Poppy seed roll in pita bread

Once Upon a time I posted a recipe poppy seed oatmeal roll this option is much easier, because you do not need to make the dough, but it still turns out very tasty.


  • Lavash (the composition should be flour, water and salt)
  • Poppy seeds-200-250 GR.
  • 50-70 ml of any milk (delicious with almond and coconut)
  • 1 chicken egg
  • Jerusalem artichoke syrup / honey to taste
  • Optionally, you can add dried fruits, butter, nuts, lemon zest to the poppy filling.
  • A pinch of salt

How to do:

1. filling.

The most important thing in the filling is to grind the poppy. Either dry in a coffee grinder, or already steamed in boiling water, grind with a blender. I use the second way as it is faster. So:

Poppy pour boiling water in a saucepan or ladle, in which you will then cook it. It is better to pour more water, then salt the excess. Leave it for at least 30 minutes, I pour it at night. So it becomes very soft and malleable to grinding.

Then drain all the water that is above the level of the poppy and grind the future filling with an immersion blender for 2 minutes. It is not necessary to turn it into dust. After that, evaporate the remaining water over medium heat, then add 50-70 ml of milk mixed with egg white, a pinch of salt and Jerusalem artichoke syrup/honey to taste (try to your taste).  Everything is well and thoroughly mixed so that the protein is completely rastovrilsya in the filling, and not baked in pieces. If desired, you can add dried fruits, butter, nuts, lemon zest to the poppy. Just complete improvisation. When the mass is not liquid-remove from heat and let cool (this is important).

2. twist the roll.

First of all, turn on the oven to warm up to 180 degrees.

Lavash is better cut into small pieces. Because if you twist a large thick roll, then in the very center the pita bread will not be baked and will be too wet.

This filling is enough for me for 3 pieces of about 30 by 40 cm + to decorate the roll from above.

Evenly distribute the filling on the surface of the pita bread, quickly fold it until it starts to get wet, grease the top with egg yolk and decorate with poppy seed filling. Decoration is optional.

3. baking.

Bake the rolls on the middle shelf without a fan (and then they will break in the process) for about 25 minutes. On top should get a ruddy crispy crust, then immediately take it out, otherwise it will all crack.

Let the roll cool a little, cut and eat. But if you have the strength to wait, then it will be even tastier to completely cool it, cut it. And just before serving, warm up at 200 degrees in the oven for 5 minutes. Then it will not be hot inside, but very crispy and appetizing outside.

Olivier salad (our family recipe)

It is this salad that I have eaten since childhood, and honestly, I have not found a recipe tastier than it. Neither with caviar, nor with shrimp and squid, nor lean, nor with fish, and with anything else does not give me such a buzz as our family recipe.


  • Beef pulp-700 g.
  • Chicken eggs-5-6 PCs.
  • Potatoes-2-3 pieces of medium size
  • Carrots – 2 PCs. large or 3 pcs. medium size
  • Sweet and sour juicy apple – 1 large or 2 small (I like more apples, it tastes juicier and fresher)
  • Salted / pickled cucumbers-5-6 PCs.
  • Canned peas (without sugar) – 1 jar or 200-250 G.
  • Mayonnaise – to taste. I really ask you to buy delicious or make it yourself. Unfortunately, a stupid Mazik can spoil the taste of even a very tasty salad.
  • Horseradish (optional, but it will be much more interesting and tasty).

How to do:

1. meat, eggs and vegetables I usually cook the day before. Pour boiling water over the meat and cook for 2-3 hours until very soft. I cook without spices and salt because the salad will have a lot of spicy and salty ingredients. Cool completely, then cut into cubes about the size of peas. I like it when all the ingredients in this salad are the same size.

2. potatoes and carrots wash and cook in salted water for about 30 minutes. You do not need to clean them. Readiness is checked with a knife, it should easily enter to the middle of the largest vegetable. Immediately drain the water, completely cool, clean and cut into cubes.

