Recipe of apricot cake it is one of the best I have prepared so far. The cake is fluffy, with a perfect texture, it is not at all inaccurate but soft and delicious. I've made a lot of cakes so far. One of my favorites is chocolate cake and mint. I also like the classic one with cocoa or the one with cherries. But I had some cream cheese left in the fridge from the cheesecake recipe and I didn't know what to do with it. I usually buy more than I need and I always have more.

I decided to use it for another dessert and as I had quite a few apricots in the fruit bowl, an apricot cake seemed excellent to me. This is especially because it is a seasonal dessert that you can prepare quickly and easily with any fruit you have at home. I also made it with strawberries and it turned out just as well. It can also be made with cherries or cherries, with peaches or nectarines. And the berries go very well. You can use a combination of blackberries, blueberries, currants to which you can add raspberries.

Butter is very important for this cake. Use good, greasy butter with 80% fat. It must be at room temperature and of good quality. The one with 65% fat is not good for cakes. It has a high water content and can negatively change the texture of the cake. The cream cheese must be from the one we use at cheesecake. It is a classic cream cheese, the one we find in dairy districts and which can also be used in sandwiches. If necessary, you can also use mascarpone, although it is not cream cheese.

I put this cake in a large guguluf tray, but you can also use two cake trays or a large cake tray. Bake the cake over medium heat for about an hour. There is a lot of composition and we have to make sure it is well baked. Once it's ready, you can glaze the cake with chocolate or apricot jam or you can simply powder it with sugar. It is also excellent with the recipe cherry cake, are the perfect desserts for summer.

Avocado cream with cheese and garlic & # 8211 appetizer cream

Avocado cream with cheese and garlic & # 8211 appetizer cream. Avocado spread with cream cheese recipe. An alternative to the classic guacamole. Fine and creamy avocado paste with garlic, more or less spicy. Avocado paste for spreading on bread or to eat with boiled or fried potatoes.

Avocado is a very healthy and tasty fruit that should be eaten more often than we do. All its properties are highlighted in the raw state so there is no point in cooking it. This avocado cream with cheese is prepared in a few minutes and is extremely tasty.

Many people use avocados just for guacamole recipe (see here). But it can be included in other combinations. I am always looking for homemade alternatives for cold snacks during the day. I think we are already used to the fact that we make many spreads of meat, ham, mushrooms or various kinds of cream cheese (see here).

I did the same now, when I was looking for an alternative to the classic & # 8222körözött & # 8221 & # 8211 ie cow's cream cheese with cumin, paprika and onion or garlic & # 8211 see the recipe here.

I made a tasty and healthy breakfast. It is a delicious dietary recipe. It also fit perfectly with the sandwich in the junior's school package. Over this avocado cream with cheese you can also put lettuce leaves, thin slices of ham, etc.

From the quantities below it results approx. 350 g of avocado cheese paste.


Rice pudding with sweet cheese and fruit

I try to get started in recipes for sweets / desserts. I have great craftsmen behind me, but also sources of inspiration & # 8211 wife (critical eye) and recipes inherited from my mother and mother-in-law. Some aunts, through their recipes, carried word for word, verified live, being a chef, several years ago, they also have their role in my initiation.

I took it easy and I don't suddenly throw myself into the great confectionery sophistication. Specifically, I remembered the rice pudding my father-in-law made, first boiling the rice in water and then mixing the almost boiled rice into the sweet, boiled milk. Not being a friend of dairy products, in general (cheese, butter, etc. were not on his menu), my father-in-law drank sweet milk quite often and also made rice with milk.

Ingredients needed in the recipe: sweet milk, sweet cheese, fresh eggs (chicken), rice (from pilaf), dried fruit (raisins, dates, figs, cranberries, plums, apricots, etc.) and / or fresh / frozen / compote ( berries, strawberries, blackberries, blackberries, cherries / cherries & # 8211 without seeds, plums / apricots / peaches & # 8211 also without seeds and slices, etc.), smells / essences (according to everyone's taste and preference), peel lemon and / or orange peel, ground cinnamon, sugar / honey / natural fruit syrup.

No one should be scared! The ingredients mentioned above (fruits) should not be put all at once, every time the recipe is prepared, but according to the desire and & # 8220 endowment & # 8221 from your own pantry.

The rice (from the one for pilaf, with round grain, which agglomerates when boiling) is boiled in cold water (one cup of rice / 2 cups of water).

It can be useful! For boiling rice, use a special pot for boiling milk (with double walls), after boiling the sweet milk and removing it from the pot in a saucepan. Whoever has 2 pots for boiling milk has, for the moment, got rid of washing the pot for boiling milk.

The rice can be boiled in water using an enameled pot.

When the rice is almost boiled and the water has dried, add the hot milk (enough to cover the almost boiled rice) and continue boiling, for a few minutes, in the milk.

Add sugar / honey / syrup to the cooked rice, to taste. Grate lemon peel and / or orange peel. Add ground cinnamon and your favorite essence (vanilla, cinnamon, rum, pistachio, almonds, oranges, lemon).

Sweet, cow's cheese, mixed with egg yolks, raisins, dates (sliced) and cranberries.

For a special taste of the preparation, the dried fruits are kept for 1-2 hours in rum / cognac, to rehydrate.

To be considered! If there are children at the table, you can skip the rehydration in alcohol and you can do a partial rehydration in syrup (which you have, although in maple syrup is something special).

Beat the egg whites with a whisk or mixer until well combined.

Boiled, fragrant rice is mixed with egg yolks and fruits and beaten egg whites. The mixture is placed in a heat-resistant vessel. On top should be a layer of beaten egg white.

The heat-resistant dish is placed in the hot oven of the stove, at the right heat.

To look through the oven door of the stove! When the egg white above has been colored in copper, remove the dish from the oven, using thick kitchen gloves.

There is no mistake! The heat-resistant dish can be greased with a little butter and wallpaper with semolina / rice flour before adding the mixture of rice, eggs, fruit, beaten egg whites. In the mixture, but also in the beaten egg whites, you can put a little semolina / rice flour.

Leave the bowl to rest for 10-15 minutes. But there is a condition for those who keep wandering around the kitchen, to see and smell the stage of the preparation, to have the necessary patience.

Wallpapering the heat-resistant dish with semolina / rice flour, has the role of hardening the preparation, making it at the same time easy to cut into slices for serving.

In the picture below, it will be noticed that the patience was not taken into account and the pudding was left a little, when it was put on the plate, to be served to the naughty ones.

The pudding is & # 8220dichiseste & # 8221, at the request of the diners, with maple syrup / cinnamon / jam.

The advantage of this recipe is that it is easy to prepare, fast and there are a lot of possible options. The inventiveness of every housewife is welcome. Do not forget, however, the preferences of diners and especially the little ones.

Good appetite, you gourmet brothers and you gourmet brothers everywhere, wherever you are in the world! I have said it on other occasions, maybe under a different form & # 8211 only those who do not try, only those who do not hesitate, manage to get their hands on and try any recipe, just crave what they see in others on the table.
