Charlotte with Melon "Seasonal" Recipe
Who of you has read Alice in Wonderland, he will surely remember the funny Duchess who was removed from morality. One of them read: "Every vegetable has its own time!"It seems logical, but we somehow neglected this and bought a melon in November. Naturally, it was absolutely unsweetened. We decided not to waste the good in vain, and we prepared a very simple, but delicious pie-charlotte on sponge dough. For tea-the very thing!
Instructions
  1. Prepare all the necessary ingredients. I have a shape with a diameter of 22 cm. Turn on the oven at 180C, let it heat up.

  7. Squeeze out the lemon juice. Simmer over medium heat. First, the melon will give juice, you need to wait until it boils, there will be a lot of it, it will be liquid, but gradually it will begin to thicken.

  8. Wait until the juice turns into syrup. The pieces no longer float in it, but as if stewed.

  9. Cover the bottom of the mold with parchment. It's very simple - cut a piece of the desired length, press it against the sides of the mold, and then cut off the excess.

  10. Add salt and sugar to the eggs. I saw a simple recipe for a classic biscuit from some master on the Internet - one egg of 30 grams. flour and 30 gr. sugar. Now I use it, and everything works out. Beat with a mixer, gradually increasing the speed.

  11. You need to mix them until the eggs look like whipped cream. The whipping time depends on the power of the mixer, at least 5 minutes.

  12. In two steps, sift the flour to the eggs. Distribute it over the entire area of the foam, otherwise it will sink to the bottom under its weight and it will be very difficult to mix it.

  13. Mix with a silicone spatula from the bottom up with folding movements, like turning a pancake, only very carefully!

  16. Bake in a preheated oven until completely dry. I'll have everything in 35 minutes. All this time I didn't open the oven, I watched through the glass. Before taking out the pie, close the window. The biscuit turns out to be perfectly homogeneous.
