Step by step instruction of cooking Easter cakes-the treats
To prepare dough sponge method using yeast for baking of the bread is. All products in advance to warm at room temperature. Wheat flour high quality have to sift through.
For the preparation of the dough is 0,75 liters of milk to boil. In a bowl pour about 1.5 cups of flour, and into it pour the boiling milk while stirring to avoid lumps. The dough will have a thick consistency. (If lumps were formed to smash them with a mixer!). Cool to lukewarm.
250 ml of milk a little heat, add 1 teaspoon sugar and dissolve them instant dry yeast "SAF-MOMENT" for baking, wait until the formation of the foam cap. When you use these yeast dough is rolled out easily and is not compacted. Finished products have a vanilla taste and delightful aroma.
Brewed and cooled to lukewarm flour mixture to mix with the activated yeast, add 1/2 Cup of sugar (of the total), stir, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place to rise (about an hour), it is more convenient to use a 7 l pot. The dough needs to "wander" until then, until it fall off. The photo shows a moment when the dough has ripened and started to fall.
Yolks (all) whip with 4 cups sugar until fluffy, add sour cream, salt. Stir with a mixer to mix all ingredients. This mixture is added to the dough, add the sifted flour about 12 Cup, knead the dough well by hand or stationary mixer nozzle "hook". This amount of dough I kneaded parts: 2 approach a stationary mixer nozzle to the test "hook" and 2 call in the CPS (each serving has vynashivalas a minimum of 15 minutes). The amount of flour is approximate, you may need to add some sort of quantity extra as the characteristics of different flour, the yolks have different weights. Mix the dough to put in a large saucepan, cover with cling film and leave to rise and increase in 2-3 times (about 2 hours).
Soft butter "melting" consistency gradually stir in approaching the dough with your hands to combine all the components, then kneading process to continue with the help of tips "hook" about 15 minutes for each portion of the test. It is possible that at this stage will have to add flour if kneaded with KHP - measure bun, by the end of the replacement should get the ball well spinning in a bucket, make sure that under the bun was not "puddles" from test! When kneaded nozzle "hook" the dough should gather around the hook on the bottom of the bowl should not be batter! This is important. Well mixed dough is smooth and elastic. The prepared dough is left to rise and increase in volume in 2-3 times (in a warm, draft-free place covered with cling film or a towel). Here is coming up the dough when it is divided-runner mills as though a thin thread.
Punch down the risen dough and knead for 15-20 minutes, then begin forming. Forms necessary to lay baking paper (sides and bottom), fill with dough to 1/3 and leave for proofing for 30-40 minutes, bake in the oven until the samples on dry Lucino, I set to 180 C, then reduce to 160 C (focused on the characteristics of your oven). Baked cakes to completely cool.
One of the options for holiday baking will be a bun-holder "Easter egg" from curds (similar to cottage cheese Easter, recipe here http://www.povarenok .ru/recipes/show/749 23/). For this a piece of dough kneaded with the addition of flour so that the texture was tight, divided into 4-5 pieces, roll cakes the size of a saucer, each layer of dough smeared with oil (melted butter or vegetable odourless). Form as indicated on the photo, hold together with cooking string so that when the baking form is not collapsed during proofing of dough put on top of a shot glass, wrapped with foil, once the dough is a little "grab" in the oven, the design can be removed, bake until tender. "Easter egg" shape of the curd mass in the cheese Easter recipe, wrap in plastic wrap and put in a cooler to harden butter. Pre-baked with red food coloring small pies cut into slices, dried in the oven, was milled in a blender to a state of crumbs, collapses "egg" in the crumb. Before serving, assemble the meal, the bun can be sprinkled with powdered sugar, or even hot grease hot sugar syrup, it will Shine.
For making mini cakes using small cups or silicone molds, which fill one-third and leave to rise for 20 minutes. One fruit cake is baked and red for decoration.
For making a protein frosting using the recipe Eroshenko: vzbit 2 protein to "soft" peaks, continuing whisking, add 1 tbsp icing sugar (total 300 g), in the middle of whipping add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. The icing dries quickly, smoothly!
For a young lady I had cooked the meal "egg-in-egg" outer "egg" consists of two halves of the baked dough, as a kinder, topped with protein frosting and decorated with icing. Boiled egg grease with vegetable oil and fasten using foil in the baking dish and top with the wrap test (pre-mixed pastry with the addition of flour), a good fasten, bake and completely cool, cover with icing, then decorate with icing for my taste. The recipe for the icing here: http://www.povarenok .ru/recipes/show/581 33/. Inside is cottage cheese "egg" (prepared in the same way, see step 8), which is first rolled in candy sprinkles for cakes. (part of photo steps to do are forgotten as distracted!).
For a friend that is on a diet, made dessert with mini pies and berries (we used frozen cherries, raspberries, blackberries, you can use seasonal fruits to your taste ). I cut off a piece of this cake!
