Ladies’ caprice cake
Based on my grandmother’s recipe


5 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
125 g butter
1 dose of vanilla
250 g of plain yogurt
1 sachet of baking powder
2 cups of flour

 5 egg whites
6-8 tablespoons of sugar
1 dose of vanilla
½ cup jam or marmalade
50 g of walnuts


Cream the egg yolks and sugar using an electric mixer. Then stir in the butter, vanilla and yogurt. While whisking, gradually add the flour and baking powder (both sifted).

Pour the mixture into a large baking dish and smooth out (my mold measured 32 by 20 cm).

Bake at 180°C until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick, inserted in the middle, comes out dry (30 to 40 minites).

Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks with a pinch of salt. Gradually add the sugar, without interrupting the mixer. Flavor with vanilla (my grandmother didn’t put any).

While the cake is still warm, spread the jam of your choice on top (I had green fig jam), sprinkle evenly with chopped walnuts and cover with a thick, even layer of beaten egg whites. Make waves with the back of a tablespoon.

Return the Ladies’s caprice cake in the oven and continue baking until the top of the egg whites is golden brown (10-15 minutes).

Let cool completely before serving.
