Valentine´s Day Cake

1 scant cup sugar
6 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 large egg whites
1 1/8 cups all purpose flour, sifted
Butter for the pan

Beat the sugar and the egg yolks together until they are very pale in colour; mix in the vanilla. In a separate bowl beat the egg whites to stiff peaks. Delicately fold them into the egg mixture, turning it over from the bottom to the top. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture. When it is incorporated pour the batter into the heart-shaped pan. Bake until the cake is golden and has begun to pull away from the sides of the pan. When it is cold cover with a custard sauce:

2 cups milk
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
6 egg yolks
1 scant cup sugar
4 tablespoons sifted all-purpose flour.

Bring the milk to the boiling point, add the vanilla and remove from the heat. In a large bowl beat the egg yolks together with the sugar until the mixture is pale, then add the flour. Very slowly pour the hot milk into the egg mixture. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and stir constantly- do not let it boil. Remove from the heat and let it cool. Drop it over the cake and decorate with raspberries.

Note: You can cook the cake in two pans and use the cream and raspberries in the middle, too.

Don´t forget to butter and flour the pan in advance.
Bon appetit!
