It was a matter of time… :)
Since I saw this roll on Lady Laura’s blog, I knew I would make it myself. There was no other option :)
Obviously, like with all new cakes that I decide to make, this time I had my worries too – it was my first roll ever! That is why, I think you should have seen me rolling the sponge… or I should rather say, trying to roll the sponge ;P Thanks God, there are more decisive people at home ;P
When it comes to the cake itself – flawless. The sponge is the same I used in making Drunkard and Wuzetka. No problems with rolling it. At all. And the cream… Mhmm… Milky pleasure at its best :))
All in all, to-be-repeated :)
Laura – ¡muchas gracias ;D
Evening cravings… We know them so well ;)
Crumble should do the trick – just cover the apples with it and enjoy your evening with your bellies full.
Best served straight from the oven… Though it may result in soft tongue burnts ;P
That is why, vanilla ice-cream served along should help a lot ;D
… and next time I’ll go for another fruit than apples ;P
The name and the recipe stolen from Moje Wypieki.
In my humble opinion, this cake has got everything that a good cake needs to have – it’s heavy, wet, extremely chocolatey with delicious cream.
Just to underline at the very beginning, if you’re a fan of fluffy sponge cakes, this recipe is not for you… And if it is not for you, you may feel like jumping to wuzetka recipe :)
If you are, however, a lover of more brownie-like cakes, you’ll fall for this one, for sure! The exceptional mix of the flavours is what makes the cake sooo good – on the one hand, chocolate everywhere… on the other hand, coconut surprise :)
And though you may find it difficult to cut the cake into two pieces (kind of troublesome, at least for me ;P), it’s really worth making it :)
Difficult not to smile seeing them :))
Cutie, cutie, cutie they are :)
I found them on Mała Cukierenka, decided to change white sugar to muscovado to make them look darker and… yummy yummy yumm :)
They’re really easy to be made and definitely non-time consuming.
Especially recommended for the little ones :)
Fantastic! Simply fan-ta-stic!
Oh, you can’t even imagine how regretful I am that I didn’t check them out earlier. And Mum kept repeating “let’s make them, let’s, let’s” and she was sooo right – they’re just awesome!
What is the best about them is the dough, really. Working with is a pure pleasure – you can roll it and roll it and… nothing happens to it – the dough is as easy-going as it was in the beginning :) No sticking, no tearing. Perfect!
When it comes to the filling, the easiest choice would be whipped cream, of course. It’s just… You may really wish to try this advocaat cream instead :) It’s unbelievably irresistible!
The recipe for the horns is taken from here and for the cream from here.
Are you cold? :)
So am I. Even though they say there is no winter here yet, I’m still lacking some warmth ;P
Thus… for the cold-handed as well as for those who suffer from constant ice-cold feet symptom – A real warm-up :)
Just put it in your tea, cover yourself with a blanket, take a good book in your hands and… the world is yours :)
