(Going) Nut Granola :)

I haven’t made any granola for a very very very long time.
Time to catch up with some :)

This one I found on My Man’s Kitchen. I decided to make if from half of the portion given. Just to try it out :)
By the way, I realised that granola drying is really individual matter – sometimes it can take up to 40 minutes and sometimes, like in this case, only 20! Or to be honest… even shorter :)

Nut Granola is something I’ll be still experimenting with. As for now, that’s the recipe :)

Black Currant Cake

POLISH VERSION

And that is the second cake I mentioned last time :)
Sweet but sour, sour but sweet :)
That’s the combination I like a lot :)

I decided to make this cake from half of the portion given in the original recipe. And still, it is quite big!
Now I’m thinking… who would eat the whole portion of it?! Wait… No no, on second thoughts, it wouldn’t be a problem at all ;P

The cake itself is rather wet and not very fluffly, that is why it doesn’t need any soaking, in my humble opinion :) Two kinds of cream make it as light as a feather :) Additionally, this pleasant acidity from black currant jam… Mhmm… Delicious :)

Here you can find the proportions of the ingredients for a really big cake :)
Mine was halved :)

Chocolate cake with Lemon Mousse

My camera is back! I missed it! So much!
Last weekend I managed to make two delicious cakes and and and… a close shave and I wouldn’t have even one picture of them! They started disappearing so quickly :)
But here they are… I mean, here it is – one as for now :)
It’s been a long break, which I didn’t like at all but now it’s high time I caught up with some baking :)

Both cakes I made are sweet (of course!) but this time I wanted to bake something that would break this sweetness :)

Ladies and Gentlemen, lemon mousse. One of the yummiest things I’ve eaten :)
If you are fond of lemon sweets, this one will win your heart within seconds :)

The thing is, eating mousse is way easier than making it ;P
It should be clearly stated, this mousse can be problematic if it wants ;)
I think next time the consistency will be smoother and… even better :)

Sooo… this cake is a mouuse-t :D

(Like) Truffle Chocolates Ice-Cream

POLISH VERSION

If I had known that making home-made ice-cream was so easy…
I think this year my family will get such overload of ice-cream that sooner or later they’ll start hating it ;P

In the original recipe you can find them under a different name. I decided to change it because the moment I tasted this ice-cream, it reminded me of this little truffle chocolates… just here you’ve got a cooling version of them ;)

It is so easy to be made… and a good solution if you don’t know what to do with too many bananas at home ;P
Ah, and a nice way to use your home-made baileys :)

Light Meringue Cake

POLISH VERSION

I just love the recipes from Moje Wypieki :)
I think I’ve never been disappointed with any of them!
I remember when Dorota, the owner of Moje Wypieki, announced she would have her own cooking book published. I knew I had to have it on my shelf, I just knew it. Someone may say that the recipes are basically the same as those that can be found online but… a book is a book :) You can hold it in your hands, feel how heavy it is, smell it (!) while turning the pages… Dirtying it while baking is only a matter of time, I’m sure of it… That’s the beauty of a book :)

This Meringue Cake is something I found in the mentioned book.
I’m calling it a meringue cake but the truth is, it has nothing to do with meringue! I mean, it’s made like one but the taste does not resemble meringue at all!
Mum said it tasted like poppy cake… For my aunt it was more like a fruitcake… Hmmm, maybe chocolate cake too? :)
I had already had a plan what to do with six yolks being left (this this you can make!).
Three things about this cake – light as a feather, delicious as… everything here :P and so easy to be done :)
