Know-how and simplicity

Cakes made with incredibly simple ingredients should be easy to make - and yet… Robert Linxe's Pleyel cake is unlike other cakes, featuring a rich chocolate mousse, made with butter and egg yolks. Ground almonds replace the flour for a firmer texture, without ever weighing the mixture down. These ingredients are incorporated into a French meringue, so similar to chocolate mousse. The final mixture is dense, with a beautifully melt-in-the-mouth texture. Baked in a rectangular and finely fluted tin (to create shape of the cake's delicate pre-cut slices), the secret to its mi-cuit texture lies in the perfect command of a "wet" cooking process, during which the cake is covered to avoid drying out. But shhh, we weren't the ones to tell you!
