Prajitura "Camp si munte"/ "Field and mountain" cake

>> joi, 4 noiembrie 2010

Stiu. O sa va ganditi ca are un nume ciudat. Asa este. Este o prajitura neobisnuita dar foarte buna.
Este o prajitura inventata de mine pentru o ocazie speciala: prima sustinere din cele doua a tezei de doctorat a sotului meu. Nu am sa va spun decat ca este biolog si ca ii plac mult combinatiile inedite. De aici a venit si ideea titlului dar si a retetei.
Prajitura are trei blaturi si doua creme. Doua dintre blaturi sunt colorate si sunt mai subtiri. Al treilea blat este mai gros, cu mac,  si se asaza intre cele doua mai subtiri. Cremele sunt foarte simple dar de mare efect in combinatie.

Ingrediente pentru blaturi colorate (cantitatile sunt date pentru un singur blat - pentru doua aveti nevoie de aceste cantitati dublate):

-  3 oua
- 3 linguri zahar
- 4 linguri faina
- 4 g praf de copt (1/2 pliculet)
- vanilie
- colorant

Ingrediente blat cu mac:

- 6 oua
- 6 linguri zahar
- 7 linguri faina
- 7 g praf de copt (1 plic)
- vanilie
- mac

Crema 1:

- 200 g mac macinat
- 100 g zahar pudra
- 5 linguri de lapte

Crema 2:

- 250 g frisca
- 150 g afine
- 100 g zahar pudra



I know. You'll gonna think that it has a weird title. That's wright. It's an unusual cake but a very good one. It's invented by me for a special occasion: the first presentation (out of 2) of my husband's PhD thesis. I will tell only that he's a biologist and that he likes special combinations. That's why I chose the title and I made this recipe.
My cake has three sheets of pastry and two fillings. Two sheets were colored and thin. The third sheet of pastry was thicker, with poppy seeds, and was put between the two colored sheets. The fillings were very simple but went very well together.

Ingredients for the colored sheets of pastry (I gave the quantities for a single sheet of pastry - for two you need to double them):

 - 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 4 g baking powder 
- vanilla
- food coloring (red and blue)

Ingredients for the sheet with poppy seeds:

- 6 eggs
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 7 tablespoons flour
- 7 g baking powder 
- vanilla

Filling 1:

- 200 g minced poppy seeds
- 100 g powdered sugar
- 5 tablespoons of milk

Filling 2:

- 250 g whipped cream
- 150 g blueberries
- 100 g powdered sugar



Incepem cu foile colorate. Singura diferenta intre cele doua foi este culoarea, asa ca voi explica o singura data.
Se separa albusurile. Se mixeaza bine albusurile dupa care se adauga zaharul. Se vor mixa impreuna pana cand obtinem o spuma consistenta.

We will begin with the colored sheets of pastry. The only difference between the two sheets is the color, so I will explain only once. 
We will separate the egg whites. We mix well the egg whites and after we will add the sugar. We mix the egg whites and the sugar together until we'll obtain a meringue.



Se adauga galbenusurile si colorantul si se mixeaza in continuare. Apoi se adauga pe rand vanilia, praful de copt si faina. Se amesteca bine. Compozitia obtinuta se pune intr-o tava tapetata cu hartie de copt si se baga in cuptorul preincalzit. Atentie, se coace foarte repede. Incercati daca este coapta foaia cu ajutorul unei scobitori.

We'll add the yolks and the food coloring and we'll mix well. In the end we will put vanilla, baking powder and flour. We mix very well. The composition that was obtained will be put into a tray, on a baking paper. The tray will be put in the preheated oven. Be careful, the sheet of pastry will be baked very quick. Try if the sheet is baked with a tooth pick.




Dupa ce ati copt foile colorate, coacem si a treia foaie. Procedeul este acelasi, diferenta fiind ca se adauga seminte de mac. Imagini din timpul prepararii acestei foi vedeti mai sus.

After you baked the colored sheets of pastry, we will bake the third sheet, the thicker one. The working method is the same, the only difference being that we will add poppy seeds. Images made during the process of the third sheet's preparation, you can see above.


Se prepara crema de mac. Cum? Foarte simplu! Se amesteca bine toate ingredientele.
The first filling is prepared. How? Very easy! We will mix the ingredients very well.




A doua crema se va prepara din frisca, zahar si afine. Frisca poate fi vegetala iar afinele congelate.
Fructele se paseaza cu un blender si se amesteca impreuna cu zaharul si cu frisca.
Ordinea de asamblare a prajiturii:
- foaie roz
- crema 1
- foaie cu mac
- crema 2
- foaie bleu
- zahar pudra

The second filling will be prepared of whipped cream, sugar and blueberries. The whipped cream can be a vegetable one. blueberries will be minced with a blender and mixed with whipped cream and sugar.
The cake will be assembled like this:
- pink sheet of pastry
- filling 1
- poppy seeds sheet of pastry 
- filling 2
- blue sheet of pastry
- powdered sugar


Aceasta prajitura a avut un mare succes. Din pacate nu am mai multe poze cu ea deoarece a fost terminata la o ora foarte tarzie.  Si cum este o prajitura vesela si se apropie Craciunul, poate isi face loc printre bunatatile de pe masa si o voi poza din nou! :))


This cake had a great success. Unfortunately I don't have many pictures with it because it was finished very late in the night. And being a colorful and nice cake and the holidays are coming, maybe it will be again on the table and we'll have more pictures! :))

Fataaaa, m-ai dat pe spate cu campul si cu dealul tau...sper ca si pe domnul doctor ;-)
De ce nu ai facut pozele a doua zi dis-de-dimineata la lumina soarelui? Si eu gatesc noaptea, dar a doua zi sunt pe balcon, la poze.

Liana, nu am mai avut ce poza dimineata...La ora 6 era deja plecata spre Bucuresti. Am terminat-o la 4 dimineata, deci nu aveam nici un pic de lumina.
