An Italian dessert made of soft and fluffy cake with custard cream filling. This cake is traditionally served during Women’s Day in Italy and is also connected  to mimosa flowers. A beautiful, attractive and delicious dessert that will surely make every woman happy.



7 large eggs
1 cup flour
1/3 cup of potato flour
1 cup of sugar
1 full tablespoon of vanilla sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder


Separate the yolks from the egg whites. Place the egg whites in a bowl and mix until they form a light foam. While mixing at the highest speed of the mixer, start adding a spoonful of sugar (each next spoon should be added only when the previously added portion is completely dissolved). Add the yolks one by one into the beaten foam. Sift in both flours and baking powder through a sieve and add a spoonful into the egg mass. It should also be done very gently or beat at a low speed so that the previously beaten egg does not lose its fluffiness. Line the bottom of a 2 springform pan with a diameter of 20-21 cm with a baking paper and divide the dough into it.Place into the oven preheated to 170ºC and bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the toothpick inserted is dry. Allow to cool. Cut both cakes into two parts. In one part of the cake, carefully slice the brown on top and sides of the cake. Slice and cut into small cubes. Set aside.

Custard Cream:


¾ cup of milk
¾ cup of cream 30%
4 egg yolks
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon of vanilla sugar
2 ½ tablespoons of flour


Combine the milk and cream into a small saucepan and simmer into a low heat. Do not boil. Turn off the heat and let it cool to warm. Whisk the egg yolk, sugars and flour in another saucepan until well blended. Pour in the milk mixture and simmer into a low heat, whisking together until thickens. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Transfer into a glass bowl and cover. Chill for at least 2 hours.

Whipped Cream:


300 ml cream 30%, chilled
powder sugar to taste


Pour the cream into a metal bowl. Whip until stiff whipped cream is obtained. Divide into two parts.

Assembling the cake:

Place the first layer of the cake into the cake board. Spread half of the whipped cream and 4 tablespoons of custard cream. Place the second layer of the cake and repeat the process. Top with the third layer and cover evenly with remaining custard cream. Gently cover the cake by tapping it with little cakes using hands. Dust with powdered sugar 🙂
