Iubesc macul! Ador prajiturile cu mac si ma tot gandesc la un desert pe care l-am mancat acum cativa ani in Germania, in Garmish, un fel de placinta cu foarte, foarte  mult mac in interior. O nebunie… Era iarna, muntii plini de zapada, am mers pe jos ore intregi pana la cabana… Am fi schiat noi, daca stiam cum :) Atat de frumos a fost drumul, atat de minunati muntii, atat de perfecta cabana, incat totul, inclusiv desertul de vis, a ramas inscris in inima  mea la „favorite”. Parca vad si acum nasucurile rosii inghetate ale copiilor si ochisorii fericiti… Probabil ca efectul hipnotic al macului a fost exact ce trebuia :)  In sfarsit, iarna nu mai vine inca o buna perioada de timp, cel putin asa sper. A venit primavara. Mure. Capsuni. Zmeura.  Soare. Verde. Albastru. Galben. Auriu. Lumina…

Prajitura cu lime, mac si mure & cream cheese frosting

Ingrediente

    Prajitura

    • 85 g unt (nesarat, la temperatura camerei)
    • 245 g zahar
    • coaja rasa a 2 limete
    • 50 g seminte de mac
    • 170 ml lapte
    • 235 g faina (cernuta)
    • 2 lg praf de copt
    • putina sare
    • 3 albusuri de ou (batute spuma )
    • 150 g mure (zdrobite cu furculita, piure)

    Cream cheese frosting

    • 130 g branza Philadelphia (foarte rece)
    • 50 g unt (nesarat, la temperatura camerei)
    • 250-300 g zahar pudra

    Mod de preparare

    Incingem cuptorul la 170 grade C. Tapetam o tava circulara (removable bottom) cu unt si hartie pentru copt.
    Amestecam bine untul, zaharul, coaja de lime si macul. Adaugam incet laptele, amestecand (consistenta nu va fi omogena). Intr-un alt vas mixam faina, praful de copt si sarea, apoi adaugam crema de mac, in 3 etape, amestecand bine de fiecare data. Razuim bine lateralele vasului pentru a incorpora si eventualele depuneri. Adaugam murele, amestecam usor. Adaugam albusurile spuma, amestecam usor.
    Turnam aluatul in tava pregatita si coacem prajitura in cuptor 30 minute.
    Lasam prajitura sa se raceasca in tava, apoi o scoatem din forma. Cand este complet rece, o decoram cu cream cheese frosting.

    Amestecam bine cu mixerul zaharul si untul pana obtinem un amestec omogen. Adaugam cream cheese si amestecam aprox 5 minute, pana obtinem crema – frosting. Atentie! Daca amestecam in exces, se taie crema.

    Nota

    Prajitura este delicioasa si daca folosim zmeura, capsune sau afine in locul murelor. Pofta buna!

    English version: Lime, poppy seeds & blackberry cake with cream cheese frosting

    I love poppyseeds! I love poppyseeds cakes and I keep thinking of a dessert we had some time ago in Germany, in Garmish. A kind of pie filled with an enormous quantity of poppyseeds. Crazy… It was winter, snow capped mountains, hours and hours of walking to the lodge… We would have skied, if we knew how :) The path was so beautiful, the mountains so magnificent and dramatic, the lodge so perfect and cozy, that instantly everything, including the dessert, was forever in my heart, in the favorite memories „folder”. I remember my kid’s red noses and their happy little eyes… Probably the hypnotic effect of the poppy seeds was exactly what we needesd after such a trip :)  Anyway, winter is far away… At list, that’s my hope. Spring is here. Blackberries. Strawberries. Raspberries. Sun. Green. Blue. Yellow. Gold. Light…
     
    A wonderful cake for a beautiful day! Easy to prepare & so delicious, with a well deserved festive touch from the cream cheese frosting… What to celebrate? Spring! Spring is here…
     
    85 g unsalted butter, at room temperature + 245 g sugar + zest of 2 lime + 50 g poppyseeds
    170 ml milk
    235 g flour + 2 tsp baking powder + a little salt
    3 egg whites, mixed until it becomes a dense foam
    150 g blackberries, mashes (with the fork)
     

    Cream cheese frosting
    130 g Philadelphia cream cheese, very cold
    50 g unsalted butter, at room temperature + 250-300 g confectioner’s sugar

    Heat the oven to 170 degrees C. Prepare a round cake tray (removable bottom), with butter and baking paper. Mix well the butter, sugar, lime zest and poppy seeds. Slowly add the milk, mixing (the consistence is not homogenous yet). In another bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt, then add the poppyseeds cream, in three steps, mixing well each time. With a silicone spatula scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl, making sure there are no solid parts left.    Add the mashed blackberries, mix slowly. Add the egg whites foam and mix carefully. Pour the batter in the prepared tray and cook in the heated oven for 30 minutes. Let the cake cool in the tray. Prepare the cream cheese frosting: mix well with the mixer the butter and sugar, until you obtain a fluffy foam; add the cream cheese and mix for aprox 5 minutes; do not over mix.  When the cake is cold, put the cake in the plate you like and put the frosting on top. Lovely ♥
