Then whisk the egg whites until as long as they do not appear clear trace of the corolla or blade mixer. Then for two steps introduce into proteins remaining sugar and continue to whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Now both whipped the masses need to mix: gently add the egg yolks into the whites. Please enter a third protein, stir, add the remaining mix again. After that, put the egg mixture butter, warmed up to 30 degrees, and the flour and cocoa powder. Doing all this carefully and even gently but quickly to our efforts proteins are not settled.

Prague cream

The classic Prague put oil cake chocolate cream, which should look (for guests) as a fluffy brown mass (uniform consistency, with a glossy sheen and good to keep shape). By the way, this cream recipe differs from the known oil cream with condensed milk, and he has received the appropriate name of the cake "Prague."


  • Butter - 199 g;
  • Cocoa powder - 9, 3 g;
  • Egg yolk - 21 g;
  • Sweetened condensed milk (whole sugar) - 120 g;
  • Water - 21 g;
  • Vanilla - 0, 1 g


Mix egg yolk with water (in equal amounts), add them to the condensed milk and put in a water bath. If you do not know how to organize a "bath" cream, it is done as follows. In the bowl of a larger volume is filled with water, and the water put a bowl of cream with a smaller volume. When the water boils, it heats up and that is in a small bowl: it turns the water bath.

So, boiled cream to the consistency of sour cream, and then cool it. Then lightly whisk the butter and gradually (in stages) is inserted into a chilled brew mass. At the end of whipping cream is put in cocoa powder. In the process of beating it will take about twenty minutes, and the result is a 359 gram (GOST) Prague cream.

Chocolate Lipstick

Perhaps the most difficult stage of preparing the classic cake "Prague". But the original recipe involves the use of just such a chocolate fondant.


  • Sugar - 91 g;
  • Water - 30 g;
  • Starch syrup - 14 g
  • Cocoa powder - 6 g;
  • Vanilla powder - 0, 3 g;
  • Fruit Essence - 0, 3 years

Because of the amount of food you should have 116 grams of lipstick. But because such a small amount of lipstick is hard to shake up, we can take double the rate of the specified in the recipe. Thus, mix with sugar syrup with water and heated to a temperature of one hundred and eight degrees. In a separate saucepan, heat the syrup to fifty degrees, and add it to the syrup. Further, over medium heat until the syrup is boiled hundred and fifteen degrees, and add to it the essence.

Then cool the syrup to forty degrees and stir it with a wooden ruler or at beaters for twenty minutes. Cocoa and vanilla add to the lipstick just before application on the cake.


The classic recipe is replete with instructions about the exact temperature of the products during the preparation of lipstick. For convenience, use the cooking thermometer.
