Hello Dear Witches…!

 

Venezuelan gastronomy, consists mostly of simple preparations and delicious flavors, sample of it is this delicious cake that I set out to prepare today, is ideal to accompany a rich cup of coffee, or a good glass of cold milk, its sweetness and spicy flavor, gives much character and presence to it, so it does not need stronger companions.

I had really wanted to eat this cake for weeks, however I didn’t get the main ingredient, the papelón, panela or piloncillo, as it is also known elsewhere, it is this ingredient that gives it its characteristic flavor and color. And let me tell you that I managed to fulfill my desire to eat a piece of this delicacy accompanied by a good piece of llanero cheese jajaja.

Few ingredients and an extremely easy preparation make this one of my favorite recipes, but come with me and I’ll show you how to make this delicious cake. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

  • 800 g all-purpose wheat flour
  • 1 Panela of papelon approx 450 gr
  • 1 Tbsp sodium bicarbonate
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp of aniseed seeds
  • 1 tsp powdered cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. of cloves

600 ml water

 

Preparation 

 

  • Difficulty level: Low
  • Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
  • Baking time: 35 Minutes
  • Time Total: 50 Minutes
  • Yield: 24 Portions.

 

To begin, in a pot place the panela paper, which we have previously split into smaller pieces, add the aniseed, cinnamon and cloves, accompanied by 600 ml of water and bring to medium heat until the panela has melted, this will take about 10 minutes. With the melted paper, strain this liquid and let it cool.

Having cold the mixture of paper and spices, we proceed to add whole eggs and beat with the help of a balloon until well integrated, on the other hand, add the sodium bicarbonate to wheat flour and mix, then go adding to the mixture of paper spices and eggs with the help of a sieve, preferably add these dry ingredients in 2 or 3 batches, integrating well between one and the other to avoid lumps.

Once a homogeneous mixture is obtained, proceed to pour into a square mould, previously floured, and place in a preheated oven at 180 °C for about 35 minutes or until it comes out clean when a toothpick is inserted. With the cake still warm, unmold and proceed to cut.

After cutting we let cool and taste this delicious cake, with a good cup of coffee. I like to make it in square or rectangular molds, so that when they are cut like the ones I used to buy in the wineries when it was small, however they can make it in the mold of their preference, there are also those who after cutting them and even warm pass them through granulated sugar and take it to the oven for about 5 minutes, gives them a flavor and a delicious texture.

Personally I like to accompany it with a piece of llanero cheese, my father loves cola soda, my mother with coffee, my brothers eat it alone, and you’ve tried a cut, with what do you like to accompany it?

Hello Dear Witches…!

 

Time without bringing you my beloved cookies, the delirium of my brother and My Mathias, well also mine, to deny it. This afternoon while my son was sleeping I prepared myself to prepare some delicious orange cookies, and for a change I didn’t have the complete ingredients hahaha, for playing steemmonsters I forgot to buy butter or oil.

I immediately remembered the words that my father always says to me “You are an engineer, so eat them” and that was just what I did to make the delicious biscuits that I had offered to Mathias, at the end of the day he doesn’t dislike zero fat biscuits hahaha.

This is a recipe that I like, very simple, with few ingredients and little cooking time, a total wonder, ideal for when they call you telling you that in 1 hour comes visit your home and you have nothing to offer. But come with me and I’ll show you how easy this preparation is, Enjoy! .

Ingredients

  • 150 g sugar
  • 250 g all-purpose wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp sodium bicarbonate
  • 2 Eggs
  • Cortex of 1 orange
  • 1 tsp vanilla

 

 

Preparation 

 

  • Difficulty level: Low
  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
  • Baking time: 10 Minutes
  • Time Total: 20 Minutes

To begin, grate the orange peel and mix it with the sugar, with the help of a spoon, so that the sugar absorbs the oils of the orange peel, thus giving more flavor and aroma to our biscuits, continue adding the two whole eggs and beat well until the sugar dissolves.

Once the sugar has dissolved with the eggs, add the vanilla and mix. On the other hand, mix the sodium bicarbonate with the wheat flour and sift over the mixture of eggs and sugar.

With the dry ingredients already sieved, we proceed to integrate everything very well, in my case use a fork, I find it easier to mix this type of dough with it. Once the dough is integrated, we proceed to make little balls, with the help of a spoon, and place them on a tray with baking paper, to take them to a preheated oven at 180 °C for 10 minutes, or until they start to brown underneath.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 5 minutes to remove from the tray and enjoy a good cup of coffee, or a glass of cold milk, as I enjoy My Mathias.

A Witch in the Kitchen: “Ricota and Dulce de Leche Cake // Simply DELICIOUS!”

Hello my dear little witches…!

When we talk about cake with some kind of cheese and dulce de leche, simply my eyes jump, because I know that something delicious has to come from there, and no doubt my favorite, this is one of them, also because it has a touch of lemon, which makes their flavors stand out. Yesterday some relatives called me, to tell me that they would come to visit me, and it occurred to me to receive my people, with something sweet to make their visit more pleasant.

