A creamy classic blessed by Napoleon himself found on klikk.no
According to some sources, it was Napoleon’s chef Closeau who originally developed the wonderful cake that is so loved the world over. Napoleon must have had a weakness for small, sweet pleasures. When none of the other chefs had managed to serve him a cake that was “the cake of all cakes’ he put his chief cook on a mission to develop the small creamy cake that is a favourite where ever people meet to spend some time together over a cup of tea or coffee even to day.
Myths say that the recipe with Closeau’s signature and Napoleon blessing are hidden somewhere in the prison at St Helena where Napoleon died, and that in the recipe are the small secret ingredient that makes this cake the very best. Maybe, if the myths are correct, it is rum cream there was talk about?
