Ingredients for the glaze:

0,5 butter cubes

2 spoons of cocoa

3 spoons of powdered sugar

1. Masuria cake:

We grind the nuts or chop them finely. Initially, you need to mix the eggs with sugar. On the dough board, chop the butter and flour, add grated eggs. Mix the ground nuts with baking powder and add to the dough. We earn ingredients, then put it in the fridge for approx. 0,5 hours. After removing from the refrigerator, divide the dough into 3 parts, we roll each one separately and bake it 3 pancakes on separate trays. After baking the pancakes, translate them into the mass, we put glaze or frosting on top.

2.Pudding mass:

Using a mixer, beat the egg yolks with sugar. Gradually we add flour and pudding. Add ¼ of milk to the mass. Boil the rest of the milk. Add the grated yolks to the boiled milk, stirring intensively all the time until, until the mass starts to "buzz". Set aside to a cool place to cool down. Then we grate the butter, to which we gradually add a tablespoon of pudding mass.

3. Chocolate glaze:

Melt the butter in a pot and add sugar and cocoa. We mix, we cook and cool it down (but yes, so that it does not freeze). Add to the boiled and cooled glaze 2 tablespoons of cold water.