3. eggs cook in salted water for 10-15 minutes. In salt, so that the shell easily departs. Fill the finished eggs with cold water, clean right in it. So it is easier to clean, and the shell all settles to the bottom, there is definitely nothing left on the eggs themselves. Cut into cubes.

4. apples need to be washed, cleaned and similarly cut into cubes.

5. cucumbers cut into cubes, like all the previous ingredients. I recommend buying them small. If the cucumbers are very large, they will have tasteless huge seeds and a lot of brine, and they themselves will be too sluggish, not crispy. In addition, small cucumbers can not be cleaned, their skin is tender.

6. peas are thrown back into a colander, drain the brine and rinse them a little. You can not rinse, the main thing is to drain the brine well, because there is a lot of salt in it.

7. combine all the ingredients in a large container, which can be hermetically sealed. I do not recommend all mayonnaise at once, unless you immediately eat it all. It is better to mix the required amount of salad with the sauce immediately before serving. Salad can be served in portions, laying it out in a culinary ring. I decorated it with mayonnaise, pickled cucumber straws and boiled egg yolk. I highly recommend eating this salad with horseradish.

Taking this opportunity, I want to thank my mother for this recipe (and also for the recipe Herring under a fur coat) and wish everyone a good appetite!

Buckwheat bowl with egg and tahini-soy mayonnaise + life hacks for cooking the buckwheat

The bowl is a deep dish in which you are quick, tasty and beautiful can combine correctly is a useful meal. Usually there is a portion of complex carbohydrates (whole grains, root vegetables), a serving of protein (legumes, tofu, mushrooms, meat, fish/seafood, poultry, cheeses, eggs), lots of vegetables/fruits (fresh or cooked) and some fats (nuts, seeds, avocado, nut pastes, olives, sauces based on oils).

The bowl can be very boring, and can be a work of art, it all depends on your imagination)) My crackaol simple, but very tasty. Love it for Breakfast, although for a light lunch/dinner is also a great option;)

Ingredients (for 1 serving):

• Boiled buckwheat, you can use any (you can substitute quinoa) – 3 tablespoons,

• 1 chicken egg

• Half an avocado,

• Mushrooms – 3-4 pieces (I have mushrooms),

• A small tomato or 4 cherry tomatoes,

• Balsamic cream (optional, but very recommend) – on the tomato a bit

• Truffle oil (optional but very recommend) – a bit on the mushrooms,

• A little lemon juice and olive oil – all to sprinkle on top (also optional)

• Salt/pepper/spices/herbs/sesame seeds – optional.

Also you can put cheese on it (cheese is particularly relevant) and any salad leaves. You can stew them together with the mushrooms. Spinach, for example, very suitable.

Ingredients for soy mayonnaise:

It is based on universal sauce Urbachwhere salt substitute for soy sauce.

• 3 tbsp tahini,

• 3 tbsp lemon juice/Apple cider or white wine vinegar,

• 1 tbsp olive oil,

• 1-2 tbsp soy sauce (depends on its type, place 1, then sample and add more if necessary),

• 1 clove of garlic, passed through a press (optional)

• 1 tsp miso paste (optional)

• 3 tablespoons of water (watch the consistency, add gradually),

• Pepper, to taste.

How to do:

1. Cooking buckwheat (roasted brown).

Tell method, and the number you define yourself, I usually cook 1 Cup, enough for 5-6 servings for this recipe.

Cereal to sort, wash carefully until clear water, drain in a colander, then spread on a heated pan and fry on medium heat stirring constantly. Buckwheat needs to dry completely and make amazing aromas. After that, switch off immediately. Roasting buckwheat subsequently makes it crisp and very flavorful.

While fried buckwheat boil water. 1.5 cups if you like a little al’dente grits, and 2 cups, if you like boiled groats, but not in porridge. I put 2 cups.

Then put the buckwheat in a heatproof dish with a lid, fill with water, throw a pinch of salt, cover and either cook it in the oven (I like that way), or on the stove.

