The Soviet recipe for Napoleon cake is the most delicious of all. My family loves the homemade custard option the most, but my colleague only recognizes condensed milk. Each housewife, of course, has her own cherished recipe, migrated from her mother's culinary notebook. Someone, for example, generally sandwiches crispy cakes with homemade jam or preserves. But, in my opinion, nothing beats a fragrant vanilla custard!
Cake "Napoleon" is a rather laborious dish. You can't say that you can cook it for one or two. However, the result is worth it, because the lush dessert with crispy cakes and delicate cream will please the whole family.
