    I am looking for the true "Champagne Cake", "Chocolate Champagne Cake", and Bismark recipe from Smith's Bakery in Bakersfield, Ca, or Porterville, Ca. My family has been enjoying these for generations, however, we now live in a area that has no Smith's Bakery's. Can anyone help.

    Chef Barnes' Strawberry Champagne Torte


    1 cup champagne
    4 egg yolks
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 lemon, juiced
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/4 oz. gelatine
    1/2 cup champagne
    1 vanilla bean
    4 pints fresh strawberries
    1 8-inch layer white cake


    In a sauce pan, combine 1 cup champagne, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla bean and bring to a boil. Remove vanilla bean. Mix gelatine in 1/2 cup champagne and set aside to soak. Temper egg yolks into champagne mixture and cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, add gelatine and stir until dissolved. Let cool until luke warm.

    With electric mixer, whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream into champagne mixture and mix thoroughly. To assemble: Place a thin layer of cake in bottom of cake pan. Slice strawberries in half and place the cut side against the inside rim. Fill the center of the cake with whole berries, standing up. Pour the champagne filling over the berries until covered. Chill for 3-4 hours. Un-mold and serve.
