Rulada cu banane/Cake roll with bananas

>> luni, 25 ianuarie 2016

Acum cativa ani era la moda o reteta de rulada cu banana si cocos. Nu am gasit reteta si nici mama nu isi aduce aminte cum se facea. Asa ca mi-am facut propria mea varianta. Fara cocos pentru ca nu aveam prin casa.
Few years ago it was trendy to bake a cake roll with banana and coconut. I didn't find a recipe and my mum didn't remember how it was made. So I create my own recipe of banana cake roll. Without coconut because I didn't had any.

Ingrediente blat:
-4 oua
-4 linguri de zahar
-3 linguri de faina
-2 linguri de cacao
-5 g praf de copt (1/2 plic de praf de copt)
-vanilie
Ingrediente umplutura:
-250g ricotta
-5-6 felii de ananas din compot
-2 linguri de zahar pudra
-vanilie
-2 banane
Ingredients for batter:
-4eggs
-4 tablespoons of sugar
-3 tablespoons of flour
-2tablespoons of cocoa
-5 g baking powder(1/2 sachet)
-vanilla
Ingredients for filling:
-250g ricotta
-5-6 slices of pineapple in light syrup
-2 tablespoons of powdered sugar
-vanilla
-2 bananas
 Am separat albusurile si am mixat bine pana am obtinut o spuma. Apoi am adaugat zaharul si am continuat sa mixez pana cand spuma a devenit tare. A venit randul galbenusurilor si al vaniliei sa le incorporez. In final am adaugat faina, cacao si praf de copt si am mixat pana la omogenizare.
Intr-o tava am pus hartie de copt si am turnat compozitia. Am copt blatul la 150 de grade Celsius timp de 10 minute. Inainte de a scoate blatul din cuptor am incercat sa vad daca e copt cu o scobitoare, cum fac de obicei.
Apoi am rulat blatul cu ajutorul hartiei de copt si l-am lasat sa se raceasca. Inainte de a fi folosit acesta se va desprinde usor de pe hartie. Apoi se va pune crema. Rularea se face usor deoarece blatul are deja forma si elasticitatea necesara.
Crema am preparat-o la rece. Feliile de ananas le-am facut piure cu mixerul vertical. Apoi l-am amestecat cu ricotta, zaharul si vanilia. Am obtinut o crema aromata si omogena pe care am intins-o pe tot blatul. La un capat al blatului am pus bananele peste crema. Am rulat blatul usor si in final am invelit rulada obtinuta in folie. Rulada am lasat-o de pe o zi pe alta in frigider si am servit-o a doua zi cand s-a taiat foarte frumos. Se poate pudra cu zahar, decora cu frisca sau ciocolata.
I separated the egg whites and I mixed well until I obtained a foam. After that I added the sugar and I continued to mix until the foam thickened. Then I incorporated the egg yolks and vanilla. In the end I put the flour, cocoa and baking powder and I mixed until the composition became homogeneous. 
In a baking tray I put some baking paper and I poured the composition. I baked the sponge cake at 150 Celsius degrees for 10 minutes. Before taking out the sponge cake I verified if it's baked with a toothpick, as I usually do.
After that I rolled the sponge cake with the baking paper and I left it to cool off. Before using it, take the paper easily and after that put the cream. The rolling is made easily because the sponge cake has the shape and the elasticity already.   
I prepared the cream without boiling. Pineapple slices were transformed in puree with a vertical mixer. I mixed the puree with ricotta, powdered sugar and vanilla. I obtained a flavorful and homogeneous filling which was spread all over the spongecake. At one end of the spongecake I put the bananas over the spread filling. I rolled easily and in the end the obtained cake roll was covered with plastic foil. I left the cake roll in the fridge until the next day when I served it and it was very nice and easy to cut. It can be served powdered with sugar or decorated with chocolate or cream. 

 Sper sa va placa si voua pe cat le-a placut celor care au gustat-o prima data. Pofta buna!
I hope you'll like this cake roll as much as the ones that tasted first did. Bon appetit!

