Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
  • Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff and set aside
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks until very light in color
  • Slowly beat in the sugar
  • Mix in the vanilla
  • In a small bowl, mix together the farina and bread crumbs
  • By hand, fold the farina mixture into the egg yolks
  • In the small bowl, combine the ground pecans and baking powder, then fold this mixture into the batter
  • Finally fold in the beaten egg whites
  • Spread the batter in prepared pans
  • Bake 35 - 40 minutes, until the cake is lightly browned on top and springs back when lightly touched in the center.
  • Remove the pans to wire racks, carefully run a small knife or spatula around the inside edge of the pan.
  • Cool 15 - 20 minutes before removing the cakes from the pans; cool completely.
  • Meanwhile back at the ranch; place the heavy cream, confectioners sugar and vanilla in a chilled mixing bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer, whip the cream - whip it good!! LOL
  • until very stiff - the cream, not you!!!
  • Spread some of the whipped cream on bottom layer; add the top layer and frost all over with remaining whipped cream.
  • Per serving - a lot of calories and a lot of fat, 1 gram fiber!!!

    Jett, have you made this one yet? It sounds *so* intriguing and I'm ready to make it. I have both "cream of wheat" as well as the farina/semolina flour. Wonder which? Either way---I'm on this one in the coming week. I can't wait...--Kn0x--

    a first I thought this deserved a 5 just for the cool name...but then there is all the info on farina..that deserves a 5... but the cake itself sounds wonderful and I can easily convert it in to gluten free so that deserves a 5... I wonder can I give you a 20???
