Iata ca azi vine randul unei alte retete pentru masa de Craciun. M-am gandit sa va prezint o reteta care se face repede si usor dar care este de mare efect.
Si ce prajitura poate fi mai potrivita decat una cu fructe uscate si coji de portocale?
Looks like today it's the turn of another recipe for Christmas dinner. I thought to present you a recipe that is quick and easy but is very impressive.
And what cake could be more appropriate than one with dried fruit and orange peel?
-6 linguri de faina
-6 linguri de zahar
-5 g praf de copt
-coaja de portocala
Ingrediente sos caramel:
-7 linguri de zahar
-50 g unt
-3 linguri lapte condensat
-50 ml brandy Ararat
-fistic pentru decor
Ingredients for dough:
-6 tablespoons of flour
-6 tablespoons sugar
-5 g baking powder
Caramel sauce ingredients:
-7 tablespoons sugar
-50 g butter
-3 tablespoons condensed milk
-50 ml brandy Ararat
-pistachios for decoration
For start I cut the apricots, dates and orange peel in small cubes.
I separated egg whites and yolks. Mix the egg whites until you'll obtain a dense foam then add sugar and continue mixing. You will get a hard foam in which you'll add cloves, cardamom and cinnamon pounded in a mortar. Also now you'll put vanilla, baking powder and egg yolks. The mix until smooth then put flour and continue; check that no lumps of flour remained.
Half of the composition is put in the tray that was lined with baking paper. Then put dried fruits and orange peels mixed with some flour. Over the dried fruits put the rest of the composition and level with a spoon. Bake the cake at average temperature in the oven which was preheated before.
After the spongecake is baked, the caramel sauce will be prepared. Sugar will me caramelized in a pan, stirring continuously.
When the sugar is caramelized, the pan is taken aside and the butter is added. Stir well.
Then add condensed milk and homogenize. In the end add brandy and stir well in order to obtain a quite fluid sauce.
We loved it. Flavors, textures and colors blend perfectly when cake is served.
