1) 12 eggs separated in yolks and whites
2) 300 g / 11 oz of granulated sugar
3) 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
4) 300 g/ 11 oz of all-purpose flour + some extra flour for the tray
5) 500 g / 18 oz of butter at room temperature, cubed
6) 300 g / 11 oz of granulated sugar for the cream
7) 8 egg yolks for the cream
8) 80 g / 3 oz of cocoa powder
9) 100 g / 3.5 oz of granulated sugar for the caramel sheet
10) 2 tbsp of water
1) place yolks into a bowl, then put sugar over them and combine ingredients by mixer until sugar is dissolved completely
2) add vanilla extract to the bowl and mix again
3) add flour gradually while combining ingredients by hand
4) place egg whites into another bowl, then whisk them by the mixer with a pinch of salt until hard
5) add egg white to the first bowl while mixing by hand with slow rotations from bottom to top until you get a smooth dough
6) flour the bottom of a tray on the outside and stretch a thin layer of dough (you have to repeat this operation more times)
7) put the tray in the preheated oven and bake the sheet at 290 C / 550 F until golden brown, then do the same with the rest of dough
8) put all cake sheets on paper and wait until cool completely
9) in the meantime, add gradually sugar to the butter and rub ingredients to combine them thoroughly
10) when the previous step is completed, add 8 egg yolks to the bowl one by one – DO NOT add the next yolk until you had not thoroughly mixed ingredients up by hand because you’ll get curdled cream!
11) next, add gradually cocoa powder and mix ingredients by hand
12) spread a thin layer of chocolate cream over a cake sheet
12) do the same with the rest of the cream and sheets, but keep one sheet and some chocolate cream
13) cut the ends of the cake to be straight
14) cut the cake lengthwise into two equal parts, then spread some cream over one of the halves
15) put over the second half and spread on top some cream as well
16) spread a cream layer on the cake sides
17) put the last cake sheet on a paper sheet brushed with oil and draw on it shapes as shown in the video
18) put sugar for the caramel sheet in a saucepan, pour over the water and wait until it caramelizes without mixing ingredients
19) spread the liquid caramel over the drawn cake sheet, then cut immediately the sheet according to the shapes you have previously drawn – you have to work VERY FAST because the caramel hardens in a short time!
20) garnish the cake top with the caramel pieces