Jeleu de fructe rosii/Red fruits jelly

>> luni, 18 ianuarie 2016

Se intampla uneori sa tii in frigider diverse alimente pe care le-ai cumparat fara un scop precis sau care au ramas dupa ce ai facut o reteta. Ei bine, eu m-am ales cu trei rodii mari si o mana de fructe de padure congelate.
Marturisesc faptul ca sunt mare fan suc de rodii dar inca nu am descoperit o metoda de a-l prepara fara a transforma bucataria intr-un camp de lupta. Oricate filmulete am vazut pe internet cu metode eficiente de desfacere a acestui fruct, se pare ca pentru mine nu merge nimic. Cu toate astea am reusit sa curat cumva cele trei rodii mari pe care le aveam si sa le transform impreuna cu fructele de padure intr-un desert acrisor.
It happens sometimes to keep in the fridge various foods which were bought without a precise purpose or which remained after you cooked some other recipe. Well, I had three big pomegranates and some frozen forest fruits.
I must admit I am a big fan of pomegranate fresh juice but I still didn't found a method to prepare it without transforming my kitchen in a fighting field. I saw many short movies on the internet with efficient methods of cutting and peeling these fruits but it seems that nothing is suitable for me. Despite this I managed somehow to cut the three pomegranates that I had in my fridge and to transform them together with the forest fruits in a sweet and sour dessert.

Ingrediente:
- 3 rodii mari
-200 g fructe de padure
-5 linguri de zahar
-50 ml apa
-5g gelatina
Pentru decor:
-biscuiti speculoos
-decoratiuni din caramel (din 100g zahar)
Ingredients:
-3 big pomegranates
-200g forest fruits
-5 tablespoons of sugar
-50 ml water
-5g of gelatin
For decorations:
- speculoos biscuits
-caramel decorations (made of 100 g sugar)
Am pus rodiile, fructele de padure, zaharul si apa intr-un vas la fiert, timp de aproximativ 40 de minute. Dupa ce fructele au fiert, compozitia a fost strecurata si pasata printr-o sita.
Gelatina am hidratat-o cu o lingura de apa intr-un pahar. Apoi am adaugat-o in vasul in care am pus piureul de fructe si am amestecat bine. Compozitia se incalzeste usor timp de cateva minute. Atentie-nu se va fierbe deoarece gelatina isi pierde propietatile.
Jeleul obtinut se pune in recipiente monoportii si se lasa la racit. Apoi se decoreaza cu biscuiti sfaramati si caramel.
I put the pomegranates, forest fruits, sugar and water in a pot, to boil, for about 40 minutes. After they boiled, the composition was strained and mashed through a strain. 
I hydrated the gelatin with a tablespoon of water, in a glass. I put the gelatin in the pot where earlier I put the fruit puree and I stirred well. The composition will be warmed for few minutes. Pay attention-you mustn't boil the composition because the gelatin will loose its properties.
The jelly that was obtained will be put in mono portion recipients and will be left to cool off. When is ready, the jelly can be decorated with biscuits crumbs and caramel decorations.

Pofta buna!
Bon appetit!

Rulada cu fragute/Cake roll with wild strawberries

>> luni, 11 ianuarie 2016

In ultimul timp am incercat tot felul de retete de dulciuri printre care si mai multe variante de rulade. Unele dintre ele au iesit foarte gustoase, motiv pentru care m-am gandit ca merita incercate si de altii.
Rulada cu fragute este foarte parfumata si are o crema fina, usor de facut chiar si de cei ce nu se pricep prea bine sa faca dulciuri.
In the past few days I tried all kinds of dessert recipes including several types of cake rolls. Some of them were very tasty, and that's why I thought that it would be interesting to be tried by others too. 
The cake roll with wild strawberries was very flavorful and it has a soft filling, so easy to be made also by the ones that are not very skilled in baking desserts.

