Prijatelj Aljoša je praznoval rojstni dan, tako da sem zopet imela izgovor, da spečem torto:)
Naredila sem jo v obliki lego kocke, ker mi vsakič, ko pridem na obisk, kaže svoje gradbene sposobnosti iz legic. Slišala sem, da sem jo naredila rahlo neproporcionalno, ampak banan pač nisem mogla narediti bolj debelih, zato so ti valji na vrhu malo premajhni. Banane se na splošno niso izkazale kot najboljše za mazanje s kremo, ker spustijo vodo in se na njih skoraj nič ne prime.
Sama vsebina je bila super. Biskvit je bil sočen, malinova kašica ravno prav kisla in v kontrastu s precej sladko kremo, ki sem jo namazala okrog. Krema je sicer za moj okus malo presladka (recept naslednjič), tako da se lov za najboljšo kremo nadaljuje. Je pa res, da je super mazljiva in lahko z njo delamo praktično karkoli.



Torta bi lahko izgledala malo lepše, vendar mislim, da smo na koncu vseeno vsi bili zadovoljni z rezultatom, pritoževal se navsezadnje noben ni🙂

Glasbena podlaga: Open

Malinova torta z vanilijevim biskvitom 

Vanilijev biskvit
4 jajca
1 1/2 skodelice/ 300 g sladkorja
1 čajna žlička vanilijevega ekstrakta
1 skodelica/ 230 g mleka
1/4 skodelice/ 60 g masla
2 skodelici/ 280 g moke
2 čajni žlički pecilnega praška
1/4 čajne žličke soli

Segrejte pečico na 165°C / 325° F.
Stepajte jajca 4 min, nato dodajte sladkor in stepajte še dodatnih 4-5 min, dokler masa ni bledo rumene barve. Na najnižji hitrosti vmešajte še vanilijo. V drugi posodi presejte vse suhe sestavine, nato jih dodajte k jajčni masi in jih nežno vmešajte. V ponvi segrejte mleko in maslo, ravno toliko, da se maslo stopi. Rahlo vmešatej v maso. Vlijte v naprej pripravljena pekača. Pecite od 35-40 min (odvisno od pečice, oz. če vso maso vlijete v en pekač pecite vsaj 1 uro). Odstranite iz pečice in pustite stati v pekaču še 10 min, nato obrnite biskvit na ploščo in pustite, da se popolnoma ohladi.

Malinova kašica
450 g malin (lahko zamrznjene)
4 žlice rjavega sladkorja
nastrgan olup ene pomaranče
sok ene pomaranče
V posodi zmešajte vse sestavine in rahlo zmeščajte, da dobite kašico. Z njo namažite torto.

Raspberry cake with a vanilla sponge cake
It was my friends birthday, so I had a reason to bake a cake🙂 He loves Legos, so I decided to make him one Lego brick. It was quite challenging, because I have never worked with this kind of cream before. It was a butter cream with white chocolate. It was lovely to work with (do clearly I need a little bit more practice), but it was a little bit to sweet for my taste, so the search for the perfect cream continues. Someone also told me that I didn`t make the little connectores very proportional, but hey, I can`t make bananas bigger than they are, and yes I could have made them with the cake itself, I tried actually, but they wouldn’t come out of the little ramekins, so I just used bananas. As it turned out, that wasn`t the best idea, because the frosting would not stick to them, they also released some water, wich wasn`t perfect, but it was good either way. The birthday boy loved it, so I`m happy🙂

Vanilla sponge cake(recipe from here)
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup butter (lightly salted)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Beat eggs in large mixing bowl with paddle attachment for 4 minutes.  Do not skip this step!
Add sugar, and continue beating for another 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and stir on low until just combined.
In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients.  Add to eggs and sugar on low speed until just combined.
In a saucepan, heat milk and butter on low heat just until butter is melted.  Add to batter, beat just until combined.
Pour into two greased and floured pans.
Bake at 325 °F until the middle springs back when touched, or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (about 35-40 min) Remove from oven and let stand in pans for 10 minutes. Then turn out onto wire cooling racks and cool completely.
