Modern technology - a great helper
But the modern rhythm of the life of many women often does not give the opportunity to deal with household chores, so to simplify this process, a multivark was invented. This wonderful device can not only fry and boil, but even bake.
You will be able to do other things, while the “assistant” will bake a treat for the whole family. A royal cheesecake in a slow cooker is made with the addition of cocoa. It gives a special chocolate flavor and goes well with the main products. How to cook it? Very simple. For the test, take:
- flour - 1 tbsp .;
- sugar - ½ st .;
- eggs - 2 pcs .;
- sour cream - 1 item;
- butter - 2 tablespoons;
- soda - ½ tsp;
- cocoa - 2 tbsp.
For the filling, besides cottage cheese, sugar, soda and eggs, as in the classic recipe, you need to add 1 tbsp. starch or semolina.
To make it really look like a souffle and a delicate texture, it's worth knowing a few secrets.
- Cottage cheese is better to buy homemade, fat, such that it does not crumble.
- Spend the extra 15 minutes and take the trouble to separate the proteins from the yolks. Beat the yolks with sugar (or powdered sugar) and vanillin, pour into the filling. Beat the whites to stable peaks, add a little lemon juice, and then mix with the curd mass, gently stirring.
To make the dough, beat the eggs with sugar until foaming, add sour cream, soda and melted butter, mix. Pour cocoa and flour, mix thoroughly. The dough should be liquid.
For the filling mix cottage cheese, sugar, eggs and starch (semolina). If it turns out too thick, you can add a few tablespoons of sour cream.
A bowl of multivarki should be oiled and pour the dough there. Gently pour in the middle of the resulting soufflé. In the "Baking" mode, you need to prepare a cheesecake for 1 hour.After the end of time, leave the cake to cool under a closed lid, and after 20 minutes you can enjoy a soft and juicy dessert.
Diversity is always the way to go!
If you have already tried the royal cheesecake with cottage cheese, then try experimenting. In the middle of the pie, you can safely add dried fruits, crushed nuts, fresh fruit (cherry, plum, orange). Such baking with apples will have excellent taste.
To do this, the sweet fruit should be peeled off, finely chopped and put in a uniform layer on the curd filling. Remember to leave some dough to cover the apples.
This wonderful dessert recipe surpasses the usual curd casserole to taste and may well compete with the famous cheesecake. A crisp from the oven or a tender dough in combination with a curd from a multivariate will turn an ordinary tea party into a real feast of culinary delight.
