Preparation steps


For the shortcrust: Pile flour on a work surface, mix with almonds, sugar and salt and make a well in the center of the flour. Cut cold butter into small pieces and place around the flour, add egg in the center. Add 2-3 spoonfuls of lukewarm water and chop all ingredients together with a knife to form small crumbs. Quickly knead by hand into a smooth dough, shape into a ball, cover in plastic wrap and cool for 30 minutes.


Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Roll out dough between 2 layers of plastic wrap and put into the pan, forming a 1.5 cm (approximately 1/2 inch) high edge. Cover shortcrust base with parchment paper and spread legumes on top. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (approximately 350°F) on the center rack for about 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan, remove legumes and parchment paper.


For the filling: Separate the eggs. Beat egg whites until stiff, gradually sprinkle in 30 grams (approximately 1 ounce) sugar.


Soak gelatin in cold water. Combine egg yolks with white wine, remaining sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch in a saucepan, heat and bring to a boil. Pull from heat and let cool slightly, then dissolve pressed out gelatin in it and stir thoroughly. Allow to cool, then stir in egg whites.

For the topping: Rinse grapes and put aside 12 grapes for decorating. Encircle shortcrust with a cake ring and cover tightly with remaining grapes. Spread cream filling on it and decorate with a cake comb.

For the garnish: Sprinkle with flaked almonds and garnish with grapes. Chill cake for 3-4 hours and then serve.
