For countertops we use 6 egg whites that beat well with a pinch of salt until they become a hard foam. Then gradually add 6 tablespoons of sugar and a vanilla sugar and mix well until it becomes like a meringue. Mix the poppy seeds with three tablespoons of flour and half a baking powder and incorporate with a spatula from bottom to top. Put the obtained composition in a tray greased and lined with baking paper and put in the oven heated to 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove and leave to cool.
The same is done with walnut countertop.
For the cream use the 12 yolks mixed with 15 tablespoons of sugar and a vanilla sugar until they become creamy, then put the bowl on steam and mix continuously until it becomes like a more consistent cream. Add cocoa and rum essence and let it boil for another 5 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
Meanwhile, mix the margarine (or butter) well, then gradually add the boiled cream and continue mixing until you run out of the boiled cream.
We start to assemble the cake: on a tray we put a wafer sheet (we divide the cream into three equal parts) we put on the wafer sheet a part of the cream then we put the walnut top, we put the cream again, then the poppy top, cream and the sheet Neapolitan.
Put something heavy over the cake (so that the wafer does not come off) and leave it to cool for a few hours, then portion it, as you prefer.
This is a delicious dessert. I highly recommend it.
The flour is mixed with baking powder and cocoa.
Separate the eggs, beat the egg whites with a powder of
salt after which the sugar is added and
mix until it hardens.
