POLISH VERSION

As I mentioned yesterday, two cheesecakes made, two recipes posted :)

Once again it turned out that we eat with our eyes first. I think I wouldn’t have decided to make this cake but for some amazing pictures I came across one day :) Only later did it turn out that the taste is as amazing as the pictures! But all in all, pictures were first, weren’t they? :)
And where did I find these pictures? Oh, I found them on Małgosia’s blog called Smaki Alzacji. I need to admit that some other recipes had already caught my eye… so in the nearest future I hope to check them out too :)

And well, I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t make something with Drunk Prune in the title of the recipe :) I just love this combination. whether we’re talking about cakes, ice-cream, desserts or any anything :)
Here I wouldn’t say that prunes dominate the taste of the cheesecake but they can be really felt both in the taste as well as in the consistency :)
Rum not so much… What a pity, right? ;P
Anyway, higly recommended for Drunk Prunes fans!

And one more thing, I changed the proportions a bit as well as the temperature of baking… But it’s more connected with my own preferences of baking. That’s all :)

Now!
To the kitchen! :)

RedCurrant Tart

Loads of redcurrant!
Redcurrant jam – done (not sure why not posted ;))
Redcurrant Ice-Cream – done.
Sooo… time for the tart. Second attempt :)

I honestly need to admit that working with this dough was a bit more difficult than with the previous one. Especially when it came to dough rolling. Well, finger pressing method did the trick so nothing to worry about ;)

The tart itself is something I adore :)
Sour, aah :)
Refreshing, aah :)
You taste it and suddenly, somewhere at the end of your tongue you feel the taste of coconut… Niiice :)

Best served – still warm :)
If you like apple pie straight from the oven, this tart will win your hearts :) Ooopsie, stomachs ;)

Dates & Prunes Tart

POLISH VERSION

I don’t believe in coincidence… But making this tart was coincidence ;)
Of course, the final effect was supposed to be completely different… Luckily, it ended up in a yummy way :) The taste of this tart is really untypical…
Yet, I need to admit I’m posting this recipe mostly because of this delicious tart… The topping is very tasty too, yes, but the bottom… oh my :) I’m not even sure if I should be saying it’s a tart since it’s something in between a tart and puff pastry. And do believe me, I would have never thought I could make puff pastry myself ;P

Next time, I’ll be trying this tart recipe but with a different topping… Well, I think no matter what you use, it can’t be a failure ;)
Oh, and definitely I’ll work on the shape of the tart… as for now it looks… not the way I’d like it to look like ;)

Black Forest Cake

POLISH VERSION

And that’s the other birthday cake I was telling you about.
Cooompletely different from Royal. Completely.
Last time I mentioned that Royal was more in a mannish style, remember? Well, Black Forest Cake is like a very elegant woman :) Light, refreshing and so representative :)
On Moje Wypieki you’ll find the original recipe. Here I’m presenting Black Forest Cake on a traditional sponge (the one with chocolate didn’t convince me :)) I decided to change the cream a bit too. Whipping cream was not enough since the cake had to travel from one place to another. That is why, I added a bit of mascarpone to the mass to make it thicker :)
Oh, and do not be too economical when it comes to using the soaking. You can add more than it’s suggested in the recipe ;)
Although my decorative skills leave a lot to be desired, Black Forest still looks elegant and… a bit dignified ;)
If you’re worried that men won’t like it much, drop this thinking. My dad loves it!

Five Health Protectors Juice

My wish is to say goodbye to March in a very healthy way, that is why this post and the next one will offer pure health found in the book I’d mentioned before :)
This juice is a bit thicker than the previous one. I think it can be compared to the consistency of a nectar.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have a fresh pineapple handy so I was forced to use the canned one. It’s possible the juice will be even more delicious if you decide to use fresh fruit only :)
