PREP: 35 mins

YIELD: one 8″ round cake

Ingredients

Chocolate Crepe Batter

1 3/4 cups (210g) All-Purpose Flour

1 1/2 cups (340g) milk, at room temperature

8 tablespoons (113g) unsalted butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 large eggs, at room temperature

1/4 cup (21g) unsweetened cocoa, Dutch-process or natural

Pastry Cream Filling

2 cups (510g) homemade Pastry Cream

3/4 cup (234g) chocolate hazelnut spread, such as Nutella

Instructions

For the crepes

1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and cocoa. If the cocoa has any lumps be sure to break them up or sift them out. Whisk in the eggs, milk and butter and continue to whisk until the mixture is smooth. Pour the batter through a strainer into a clean bowl, cover and set aside for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat your crepe pan according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Cook one or two crepes to test and adjust the dough with milk if it’s too thick. Cook the rest of the crepe, you’ll need about 18 to 20 for the cake.

3. Cool the crepes while you prepare the homemade Pastry Cream. You will need about 2 cups of cooled pastry cream.

To make hazelnut pastry cream: Warm the chocolate hazelnut cream in the microwave for 20 seconds or until it’s soft and almost pourable. Whip the warm mixture into the pastry cream and keep whisking until no lumps are left.

To αѕѕemble the cake:

Stack 3 crepes on a serving plate and spread with 2 tablespoons of hazelnut pastry cream. Continue to layer a single crepe and 2 tablespoons of filling until you are nearly out of crepes. For stability, occasionally layer two or three crepes instead of one single crepe.

End with a layer of 3 crepes. Wrap the cake well in plastic wrap, using a little pressure to keep the cake pressed down. Chill for at least 60 minutes, or up to overnight. Slice in wedges to serve.

Place 3 crepes on a plate and spread 2 tablespoons of hazelnut cake. Continue to layer a single crepe and 2 spoons of filling until you are almost finished.

Wrap the cake in plastic wrap, using a little pressure to keep the cake pressed down.

Refrigerate for at least 60 minutes or maximum overnight.

Delicious Crispy Tandoori Chicken

The best homemade oven-baked tandoori chicken recipe ever! This authentic Tandoori chicken is tender, moist, juicy and a zillion times better than índíαn buffets!

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 35 mins

Ingredíєnts

1 Kg Chicken legs de-skinned and trimmed fat, cut into serving pieces

300 grams Greek yogurt or hung curd

1 tablespoon Ginger garlic paste

2-3 teaspoons Kashmiri red chili powder

1 teaspoon Garam masala powder

1 teaspoon Cumin powder

2-3 teaspoon Kashmiri chili powder

1 tablespoon Lemon juice

1 tablespoon Salt

3/4 teaspoon Black Salt (Rock Salt)

1 cup mustard oil

Directions

1. Firstly, clean, wash and make cuts on the chicken using a sharp knife. This will help the marinade to penetrate well in the chicken

2. Then, in a bowl, mix all the ingredíєnts of a first marination.

3. Add chicken and mix it very well in the marinade, then, cover the bowl with a plastic cover and leave it for 45 minutes-1 hour under refrigeration.

4. In another bowl, add all the ingredíєnts from the second marinade and mix well.

5. After the first done marinade, transfer the chicken to the second marinade. Cover the bowl with a plastic sheet and keep in the refrigerator for 7-8 hours or overnight. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator 45 minutes before you plan to cook.

6. Bake on a charcoal stove (tandoor) or in the Oven or on a gas stove. Here I chose to do it by roasting in the oven. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C. Remove chicken from marinade and place on baking tray or rack.

 

7. Broil the chicken for 25-30 minutes or until cooked. Tandoori Chicken is ready to serve. The sauce remaining on the tray after baking can be served along with chicken tandoori. I strongly advise not to discard it, but the choice is still all yours.

Fancy Best Vegan Chocolate Cake

Are you looking to make a very easy eggless chocolate cake? This chocolate cake recipe is not just eggless but vegan too. Don’t worry hearing the word vegan, because it doesn’t call for any special ingred̾i̾e ̾nts or difficult process. This is the easiest cake you will ever bake whether egg free or otherwise.

