How to Make CHANTILLY CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350* and grease two 9x9 cake pans.
  2. beat egg whites until flothy. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar until soft peaks form. Sift remaining 1 cup sugar with cake flour, baking soda and salt. Add chocolate,oil and 1/2 cup milk. Beat one minute on medium speed.
  3. Add egg yolks and remaining 1/2 cup milk. beat one minute until smooth. With rubber spatula gently but throughly fold in the egg white mixture.
    Pour into prepared pans and bake 30-35 minutes.
    Cool in pans on a rack for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from pans and with a sharp knife split cake layers into 4 layers.
  5. Cream Filling
  6. Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add egg and blend wel, then stir in milk slowly. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture becomes to a boil and thickens. Add butter and vanilla. Chill 30 minutes and spread 1/3 of mixture between each layer.
  7. Chantilly Frosting:
  8. Combine milk, sugar, butter, egg yolks and vanilla.
    Cook stirring constantly over medium heat for 12 minutes or untl mixture thickens. ( make sure that it is thick or it will slice right off your cake!)
    Add vanilla and chill one hour covered with a piece of plastic wrap directly over surface for proper spreading consistancy.
  9. Frost cake and sprinkle with the toasted pecan pieces and chill for 2 hours.
  10. NOTE:
    For a short cut to making this delicious cake you can use German chocolate cake mix and instant vanilla pudding and follow their directions per box.
    BUT I always make the Chantilly frosting from scratch and follow all the instructions for putting it together.. But for special occasions I think it is great to do ALL from scratch.
