I just recently discovered the joy of using mascarpone cheese for dishes other than desserts and now I wonder just what took me so long.

Punem faina intr-un bol, adaugam putin lapte cald si drojdia. Lasam 10 minute sa se umfle.

Put the flour in a bowl, add some warm milk and yeast. We spent 10 minutes swelling.



Adaugam tot laptele, oul, esentele si untul.

Add all the milk, egg, essence and butter.



Framantam pana obtinem un aluat care nu se lipseste pe maini. Daca este necesar, mai adaugam faina.

Knead to obtain a dough that does not stick to hands. If necessary, add the flour.

Lasam la dospit o ora la loc cald.
We leave to rise for an hour in a warm place.

Intindem o foaie groasa de aprox 5- 6 cm si decupam gogosile cu un pahar.
Stretch a sheet of about 5 to 6 cm thick and cut donuts with a glass.

Le punem intr-o tava si le lasam la dospit aprox 15-20 minute.Le coacem la foc potrivit pana se rumenesc - 20 minute.
Put them in a tray and leave them for about 15-20 minutes.Bake  them at medium heat until crisp - 20 minutes.

We add the decorations and we can serve them. These donuts can also be cooked in hot oil, but they are more 'healthy' in the oven.

Scrub the potatoes clean and cook in a large saucepan with plenty of boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and leae to cool slightly. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel and finely slice them.

Heat the vegetable oil ad shallow fry the potatoes in two batches until crisp.


Ceapa o taiem julien si o calim in unt pana devine aurie.

25. Crema de oua la cuptor / Egg cream in the oven - Jun 9, 2018 10:17:00 AM

Ingrediente / ingredients:

- unt pentru uns forma de copt - butter to grease the baking form
- 1100 ml lapte - 1100 ml of milk
- 8 oua - 8 eggs
- 150 g zahar brun - 150 g of brown sugar
- esenta de vanilie - vanilla essence

Avem nevoie de 2 forme pentru cuptor. Una mare in care sa intre una mai mica. Ungem forma mai mica cu unt si o introducem in forma mai mare.

We need two forms for the oven. One big and a smaller one. Grease the smaller form with butter and put it in larger form.


Mixam ouale cu zaharul si esenta de vanilie. Incalzim laptele (sa nu fiarba) si il turnam treptat peste oua, amestecand continuu. Crema o turnam in forma unsa cu unt dupa ce o strecuram.

We mix eggs with sugar and vanilla essence. Heat the milk (do not boil) and gradually pour it over the eggs, stirring continuously.The cream is poured in butter-shaped form.


Introducem forma in cuptor, turnam apa rece in forma mai mare si o lasam la copt aprox o ora si jumatate.

Put the shape in the oven, pour cold water into the larger form and leave it to bake for about an hour and a half.


Se serveste calda dar este foarte buna si rece. Eu am presarat putin ness deasupra dar puteti adauga cacao, cocos, ciocolata, etc.

You can  served it warm but is very good cold too. I have sprinkled a little ness on top but you can add cocoa, coconut, chocolate, etc.

Bon appetit!
