Ingredients for the dough:
  • 3 egg whites (about 100 grams)
  • 100 grams of sugar
  • 100 grams of almond flour
  • 30 grams of wheat flour
  • salt

Mix the egg whites with the salt until fluffy.

Add the sugar and continue mixing until you have a nice meringue.


In a separate bowl mix the wheat flour with the almond flour.


Slowly incorporate the flour mix into the egg whites.


Divide the dough in 3 parts. One can be smaller.

Bake each layer in the preheated oven at 180 Celsius degrees for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  • 250 grams of strawberry (you can also use frozen strawberries)
  • 250 grams of ricotta cheese
  • 100 grams of sugar
  • 3 gelatin foils ( about 4-5 grams)

Mash the strawberries and mix them with the sugar. Put it at slow fire to dissolve the sugar. Remove from fire and add the gelatin and mix until dissolved.


Add the ricotta cheese and mix until well incorporated.


Put it aside to rest.

  • 400 grams of canned peaches
  • 300 grams of Philadelphia cheese (or a similar type of creemy cheese)

  • 4 gelatin foils (6-7 grams)

Strain the peaches and mash them.


Add the sugar and put it at slow fire until the sugar dissolves. Remove from fire and add the gelatin and mix until well incorporated.


Add the cheese and mix until well incorporated.


Assembling the cake:

In a detachable metal circle for cakes put the first layer of baked dough, then add the strawberry filling.
Cover and put it in the fridge for an hour or two.
