Deliciul vrajitoarei / Witch’s delight

A doua reteta pentru Halloween se adreseaza vrajitoarelor sau celor ce au aspiratii de vrajitori. Bine, macar de Harry Potter :))Este o reteta simpla, gustoasa si de mare efect. Daca va mai spun ca se face si rapid sigur va voi tenta.The second recipe for Halloween is addressed to witches or those who have aspirations of wizards. Well, even of Harry Potter :)) It’s a simple recipe, tasty and very nice. If I will tell you that is cooked fast I will surely tempt you.

Dar sa va spun ce-i place vrajitoarei atat de mult. Budinca de perle de tapioca si piure aromat de mere. Un mot de bezea sau frisca deghizeaza un desert banal intr-unul foarte ingenios si potrivit vremii mohorate de toamna.

Ingrediente:
– 200 g perle tapioca
-300 ml apa
-500 ml lapte
-4-5 linguri de zahar
-vanilie
-scortisoara
-cuisoare
-anason
-5-6 mere
Topping
-1 albus
-2 linguri de zahar
-colorant alimentar
sau
-150 ml frisca lichida
-2 linguri de zahar
But let me tell you what the witch likes so much. Pudding with tapioca pearls and  flavored apple puree. A topping of meringue or whipped cream will transform a common dessert into a very cleverly decorated one suitable for this weather and dreary autumn.
Ingredients:
– 200 g tapioca pearls
-300 ml water
-500 ml milk
-4 to 5 tablespoons sugar
-vanilla
-cinnamon
-cloves
-anis
-5 to 6 apples
Topping
-1 eggwhite
-2 tablespoons of sugar
-food coloring
or
-150 ml whipped cream
-2 tablespoons of sugar

Perlele de tapioca se pun la inmuiat in cei 300 ml de apa si se lasa cca 30 de minute.
Tapioca pearls will be put to rehydrate in 300 ml of water and left about 30 minutes.

Intre timp vom pregati piureul de mere.
Acestea se curata de coaja si cotor si se taie in cuburi. Se pun intr-o cratita impreuna cu scortisoara, cuisoare, anason, se adauga apa si se fierb pana cand se inmoaie. Odata fierte, merele se strecoara si se lasa la racit dupa care se mixeaza. Vom obtine un piure aromat si acrisor.
Meanwhile we’ll prepare the apple puree.
Apples will be peeled and the stub will be taken out and then cut into cubes. Place the cubes of apples in a saucepan with cinnamon, cloves, anise, add water and boil until they will get soft. Once cooked, strain the apples and leave them to cool off and then mix it. We’ll get a flavored and sour puree.

Tapioca se fierbe in laptele indulcit si aromat cu vanilie. Nu-i asa ca arata ca orezul cu lapte? Tapioca este insa mult mai fina decat orezul. Budinca se lasa sa se raceasca.
Tapioca will be boiled in the sweetened and vanilla flavored milk. It does look like rice with milk isn’t it? But tapioca is a lot smoother than rice. We will let the pudding to cool off.

Toppingul poate fi bezea facuta dintr-un albus, doua linguri de zahar si putin colorant sau 150 ml de frisca lichida, doua linguri de zahar si putin colorant (sau sirop, de ce nu?) sau nimic. Puteti picura putin sirop peste budinca pentru un efect dramatic de sange :))
Topping can be meringue made ​​of an egg white,  two tablespoons of sugar and some dye or 150 ml of whipped cream, two tablespoons of sugar and a some color (or syrup, why not?) or nothing. You can drizzle syrup over pudding  for a dramatic effect of blood :))

Happy Halloween! 😀

Prajiturele otravitoare sau cum sa distrezi copiii de Halloween/Poison muffins or how to entertain the kids for Halloween

Stiu ca multi dintre voi nu doriti sa tineti aceasta sarbatoare deoarece este importata si vi se pare prea comerciala. Singurul lucru care mie imi place la tot ce are legatura cu aceasta este faptul ca cei mici chiar se distreaza. Si asta e cel mai important.
Am pregatit doua retete si a fost chiar haios. Una din ele v-o prezint azi. Reteta e simpla insa ideea e de efect. Poate va inspirati daca inca nu v-ati planificat ce sa pregatiti.
I know many of you do not want to celebrate this event because it is imported and it seems too commercial for you. The only thing I like about it is that that children really have fun. And that’s the most important thing about it.
I prepared two recipes and it was really funny. One of them will be presented today. The recipe is simple but effective. Get inspired if you haven’t planned anything yet.

