Nut and Honey Cake

POLISH VERSION

Found at Sosna’s blog some time ago. Delighted with the pictures and… sooo curious of the taste :) Because you know, sooo much honey for one cake? That’s gingerbread or… what? I checked on the recipe and noticed nuts too, which only strengthened my willingness to make this cake ;) Curiosity killed the cat, as they say… Well, this time I decided to take a risk ;D

About the cake, if you’re not fond of honey, no worries, the cake tastes more of nuts than honey itself. If you don’t like nuts, though, well… you’ll like them after eating this cake ;D I liked it the most of all family members. Rising beautifully, with a fluffy structure and a bit modified glaze, this can be one of your favourite autumn cakes :)

Mini-Cocoa Tarts with Chocolate Cream

POLISH VERSION

… something my dad just adores :)
There is no other way – if something is double chocolate with cocoa, it has to be good :)
Well, difficult not to agree since these mini-tarts are simply delicious. The cocoa pie crust melts in the mouth (tested!), chocolate cream is far away from being too sweet, which I think is a huge advantage, and… Ha! There is some “and”. I decided to add some extra just to hmmm… enrich the taste :) And believe me, that was a good decision :)
Chokeberry jam was my choice but you can experiment with plums or black currant if you want to. Just to break the sweetness :)

Another plan is to post a separate recipe for the cocoa tarts but… first things first :)
As for now, try to indulge yourselves in these yummy minis :)

I was thinking for quite some time how to name them because… what I made was probably far away from the original palmeras ;P
Look more like hearts, don’t they? :)

I first saw them on Lady Laura’s blog whom I got to know thanks to my little blogging :) Dear Lady, if you happen to be reading it right now, warm hugs for you and big thank you for your support :) And do believe me, one day I’ll make real palmeras! Scout’s honour :)

As for now, my PseudoPalmeras. Cinnamonish, carelessly rolled and a bit overbaked ;) So what? They’re still delicious! :)
Check them out.
One of the best baking last minutes :)
