We have been extremely well fed this week in 4th class. Throughout the week the children brought in samples of their own baking. We have enjoyed pizza, cakes, brownies, peppermint sweets, muffins, strudel, cup cakes, aloo pakora, cookies. Today I enjoyed hearing about other aspects of project homework which included patterns designed for maths, excellent book reviews, studies of countries including Romania, Spain, Ireland and Poland. Well done everyone and have a lovely break. ...
What a fantastic day of sharing food from all over the world! Thank you to all the cooks, chefs and bakers for the delicious food. A recipe book went home in children's bags earlier this week if you want to recreate any dishes. What was your favourite? ...
Thanks also to Marta for sending on this recipe: Drożdżówki
500g wheat flour
2 tbsp sugar
40g fresh yeast or around 11-12g dry yeast
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
1 large, copy spoon of butter or margarine
300g of full-fat cottage cheese (or semi-fat) – (twaróg - available in Polish shops, if you get the one sold in buckets, there's no need to grind it)
A method of preparing:
Prepare the dough. Melt butter or margarine. Set aside.
Mix slightly warm milk with 2 tablespoons of sugar, crushed yeast and a few tablespoons of flour. Cover with a cloth and set aside in a warm place to rise for about 10-15 minutes.
Pour the rest of the 500g flour into a large bowl. Add vanilla sugar, eggs and sprouted leaven (yeast mixture). Start kneading the dough. When kneading, add liquid fat and knead the dough. Then cover with a cloth and set aside in a warm place to rise (about 30 minutes).
At this time, prepare the filling. Curd grind twice. You can also blend it sligthly. Mix the soft butter with sugar and yolks to a fluffy mass. Continue mixing, and add the cheese gradually.
When the dough doubles its volume, transfer it to the top sprinkled with flour and roll out to a thickness of approx. 1.5-2 cm. Cut out circles from the dough (e.g. a glass or mug) with a diameter of 8 cm. (Dough remaining after cutting the circles, knead again and cut out further rings).
Arrange the rings at intervals on two baking sheets lined with baking paper. Leave for 15 minutes to rise. As they grow older, make a depression in the center of each disc by pushing the bottom of the smaller glass firmly. (For me, the bottom of the glass was 5cm in diameter). Fill the cavity with cheese filling.
Brush the dough with a spread egg. (Cheese should not be lubricated).
Bake in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes at 180 ° C. (I baked one tray after another).
Tip: you can add raisins or fried orange peel to the cheese or mix it with some cinnamon.