If in the oven, then preheat it to 180C, put down the buckwheat for 15 minutes, then turn off the oven and wait until all water is absorbed in the rump (it’s 40 minutes – 1 hour). Perfect your buckwheat is ready.

If on the stove, then cook on very low heat for 20-25 minutes and then let it rest under a lid until all water is absorbed in the grits.

Cooking buckwheat (unroasted green).

Here is a slightly different story. Green, I would not be subjected to excessive heat treatment. The proportions of buckwheat and water are the same as for brown.

Sort, wash thoroughly (this affects the crispness of cereal), throw in a pot of salted water, bring to a boil, then cook on low heat under lid for 15 minutes until tender (in the process not to disturb), either immediately turn off and allow to swell by wrapping the pot with something warm. 30-40 minutes is enough.

The second method is more gentle to “living product”, but longer. Try both ways as you like.

If you have buckwheat cooked in advance, then reheat it in the microwave or on the stove in a saucepan, the bottom of which poured a little water. Fry the buckwheat should be on medium-high heat stirring occasionally, and long, so it is not much seethe.

2. Soy mayonnaise (I do for the future, it is perfectly stored in the refrigerator for 3 days exactly).

Shake all the ingredients until smooth. I do it in a small jar in which he kept the last bit of sauce.

3. Prepare the remaining ingredients.

All my. Tomato and avocado slice. If you need to preserve the color avocado, then sprinkle it with lemon juice or lime juice.

Cook the egg either poached (recipe here), or in a bag (recipe here).

Mushrooms fry in a drop of oil on high heat so they get flavored crust. In the end, I add a little thyme, salt and freshly ground pepper. Also you can add mushrooms, onions, garlic, ginger, other herbs and spices. Cook mushrooms as you like, the main thing that it was delicious and combined with the remaining ingredients to the bowl.

4. Collect the bowl.

Buckwheat lay down, then 2 tbsp of mayonnaise (or how much your conscience will allow))), and on top of all the other ingredients, as in the photo. Tomatoes sprinkle with balsamic vinegar, mushrooms and truffle oil. Next, I love all pour a little juice of lemon/lime, but it is optional.

By the way, this dish is very easy to do from many people. Made of billet, and then just put in the number of plates, and quickly put everything away;)

Beet pancakes (you can make either sweet with chocolate and peanuts, or with salty goat cheese, balsamic cream and walnuts)

You still make pancakes from just flour, then I go to you))) These babies bombyces delicious all by themselves, and with the toppings – it’s just mind-blowing. The amazing thing is that they are mostly consist of it is from beets.

I already have shared the post about the other fruit and vegetable pancakes, but about these I decided to write separately to all of them noticed and tried)))

The recipe is about 20-25 pieces with a diameter of 8-10cm (chocolate, it turns out chickpeas on 7 more, since the ut more ingredients).

Ingredients base:

• Whole wheat flour – 100-120 g of tsz or 50/50 wheat with buckwheat flour (General flour you can and should experiment, but then its scope may vary),

• Water – 250-300 ml (any, but very tasty with coconut low-fat),

• Baked/boiled beet – 300 g

• Eggs – 3 PCs.,

• 3 dates, pitted,

• Vegetable oil (any neutral flavor) – 2 tbsp.

• Salt – 0.5 tsp., (try the first batch of pancakes and add salt if necessary).

This can stop, but I suggest + two variations of these same pancakes.

Additional ingredients for chocolate pancakes:

• 2-4 tbsp of cocoa (look at your taste, I love everything and more))) is direct too many do not put – will taste bitter.

• 2 tamarind or to taste

• Approximately 70 ml of milk,

• Ground vanilla – 1 tsp or seeds of half a vanilla pod

• Cinnamon – 1 tsp,

• Ground ginger – 0.5 tsp.,

• Optional zest of half an orange,

• Optional can also knead the chocolate chips, raisins or other dried fruits, but do not overdo it, pancakes and the “base” is very tasty. These ingredients contribute to the finished dough at the end.