When we spend time without seeing our family and friends, and the time of reunion arrives, we always have a lot to say, so let’s talk constantly on the phone, nothing replaces a good conversation in person, and what better way to make it more enjoyable than enjoying a good cup of coffee along with a delicious dessert. This is why today I will show you how to make this delight, so that you have it in mind on any special occasion. Come with me and I’ll show you how to prepare this rich Ricota cake and Dulce de Leche. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Preparation 

 

  • Difficulty level: Low
  • Preparation Time: 20 Minutes
  • Baking time: 40 Minutes
  • Yield: 8 Portions

 

To begin this preparation, we must first make the dough that will serve as the base and cover of the cake. For this we add in a cup the butter and the sugar, which we will beat until forming a soft and whitish cream, and in this point we will add a whole egg and the rind of a lemon, to continue beating until everything integrates very well.

In another bowl or on a table, sift the wheat flour with the baking powder, and make a volcano to add the preparation of butter with sugar and egg, to start kneading with your hands, to form a broken dough, it does not need to be very homogeneous, that is its texture.

We cover a mold for cake or a demould, with 2/3 of our dough, we reserve, in another cup we add the sugar, the ricotta and the vanilla, and we integrate it very well. Then we add the zest and the juice of a lemon, and the spoonful of corn starch, we mix everything very well.

he mold with the dough, add a layer of dulce de leche, and continue pouring the mixture with ricotta, to finish making the cake with the other third of dough we had left, adding it crumbled all over the surface, to take it to a preheated oven at 180 ° C for 40 minutes.

I love to accompany this cake, with a piece of Guayana cheese, and you’ll say, “More cheese!”, but the contrast of flavors that this combination gives, is simply amazing. Great to serve with a good black coffee, in short I repeat, is one of my favorite desserts.

Tips of the Day

 

  • You can add two eggs to the preparation of the cake filling, to make it creamier
  • If you wish you can replace the lemon juice with orange juice
  • In place of dulce de leche you can put strawberry or orange jam, the contrast of flavors with the citrus of these fruits is great

A Witch in the Kitchen: “Basic Chocolate Cake, A DELICIOUS Classic “

Hello Dear Witches…!

 

Yesterday my sister-in-law, the procuress aunt of My Mathias, was on her birthday and I couldn’t let her day go by without preparing a delicious cake for her, after all she is the woman who makes my best friend happy and the third most important man in my life, my brother, as I always lacked some ingredients to make a basic cake or a rich carrot cake that is his favorite, but as you can imagine, this didn’t stop me.

She is a good chocolate lover like me, so I set out to prepare a classic sponge cake, adding a touch of cocoa and turning it into a chocolate sponge cake, which served as a base for me to make a very delicious wet cake, and I think I achieved the goal, to surprise her with a rich cake that was to her liking and everyone’s liking. This is one of my favorite cakes, because with few ingredients you can make miracles, this list is very fast and also very economical.

Being a basic sponge cake, it serves as a base for delicious stuffed or wet and cold cakes, which you can turn into a classic vanilla cake just by replacing cocoa with wheat flour, but come with me and I’ll show you how easy it is to prepare this delicious dessert Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

  •  6 Eggs
  • 150 g all-purpose wheat flour
  • 120 g sugar
  • 30 g sugar-free cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sodium bicarbonate

 

 

 

Preparation 

  • Difficulty Level: Medium
  • Preparation time: 10 Minutes
  • Baking time: 30 Minutes
  • Total time: 40 Minutes
  • Yield: 16 Portions

 

We begin separating yolks of egg whites, and in a big bowl we beat until taking to point of snow our whites, once to the wished point, we are going to go adding the yolks, one to one without stopping beating.

Already having the beaten eggs we begin to add the sugar, that we will be adding little by little, if never to stop beating, the secret of this sponge cake is in the air that is integrated to the mixture. Once the sugar is integrated, we add the vanilla and we begin to add the dry ingredients, sifting them at the moment of integrating, cocoa, wheat flour and bicarbonate, and with the help of a palette we are integrating with enveloping movements so as not to take the air out of the mixture.

With the dry ingredients already well integrated, we just have to pour the preparation in a mold, in my case use the mold to serve the cake, so add butter to the mold and enharine, if you want to demould this cake the most advisable is to place waxed paper at the bottom and sides, then dumped into a preheated oven at 180 ° C for 30 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.

In this opportunity I used this sponge cake as a base for a wet cake, type three milks, for which I mixed two evaporated milk and condensed milk, and with the help of a wooden stick I made huequitos for all the surface, this with the sponge cake still hot, and I overturned the mixture of milk until bathing it all, so that it was humidified completely, let it cool and already cold the crown with a ganache of chocolate, to make it even more greedy.

The result, a very wet cake, and extremely delicious, in addition to my mother, my father, siblings, My Mathias and the birthday asking for more cake hahahaha, was really a success.

This simple cake besides being practical and quick to make, is our best ally in more elaborate cakes, we can accompany it with a good whipped cream and pieces of strawberry, moistening just the cake with a simple syrup with notes of liquor, and leave them in front of your guests with the feeling of being in a luxury pastry shop. This mixture changes makes it ideal for a delicious gypsy arm, the versatility of this recipe is undoubtedly very broad, remaining to the imagination of each cook, because it adapts to virtually everything, and you, with what would you combine this delicious cake?

