The recipe for traditional Bled Slovenia cream cake sweet:
Custard pastry »Kremne rezine« creme slices
At first we must defrost two slices of thin flaty dough-we can buy in a store allready made dough, we bake this two slices of dough. One slice of dough we live as it is, another slice we cut as we like in optional sizes of custard pastry-this comes on the top of custard pastry! Dough becomes better when we put it on the other side of the flat surface for bake, and then we covered the rest of dough with the other surface for bake. With this technique we stop reducing, and making bubbles on dough.
In high bake vessel 34cm x 24cm, we put the whole plate of baked dough. Then we put gelatin in some water, to strained the gelatin. We whip 1 liter cream, to get solid cream. Boil up some milk, now we remove the milk, put in gelatin and stir it so the gelatin can melt.Now pretty fast we must coll down the milk, in this milk we allready mixed the gelly (we put the vessel in a trough wiht a cold water).
In a big vessel we whip some yolkes, then we put in some sugar and vanilla sugar now we mix all the ingridients so long till increase. In this mass we put through tiny strainer milk with melted gelly, and stir it very good. Then we add 1 liter whipped cream, with a plastic shovel we all together mix it up, and now this new cream we pour into bake vassel, in wich we allready put a plate baked flaly dough. We wait a minute, so the mass can coll down and thick it up (we can covered it up with some aluminium foil, and put it in a fridge for a half an hour). Now we whiped up half of liter of cream and smear cream, wich in that time is allready colled it up. We covered up the cream with slices of flaty dough. Before we serve, we must cut this custard pastry in a symetrical squared pieces. The last step to decorate this desert is to powder it with some castor sugar. Now we can serve this very delicious and unique sweet.
