PLEŚNIAK

500 g flour

2 tsp vanilla sugar

4 egg yolks

250 g margarine

2 tbsp sour cream

2 tsp baking soda

3 tbsp cocoa

4 egg whites

1 cup sugar

fried apples with cinnamon or jam

Make a batter from flour, baking soda, vanilla sugar, yolks, margarine and cream (you can do it with your hands, but I prefer using mixer). Divide the batter into three pieces and add cocoa to one of them. Make balls from batter, flatten them and wrap with foil. Leave it in the fridge for an hour.

Beat egg whites with sugar. Grate the batter on the baking tray with graseproof paper (use a grater with big holes). First layer is from ‚white’ batter (one without cocoa),next from dark and on the dark layer put apples or jam, the next layer is whipped whites with sugar and on the top, again grated ‚white’ batter.

Bake it in temperature of 180 degrees for about an hour. After that you can put on it some chocolate topping.

WHOLE – WHEAT DATE BARS (www.marthastewart.com)


2 1/4 cups pitted dates (about 11 ounces)

3/4 cup apple cider

1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for parchment

1/4 cup wheat bran

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

2/3 cup packed dark-brown sugar

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

1 large egg

1/4 cup smooth unsweetened applesauce


Make filling: Bring dates and cider to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, simmer until dates are soft and almost all liquid has reduced, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Transfer to a food processor. Puree date mixture until smooth, set aside.

Make dough: Whisk together flours, bran, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl, set aside. Put sugar and zest in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed 30 seconds. Add butter, mix until combined, about 1 minute. Add egg, mix until fluffy. Mix in flour in 3 batches, alternating with 2 batches of applesauce. Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in plastic; shape into a rectangle. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll

out 1 piece of dough between two lightly floured sheets of parchment paper to a 9 1/2-by-13-inch rectangle. Dust with more flour, if needed. Remove top piece of parchment. Trim dough to a 9-by-11-inch rectangle. Transfer rectangle on parchment to a baking sheet.

Cut rectangle in half lengthwise. Spread a heaping cup filling down half of each length, leaving a 1/4-inch

border. Fold dough over; pinch to seal. Refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes. Repeat with remaining chilled dough and filling.

Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks 5 minutes. Cut into 1 1/2-inch bars. Transfer bars to racks using a spatula; let cool.

Nuts

NUTS

250 g flour

100 g butter

2 egg yolks

1 tsp baking soda

Make a dough from all ingredients using your hands or mixer. Wrap it in foil and put into to fridge for an hour and then put it out. Make the special frying pan very hot and spread an oil on it before frying the first portion. Tear off the hazel-nut big pieces from the dough and bake „shells”.

Baked, cold shells fill with your favourite filling and glue together two shells – just to make them look like walnut. I fill them with vanilla cream with grounded nuts and strong alcohol.

RURKI Z KREMEM

3 cup flour

200 g butter

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

250 ml sour cream

pinch of salt

1 tbs watter

1 egg white

granulated sugar

Make a fragile dough quickly  from flour, butter, egg, yolk, cream and salt. Wrap it in foil and put into the fridge for at least 2 hours. Spread a little bit of oil on moulds before first baking. Roll out cold batter until it’s 3-4 mm thick. Cut out 1,5 – 2 cm cm wide stripes. Roll the stripes on moulds and then spread on it egg white mixed with 1 tbs of water and sprinkle them with granulated sugar. Gently push the sugar with your hand to stick it better. Now put them on the baking tray and bake until it’s gold-yellow in 180 C degrees. I can’t tell you how long they have to be in oven because it depends on their size. When they are colder, remove the moulds. Cold tubes fill with any filling or cream. Be careful because they are really fragile.
