Romeo and Juliet Cake
Yesterday, I just made a Romeo and Juliet cake. MMMMMM...... So good. The reason why its called Romeo is because of the Guava paste and Juliet because of the parmesan cheese). It is actually the first time that I made this type of cake. I followed a recipe I got from my mom and added my own touch to spruce it up. It came out really yummy. I wish I could share a piece with you to try over the internet for you to see how truly delicious it really is. The cake is already half way gone...
Here is the recipe for you to try for yourself.
2 tbsp margarine
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup milk
4 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2 cups guava paste (cut into cubes)
1 can condensed milk
50g shredded coconut
(Optional) 100g parmesan cheese
Preheat your oven to 350F,
Then in a big bowl mix margarine and the sugar, then add in your eggs, flour (a little at a time), milk and baking powder. Mix it all well. Then butter and flour your baking tray and pour your cake mix into the baking tray. Now, with the cake still raw put in this order the cut up cubes of guava paste breaded in four (meaning- put flour in a small bowl and put your guava paste in the bowl with the flour to be covered in flour and to remove the stickiness of the paste)
Then on top of the guava paste that has been put on the cake pour your can of condensed milk, then your shredded coconut layered on top of the condensed milk and lastly your parmesan cheese sprinkled on top (some people might choose not to use the parmesan cheese because it sounds disgusting, but that is fine, you can do it with or without the cheese but the cheese does help to remove some of the sweetness and adds to that delicious flavor)
Bake in the oven for 30 - 35 minutes. Or until you stick a knife in the center and it is not still wet but instead dry.
Note: Whenever making any cake do not ever open the oven anytime before 30 minutes or else your cake will fall.
Enjoy your Romeo and Juliet Cake this valentines day : )
