Winter dream cake with cocoa, sour cherries and almonds

I have been dreaming of this winter dream cake with cocoa, cherries and almonds for a very long time and I keep telling myself that I am starting it. It is a rather old dessert that was made at events in the Banat area and which was later added to their offer by a famous confectionery. Indeed, these cakes are quite high in sugar, but they are so good, consistent and filling that you don't necessarily need a second slice.

I received the recipe from my friend Mariana, who is a real confectionery specialist, and who has been making cakes for a long time, but with slight modifications I adapted it to my taste and style.

Fine drum leaves with cocoa, almonds and cherries, steamed egg cream with white chocolate is the perfect embodiment of a sweet and sour dessert, very good-looking that makes you think of the old cakes.

Stay together for the list of ingredients, but also the super simple way of preparation, and the result will be truly spectacular, both in terms of smell and taste.

If you somehow prefer everything to be white, from countertop to cream, you can try the Winter Dream cake with vanilla leaves and white chocolate cream, the step-by-step details of the recipe here or click on the photo.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they leave waves on the surface of the bowl.

With the help of a silicone spatula, we also incorporate the flour mixed with cocoa and sifted with light movements from the bottom up.

Divide the composition into 2 equal parts and spread them on two baking sheets the size of the tray, mine are 41/32 cm, sprinkle the well drained cherries and almond flakes and bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned.

How to prepare the cream:

We put the eggs with the sugar, the salt powder in a bowl on a bain marie and mix with a whisk or a food processor until they reach a temperature of 65 degrees Celsius, and if you don't have a thermometer until you take it with a spoon and finger it , and the cream does not stick back.


Add the broken chocolate pieces and leave for 3-4 minutes, then mix it until it is incorporated and homogenous. Let cool completely.

and add a little of the cream mixing with a spatula, until we finish the cream and get a shiny and aerated cream. If you mix too much, it is possible that the cream will cut, but if it does, put it back on the bain marie and mix gently until it recovers. Don't let it soften too much.

We cut both countertops in half wide, so we get 4 sheets. Divide the cream into 4 equal parts.

We put a countertop, some cream and so on until it ends with cream.

Cut the cake thus obtained once in half and overlap each other so as to obtain a rectangular cake. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, pomegranate berries or whatever you have on hand and let that please.

The chia seeds are placed in a thick sieve and rinsed in several cold waters until the water becomes crystalline. Then put them in a bowl, pour water over them, to be covered. Leave it hydrated from evening to morning, or for 5-6 hours. During this time, chia seeds absorb all the water and acquire the texture of jelly or pudding.

Separately, bananas and raspberries are passed through a blender and mixed with hydrated chia seeds. Add honey to taste and a little cinnamon for flavor. Chia pudding is decorated with grated bitter chocolate, pomegranate, blueberry and raspberry seeds and is served as breakfast or dessert. It is delicious, easy to prepare and, above all, healthy!

Cocoa pudding & # 8211 the simplest and fastest dessert

When I feel like something sweet and I don't feel like spending too much time in the kitchen, I quickly make a cocoa cream. A dessert that I learned from my mother-in-law and that is super easy to make and delicious. I also prepare it when I have friends who come to visit and to give it a more fancy note I decorate the dessert with raspberries or whatever fruit I have in the freezer / refrigerator, with nuts / hazelnuts or pieces of chocolate.

As ingredients you need:

6 tablespoons sugar (I use raw sugar)

In a cauldron, mix the flour with the cocoa (it is ideal to sift them before they become lumpy) and then add the sugar. Pour a little milk and mix with a whisk until smooth. I put the pot on the fire and gradually add the milk, stirring constantly until it thickens (it takes a few minutes). I pour the hot composition into the containers because it catches a pojghiţă on the surface very quickly. Personally, I really like that pojghiţa that is darker in color and that looks beautiful in the bowl. If you don't like it, you can put food foil directly on the surface of the cream and leave it to cool.

It's a dessert ready in 5 minutes that you can enjoy for breakfast when you want to pamper yourself.
