  • Lemon zest

Have you already achieved everything? Well now we are going to the "core" of the matter to explain all the steps to follow to make these Glory cupcakes come true.

How is the glory cake made ?:

  1. We will start by heating a saucepan with water next to 400 grams of sugar. Let it boil for 1 minute until you get a kind of syrup mixture. Add the half kilo of ground almonds with a little lemon zest and mix everything with the help of a wooden spoonful. We remove it from the fire, sprinkle all the icing sugar, wrap the mixture with transparent film and introduce it in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  2. We put the sweet potatoes in the oven for 20-30 minutes until they are well roasted. We remove their pulp and crush it with the help of a fork. After this, we put them in a saucepan with a couple of tablespoons of sugar until we get a cream. Let it rest for about 45-60 minutes and then pass it to a pastry bag.
  3. Next, we will split the mixture we have made in the first point to give it an oval shape and hollow inside. We can help ourselves with an egg carton in order to achieve the desired shape. With the help of the pastry bag, pour the sweet potato roasted with sugar in each of the portions.
  4. Finally, it is only necessary to introduce them in a preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes at a temperature of 180º. We can give the final touch with a little more icing sugar on top or with a little cinnamon to our liking.

It is recommended to take these Gloria pastries as a dessert after a copious meal accompanied by wine or a fruity liqueur.
