Cake de naranja y cardamomo













Hace pocos dias me di cuenta que la Navidad está ahí, a la vuelta de la esquina, asi que de aqui a la Navidad  espero aportar recetas fáciles y apropiadas siempre intercalando algunas recetas
Se que en Chile (al menos) el Pan de Pascua es un verdadero rito, hay de tantos tipos, de verdad que el único que como es el que hace mi mamá por el color, aroma y humedad
En muchas partes se hacen diferentes cakes. Este de cardamomo es maravilloso, si alguien no ha probado el cardamomo  hágalo es una especia maravillosa.
A mi me encanta.
Este cake se mantiene muy bien por varios dias, normalmente lo pongo en un tupper o una caja.

(Por favor tenganme paciencia si no hago la traducción inmediatamente, a veces no alcanzo así de simple, pero siempre me pondré al día.)

Ingredientes

aceite o mantequilla para el molde 
(para este cake usé uno de silicona, tienen la gracia que se desmoldan fácilmente y el cake no se rompe.)

3 tazas rasas de harina sin polvos de hornear (mas una cucharada para el molde)
1 cucharada de polvos de hornear
1 3/4 cucharadita de cardamomo en polvo (jumbo, Lider o en Unimarc)
1/2 cucharadita de canela molida
1/2 cucharadita de sal
3/4 taza de jugo de naranja
2/3 taza de aceite de girasol o de maiz
1 cucharada de ralladura de cáscara de naranja
2 cucharadita de ralladura de limón
1 cucharadita extracto de vainilla
3 huevos

Glacé

1 taza de azúcar en polvo o azúcar glass
4 cucharadita de jugo de naranja fresco
1 cucharadita de jugo de limón

Preparación

Precalentar el horno a 180°.
Despues bajarlo un poquito porque ya se mantiene el calor.
Aceitar o enmantequillar el molde que se va a ocupar (les digo al tiro los de silicona se van poniendo un poco feos con el calor del horno pero son super buenos para desmoldar)
(los de teflon son muy buenos tambien)
Enharinar y reservar mientras se hace el batido.
En un bol grande poner la harina, el azúcar, los polvos de hornear, el cardamomo, la  canela en polvo y la sal. 

 Hacer un hoyo al centro de los ingredientes y agregar el jugo de naranjas, el aceite de girasol u otro, la ralladura de naranja y la ralladura de limón, la vainilla y los huevos, unir y batir todo bien, puede ser a mano o con batidora eléctrica.Si está muy espeso (depende de los huevos) agregar dos cucharadas de yogurt normal y unir bien.

Colocar el batido en el molde ya preparado, repartir bien.
Cocinar por unos 45 minutos o hasta que al enterrar un palito de brocheta sale seco .(Si el horno está mucho rato bajar un poco el calor pero no mucho)

 Dejar reposar antes de desmoldar.

Darlo vuelta en un plato bandeja grande.
Preparar el glacé.
en un bol pequeño colocar el azúcar en polvo y agregar el jugo de naranja y de limón, revolver bien.
Despues repartir el glacé sobre el cake y dejar reposar hasta que se seque.

Chilli chocolate Mousse










The people follow my blog these years know me that Im not really typical in my recipes, but always inside of the classic and yummy recipes (always tasted) and here all tasted and are really critical (sigh)  so when I find this recipe in Good to know UK (really is a recipe from Weight Watchers).
All this is about the chilli thing in the mousse, (anyway is only 1/2 teaspoon) and really good well with chocolate.
Believe me:)

broken into pieces
4 heaped  teaspoon cocoa powder (without sugar)
4 tablespoon of water
 2 medium eggs separated
1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder
2 tablespoon caster sugar
some cherries
(fresh or canned)

PD :These cherries are the first (and I think the only ones)
from my yard and always think in a dessert would be beauty.
But the birds are really enjoyed them (more than us) well all in the earth is to sharing LOL


Method

Put the chocolate pieces into a heatproof bowl and place over a sauce pan of gently simmering water until melted.

Blend the cocoa powder with the hot water, then add  to the chocolate and stir really well until smooth.
Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Beat the eggs yolks and stir into the chocolate mixture. Replace the bowl over the saucepan of simmering water and cook gently for about 5 minutes stirring until thickned.
Remove from the heat and stir in the chilli powder.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then add the caster sugar and whisk again until glossy.
Fold through the chocolate mixture using a large meatl spoon.
Share between 6 small glasses and top with a cherry .

Mousse de chocolate








Los que me siguen hace un tiempo saben que dentro de lo clásico me gustan  las recetas originales o un poco diferentes.
Porque ademas gozo probando algo nuevo o diferente.
Además todas las recetas por supuesto que son probadas en mi casa que son MUY críticos (son un poco gourmet sobre todo mis hijos).
Me gustó esta receta de mousse de chocolate un poco distinta con un poco de ají en polvo (solo un poco) y queda maravilloso, por el sabor del chocolate es increíble que se puede probar con otras cosas y siempre es un plus.
Esta receta viene de un sitio que me gusta mucho Good to know recipes.UK.

Preheat the oven at 180°c.

 On a lightly floured surface, roll out two-thirds of the pastry and use it to line the base and sides of a 24cm pyrex
Add the artichokes mixture in  and then distribute .

 On a lightly floured surface, roll out the rest of the pastry, then lay on top of the pie, pushing in the edges to seal well.  Decorate the top with leaves made from any leftover pastry. Brush the top of the pie with yolk and milk

Bake on  oven by 25 minutes  or until is golden brown.

Let chill by a while before serving.
