Weekends are made for tea times and bakery. It is relaxing, you feel proud of yourself afterward, and you can enjoy what you have made. So today I wanted to share with you the recipe of a kind of cake which did become pretty famous recently, the Naked Cake. His look makes it all so simple but elegant that it will be a real pleasure for your eyes before being a pleasure for your mouth! For this recipe the ganache will be all about white chocolate while the genoise will have a vanilla flavor. So this is how I do my layered naked cake, 

First of all, you need to do a genoise. Here the list of ingredients you'll need to do that:
- 250 grammes of sugar
- 250 grammes of flour
- 8 big eggs
- two tea spoons of baking powder

Let's get started.
Mix in a bowl with flour with the baking powder. 
Separate the white from the yolk of your eggs. Beat the eggs' whites with a pinch of salt. When they are firm enough add the sugar and continue to beat the mix. 
Then add the yolks and the flour with baking powder while still mixing until you have a fluid but still firm result.
To bake it, 20 minutes in the oven at 180°C!

Now time for the the white chocolate ganache!
You'll need: - 300 grammes of white baking chocolate, finely chopped in order to make it easier to be melted.
- 25 cl of heavy cream

Boil the cream in a pot and just shed it over your chopped white chocolate. Then mix them together gently until you have a smooth and creamy result. 

When the genoise is cold enough, cut it in three equal stages and start to build your cake. One genoise, some ganache, and you go on until the third stage. Then it is up to you to make it look beautiful!
