METHOD

To Prepare Lemon Cake

Melt butter and set aside to cool. Add honey, icing sugar, ground almond, cake flour and lemon zest into a mixer and mix for one minute. Create an egg mixture with U.S. egg white powder and water, followed by the rest of the ingredients. Lastly, add the cooled melted butter. Make sure the butter is not too hot or the mixture will split. Pipe into desired baking mold and bake at 170 C for 15 to 20 mins. Let the cake cool to room temperature.

To Prepare Lemon Icing Coating

Mix icing sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and olive oil. Coat the Lemon Tea cake when warm. Icing will crystalize and form a coating.

To Prepare Vanilla Sauce

Mix U.S. egg yolk powder, water and sugar and set aside. Boil cream, milk, and vanilla pod. When boiled, add a little bit of the vanilla mixture to the egg yolk mixture. Then, add it back to pot to cook until it thickens to an anglaise texture (temperature at 82 degrees). Hand blend to emulsify and chill for 3 hours before use.