Iata de ce ingrediente aveti nevoie:
– 6 oua + 3 galbenusuri
– 10g praf de copt
-7 linguri de zahar
-10 linguri faina
-200 g unt
-150 ml lapte
-vanilie
-coaja de lamaie
-migdale intregi (simple sau caramelizate)
Bezea
-3 albusuri
-4 linguri de zahar
-colorant alimentar verde(sau ceai verde pudra, menta uscata pudra)-optional
What ingredients you’ll need:
– 6 eggs + 3 egg yolks
– 10g baking powder
-7 tablespoons of sugar
-10 tablespoons flour
-200 g butter
-150 ml milk
-vanilla
-lemon-peel
-whole almonds (simple or caramelized)
Meringue
-3 eggwhites
-4 tablespoons sugar
-green food coloring (or green tea powder, dry mint powder)-optional

Punem cele sase oua intregi si cele trei galbenusuri intr-un bol. Adaugam zaharul, vanilia, praful de copt si coaja de lamaie si mixam.
Untul se topeste si se amesteca cu laptele caldut (nu trebuie sa fie fierbinte). Apoi se adauga in bol si se mixeaza pana la omogenizare. In final se adauga faina si se mixeaza la viteza mica pentru a o incorpora complet in amestecul preparat anterior.
We put the six whole eggs and three yolks in a bowl. Add sugar, vanilla, baking powder and lemon zest and mix.
Melt the butter and mix with warm milk (should not be hot). Then add in the bowl and mix until they will homogenize. Finally add the flour and mix at low speed to incorporate it fully into previously prepared mixture.

Preincalzim cuptorul si intre timp pregatim tava. Asezam hartiutele si punem in fiecare cate o lingura de compozitie de muffins si cate o migdala. Apoi mai adaugam cate doua linguri astfel incat forma sa fie 2/3 plina. Prajiturica va creste si are nevoie de spatiu.
Tava se pune in cuptor. Se lasa cam 15 minute la foc mediu. Daca nu stiti cand sunt coapte puteti incerca cu o scobitoare. Odata coapte, muffins se lasa la racit. Intre timp preparam bezeaua.
Meanwhile preheat the oven and prepare the tray. The muffin papers will be arranged and we’ll put one tablespoon of composition and one almond in each one. Then add two tablespoons in each of them so as to be 2/3 full. The muffin will increase so it needs space.
Put the tray in the oven. Allow about 15 minutes or over at medium heat in the oven. If you do not know when they are baked you can try them with a toothpick. Once baked, let them cool off. Meanwhile prepare meringue.

Cele trei albusuri separate mai devreme se mixeaza la viteza mare timp de 3-4 minute. Apoi adaugam zaharul si mixam pana obtinem o spuma ferma, care nu se desprinde de paletele mixerului.
Apoi, daca doriti, puteti colora bezeaua (colorant, pudra de ceai verde sau de menta uscata). Fiecare muffin se orneaza cu bezea. Aceasta se poate carameliza cu un pistol pentru flambat. Toate acestea sunt optionale. Puteti renunta la oricare dintre ele. Ceea ce este insa intr-adevar de efect este decorarea cu motive tematice din hartie. Ingenios, nu? Eu le-am primit cadou insa este o idee minunata pentru a inveseli un desert destul de banal.
The egg whites separated earlier will be mixed at high speed for 3-4 minutes. Then add sugar and mix until we’ll get a firm foam that does not come off the mixer blades.
Then, if you want, you can color the meringue (food color, green tea powder or dried mint). Each muffin is decorated with meringue. This can be caramelized with a dessert torch. All are optional. You can give up to any of them. But what is really effective is the decoration-thematic motifs decorating papers. Ingenious, isn’t it? I got them as a gift but it is a great idea to cheer up fairly common dessert.

Deci, trick or treat? 🙂
So, trick or treat? 🙂
