Paine cu bundita (bundas kenyer) / Bundle bread


Ingrediente:
12 felii de paine
5 oua
4 linguri de smantana

Ouale se bat bine cu smantana (puteti folosi lapte in loc de smantana, eu n-am avut in casa si am ales varianta asta). Se dau feliile de paine prin compozitia de ou si se prajesc in ulei incins. Mie imi place asa simpla, dar puteti sa adaugati condimente dupa preferinta.
Se poate face si o varianta dulce, dar eu n-am incercat pana acum. Puteti vedea reteta la Elisa.


Painea asta cu bundita imi aminteste de micul dejun din copilarie, cand o serveam cu o cana de ceai. Acum am servit alaturi de o salata de rosii, castraveti si ceapa.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ingredients:
12 slices of bread
5 eggs
4 tablespoons of cream

Beat the eggs well with the sour cream (can use milk instead of cream, I didn't had milk and I chose this option). Dip the slices of bread in egg composition and fry in hot oil. I like it simple, but you can add spices as you like.
Can you make a sweet version, but I never tried before. You can see the recipe from Elisa.

Bundle bread that reminds me of childhood
breakfast, when I served it with a cup of tea. Now I have served with a salad of tomatoes, cucumbers and onions.

Telina pane / Fried celery


Ingrediente:
1 telina mare
3 oua

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ingredients:
1 large celery
3 eggs
2-3 tablespoons of flour
breadcrumbs
salt, pepper, paprika

Clean the celery, cut into 4, then slice it with thickness of a finger. Beat the eggs with flour, add spices. Dip the slices of celery in the egg composition, then in the breadcrumbs and fry in hot oil. The celery is soften and it tastes great.

Tort coronita cu capsuni / Strawberry cake


Blat dupa o reteta din suplimentul Practic in bucatarie "Prajituri traditionale romanesti"

Blat:

200 gr unt
4 oua
300 gr faina
1 praf de copt
200 gr zahar
125 ml vin rosu
Crema:
350 ml lapte
1 budinca de vanilie cu bucatele de capsuni
2 linguri de zahar
150 ml frisca lichida
Decor:
capsuni

Se freaca ouale cu untul moale, apoi se adauga zaharul si se mixeaza pana obtinem o compozitie cremoasa. Se adauga vinul, apoi faina si se mixeaza bine. Se toarna compozitia in forma unsa si tapetata cu faina si se coace aproximativ o ora la 180C.
Intre timp se prepara budinca si se lasa la racit. Frisca lichida se mixeaza pana se intareste bine, iar apoi se incorporeaza in budinca.
Dupa ce blatul este copt se lasa sa se raceasca si se taie apoi in 3. Se umplu foile de blat cu crema de budinca, se unge apoi si deasupra si se orneaza cu capsuni.

Foarte interesant blatul cu vin. Iar crema de budinca si frisca este o alta varianta la cea de budinca si unt. Mie mi se pare mai gustoasa.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dough:
200 grams butter
4 eggs
300 gr flour
1 baking powder
200 grams sugar
125 ml red wine
Cream:
350 ml milk
1 vanilla pudding with strawberry pieces
2 tablespoons sugar
150 ml whipped cream
Topping:
strawberry

Mix the eggs with soft butter, then add sugar and mix to obtain a creamy composition.
Add wine, then flour and mix well. Bake the about one hour at 180C.
Meanwhile prepare the pudding and let it cool. Mix the whipped cream until strengthens fine, and then incorporated in the pudding.
After the cake is baked let it cool and then cut into 3. Fill it with cream, and decorate with strawberries.
The wine cake has a very interesting taste. And pudding and whipped cream is another variant of the pudding and butter cream. I think is more tasty.
