toothpick. If it’s dry, it’s ready.

Cold French cake can be decorated to taste, for example, just powdered sugar.
