Cake "ladies fingers"
Cake from the category of complex. We took for its preparation only experienced hostess. But actually cook this cake is not so difficult. Time, though, it takes a lot, but tasty ... Yum (as yet ready!). By the way, in essence this cake - not even a cake in the usual sense, and original dessert. Nevertheless, we are accustomed to consider him a cake.

Cups sifted flour;

To make this cake you need to make choux pastry. The recipe is as follows. Pour the milk into a saucepan, add butter and salt, and then give the mixture to boil. Then pour the flour and to all a good stir (directly on the fire). Then remove the pan from the heat, give the brew through a little cool, and one trying to drive into the egg mixture, and each subsequent add the egg after it is completely mixed with the previous test.
Now we need to bake a "ladies' fingers". In fact it is normal profiteroles, only narrow and dlinnenkie. For their preparation is necessary to lay a baking pan with paper or plain paper, but oiled. Then, using pastry syringe (bag kornetika) need to squeeze on a baking small fingers - thin "sausages" thickness of not more than one centimeter. Please note that during baking profiteroles increase in the amount of approximately two times, so that leave between them a place on a baking sheet.
Preheat oven and then put in a baking it for about ten minutes - during which time the temperature was maintained at 220 degrees oven.

Cake "Bear in the north"
The recipe for this delicious homemade cakes, is probably one of the oldest and most famous. What was the reason for such an interesting name? Perhaps the similarity of the pattern of the cake in the context of a well-known wafer sweets? And maybe, too, like the taste? One thing is for sure - this cake recipe is quite simple, and we will need it for the following ingredients:
2 or 3 cups sifted flour;
A glass of sugar;
Cup sour cream;
2 tablespoons butter;
3 teaspoons of cocoa powder;
Half a teaspoon of baking soda.
For the cream:
2 cup sour cream;
A glass of sugar;
Nuts (peanuts and walnuts).
For a start melt the butter and then mix it with sugar. Later in the same bowl pour soda, put sour cream and stir again all good. Now we need to put here as half of the flour and knead the dough. The dough was not very thick, but it is not terrible - it is not yet ready. Then separated by exactly half the dough and spread it to another bowl and then add to this half of the cocoa and mix well. Thus we get two types of tests for skin - white and chocolate. Now you need to divide the remaining flour and mix with a half and both parts of the test. If the elastic dough of flour will not be enough, you can add a little more - the amount of flour varies on the degree of stickiness and density of sour cream.
Then divide each half of dough into three parts and bake cakes. We are doing it this way. The dough is put into a form that pre smazhem butter or baking paper, place it, cover and gently mash your hands on the bottom, forming a flat cake. If you use silicone bakeware, then lubricate it or obscure it is not necessary. It remains only to make a few punctures on the flat shortcake with a fork or a knife and send the form in the oven (preheated to two hundred degrees). Bake cakes quickly - just eight to ten minutes.
Each finished the cake (still hot) crop, aligning the edge - the cooled cake layers become brittle. Trim spread on a baking sheet and dried in the oven - you will need it for the cake decoration. When the cakes are ready, we proceed to the preparation of the cream. Recipe cream also remarkably simple - cream, whipped with sugar. Beat the cream, gradually podsypaya her sugar, and then add to the cream milled (comminuted) nuts. The number and extent of chopped nuts define your own.
Still needed and place the cake. Puts cakes turn (white chocolate) and abundantly lubricate them with cream. Boca cake and coated with cream and sprinkle with crumbs, cooked from scraps. The top of the cake (and it is a chocolate cake) decorate to your liking. It can smear with cream and sprinkle with chocolate chips or shavings can be made using a stencil pattern and powdered sugar, and can be brought down a little oil cream (white or chocolate) cake and decorate it.
Pie "actress Caprice"
Another very "home" cake. By the way, the recipe of its preparation is known in several versions. However, the name of the cake also sounds different. Sometimes "whim", but there is also the "secret". It is prepared from the protein "test", which is baked in the oven, but often for the preparation of this cake using ready-made meringues - protein cakes or cookies. The second option - the easiest, but the first - a "home". Let's try this cake of the first embodiment, all the same, we consider recipes homemade cakes.
Egg whites - 6 pieces:
Sugar - 1 cup.
For the cream:
Bank of condensed milk;
A pack of butter.
For the glaze:
Sour cream - 3 tablespoons;
Butter - 1 tablespoon;
Sugar - half cup;
Cacao - 1 tablespoon.
Walnuts, hazelnuts and peanuts.
First chilled, beat the egg whites in a solid foam. Willingness to check the method of "standing fork" or "inverted pan." In the first case the plug, vertically set in the middle of the pan with proteins, must be firmly in the second - proteins from the pan upside down does not fall out. Then, gradually adding protein sugar (a teaspoon), continue beating the meringue until it becomes shiny and elastic.
Now the prepared baking sheet, enveloping his baking paper and food foil, and spread it protein patty, leaving enough space between them. Baking immediately send in a preheated oven and vpekaem about forty minutes on low heat. Attention! During baking meringues oven door will not open! Otherwise, the meringue will settle, and the meringue will turn out flat. If you cook the meringue in a microwave, it will take no more than five minutes. However, in both cases, you need to leave the meringues in the oven just until they are completely cool.
To prepare the cream take a little melted butter, stir it gently with a mixer or whisk and then, continuing to whisk, add the condensed milk in small portions. Ready cream should easily move away from the walls of the pot in which we stir. Recipe for traditional glaze: Put the cream in a saucepan and butter and heated until the oil is growing. Then add sugar mixed with cocoa and to cook until the glaze starts to thicken.
Putting the cake, spreading meringue layers and bonding them butter cream. Laid slide the cake pour glaze (not hot, but not fully cooled) and sprinkle with walnuts. Recipe cake "Caprice actress" made from ready-made meringues differs only in that it does not have to bake the meringues.
