en un tazón pequeño, tamiza la fécula de maíz y el cacao en polvo. mezclalos bien.

























in another bowl whisk the butter until it gets light and creamy. add half of the sugar and whisk until the butter and sugar combine into a homogeneous mixture.
en otro tazón bate la mantequilla hasta que quede ligera y cremosa. agrega la mitad de azúcar y bate hasta que la mantequilla y el azúcar se convierten en una mezcla homogénea.










add the egg yolks and whisk for couple more minutes.
añade las yemas de huevo y bate por unos par de minutos más.

    1. evka, mne kolacik velmi chutil, bol viac horky nez sladky...tym, ktori maju radsej sladsie by som doporucila pouzit 70 alebo menej percentnu cokoladu a poprasit ho praskovym cukrom :)
      a tanierik som kupila v tescu :)