Ingrediente blat:
-4 oua
-5 linguri de faina
-5 g praf de copt (1/2 pachet)
-4 linguri de zahar
-vanilie
Ingrediente crema:
-250 g ricotta
-150 g unt moale
-2 linguri de zahar pudra
-100 g fragute
-vanilie
Am separat albusurile si am mixat bine pana am obtinut o spuma. Apoi am adaugat zaharul si am continuat sa mixez pana cand spuma a devenit tare. A venit randul galbenusurilor si al vaniliei sa le incorporez. In final am adaugat faina si praf de copt si am mixat pana la omogenizare.
Intr-o tava am pus hartie de copt si am turnat compozitia. Am copt blatul la 150 de grade Celsius timp de 9-10 minute. Inainte de a scoate blatul din cuptor am incercat sa vad daca e copt cu o scobitoare, ca de obicei.
Crema nu necesita fierbere. Am pus untul moale intr-un vas si am mixat pana am obtinut o spuma. Am adaugat zaharul pudra si am mixat pana la dizolvare. Apoi am adaugat ricotta pe care am scurs-o bine inainte si vanilia. Am mixat pana la omogenizare. In final am pus fragutele, amestecand usor cu o spatula de silicon.
Apoi am rulat blatul cu ajutorul hartiei de copt si l-am lasat sa se raceasca. Inainte de a fi folosit acesta se va desprinde usor de pe hartie. Apoi se va pune crema. Rularea se face usor deoarece blatul are deja forma si elasticitatea necesara.

Mini ardei cu branza proaspata si trufe/Mini peppers with ricotta cheese and truffles

>> luni, 4 ianuarie 2016

Anii trecuti am postat multe retete inainte de Craciun si inainte de Anul Nou. Anul ce tocmai a trecut am revenit dupa o lunga pauza insa am preferat sa imi petrec vacanta alaturi de cei dragi si sa ma concentrez pe un nou capitol al vietii mele. Va doresc un an nou plin de fericire, sanatate si multe realizari, asa cum imi doresc si mie si celor dragi! La multi ani!
La inceput de an vreau sa va propun o reteta simpla si de mare efect-mini ardei umpluti cu branza proaspata si trufe.
In the past few years I posted many recipes before Christmas and New Year's Eve. The year that just passed meant my coming back after a long period of time but I preferred to spend my holidays with my dear ones and to concentrate on a new chapter of my life. I wish you a new year full of happiness, health and many accomplishments, as I wish for myself and my dear ones! Happy New Year!
For the start of this year I would like to propose you a simple and interesting recipe-mini peppers with ricotta cheese and truffles.

Pentru aceasta reteta am avut nevoie de:
- mini ardei
- 100g ricotta
- 1 gogosar
- cateva felii de trufa neagra
- sare
- piper
For this recipe I needed:
- mini peppers
- 100g ricotta
- 1 red sweet pepper
- few slices of black truffle
- salt 
- pepper
 Am spalat ardeii si i-am copt intr-o tigaie pana cand pielita s-a putut indeparta usor. Apoi am decupat un capac pentru a indeparta semintele din interior. Partea decupata am pastrat-o pentru a monta ardeiul dupa umplerea cu branza.
Pana am preparat crema de branza am tinut ardeii intr-un amestec de 100 ml de apa, 1 lingura de ulei, 1 lingura de otet si sare.
Am copt si gogosarul si l-am curatat de coaja dupa care am folosit pulpa pentru crema de branza. Intr-un vas am pus branza si pulpa gogosarului si le-am mixat cu blenderul. Apoi am adaugat sare si piper. Am umplut mini ardeii si am pus cate o felie de trufa pe fiecare. Pot fi serviti ca atare sau ca parte a unui aperitiv ce cuprinde mai multe feluri.
I washed the peppers and I grilled them on a pan until their peel  was easy to be taken away. After that I cut out near the stem in order to take out the seeds. I kept the part that was cut in because I wanted to use it after the peppers were filled with cheese.
I kept the mini peppers in a mix of 100 ml water, 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil, 1 tablespoon of vinegar and salt until I prepared the cheese filling. 
I also grilled the sweet pepper and I peeled it and I used the pulp for the cheese filling. In a bowl I put the cheese and sweet pepper's pulp and I mixed it with the blender. I added salt and pepper in the end. I filled each mini pepper with cheese and I put a slice of truffle on each one. They can be served as they are or as a part of an appetizer.

Merita sa incercati aceasta reteta, fiind o combinatie de gusturi simple dar de efect.
Pofta buna!
It's worth trying this recipe, because it's a combination of simple tastes but making a big impression.
Bon appetit!