The ripe bananas is needed here (I highly recommend them fry until brown in a drop of oil) and roasted peanuts/peanut butter for feeding or any other nuts you like. Another excellent these blinci serve with mascarpone and cherry jam.

Important point. Their beautiful chocolate color and flavor is evident after roasting, don’t worry about what color and Arat beet test again.

Additional ingredients for the cheese pancakes:

• 2 cloves of garlic (or 0.5 tsp. of dry ground garlic),

• A few leaves of purple Basil (or 0.5 tsp. dried),

• Black pepper and Cayenne pepper – pinch,

• 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar

• A few roasted walnuts, goat cheese and balsamic cream to serve.

Also these pancakes can be served with pickled herring and thinly sliced green Apple, and a boiled tongue and horseradish. I mean, remember what beets goes well and feel free to use pancakes instead.

If you do not like some spice, do not use.

How to do it.

1. Bake the beets.

Wash beets, wrap in parchment and bake for 50-60 minutes at 180C. Speed of cooking depends on the size of the roots, after 40 minutes pierce with a big fruit with a sharp knife if it is without crackle, and a Herculean effort – beets are ready. Let it cool and then you can clean. Cleaned recommend over a sink or bowl with water, so as not to paint all around;)

2. In blender the beet sending all ingredients except flour, punch and gradually add flour. Consistency should be like liquid yogurt.

Keep in mind that if you experiment with other types of flour, the quantity will be different, do not overdo it. It is better to add gradually and watch for consistency.

Ideally, let the dough stand for 15-20 minutes, stir and then bake. This is necessary in order to test the developed gluten, which makes pastry more elastic. But if you don’t have the time to bake immediately. Especially if you use flour without gluten.

3. Fry in a pan with good nonstick coating. The pan well to heat, and then fry on a medium heat. The first batch with a drop of oil, then on a dry pan.

On the first side to fry until the pastry top is not dry, and the pancakes quietly, you can easily flip to the second side for 1-2 minutes until tender.

It is important each time to stir the dough before sending the crepe in the pan. If this is not done by the end of the bake the dough on the bottom will be very tough. The first and last pancakes are different in texture.

4. Feed.

You can serve them immediately, but most of all I love these pancakes warmed up. Usually bake a lot at once in the evening. Part is frozen and part is heated in the oven in the morning and is served as described above)

The fact that my recipe is very little flour in this recipe and the pancakes turn out a bit first. But if you give them soak overnight, then reheated, they will be just perfect. High fruits and vegetables, at least flour. Like pancake, eat, and like or not;)

If you eat the pancakes right away, I recommend them after roasting bake for 5-7 minutes at 180C, but this is optional.

Shakshuka of my dreams with goat cheese

I love shakshuka and I tried it in different places in different recipes. In the end, I have formed a very clear understanding of what needs to be shakshuka of my dreams) I love to do it with lots of vegetables (traditionally with tomatoes and onions and roasted sweet peppers), spicy and use a whole bunch of spices for diversity of taste. Served with warm bread and goat cheese, well at the very least simply with curd. It’s so delicious!

My recipe is a bit complex, but I describe a more simple version of it, so don’t be alarmed and definitely try to prepare.

Ingredients for shakshuka (serves 4):

• 8 chicken eggs or to taste,

• 800 g (2 cans) tomatoes in own juice/tomatoes Pilati, or 6-7 large fresh tomatoes

• 2 PCs. onions medium size,

• 2 pieces sweet red pepper (take large fleshy),

• 2-4 pieces hot chili pepper (depends on the variety of pepper or your love of spiciness), can be replaced by 0.5-2 tsp. ground dry chili pepper.

