Tort

TORT, torturi, s. n. Prăjitură (de obicei de formă cilindrică) făcută din mai multe straturi de aluat, având între ele straturi de cremă, de dulceață etc., acoperită cu o glazură sau cremă ornamentală etc. (sursa: dex).

Din pacate nu stiu nici o sursa unde pot sa gasesc o felie de tort care sa respecte definitia de mai sus. Majoritatea “torturilor” din cofetarii consta intr-o matrita de plastic in care s-a turnat o crema groasa si sunt acoperite cu un strat de alta culoare. Asa ca am profitat de noul an ca un motiv perfect pentru un tort. Rezultatul, chiar daca nu foarte spectaculos vizual respecta definitia de mai sus si in plus a fost si foarte bun.

Poppy seed biscuits

I ended up with this recipe after searching for a nice holiday gift for my friends and the result was well received ;) Actually I did some tests and I migrated from cinnamon rolls to cinnamon, raisins rolls and finally to poppy seeds rolls cookies.

Pacatoasele negrese

Aceasta este o reteta de post pentru niste prajituri pe cat de gustoase pe atat de simplu de facut. Si totusi parca rezultatul e prea bun, aproape pacatos de bun. Am folosit o tava de 20 pe 30 cm asa ca am dublat cantitatile din reteta care mi-a servit de inspiratie (thank you). Seamana foarte mult cu negresele de cand eram mic.

Chapati

Yesterday I was cooking lentils (dal) curry which are one of my favorite and comfort dishes and when it was almost ready I realized I was really craving for some simple bread instead of rice so here was this very simple recipe which I realized is very similar to an indian bread (chapati).

This is a tasty Austrian dessert/main dish recipe. It’s mainly a form of dumpling filled with jam, boiled then served with vanilla sauce (check the romanian recipe here).

Apples and nuts cake

My neighbor which I occasionally help with PC problems seeing me in the street Friday gave me a bunch of apples saying these are “bio”-apples from his house in the mountains. I should take some since he has just picked up his apple tree and has too many apples and no idea what to do with them.

Starting with the apples and the sour cherry (or bilberries) cake recipe this was the result:

dumplings?

Totul a pornit de la germknoedel si ideea de a folosi aluatul si pentru altceva. Asa ca rezultatul a iesit ceva fara nume care am aflat ca intra in categoria dumpling si exista sub diferite nume si forme in toate bucatariile (momo, jiaozi, nume in romana?, etc.).
