What kind of recipe can you expect when I’m not here for such a long time, huh?
What kind of recipe can you expect when it’s so warm during these summer days, huh?
What kind of recipe can you expect when a person posting is so deeply and hopelessly addicted, huh?
Hello, Ice-Cream for you!
The main idea was to make something that would taste exactly the way shop ice-cream tastes… So that when you walk around the city and you see Kinder Bueno Ice-cream, you think “need to buy it, definitely not something I can make at home”.
Well… wroooong :)
Can be done and what is more, tastes amazing!
Just a small warning… it’s got thousands of calories, no joke ;)
Oh well :)
For children… these small and big ones :)
I was supposed to post it yesterday to welcome The First Day of Spring… but… yes, as usual “a but” :) Since Spring decided to come a bit late, I decided to follow its example :)
I spotted this flavour in one of our cafes and thought it would be nice to try to make it at home… Nothing new, right? :)
As a base I used checked, tasty, sure, tried and trusted Chocolate Ice-Cream from Moje Wypieki.
Here it is, especially for you – My Sweet Addiction :)
May Spring be with you!
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 ;)
I’ve just realised there is no Classic Tiramisu recipe on Sarenka… What the…
Need to change it, right now!
My Tiramisu is really soaked… And when I’m saying soaked, I really mean it :) That’s the way we like cakes and desserts here in my family :) The cake should be soft, wet and mouth-watering. And that’s how this Tiramisu is :)
I made the cream without adding whipped egg whites. That is why, it was a bit more dense in its consistency. If you want it to be even more creamy and delicate, just add the whipped whites… and that’s all :)
The pictures may look a bit chaotic. It’s because they were taken in a hurry… Tiramisu started disappearing faster than I expected :)
To me, a perfect choice for Father’s Day :)
The moment I read through the recipe, I knew this taste would be outstanding. I just didn’t realise this ice-cream would jump into my Top3!
So very coffee. So very whisky. Impossible to resist.
One of these recipes I would be coming back to in the future…
Once you’ve tried it, you’re lost ;)
If you want to search for the original recipe, it can be found on Raz a dobrze. Such a yummy blog!
Actually, I’ve got one question only – why is maple syrup so damn expensive??? Why, why, why? Ehh…
If it were cheaper, do believe me I would be making this ice-cream all the time!
What else can I say? I think you get what I mean…
And that’s the second version of Pączki :)
It turned out that when no one was looking at me while working in the kitchen, doughnuts got twice as big as the previous ones ;P Oh, what can I do that I like xxl baking ;) Let it be cookies, bars of chocolate or mentioned doughnuts… They have to be big! :)
This time I tried this recipe out. It’s a nice one, too.
Just do forgive me that this post is so twin to the yesterday’s one. The thing is, the procedures while making doughnuts are so alike that I decided to be a bit lazy posting this time :)
I’m a teacher so grading time :)
4+ for the dough
5+ for the taste (outstanding!)
So now it’s your choice ;)
Oh my, I was really in two minds whether to post this recipe or not…
This Brûlée is really really interesting. I mean, the recipe is, the taste is… just my final effect was not ;) It was not a complete failure but if you have a look at real Grand Master doing it, you’ll understand my own imperfections :)
Yet, as I said before, the recipe itself is interesting enough to share it with you. Who knows, maybe you’ll be more lucky while making it? I hope so :) If you decide to make this Brûlée, I’ll be more than glad to hear about your experiences and impressions :)
Another thing worth mentioning is that once again I realised how important and useful it is… not to know :) What do I mean? Well, I decided to make it, I did make it and only then did I start reading all comments, pieces of advice, voices of disappointment and declarations of failure. I even encountered an opinion that Crème Brûlée is one the most difficult and “moody” desserts ever! Gosh, you can imagine how lucky I was not to read it all before making the cream. A bit discouraging it may be, don’t you think? :)
My Brûlée is far away from ideal, true. But isn’t it about the taste, after all?
The whole trick about Crème Brûlée is… way of baking it, I suppose. Right temperature and appropriate time of baking. Actually, it may mean different things for different people and… their ovens :) In my case, I was baking it till I said to myself “yes, that’s the moment to take it out”. Really, it’s about observing.
When it comes to pictures… I know, I know, nothing amazing. It’s because of baking in the evenings mostly. I’ll try to make up for it one day :)
Alright, enough of this chit-chat.
Time to bake “the most difficult of all desserts” :)
Yes, if you check carefully, you can already find quite similar mini-tarts on Sarenka, here here :)
This time just a bit of a change when it comes to the cream.
I added advocaat… Well, I added it because it’s getting really cold here and liqueur can warm you up a bit ;) Aaand, thanks to the alcohol my mini-tarts are not that bland, tastewise :)
Why black currant jam? As usual, to break the sweetness. I’m not fond of really sweet sweets :)
PS. As you can see, the weather is not photo-friendly… But do believe me, I did my best. I hope my mini-tarts look at least a bit edible :)
Because they are!
December, be good to me :)
Oh my, oh my. My fingers just got so itchy to bake :)
Something with yeast, yes yes.
I got a bit jealous, too :) Girls from other blogs were making buns, rolls, bread, croissants… Gosh, and what about me? :)
Straight to the kitchen, quick kneading, quick crumble making… and finally this beautiful smell of a yeast cake all around… To tell you, it’s something that can’t be described… For me, it’s just the smell of cosiness, home and love.