• 6 cloves of garlic,

• 2 tbsp tomato paste (optional to enhance the tomato flavor),

• 2 tbsp of sweetener (I have Jerusalem artichoke syrup),

• 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar (it’s not for acid, but for the taste, it is not necessary to substitute other types of vinegar),

• 2 tsp ground paprika,

• 0,5-1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional, try first to do without, and then with paprika),

• 1 teaspoon of ground cumin,

• 1 tsp ground coriander,

• 1 tsp oregano/marjoram,

• 0.5 tsp. cumin,

• 0.5 teaspoon of turmeric,

• 2 Bay leaves,

• 2 gvozdichki,

• Salt and black pepper to taste.

Ingredients for serving:

• Goat cheese to taste (you can substitute cottage cheese, cheese, feta),

• Bread/pita (preferably freshly baked, or heated in the oven),

• Herbs (parsley, cilantro, chives, mint), I like a little bit of everything to add

• Olive oil to sprinkle on top (optional).

Also it can be very helpful in hummus, the babaganoush was or grilled eggplant with garlic, you get a very satisfying Breakfast or even lunch, and maybe dinner;)

How to do:

I recommend doing sosus to shakshuk for the future. Some days he just lie down in the refrigerator, it can freeze and then just heat, beat in your eggs and enjoy.

1. The first thing you need to roast a pepper. My it cut in half, remove the seeds and again opolaskivaniem to accurately remove all unnecessary. Put on a baking sheet cut down. Bake at 200 C to a strong tan markings. Then remove the pepper in an airtight container, allow to cool. While it cools, make shakshuka on, and then come back to it, remove the skin and cut the flesh in small dice.

I baked the pepper and not just put it to obzhivatjsya with a bow for two reasons: so the dish won’t be tough pepper skin from the grilled peppers taste so much richer and more interesting. If you lazy to bother, then skip this paragraph and go directly to step 2.

2. Now prepare all the other ingredients. Onion peel and cut into small dice, chili pepper clean away the veins and seeds, the garlic, peel and punch in a blender along with red chilli in the paste. If blender will not cope, add a bit of tomato. If no blender, then finely chop the pepper, and the garlic through a garlic crusher.

If you decided not to roast sweet peppers, then wash it well from extra cleaned, cut into small-small cubes and fry together with the onion (see p. 3).

3. On a small amount of vegetable oil fry the onion with the Bay leaf and cloves to a caramel shade. It should not be burnt, but cooked should not be, so do everything on medium heat, do not hurry.

4. Then take out the cloves and throw out, and to the onions add the tomato, garlic, chili, cumin, coriander, cumin, turmeric and fry while stirring until the appearance of a garlic flavor (about 30 seconds), then add to the roasted peppers and tomatoes. Stir and tormented over medium heat stirring occasionally until the sauce is well thickened (about 20 minutes, maybe more).

5. When the sauce is ready, take out a Bay leaf and stock, and add the remaining spices (paprika, oregano, salt, pepper, Apple cider vinegar and sweetener). Try and balance the taste that was sharp enough to your taste, spicy and definitely not sour. Should be so delicious that you’ll want to eat the sauce already in this form. If so, then he is ready.

Important. Keep in mind that cheese and eggs slightly soften the taste, so it needs to be a little too much.

6. Make sauce of deepening and break them on the egg without damaging the egg yolk. Can leave it as is, or stir in a little protein to the sauce, and the yolk mix if you like. I love the whole yolk and stir with the sauce for a protein. Cook eggs on medium heat until whitening of the protein, the yolk should remain liquid. I recommend to cover the pan to make it happen faster.

Important. If you use cheese or hard cheese, then cut it into cubes and fold into the sauce, and then break in your eggs.

7. Serve shakshuka, posypav chopped herbs and a sprinkle of fragrant olive oil with a spoonful of cottage cheese goat cheese and warm bread. There are highly recommend by hand(!). Take a piece of bread and it as a spoon to scoop the egg with a spicy sauce and cheese. Just fly away!

Carrot cake with cream cheese and caramelized pecans + life hack for the preparation of a perfectly flat cakes

It’s bonkers!

