Tavalita-Lamington cake

 



Dragii mei nu am mai scris de ceva timp, dar astazi va aduc o prajitura foarte buna, pe care toti o stiti, se numeste Tavalita sau Lamington cake.
Lamington cake este o prajitura facuta din pandispan, data prin sos de ciocolata si nuca de cocos. Se crede ca prajitura a fost denumita dupa Lordul Lamington, care a fost guvernatorul Queensland-ului intre anii 1896-1901, sau dupa sotia acestuia. Identitatea inventatorului scestei prajituri este de asemenea incerta, se crede ca a fost bucatarul sef al lordului, care trebuia sa hraneasca niste oaspeti neasteptati, si a facut aceasta prajitura cu ingredientele ce le avea. Prima mentionare a acestei prajituri a fost facuta in anul 1896, intr-un ziar din Queensland.
Daca tot v-am spus cate ceva despre aceasta prajitura eu zic sa va dau si reteta.

BLAT:
6 oua
un praf de sare
6 linguri zahar
4 linguri ulei
6 linguri faina
o lingurita praf de copt

GLAZURA:
8 linguri zahar
300 ml lapte
50 gr. un
3 linguri cacao
esenta de rom 

DECOR:
200-250 gr nuca de cocos

MOD DE PREPARARE:
Blat:
Separam albusurile de galbenusuri, albusurile le punem intr-un bol si punem un praf de sare, urmeaza sa le batem cu mixerul, galbenusurile se freaca separat cu uleiul. Batem albusurile spuma, adaugam zaharul si mixam pana bezeaua devine lucioasa, adaugam galbenusurile frecate cu ulei si iarasi mixam. La final se adauga faina cu praful de copt si se amesteca cu o spatula de sus in jos. Se pune compozitia intr-o tava (25x35), pe hartie de copt, si se coace cam 35-40 min in cuptorulpreincalzit la 170 grade celsius. Dupa ce s-a copt scoate blatul si il lasam la racit.



Glazura:
Intr-o cratita punem laptele, zaharul, untul si le punem pe foc, un foc mediu as zice, pana se incalzesc bine, adaugam apoi cacaoa si esenta de rom, amestecam din cand in cand si lasam sa fiarba pana se ingroasa putin, tragem cratita deoparte si lasam la racorit.



ASAMBLARE:
Se taie blatul in patrate, mie mi-au iesit 24de patrate. Se da fiecare patrat, pe fiecare parte prin sosul de ciocolata iar apoi se tavalesc pe fiecare parte prin nuca de cocos.





LAMINGTON CAKE



Lamington cake is a sponge cake, coated by chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut. It is believed that the cake was named after Lord Lamington, who was governor of Queensland from 1896-1901, or after his wife. The identity of the inventor of this cake is also uncertain, it is believed that he was the chef of the lord, who had to feed some unexpected guests, and he made this cake with the ingredients he had. The first mention of this cake was made in 1896 in a Queensland newspaper. If I still told you something about this cake, I say I'll give you the recipe.

SPONGE:
6 eggs
pinch of salt
6 TBS sugar
4 TBS oil
6 TBS flour
1tsp baking powder

SAUCE:
8 TBS sugar
300 ml. milk
50 gr. butter
3 TBS cocoa powder
rum extract(few drops) or 1tsp of rum

DECOR:
200-250 gr. desiccated coconut

PREPARATION:
First of all preheat the oven at 170 Celsius.
Sponge:
We separate the egg whites from the yolks, we put the egg whites in a bowl and we put a pinch of salt, we are going to beat them with the mixer, the yolks are rubbed separately with the oil. Beat the egg whites, add the sugar and mix until the meringue becomes shiny, add the yolks rubbed with oil and mix again. At the end, add the flour with the baking powder and mix with a spatula from top to bottom. Put the composition in a tray (25x35), on baking paper, and bake for about 35-40 minutes in the preheated oven at 170 degrees Celsius. After baking, take out the sponge and leave it to cool.



Sauce:
In a saucepan put the milk, sugar, butter and put them on the heat, a medium heat I would say, until they heat well, then add cocoa and rum essence, stir from time to time and let it boil until it thickens a little, pull the pan aside and leave to cool. 


ASEMBLY:
The sponge is cut into squares, I got 24 squares. Give a roll to each square, on each side through the chocolate sauce and then roll on each side through the coconut.
