Choco fruit cake

IMG_4406

This summer was really hot and I still baked cakes at least once a week. Since my little angel was born in April, in lack of time I served only simple desserts this summer 😉 Not counting special occasions like birthdays of course! One day I made simple fruit cake with chopped dark chocolate and it was so delicious. Friends asked me for a recipe several times so it’s high time I share it.


It’s one of the simpliest dessert I ever made, a must try for those who never baked a cake before.

You can choose almost any fruit, I used peaches and blueberries…

 

   
“Simple choco-fruit cake”

-serves 8 people-

120g unsalted butter
6 tbs sugar
5 eggs (you can use 3 whole eggs and 4 egg yolks if you have some leftovers)
1 greek yogurt (plain or fruit)
120g plain flour
3 tbs coconut flour
1 tbs baking powder
2 tbs starch
fruit (you can use almost anything you like-peaches, blueberries, raspberries, pears, plums…)

confectioners’ sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 190C/375F.
Butter an 26cm/10-inch cake pan and line bottom with a round of parchment. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, coconut flour and starch.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. With mixer on low, beat in eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Beat in 1/2 the flour mixture, then yogurt. Add remaining flour mixture, mix just until combined.
Spread batter into pan and sprinkle desired fruit and chopped chocolate over batter.
Bake until cake is golden, about 30 minutes and than loosely tent with foil and bake until cake pulls away from side of pan and a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 minutes more.
Let cake cool completely in pan. Run knife around cake edge and remove cake from pan.
Dust well with confectioners’ sugar before serving. It tastes best served warm with vanilla ice-cream.

Brza i ukusna voćna torta

Iako zbog nepodnošljivo visoke temperature mnogima ovog ljeta nije palo na pamet uključiti pećnicu, ali ja sam torte pekla gotovo svaki tjedan. Naša se slatkica rodila krajem travnja pa sam u nedostatku vremena isključila komplicirane deserte sa dnevnog rasporeda.

Početkom ljeta pripremala sam večeru za goste pa mi je trebao desert koji se brzo sprema, a u hladnjaku su se našle borovnice i par komada tamne čokolade pa je tako nastala krajnje jednostavna, a jako ukusna torta. Obećala sam recept mnogim prijateljima pa ga napokon objavljujem na blogu. Obzirom da je riječ o gotovo najednostavnijem kolaču koji sam radila toplo preporučam svima koji se inače ne usude često peći slastice.

“Jednostavna čoko-voćna torta”

-za 8 porcija-

120g maslaca
6 žlica šećera
5 jaja (ja stavim često 3 cijela te 4 žutanjka koja mi znaju ostati od doručka)
1 grčki jogurt (može bilo koji jogurt,običan ili voćni)
120g bijelog brašna
1 prašak za pecivo
3 žlice kokos brašna
2 žlice gustina
voće po želji (borovice, maline, breskve narezane na kockice, šljive…)
tamna čokolada (možete izostaviti ali daje poseban ukus)
šećer u prahu za posipanje

Zagrijte pećnicu na 190C.
Premažite putrom stranice kalupa veličine 26cm, a na dno stavite izrezan masni papir kako se torta ne bi zaljepila za podlogu. U velikoj zdjeli pomješajte brašno, prašak za pecivo, kokos brašno i gustin. Mikserom tucite maslac i šećer; kad se šećer otopi dodajte jedno po jedno jaje dok se smjesa dobro poveže. Stavite 1/2 mješavine brašna, umješajte jogurt, a zatim ostatak brašnaste mješavine. Ulijte u pripremljeni te stavite komadiće voća po želji te nasjeckanu tamnu čokoladu. Bit će dovoljno cca 200g voća te oko 2-3 reda čokolade. Možete koristiti i zamrzuto šumsko voće ali bolje ispadne sa svježim. Pecite oko 30 minuta te potom prekrijte aluminijskom folijom te nastaviti peći narednih 20 minuta. Kad se potpuno ohladi odvojite od kalupa te pospite sa šećerom u prahu.
Poslužite najbolje još lagano toplo sa kuglicom sladoleda od vanilije.