My carrot cake is not cloying like in classic recipes. The cake itself is quite sweet from the carrots and raisins, and the cream I add the Jerusalem artichoke syrup. By the way, I love dense and moist cakes and not the air. So if you coincide with me in tastes, then catch the perfect recipe.



• 400 g carrots (about 4 medium size)

• 175 g whole wheat flour (or you can do 50/50 with oatmeal),

• 100 g of raisins,

• 50 g pecan or walnuts,

• 3 eggs,

• Juice and zest of a large orange,

• Zest of half a lemon,

• 4 tbsp vegetable oil,

• Optional 50 ml of sweetener if you like sweeter,

• 3 tsp ground cinnamon,

• 2 tsp. ground ginger,

• 0,5 tsp ground vanilla

• 0.5 tsp. ground nutmeg,

• 0.5 tsp. sea salt

• A pinch of ground white pepper, allspice and ground cloves.

You can also put the dough in cocoa, star anise, cardamom, coriander, if you like these spices.


• 1 tsp ground vanilla

• 6 tbsp Jerusalem artichoke syrup or any sweetener of your choice

• The juice of half a lemon (zest from a, put in the dough),

• 400 g cream cheese or mascarpone, or cream, or a mix of these ingredients. Or coconut cream (for wagashi version).

I like this pie with curd cheese, but to make the cream is not very greasy and caloric, I mix my schedule I cheese with Greek yogurt in the following ratio: 250 g of cheese + 150 grams of yogurt.


• A handful of pecans or walnuts (can be more)

• 1 tbsp Jerusalem artichoke syrup or any sweetener of your choice

• A pinch of salt.

How to do:

1. Carrots wash, peel and grate on a small grater or grind in a blender. Nuts (50 g) chopped, not super small. Rinse the raisins, a little dry. Grate the zest of orange and lemon, squeeze the juice of an orange and half a lemon. Lemon juice to set aside for the cream.

2. Mix all ingredients for dough except flour, bring to a homogeneous condition. Then add the flour, stir again.

3. Take a baking sheet, covers it with baking paper and distribute the dough with a spatula all over the surface.

The cake will be about 1.5 cm thick. Bake at 160C for approximately 35-40 minutes. For 5 minutes before the expected end of baking start to check the readiness with a toothpick (it should not be raw dough). If the cake inside is moist, and the top is flushed, close it with foil to avoid burning.

4. While baked cake, prepare the cream and nut topping. For the cream whisk all of the ingredients until smooth and put in refrigerator to cool. The cream will be dense, and easy to spread on cakes.

5. A handful of nuts dried in the oven at 160C for 10-15 minutes minutes or until it will turn brown. Still hot nuts and mix with a tablespoon of syrup and a pinch of sea salt. Cool, then coarsely chop.

6. Ready cake cool slightly at room temperature, then cut in half, then into 2 parts. Get a perfectly smooth cakes and size, and thickness.

If suddenly crooked cut, put all 4 layers on each other, trim edges, and trimming empty sprinkles cake, or eat;) the Cakes put in the refrigerator so they are fully cooled.

Can easily use this hack for other layered cakes.

Important. If you will bake a carrot cake in a standard round shape, it is better to use split. To cut the cake only when the cake is completely cool. And baking time will be different, because a thicker crust baked through longer.

7. After everything has cooled down, grease each cake with cream, do not forget about the sides of the cake. Put it in the fridge overnight or for a day. Before serving, sprinkle with sweet-and-salty nuts and crumb cakes.

I recommend either cut into 8 rectangles or thin piece along the whole pie, like so:

Enjoy your meal, try not to eat all at once. Pie is sooooo rich, keep in mind. Come for Breakfast and for evening tea;)

An amazing combination of pumpkin with herbs, cheese and sweet onion can be used in many dishes. I’m doing with it, and pasta and pizza, but for Breakfast decided to use for the first time, and for good reason. This is the bomb!

First you need to make caramelized onions. I wrote the recipe here. Recommend to do a lot, because with this miracle ingredient can be cooked many delicious dishes (recipe 1, recipe 2, recipe 3).

