This is our special recipe for our unique and fully natural Vita Talalay latex. Think of Dunlop latex as a brownie, while Talalay is more comparable to a pound cake. In fact, the similarity is uncanny. Not only does it take many years of experience to master the art of baking the perfect pound cake, but the airflow and fluffiness is very similar.

To make things simple, we will explain the baking of Vita Talalay latex as if we were at our kitchen at home. Let’s get to it, shall we?

In order to bake our Vita Talalay pound cake, we will need a few pieces of equipment. This makes the Talalay process; we will need a mixer, a cake mold, freezer, oven, a rolling pin and a tap with a rinsing head. Then we need the ingredients, very simple: milk, some honey, baking powder and an egg.

How to make it

01 MIX

First, take a large bowl and pour in the milk. It is important that it is fresh and fully natural milk which has been ecologically sourced and filtered for impurities. Add the honey and the baking powder into the bowl and begin mixing. We recommend using a mixer here. Add the egg and mix further until it is whipped into a very airy batter. This will guarantee a fluffy cake!


02 FILL

Now you will need to use the cake mold. It is important that the mold has a rectangular shape with pins to guarantee a consistent baking process. It is the classic shape for the fluffy Vita Talalay latex cake!

Fill the airy batter into the mold. Do this slowly as it will allow for additional air to get into the batter - for extra fluffiness!


03 RISE

Put the lid on the mold. Make sure it is fully sealed. This will create a vacuum in the mold, allowing for the batter to rise. The more air is whipped in the batter, the fluffier the cake will be at the end. You can even decide for a light weight or heavy weight cake! Simply put more or less batter in the cake mold. Fill between 30%-60%.

04 FREEZE

After the batter has fully risen, the airy batter will be evenly divided in the mold. Place the cake mold into the freezer. Make sure that your freezer is set to -30°C/-22°F. Leave the cake to blast-freeze in 8-10 minutes.

05 BAKE

Pre-heat your oven to 115°C/240°F. Remove the mold from the freezer into the oven. Do it quickly to avoid the batter from collapsing. You will now notice the importance of a good mold that can take a high degree of temperature change. Let the batter bake for 10 minutes.

06 DEMOLD

Take the mold out of the oven. The cake is now solid. Carefully, you do not want to tear it, remove the solid batter from the mold.

07 WASH

Now, bring the pound cake to your tap and prepare the rinsing head. Now rinse the cake. Make sure to use clean, fresh water. After the solid batter is visibly wet, take the rolling pin and roll out the water. Repeat this step 4 times.


Extra tip: Do not worry about breaking the cake, it is very stable and will jump back to its original shape no matter how hard you put pressure on it with the rolling pin. In fact, put as much pressure as you can to ensure that all of the water is out of the cake before continuing on to the next step!

08 BAKE-OFF

Place the pound cake on to the baking tray. Place it back into the oven. Make sure you have the oven set to 85°C/185°F, and leave it there for another 8.5 hours to finish!

09 TEST AND TASTE

Now tap the cake with a spoon. You will see it has a very consistent feel, and you will find it is deliciously soft. What is the best part about this Vita Talalay latex pound cake? It consists only of pure natural ingredients and is the healthy choice when it comes to cakes!

10 FROSTING

The best way to enjoy your Vita Talalay cake is to have it frosted to your taste. Every cake needs a good frosting!
