Torcik Wieluński- My Family Recipe For The Best Cake
Hi! I must admit that this recipe is very special one for me. You will not find this cake anywhere else- because it comes from my family home. Honestly it’s one of the best cake I’ve ever eaten and I decided to share this recipe with you.
Where is Wieluń?
Part of my family comes from small town in Poland – Wieluń. It’s not a very popular place but it has a very interesting history. Here, on September 1, 1939 the first bombs in Second World War felt on Wieluń’s hospital.
Nowadays you can find here a lot of beautiful historical monuments and, what is more, you can meet a lot of good people.
What’s so special about Wieluński Torcik?
While working on this recipe I’ve been thinking only about my family home. This cake was created by my mom and she bakes it for almost every family gathering. Every time I come to Wieluń and see my whole family (especially during this crazy Covid time) it’s very special moment. All our siblings live in different cities in Poland so when we finally see each other, we enjoy every hour. The Torcik Wieluński is something that can not be missing.
It’s time to explain what exactly is Torcik Wieluński. Simply there are three layers of sponge cake with delicious cream and homemade currant jam. Personally I think that the best part of this cake is chocolate icing. Slightly sour jam, sweet and delicate whipped cream and chocolate- it is perfect combination and I’m sure you will love it too. It may become yours new favorite birthday cake as it was for me when I was a child.