Ingredients

Dry ingredients

2 cups (250 g) all-purpose flour

1½ cups (300 g) granulated sugar

1 cup (80 g) cocoa powder

2 tsp (10 g) baking powder

1½ tsp (7 g) baking soda

½ tsp salt

Wet ingredients

1 cup (240 mL) unsweetened applesauce

½ cup (120 mL) brewed espresso

½ cup (120 mL) refined coconut oil, melted

½ Tbsp (7 mL) pure vanilla extract

Frosting

1 cup (224 g) vegan butter, softened

½ cup (40 g) cocoa powder

1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract

2 cups (200 g) powdered sugar

¼ cup (60 mL) unsweetened soy milk

¼ cup (60 mL) melted dairy-free dark chocolate

Buttermilk

1 cup (240 mL) unsweetened soy milk

1 Tbsp (15 mL) wнιтe vinegar

Decoration ideas

chocolate shavings

fresh berries

fresh mint leaves

roasted hazelnuts

Instructions:

1. Lightly grease two 8-inch (20 cm) round cake pans with oil and line the bottom with cut-out round pieces of parchment paper the size of the base of the cake pans.

2. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

3. To a medium bowl, add the milk and vinegar, and mix. Set aside. You will see it starts to curdle, and by doing this we are creating vegan buttermilk.
4. Place a sieve over a large bowl, and sift all the dry ingred̾i̾e ̾nts through it. Mix together, and then create a shallow well in the middle.

5. Returning to the medium bowl, add all the remaining wet ingred̾i̾e ̾nts. Mix together with the buttermilk.

6. Add all the wet ingredients to the shallow well in dry ingred̾i̾e ̾nts and mix until everything is just combined, but make sure not to overmix.

7. Divide the cake batter between the two cake pans, which will be about 2¾ cups of the batter per pan.

8. Tap the pan gently on the counter several times to flatten the dough and remove air bubbles. Bake in the center rack of the preheated oven for 30 – 35 minutes or until a thin wooden skewer comes out clean.

9. Meanwhile, creating the frosting. Add butter, sift in cocoa powder and vanilla into a large bowl, mix with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.

10. Then add the sifted powdered sugar and plant-based milk to the bowl, and mix again until the mixture blends well.

11. Once the melted chocolate has cooled a bit, put it in a bowl and gently fold it with a rubber spoon.

12. When your cake is done baking, let it cool for 10 minutes in the cake pan before switching to the wire rack to allow it to cool completely. Be patient with this, as a warm cake will make the mulch melt when applied.

13. If you want, you can flatten the gear with a serrated knife to create a flat surface for stacking.

14. Spread the butter with a spoon or knife and coat one of the cakes with thick cream.

15. Place the second cake on top and cover with excess frost.

16. Decorate the chocolate cake with the fruits of your choice and some mint leaves, and enjoy!

Notes

*Refined coconut oil is recommended as it doesn’t impart a coconut taste and scent. If you don’t mind the taste of coconut in your cake, unrefined coconut oil can also be used here. It is not recommended to substitute this for vegetable oil, however, as the hardening of coconut oil at room temperature helps retain the structure of the cake.

In place of butter, hard (not spreadable) margarine can be used instead.

Storage

Best if this is enjoyed immediately. The cake can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. But among friends and family, this cake won’t last very long!
The frosting can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Authentic Chocotorta recipe

A regular at most äŕġệńẗïńïäń celebrations and birthday parties, chocotorta is a simple no-bake dessert that can be prepared by even the most unsкιℓℓed cook, yet so delicious as if made by a professional. It is chocolate cake made with three äŕġệńẗïńïäń staple ingredíєnts: chocolate biscuits, dulce de leche, and cream cheese.

The cookies are softened in milk and layered with a combination of cream cheese and dulce de leche. The shapes of chocotorta can vary, while the biscuits can be soaked with chocolate milk, coffee, or even coffee liqueur.

Servings 12 slices

Ingredíєnts

600g dulce de leche

600g cream cheese

750g chocolate cookies (3 layers)

250ml coffee, sweetened to taste

GANACHE

80g dark chocolate

40 ml heavy cream

20g unsalted butter

For DECORATION

300g of dulce de leche and cream cheese (150g each)
chocolate shavings

Instructions

1. Mix the dulce de leche and cream cheese with a mixer set on low speed for two minutes — preferably, leave the cream cheese at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before mixing, so it’s easier to mix.

2. Line a deep 20X20cm baking pan (the bottom and the sides) with parchment paper, leaving enough to overhang, for easier unmolding.

3. Start a̾s̾sembling the cake. Dip each cookie shortly in coffee, then place each on the pan’s bottom, creating a cookie layer, and then spread it with a thin layer of dulce de leche and cream cheese mixture.

4. Repeat this step five more times — you should end up with 6 cookie layers and five layers of dulce de leche and cream cheese mixture.

5. Refrigerate for a minimum of six hours.

6. Once ready to serve, take out the refrigerator, place a large tray on top of the pan and flip to put the cake over the said tray. Take out the parchment.

