Receta auténtica y casera para la bica gallega
Os muestro cómo hacer el pastel proveniente de España llamado bica gallega. Vamos a hecar magia con pocos ingredientes simples.
- 220 g harina preparada
- 13 g polvo para hornear
- 3 huevo
- 160 ml nata para postres (confectionery cream)
- 110 g mantequilla blanda
- 220 g azúcar
- 1 cucharada jugo de limon
- un poco sal
Beat the soft butter with the sugar, until a smooth cream is obtained and add the eggs one at a time while beating continuously. Until one is absorbed, don't put in the next.
Put the cream and a spoonful of lemon juice and work with the mixer for a short time, until you get a smooth and fluffy cream.
Sift the flour with the baking powder and a pinch of salt and add it to the egg-cream mixture in parts, by stirring gently with a wooden spoon, until it is completely absorbed.
Pour it into a thin layer of about 0.6″ (1.5 cm) in a rectangular or round suitable baking pan covered with baking paper and sprinkle it with about 3-4 tbsp. sugar. The last step will guarantee us the authentic look of this cake - with a crispy, slightly cracked crust from the sugar.
Bake at 340°F (170°C) in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until it is fully baked.
Due to the high butteriness, the cake easily separates from the baking paper or directly from the baking pan, but it is delicate and tender, so be careful not to break it.
