I was defending myself from posting food photos, but in the end it is so much fun to take those pictures that I need to give in. So here it goes... Our first cake on the blog!
This one is called (cuddling) Pumpkin bun cake with plum marmalade and I took the recipe from this page.
The actual cake (and photos) were done by Radek - I cannot take credit for that. I was really surprised by the taste of this yummie masterpiece - never thought it would be soooo good!
- 2,5 glass of wheat flour
- 10 g of dry yeast or 20 g of fresh yeast
- 0,5 glass of milk
- 3/4 glass of pumpkin puree
- 3 spoons of melted butter
- 1 tea spoon of cinnamon
- peeled rind of 1 orange
- 4 spoons of sugar
- 1/4 tea spoon of salt
All ingredients should be at room temperature.
Wheat flour mix with the yeast, add the rest of the ingredients and make a dough. Leave the dough covered by a cloth to double its size (around 1.5h). Then drop the dough from height and knead again.
Mould (25 cm) cover with baking paper (only bottom). Divide the dough into 10-11 pieces and form balls. Flatten them at hand and put plum marmalade (as much as possible, normally 1 big spoon), then stick together the edges covering marmalade inside. Put those balls on the mould close to each other (but leave space between them - they will grow and "cuddle"). Sprinkle the balls with crumble, put a cloth over the mould and leave for 30 min to double its size.Bake in temperature of 190ºC for 35 minutes.
- 1 glass of plum marmalade
- 60 g of melted butter
- 100 g of wheat flour
- 50 g of vanilla sugar
The taste of this cake is really irresistible. Combination of plums, orange, pumpkin, cinammon and vanilla sugar is just perfect for autumn evenings. I served it with cup of orange-cinammon tea and chillout music in the background. Watch out - this cake has a tendency to disappear quickly :)