Pumpkin is also baked a whole pan. If I have something left from cooking eggs, then make her a salad or pasta/pizza, all of which are already mentioned above.

Zucchini muffins with buckwheat and coconut flour (gluten-free & dairy-free))

These muffins are special because they are high in fiber, and not the test. They get a little wet, but I it is a very good choice. By the way, the presence of zucchini in baking and no one notices;)

Ingredients (8 – 10 muffins, depending on the size of the form):

• 2 zucchini about 400 g,

• 2 eggs,

• Juice (about 5 tbsp) and zest of half a lemon (zest first three, then squeezing the juice),

• 75 g of buckwheat flour,

• 25 g of coconut flour,

• 3 tbsp coconut oil

• 5 tbsp sweetener or to taste (I have Jerusalem artichoke syrup),

• 3 tsp cinnamon or to taste

• 1 tsp ground vanilla

• 0.5 tsp. salt,

• 1 Cup of berries (I had blueberries, but in General, the stuffing can put any dried fruit, nuts, other berries, chocolate, etc.).

How to do:

1. My zucchini and grate on a coarse grater. If you don’t want the muffins had a greenish color, then be sure to peel. If you green will not confuse – do not bother. Sprinkle with a little salt, mix and leave for 10 minutes, until juices. Then carefully squeeze the juice from the zucchini using a towel or nut milk bag. That is you put a spoon of grated zucchini in a towel, wrap and squeeze in the sink, juice is not needed.

2. Next, whisk in a blender until smooth eggs with zucchini and all other ingredients except flour. Then gradually introduce the flour and knead until smooth. The dough will be as sour cream. Then manually mix up the dough the filling of your choice. If you use frozen berries, they can not unfreeze.

3. Grease molds with vegetable oil (I had coconut), and fill them with batter 2/3 full because the muffins will rise a bit. Bake for approximately 1 hour at 160C on the middle shelf. All ovens are different, and molds different in size (the larger the form, the longer it is baked muffin), so looking at the situation. If the cakes were covered with a Golden crust and a toothpick comes out almost dry, the cakes are ready.

4. The finished muffins should be cooled, then remove from the mold, so they were all mushy, and give them a little stand on the plate below the surface is a little dried up. I then just dried (on the baking sheet, not in the form) in the oven in fan mode for 5 minutes so that the crust became even more appetizing. But it is optional.

Shortbread dough using buckwheat flour and vegetable oil

This option is suitable not only for vegans and fasting, but, because the dough composition can be varied, adapting it to their preferences. The main thing – to observe the basic proportions.

Thus, the ingredients (enough for 3 cake thickness of 0.5 cm for the mould 26 cm in diameter):

• 300 g of flour. Variations: it’s either the flour from green buckwheat, or 2/3 quinoa flour + 1/3 oat flour or half buckwheat flour and whole wheat/spelt.

• 2 eggs, or 2 “flax eggs” (2 tbsp flax seed to grind into flour + 5-6 tbsp of water, stir, leave for a few minutes until thickening).

• 70-90 g of nuts or coconut flakes (you can use your favorite nuts or those that are more suited to the dish, which you cook).

• 60-70 g of vegetable oil (I olive),

• 0.5 tsp. salt,

• Sweetener if you make the dough for sweet pastries – to taste.

• Water/any dairy product like kefir or yogurt – a few tablespoons if necessary to bring dough to the desired consistency.

How to do:

1. Mix all dry ingredients, add all wet ingredients (except water). Stir until smooth, if the dough will seem dry, add 1 tablespoon of water. The dough should turn into a homogeneous moist crumb, which can be collected at kom.

2. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and allow to soak in the refrigerator for a couple hours, at least at least 30 minutes. Actually you can just to cook from it, it just is not as supple as the fridge.

Because this dough I mostly use for making quiche Lorraine, I just divide the whole mass into 3 parts. 2 servings of freeze, and from 1 serving, make cake.
