Dessert cake with poppy seeds and lemon cream

Dessert cake with poppy seeds and lemon cream

First, make the lemon cream to have enough time to sit in the fridge. To do this, mix the caster sugar with the food starch and vanilla, add the milk little by little, and the resulting composition is given in a bain-marie and mixed constantly, until it thickens and becomes like a thick cream.

After the composition has cooled, remove from the heat and allow to cool, stirring occasionally, so as not to catch crust on top. When the composition has cooled, add the grated lemon peel and mix with the butter until it becomes frothy. Add the juice from a lemon and mix for homogenization, then put the cream in the fridge for 1-2 hours to harden.

For the countertop, first separate the egg whites from the yolks. Mix the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they start to grow, then gradually add: sugar, vanilla, egg yolks, flour mixed with baking powder and finally the three tablespoons of poppy seeds.

Pour the composition into a pan greased with butter and sprinkled with flour, then put in the preheated oven at medium temperature, and when the top has risen nicely and browned, remove from the oven and allow to cool.

For the syrup, boil a little sugar with water, and when it cools, add the lemon essence.

When the countertop has cooled, cut it into two equal sheets and syrup the base sheet. Grease the sheet with half the amount of cream. The second sheet is also syruped, on the side that will be superimposed over the cream. Grease the second sheet with the rest of the cream and put the cake in the fridge for a few hours.

After a few hours, take the cake out of the fridge, slice and garnish as desired (possibly with quarters of lemon slices).

Keep in the fridge until exhausted.

1

In order for the top to grow nicely, separate the egg whites well from the yolks, before mixing.

2

So that the countertop "does not fall", let it cool in the oven off, with the door open.

3

Do not remove the top from the baking tin until it has cooled.

4

For the cream, always mix the composition put in a bain-marie, so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan and does not form lumps.

5

Stir from time to time in the composition taken from the bain-marie, so that no crust forms on top and remains fine.

6

Do not add butter to the composition until it has cooled completely. Otherwise, the cream will not harden, no matter how long you keep it in the fridge.

7

The cream should stay in the fridge for 1-2 hours to harden before being greased on the counter.

8

Cut the worktop only after it has cooled completely.

9

The essences are added to the syrup only after it has cooled completely.

10

Keep the cake in the fridge until done.

Easter with cream cheese and poppy seeds

May the Holy Holidays of Easter bring you much peace and light in your souls!

A few days ago I made a delicious one tart with cream cheese and poppy seeds, which I will surely repeat for Easter, among other traditional recipes that I will make then (see also the recipe for lamb stew, the one for lamb steak).

It looks a lot like the recipe for bread, only it has an extra layer of poppy seeds. I love poppy seeds, and in this Easter, it combines extraordinarily well with the layer of cream cheese.

Easter with cream cheese and poppy seeds it is made very quickly and is perfectly preserved for 2-3 days (maybe even longer but with us it was finished in 3 days).

  • lemon / orange peel (optional)

Preparation & # 8211 Easter Countertop

  • Mix the sugar with the soft butter (at room temperature) and the vanilla sugar, until we obtain a homogeneous cream. Add the eggs, one by one and mix until they are perfectly incorporated (if after adding the eggs, the butter cream gets a cut appearance, don't be scared, it will recover completely when we add the flour).
  • Mix the flour with the baking powder, sift it and add it to the butter cream, together with the milk, alternating them. We will get a fairly dense but homogeneous dough.

Preparation & # 8211 Poppy stuffing for Easter

  • Mix the poppy seeds with the sugar and grind them in a robot, about 2 minutes if you want to feel the consistency of poppy seeds or 4 minutes, if you want it very fine. Then add eggs, cold melted butter, sugar, vanilla sugar or a little rum essence and flour mixed with baking powder.
  • Mix until completely homogenous.

Preparation & # 8211 Cheese cream filling

  • Add the dough to the top and level it. Over it add the poppy seed filling, level it carefully and over the poppy seeds, add the cheese filling.

  • Put the easter in the preheated oven at 180 ° C, on the second step from bottom to top, traditional function (bottom and top heat) and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Baking time it is very important at this Easter because if you leave it too long, it will come out quite dry. After 30 minutes, stick a toothpick in the Easter cheese. If it comes out slightly wet due to the cheese filling, remove the tart from the oven (the cheese hardens after it cools). If the toothpick comes out of the pass with traces of poppy or countertop, hold it for another 3-4 minutes and repeat the toothpick test.
