- 1 1/2 cup maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)
- 10 egg whites, at room temperature
- 1 Pinch of cream of tartar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups cream (35% M.F.)
- 1/4 cup maple sugar
- A few drops of vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 230 °C (450 °F).
- Line a 23-cm (9-in) springform pan with parchment paper, leaving 5 cm (2 in) of overhang. Do not butter the pan or the cake will not rise. Set aside.
- In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the maple syrup to a boil without stirring until a candy thermometer registers 115 °C (240 °F). Put a wooden spoon in the saucepan to prevent the caramel from bubbling up and overflowing.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Pour in the hot maple syrup in a thin stream, continuing to whip briskly.
- Dilute the cornstarch in the vinegar, add the vanilla and fold into the maple-egg white mixture. Whip for 1 minute. Turn off the oven.
- Pour the batter into the pan and bake in the now-off oven overnight, without opening the oven door. (Opening the door will make the cake fall). Unmould.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together all the ingredients until stiff peaks form.
- Ice the cake with the maple frosting and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
