Even when you see the ingredients, you will notice that as appealing as this salty cake is, a look at the skull on the top will make you doubt … Do you dare to prepare it? Ask your children or nephews for help, who can help you by cutting out the puff pastry skull.
As we have learned by reading the recipe in the Witch’s Manual, from Malcolm Bird, on which we have based ourselves to make this cake, we start by chopping the onion and mushrooms in julienne and we poach them on high heat in the pan. Do not be scared if it seems a lot because the mushrooms contain a lot of water and decrease a lot. When golden brown, add the chopped hard-boiled egg and flour and stir well.
Then, we add the milk and the beaten egg and mix as if we were making a béchamel until a thick dough is obtained. Let it warm while we preheat the oven to 220ºC. In a mold or saucepan that we can put in the oven, we put the base of breeze pasta extending it so that it covers the bottom and on a little by the edges. You can also make the base with puff pastry but it will be more fragile and brittle when you take it out.
Fill the base with the mushroom and onion dough and cover with a layer of puff pastry making sure that it fits with the base and is tightly closed. We close by pressing the edges with a fork. We cut a skull with more puff pastry and place it on the top of our salty cake, sticking it with beaten egg. With a sharp knife, we open the hollows of the eyes, the nose and the stripes of the mouth, which will make chimneys so that the vapors of the cake can escape while baking.
We take advantage of the cuts to make crossed bones that we place under the skull. We cook the cake in the preheated oven at 220ºC for about 30 minutes, until the cake looks golden and appetizing, despite its terrifying decoration. When we bring it to the table, we put a low voice and say to the guests: ” Here is the poisoned cake of the witch … who dares to try it? ”
