Prajitura cu cafea si crema cu ciocolata alba / Coffee and white chocolate cake

Coffee cake with white chocolate cream

Poate suna ciudat, dar eu ma bucur de perioada asta de carantina, pentru ca am timp sa gatesc (si sunt introvertita 😳 ). Si nu doar sa gatesc, ci sa si creez retete noi si combinatii de gusturi.

EN: Maybe it sounds weird, but I’m enjoying the quarantine because I have time to cook and bake (happy introvert 😳 ). And not only the basics, but also to create new recipes and new combinations of taste.

Si provocarea e cu atat mai mare pentru ca nu pot da fuga pana la magazin sa-mi cumpar ingrediente mai diverse. Trebuie sa ma descurc cu ce am prin bucatarie in momentul respectiv si sa fiu creativa.

EN: And baking is challenging these days because I can’t just go to the store and buy ingredients due to restrictions. I have to use whatever I have in the kitchen and get creative.

Am tot gatit zilele astea madlene, chec cu banane, tort cu mere (si da! am marit si timpul pentru workout ca sa compensez 😛 ), dar am simtit ca *le husband si-ar dori ceva cu crema, asa ca am facut o combinatie care sa ne multumeasca pe amandoi: cafea (eu) si ciocolata alba (el). Si rezultatul a fost unul delicios.

EN: During these past few days I’ve been baking madeleines, banana cake, upside-down apple cake (and yes! I did increase the workout time to compensate the amount of calories 😛 ), but I felt that *le husband would have wanted something with cream / icing / pudding, therefore I combined two of our favourite ingredients: coffee (for me) and white chocolate (for him). And the result was delicious.

  • Am topit untul pe baie de aburi si l-am lasat deoparte.
  • Am preparat cafeaua, adica am apasat pe un buton 😀 .
  • Intr-un bol, am mixat ouale impreuna cu zaharul pana si-au dublat volumul.
  • Am adaugat cateva picaturi de esenta de vanilie, cafeaua, praful de sare, faina, cacaoa si praful de copt cernute. Am mixat toate ingredientele pana cand compozitia a devenit omogena.
  • Am adaugat untul si ciocolata maruntita cu un cutit si am amestecat cu o lingura.
  • Am turnat compozitia intr-o forma circulara, tapetata cu hartie de copt, cu diametrul de 20cm si am bagat-o in cuptorul preincalzit la 170°C pentru 20 minute.
  • Cand a fost gata, am scos blatul din forma si l-am lasat la racit.

  • Am amestecat pana s-au incorporat toate ingredientele si am lasat la racit.
