I suggest the option of cookies when you do not want to mess with the oven. Baking in the oven is very good, but it is not always possible. For example, in a small dacha you do not have an oven, but there is a stove. It is not difficult to prepare such a simple cookie, even a young hostess can cope with the work. Cookies are prepared very easily and quickly, and it turns out very tasty.
If you, like me, have already eaten fresh berries, tried all desserts and even salads, try strawberry soup! According to this recipe, it turns out very refreshing (just perfect for the heat), not sickly sweet, with a bright combination of berries, aromatic herbs and sauce! The minimum number of products and the simplest preparation! What else do you need in hot summer!?!
Devonshire clotted cream is no longer cream, but not yet butter. Tender, creamy-sweet, and amazingly delicious. In Devonshire, farmers have been preparing them using ancient technology for many many years. The secret of production, as usual, is different for everyone and is not particularly disclosed. But here I met a recipe on the Internet how to cook melted cream at home, in the oven. In Devonshire, this clotted cream is a mandatory part of afternoon tea. They are served with skins. The scones are cut lengthwise, spread with strawberry jam, and put a spoonful of melted cream on top. It’s divinely delicious!
Why Devonshire? The name comes from the county of Devonshire, in the south-west of England. These places are famous for their beautiful landscapes, seaside resorts and traditional tea drinking. Tea is served here with skins, strawberry jam and melted thick cream. By the way, the British are divided into those who first spread jam on the scones, and then put cream on those who do exactly the opposite: first cream, then jam. And I found the recipe for these scones from the British culinary writer and TV presenter Mary Barry.
A very popular dessert “Balparmak” is part of the group of Turkish pastries, which are soaked in syrup. It turns out tender, juicy and sweet. The recipe was first described in the cookbook of the great Ottomans, which was published in 1844 and is stored in the Topkapi Palace.
“Pasteis de nata” (Pasteis de nata) cakes with custard. These cakes are called “Pate de Belem”, all other ” fakes “are simply called”Pate de nata”. Today I chose from all possible versions of the “fake” recipe with the “smallest” amount of sugar and I will use milk instead of cream. Careful, it’s sweet! But very tasty! The Portuguese have a sweet tooth!
Cake without flour! It’s the most tender I’ve ever met. Easy to prepare. The taste will surprise you!
This recipe is interesting, especially for children who are trying their hand at cooking. Only 3 ingredients go to the cake. The cake is prepared without the use of an oven. It tastes delicious! I think when my granddaughter grows up, we will prepare this recipe together again! Here she will be surprised that you can make a cake out of cookies!
I offer another quick-to-prepare dessert of bananas and white chocolate – in two versions – with strawberries and blueberries. It is radically different from the previous one: both in taste and appearance. It is not necessary to beat anything, everything is mixed with a spoon. It is ideal for summer, because cooking takes no more than 10 minutes, and the time for solidification is about 1 hour.
A simple and quick recipe for very chocolate, fragrant cupcakes for home tea drinking.
