Cat's Eyes cake - recipe with step-by-step photos

Ingredients for the dough:
  • 400 grams of flour
  • 150 grams of butter
  • 130-150 milliliters of water
  • 15 grams of fresh yeast
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 spoons with honey
  • some salt

Ingredients for the filling
  • 100 grams of crushed walnuts
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 spoons with sugar
  • jam

Mix the yeast with the water, the honey and 1 spoon with flour. Let it rest for a few minutes in a warm place.

Mix the flour with the salt and the butter at room temperature.

Add the egg yolks and the fresh yeast mixture and mix. Make a non sticky dough. Let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Divide the dough in 3 equal parts.

Prepare the filling:
Beat the egg whites with the sugar. Add the crushed walnuts and mix.

Spread one piece of dough on the table. Spread jam all over the dough and roll the dough from both sides from exterior to interior. Don´t unite the two sides of rolled dough - keep some space between them (see photo below). Fill that space with the egg whites/walnuts composition.

We used raspberry, plum jam and apricot jam. One type of jam for each piece of the dough.

Put the tray in the oven at 180 Celsius degree for 25 minutes or until baked.

Above you can spread some powdered sugar before serving.
