Charlotte Cake

Perhaps some of you (like Antony) may never heard of Charlotte Cake before (not everybody is like Don) (I am sure Don knows Charlotte Cake well). After seeing Laurent's students making Charlotte Cake for a few times, I decided to that I want one.

Instead of making me one, Laurent told me to make one during one of his less busy classes, however, he would not make one for me. So I did. Except his recipe was for Raspberry Charlotte Cake. For some reason, I don't like raspberries. As a matter of fact, I am not keen on any berries, except strawberries.

Strawberry and Chocolate Charlotte Cake

So I requested that I want a strawberry one, Laurent agreed. Then I requested that I want one with two different layers, Laurent was not very happy about that but agreed. I then told Laurent that the plain pattern (outside) was boring, I want to make some patterns. Laurent told me that traditionally, it was plain colour, however, he agreed to guide me on adding food colour.

So here I have it, the very unique Strawberry and Chocolate Charlotte Cake. My very first Charlotte Cake I ever made. (I know that perhaps I shall simply follow the "official" recipe when making the first one...)

The cake taste nice, however there are still rooms for improvement: the strawberry part is not strong enough, and the food colour for outside was a bit too pink.

Don't worry, I'd never heard of Charlotte Cake before this. Looks good though!

I researched the name, and it may be named after an English Queen or a Russian Princess. It is usually a dessert rather than a cake. A famous one is known as Charlotte Russe, the Russe meaning Russia.