A Witch in the Kitchen: “Pumpkin Vegetable Biscuits “

Hello Dear Witches…!

 

Delicious biscuits never hurt, especially if they are accompanied by a good cup of coffee, and these that I come to show you today are definitely DELICIOUS, very easy to make and the best of all, economical, because they do not contain eggs, milk or butter, so with less than 1/3 of what you would buy a package of biscuits you can prepare these that are really delicious, as well as nutritious.

I tell you that Mi Mathias and my brother abhor pumpkin or auyama, do not tolerate it in salty preparations, so I risked to prepare them to see if my baby accepted them, and his verdict was “mama, mas”, and for his part my brother disappeared half of the tray in a matter of minutes, (they had to see his face when he found out they were), so based on this I can say that it is perfect for introducing this vegetable nutrient in the diet of the youngest, because also the sugar content is minimal, but come with me to see how I prepare these cookies. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 500 gr steam or roasted pumpkin pulp
  • 1/2 Cup of sugar
  • 1/2 Cup corn oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. grated fresh ginger

 

Preparation

  • Difficulty level: Low
  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
  • Baking time: 15 Minutes
  • Total Time: 25 Minutes
  • Yield: 40 Biscuits

To begin we crush the pulp of the pumpkin with a pureed pisa or a fork, until we are without lumps, and add the sugar and oil, and with the help of a beating balloon or an electric mixer, we beat very well until obtaining a cream.

Once our cream is obtained, add the cinnamon, vanilla essence and ginger and mix well, then add the dry ingredients that are the flour along with the baking powder, this we will do with the help of a sieve and in two parts, mixing with the help of a spatula.

Once the dry ingredients have been integrated, we have our dough ready, we continue forming little balls with the dough and placing them in a tray with a little oil in the bottom, to take them to a preheated oven at 180 °C, for 15 minutes, and Voilá!, ready our Delicious Pumpkin Biscuits.

As you can see is a recipe very easy to make, with few ingredients, economical and especially very nutritious, does not need the addition of large amounts of sweeteners because the pumpkin has a natural sweetness that helps a lot. Accompanied by a rich cup of tea or coffee, they are great for a rich snack for the older ones. And you, what would you accompany them with?

Tips of the Day

 

  • Chocolate chips look great on these cookies.
  • If you can’t tolerate gluten, you can replace wheat flour with rice or oatmeal and they are just as delicious.
  • You can take the dough to the fridge for half an hour after it has been prepared and then stretch it to use figure cutters, and make them more attractive to the little ones.

A Witch in the Kitchen: “Inventing in the Kitchen A Red Velvet Cake Without Egg”

Hello Dear Witches…!

 

 The cake Red Velvet  , a cake of chocolate or cocoa, whose main characteristic is its typical and striking red color, and sometimes a red-brown (as I’m left to myself) and also filled with a delicious cream made from cream cheese, well that is the classic, and is not the one that today I will show you jajare jajare. And I don’t have eggs or butter and much less cream cheese to fill it, sad no!, but where others see a block to do something I want, I always look for a little window and the way to carry it out, and this time is no exception.

Although this is not the classic recipe, it is an adaptation that I made, because the desire to eat it seized me hahaha, is that today is Friday of cake at home, and the public acclaims it, then I said to myself hands to work, not to leave my father and My Mathias with the desire, with that we are practicing with him so that he goes extinguishing the candles, already is near his birthday. Enjoy!

This cake has already been shown to you, and as I always tell you it is very easy, and as you can see, it adapts easily. To begin, in a bowl, we sift the wheat flour with the cocoa powder and the baking soda. I like to sift dry ingredients about three times, which brings more air into the mixture.

Add the sugar and mix to integrate very well, and with the help of a measuring cup, open 3 holes, and one place the vinegar in another oil and in the last vanilla.

We continue adding the milk and the coloring, we mix with the help of a beating balloon to integrate very well without beating too much. Pour the mixture into a previously floured mould and take it to a preheated oven at 180 °C for 40 minutes or until it comes out clean when a toothpick is inserted. Let it cool.

3 tablespoons of cream cheese, 3 tablespoons of sugar and the juice and rind of half a lemon, will be my companion in this adventure to try to emulate the frosting of a cake red velvet, we beat everything very well until we are a little liquid cream, with which we will bathe the cake to give a contrast of flavors, let me tell you that it did not fall bad at all, cut, serve and Voilá!, to enjoy this Delicious Emulation of Red Velvet hahahaha.

The reviews were good hahaha, it’s really rich. Observations for me, first, to add more coloring, so that the red is brighter, and second but not less important, to make more quantity, because miraculously they let me try hahaha.

The classic red velvet cake has black coffee, so if you want you can replace a cup of milk with a cup of coffee, whether you want to make it with vegetable milk, or even with water, the results are just as delicious. I have always found two flaws in this cake, one, which ends very quickly, as I said before, and another, that My Mathias literally becomes a cyclone, is activated a thousand percent, and then there is no way to calm it down hahaha.
