On the other hand, there is one more that should definitely be mentioned here. The dessert I am talking about is WZ, or in other words Wuzetka. The cake is really delicious, easy to make and all the family members will love it. Even kids 🙂
What is Wuzetka anyway?
Wuzetka is a simple cake made from 2 layers of chocolate sponges and a fluffy whipped cream between them.
The chocolate layers are made from flour, eggs, sugar, and cocoa. The whipped cream between the layers is made from double cream, powdered sugar, and gelatine. Thanks, to the gelatine the cream holds its shape and does not melt so quickly.
Once the chocolate sponge layers and the whipped cream are assembled, the top of the cake is soaked in either alcohol or black tea and then covered with a thin layer of jam or marmalade.
The top of the cake is covered with chocolate frosting and a whipped cream swirl is usually added on top of it. Sometimes you can find Wuzetka with the letters WZ on top.
Where does Wuzetka come from?
The history of Wuzetka started probably after the Second World War in Warsaw. One of the theories says that the name Wuzetka comes from the abbreviation WZC of the Warsaw Confectionery Plants (Warszawskie Zakłady Cukiernicze).
Another theory says that the name comes from the W-Z route in Warsaw. The W-Z stands for Wschód-Zachód which means East-West in English.
