Tastes like the most popular Russian ice cream

I’m sure you know the delicious Russian plombir ice cream, or maybe you’ve even made it yourself using my recipe. But how about a cake that tastes like that ice cream? And that’s exactly what this cake does – or more precisely, the cake cream, which is also called plombir cream. Unlike ice cream, however, it doesn’t melt and doesn’t need to be frozen. In addition, thanks to sour cream, with which it is made, the plombir cream has a slightly sour flavor and thus tastes sweet and sour.

What cake base goes instead of sponge cake?

The advantage of the plombir cream is that it combines perfectly in taste with many different cake bases. For example, instead of sponge cake, you can make the cake with puff pastry as for Napoleon cake. Bake for it then, just as for the Napoleon cake, several thin cake layers and spread them with the plombir cream. But also the choux pastry is well suited for the plombir cake. Make the dough according to the basic recipe, spread it thinly and evenly on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake a large cake base. Then cut it into several smaller cake layers to make a square cake.

Omit the sugar syrup?

I soaked the sponge cake layers for the plombir cake with the lemon sugar syrup. This makes them taste moister in the cake. Also, the lemon juice adds a slightly refreshing and aromatic note. You can also omit the sugar syrup if you find the sponge cake moist enough as it is. In this case, simply spread the cake layers directly with the plombir cream.

How to make plombir cake: tips and tricks

  • To bake the sponge cake, you will need a Ø 24 cm baking springform pan.
  • To check if the sponge is baked, use a toothpick. Insert it briefly into the center of the sponge and see if it comes out clean. Alternatively, you can use a finger to gently press on the surface of the sponge about halfway down. If it springs back after you press it and no marks remain, it’s done.
  • As vanilla for the plombir cream you can take vanilla sugar, vanilla powder, vanilla extract or vanilla bean scraped out, among others.
  • Butter and the pudding must be room warm and both about the same temperature when whipped together to make the cream, so they can combine well.
  • Be sure to chill the cake for about 2 hours after making it so the cream can set.
  • Store the plombir cake in the refrigerator. You can store it for about 3 days.
