Sounds yummy love to give it a try.. one question?? Is that 1/4 cup cinnamon?
Sounds good. It says 3/4 egg yolks. Is that 3/4 cup or 3 to 4 yolks. How many?
Sounds good, I would like to know the answers to the above questions as well as how much rum goes into the syrup and when do you add the almond extract?
i would like the answers to all these questions also. sounds so wonderful. thanks
hi!!! please i have the same question about the egg yolks.how many? thanks
Sorry, it's 3/4 cups of egg yolks. That's about 12 to 14 eggs depending of size.
ChristieC: Sorry about that. You can substitute rum for the almond extract in the syrup. You will mix in your choice when you remove the sugar and water mixture from heat. Choice only one. If you prefer not to have so much rum you can divide it; 1 1/2 tbsp. of rum amd 1 1/2 tsps. of almond extract.
Also I did not mention, because this is a pound cake and I use syrup to moisten it, I use a 10" round pan, with 3" height. If you are going to stack this cake use less syrup to keep the firmness needed. I have no experience with thinner pans but if you are going to use a thinner pan use less syrup, try 1/2 cup per pan.
This recipe is based on Puerto Rico's traditional wedding cake recipe. We only use 3" or 4" height pans. If anyone tries it please let me know feedback.
your cake sounds yummy. What is cinnamon extract?
Cinnamon extract is similar to almond extract or vanilla extract. It come in gallons and some stores have smaller bottles for retail sale. If you do not find it just substitute with vanilla or butter extract.
HOla! Soy de Puerto Rico pero vivo en Indiana y queria saber cual es la receta del bizcocho tradicional mojadito. Siempre se usa ron? y como es cuando es con pina? Gracias
yadiraliz: Hi, do not worry I will be posting the traditional recipe soon. About the rum question, well not always it is used. You can substitute it with almond extract or half almond and half rum. Remember some clients do not consume rum. It all depends on your clients. But if you want the original recipe, the original flavor - rum is the key. About the pineapple I have no idea I have never used it or tasted it; and I have been living in PR for over 30 years. But if you do find out let me know.
same question as bcake1960 - is that 1/4 c cinnamon powder???
let me know when you post the traditional recipe, i can wait to try it. Thanks you!
WOULD'NT IT MATTER IF YOU MIX THE BATTER FIRST (THE MOLECULES OF THE FLOUR WILL EXPAND AS SOON AS IT IS MIXED WITH THE EGGS), THEN PREPARE THE EGGS WHITES MERINGUE? OR SHOULD I HAVE THE MERINGUE READY FOR THE BATTER TO BE FOLDED INTO?
awela prepare the batter first, the eggs whites are the last part of the recipe. You can't have the meringue waiting to much or the meringue will be liquid.
