  3. I recently found a good chocolate brownie recipe on Pinterest. It’s been a hit so far! The original recipe is to make brownie muffins but I prefer the recipe prepared in an square cake tin instead.

    Chocolate Brownies
    4 oz/113 g bittersweet or semisweet chocolate , coarsely chopped
    ½ cup (1 stick/113 g) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
    1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon (55 g/2 oz) all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup (35 g/1.2 oz) unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch-processed)
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 large eggs
    ¾ cup (150 g/5.3 oz) granulated sugar

    Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line 12 muffin cups with liners or a square cake tin. Set aside.
    To make the brownies: In a medium heatproof bowl, place chocolate and butter. Heat mixture in the microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until melted. Alternatively, you can set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
    In a small bowl sift flour, cocoa, and salt. Set aside.
    Using a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk eggs and sugar on high speed until thick and pale, about 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low and slowly add in chocolate mixture. Stop the mixer. Add flour mixture and fold, using a rubber spatula, just until combined. Do not overmix.
    Divide batter between liners, filling them about ¾ full. Bake for 13-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out with moist crumbs and not dry. Be careful not to overbake as this will make the brownies dry. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Allow muffins to cool completely on a wire rack.

  4. My favorite cake is this, its peculiarity is that with a single dough you have three different consistencies in the same cake.


    – Hot whole milk 500 ml
    – Sugar 150 g
    – Cold melted butter 125 g
    – Flour 00 115 g
    – Eggs at room temperature 4
    – Cold water 1 tbsp
    – Vanilla extract 1 tbsp
    – Lemon juice 1 tsp
    – Salt up to 1 pinch
    – Icing sugar to taste
    – Butter to taste

    To prepare the magic cake, start by melting the butter in a saucepan. Be careful not to darken it and once it is melted, pour it into a bowl and let it cool to room temperature. Then divide the egg whites from the yolks and pour the egg yolks at room temperature into a bowl, into which you will add the sugar.
    Now with the electric whisk, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar for at least 10 minutes, until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Still beating, add to the yolks with the sugar also a tablespoon of very cold water and a spoonful of vanilla extract. If you do not have electric whips, or if you prefer, you can perform the procedure with the planetary mixer or with hand whips. Add a pinch of salt and the melted butter that you have cooled down, then continue to beat for a few minutes. Sift the flour at a time into the mixture and mix it to absorb it completely; Meanwhile, heat the milk in a saucepan. Once it is hot, pour it into the mixture and let it incorporated for about 1 minute. It is essential that the mixture has no lumps, if this were the case, you can sift the mixture with a narrow mesh sieve, using the back of a spoon to remove lumps. At this point take the egg whites at room temperature and pour them into a clean bowl, start to whisk them with the perfectly clean electric whisk start to whisk adding the lemon juice (or white wine vinegar) when the egg whites have become light: give compound stability. You will have to climb in not too firm snow. With a whisk gently whisk the egg whites until stiff, so as not to remove them and mix until you get a rather liquid dough. Grease a square baking pan of 20×20 cm and 6 cm high and line both the bottom and the edges with parchment paper. The size of the pan is important to get the correct cake thickness.
    Then pour the mixture into the greased and lined pan and bake in a preheated static oven at 150 ° for about 80 minutes, until the surface of the magic cake is golden brown; remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely to room temperature, then cover it with a layer of film and let it compact in the fridge for at least 2 hours. When the cake has compacted, turn it out of the pan, removing the parchment paper and cut it into cubes . To make cutting easier, use a long, smooth blade with water or use a nylon thread. Place the cubes on a serving dish, sprinkle with icing sugar and your magic cake will be ready to be served and enjoyed!

    The magic cake can be kept in the closed refrigerator in an airtight container or well covered with film for 3 days. You can freeze the magic cake cooked in the pan in which you cooked it or cut it into cubes, which you will place in an aluminum pan, being careful to distance them well.

  6. Lollipops, Caramel on a stick.
    sugar-6 tbsp.;
    water – 2 tbsp.;
    vinegar 9% – 1 tbsp.;
    toothpicks or chopsticks;
    butter or vegetable oil to lubricate the mold.

    For the preparation of lollipops, we need to prepare the form and products. In a small saucepan pour sugar, add water and vinegar. Mix everything.
    Put the sugar mixture on medium heat. And now the most important thing: in the process of cooking caramel CAN not be STIRRED (!!!), otherwise it “candied” and will be like just a very wet sugar, and then this sugar will harden into a bulletproof stone. And candies will turn out rough and lumpy, and after all we need to achieve a smooth and transparent consistency of candies. So, let’s be patient and not touch . The sugar mixture will slowly begin to boil and the sugar will begin to dissolve. The mixture will become transparent. Stir the caramel is not necessary!
    Form of for lollipops lubricate vegetable or creamy oils. And now look and choose the color of our candy, if you want candy saturated color, just cook the caramel on the fire a little longer, you will see how it will begin to change color from light to copper. To prepare light candies 14 minutes.
    Carefully pour the caramel into the molds.
    After 1 minute insert the sticks.
    Leave the mold on for 10-15 minutes and then remove the lollipops.
    Here are such beautiful and delicious lollipops on sticks turned out for me. And you, too, please loved ones wonderful sweets, cooked at home.
    Bon appetit and bright moments to You!
