To prepare the sponge cake: Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Beat the egg yolks with half the sugar until it has dissolved. The mass should increase in volume by 2-3 times. Add some of the remaining sugar to the whites and whip, gradually adding all the sugar, until stiff peaks. The whipped egg whites should stick to the sides of the bowl and not leak.

Add the beaten egg yolks to the egg white mixture, mix and gradually add the sown flour in several steps.

Place the biscuit dough in a piping bag with a round tip of a small diameter, and spiral it onto a baking sheet 18 cm in diameter. You will have 8 shortcakes.

Bake the cakes in a preheated oven at 220°C for 5-7 minutes. Leave the ready cakes to cool.

Prepare the cream: Boil milk with vanilla sugar. In a bowl mix sugar and egg yolk. Add some warm milk and starch. Stir everything well. Pour some of the hot milk into the mass and stir it. As soon as the milk boils, pour the yolk mixture in a thin stream and make the cream. The consistency of the cream will be something like liquid semolina.

The ready cream should be put at once in a bowl and cooled. Melt chocolate in a water bath or in a micro and add to the custard, add boiled condensed milk, stir and then leave to cool.

For the praline, place the almonds and sugar in a heated ladle. Keep on the heat, stirring, until caramelized. The sugar should be completely dissolved and brown.

Place the mixture on a silicone mat or baking paper, spread evenly and cool. Carefully separate and set aside 8 nuts for decoration.

Fill a ladle with 100g of sugar and 30ml of water. Stir to combine. Use a pastry brush soaked in water to remove any sugar crystals from the sides of the ladle. Place on a fire and bring to a boil. Carefully remove the foam (if any) and continue to boil, without stirring, until a delicate caramel color. Put the ladle with the finished caramel in cold water for a few seconds to stop the boiling process. Next, wipe the ladle with a towel to prevent water droplets from getting into the caramel.

Place one biscuit cake on baking paper and pour the caramel on it, very quickly distribute it evenly over the cake. Quickly move the cake on a cutting board and before the caramel hardens cut it into 8 pieces with a knife greased with vegetable oil.

Chop the cooled nuts with a knife until they become crumbs. Put 2/3 of the nuts in a blender/grinder and grind to a dense almost paste-like mass.

Beat 250 g of room temperature butter until white, add the cooled custard and mix. At the end, add the praline and mix again until smooth. The custard turned out to be quite liquid, and I was beginning to worry that it would go slushy and nothing would come out. I added it in batches to the butter and beat it on high speed – it came out great! The cream was soft and fluffy. It didn’t drip and kept its shape :a_yahoo!

Assembling the cake: Assemble the cakes, laying them with a thin layer of cream. Top and sides of the cake also smooth out the cream. Sprinkle the sides with crocant.

On the surface of the cake with a piping bag drain around the perimeter of 8 “hats” of the remaining cream. Put a piece of caramel sponge cake on each one. On the other side lay the nuts, as if supporting the biscuit from below.

Put the cake in the fridge for several hours to soak it.

My praline turned out a bit coarse, because there is no grinder, and I ground it in a combine as finely as I could

If you whip the egg whites well there is no need for soda, the biscuit will be puffy due to the resulting foam, but there should not be a drop of egg yolk or all the efforts in vain.