7. To decorate the cake, make 300g mixture of dulce de leche and cream cheese, then spread the top of the cake thinly with the above mixture. Save some of the mixture for decorating later.

8. Prepare the ganache by melting chocolate, heavy cream, and butter in a bain-marie.

9. Wait until the ganache reaches room temperature, then place in a piping bag and thread the ganache along the edges of the cake for a drip effect.

10. Put the remaining dulce de leche and cream cheese mixture in the piping bag, and the pipe swirls along the edge of the cake.

11. Finally, fill the center of the cake with chocolate shavings.

12. Refrigerate for minimum of six hours before serving.

To serve

You can also use extra dulce de leche to pipe on top of the Chocotorta. You can sift some cocoa powder on top, or top with chocolate curls, crushed meringue, or serve as is.

Pull both sides of the overhanging parchment paper up to lift the Chocotorta.

Transfer it to a plate.

Slice it with a knife into thin slices. The Chocotorta is very rich and delicious, and certainly an indulgent dessert.

Storage

Store it in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Dobos Torta: нυиgαяу’s Iconic Layer Cake

Dobos torta is arguably нυиgαяу’s most famous layer cake. The iconic torta consists of six thin buttery-sponge cake layers, five layers of chocolate butter cream, and a layer of hardened caramel covering the top. But it’s not the flavors that make the cake so special—after all, it’s just chocolate, vanilla, and caramel, a traditional combination found in many desserts. It’s the distinctive presentation that has made the cake so famous.

The hard caramel top is cut into individual slices before it hardens, so each slice has a piece of caramel garnish. The pieces are either laid flat on top of the cake or else artfully arranged so they are standing on their sides.

PREP TIME: 2 hours

SERVINGS: 12

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CAKE

6 eggs, separated

1 cup of flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

275 grams confectioner’s sugar, separated

Pinch of salt

FOR THE FILLING

200 grams of butter

300 grams of dark chocolate, melted

4 eggs

200 grams of sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 tablespoon of Dutch-processed cocoa powder

FOR THE TOPPING

150 grams of sugar

3 tablespoons of water

2 teaspoons of lemon juice

FOR SERVING

1 cup of crushed hazelnuts (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Trace the outline of a 9-inch cake pan on six sheets of parchment paper, and cut the circles out.

2. To make the cake batter: In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks, half of the sugar, and the vanilla at high speed, until the mixture has thickened and is a pale yellow color. It should take between three and five minutes.

3. In another large bowl, beat the egg wḧïẗes until soft peaks form. Be sure to use clean beaters! Beat in half of the remaining confectioner’s sugar, just until combined, and then add the rest. The mixture should have stiff, shiny peaks.

4. Stir in about one-fourth of the egg wḧïẗe mixture into the yolk mixture, and then fold in the rest, until it is just blended. Sift the flour and salt together. Fold in half of the flour mixture, and then repeat with the other half (being careful not to over-mix the batter).

5. Each of the six layers of cake will need to be baked separately. To prepare the layers of cake, place one of the parchment circles on the baking tray and use a spoon to level it, spreading one-sixth of the dough over the paper in an even layer. Bake on the top rack of the oven, for about seven minutes (until lightly browned). When finished, let it cool, peel off the foil. Repeat with five other layers. Using a saucepan or a plate about the size of a cake, cut the edges of each cake so that they are even.

6. To make the chocolate filling: In a double-breasted bowl of broiler, beat eggs with sugar until mixture gently bubbles (about 5 minutes). Turn off the heat, add vanilla extract and keep whisking until the mixture cools. In a separate bowl, beat butter until fluffy. Add more chocolate and keep whisking until blended. Combine the two mixes and mix with cocoa powder.

7. To a̾s̾semble the cake: Place the best layer of cake on top and set aside. Spread about one-sixth of the cream on one layer, coat another layer on top and repeat until the five layers are covered with ice and stacked. Refrigerate and save the rest of the ice for the rim.

8. To make the caramel topping: Place the laid layer on a tray lined with parchment. Put the sugar, water and lemon juice in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, over medium-high heat. Stir frequently until all the sugar has melted. Continue boiling, without stirring, until the caramel turns amber, rotating the pan occasionally so that the sugar crystals stick to the sides.

9. Have a spatula and a sharp knife ready, as you will need to do it quickly before the caramel hardens! When the caramel is done, pour it immediately over the cake layer. Use a spoon to spread it evenly. When it does start to set (but before it hardens) cut the caramel layer into 12 equal wedge shapes. Let them cool completely. Put the dough on top of the cake and spread the rest of the ice around the edge.
