Low fat / calorie Apple Strudel



For those who are trying to loose weight (like me), but still want to have something sweet here and there. The whole strudel is worth 40 weight watcher's (old) points, so if divided in 10  large servings it carries 4 points each, or 2 points each for 20 small serves. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
Dough-
1 1/2 cups flour
1 egg, beaten  + water to make up 150 ml of fluid
2 tbs oil (for spreading)
Filling-
5 apples
1/2 cup sugar
50 g butter
1/2 cup bread crumbs
cinnamon

Method:
For making and stretching dough, see Apple Strudel recipe
Filling-
Melt butter in a pan, add breadcrumbs and fry for a minute. Set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 180*C (160 fan forced), grease a large baking tin.
When dough ready (stretched), mix all ingredients for filling and place along one side of pastry. Roll the filling (with help of tablecloth) to the other side, making sure to fold sides of pastry, so filling doesn't come out during baking.
Place strudel onto baking tin (shape into semicircle if doesn't fit), brush with beaten egg and bake for 40 minutes.
Dust with icing sugar and serve.

I had a memorable day yesterday. I got a surprise package in my mailbox; my dear friend Sonja (from Slovenia) made a few things with her hands and sent it to me....20 000 km away! She made me cry and she made my day! Two of her amazing cards, beautifully smelling lavanda wreath, and dried WILD STRAWBERRIES from Slovenian forests. 
Thank you Sonja, you will never know what that meant to me.
Following recipe is from a cookbook, that she sent me some time ago. I make it often, as it is quick,  delicious and healthy.

seeds of your choice for sprinkling on top (optional)

Beat seasoned  eggs, add flour and mineral water. Pour into the tin, sprinkle with seeds and bake 8-10 minutes, lower temperature to 180 *C and bake for another 10-12 minutes. Serve warm or cold (with avocado, cheese, ham, tomato..)

Apple crumble pie



One of my favourite TV chefs is Nigella. I like her 'normal', everyday recipes and the fact that she is willing to share with you her little domestic secrets. The way she speaks about certain food ('beautiful brown dust' - cocoa, 'little pale curls' - grated parmesan,...) shows off her poetic passion for food. What drives me crazy is constant zooming in on her face and hands and blurring out her figure...but, that might change soon, as she lost some weight recently.
Following recipe is adapted from Nigella's famous Apple Crumble...I just added a pie crust / shell.

Ingredients:
Crust-
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, cold pieces
1 tsp sugar
pinch of salt
1-2 tbs cold water
Apple filling-
3-4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
3 tbs sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Crumble-
90 g flour
3 tbs sugar
110 g butter, cold pieces

Method:
Mix dry ingredients and butter; rub them with your fingertips (or use processor) add water and knead slightly. Let it rest in the fridge (glad-wrapped).
Preheat oven to 180*C (fan-forced) or 190*C.
Take the dough out and roll into a circle that will cover your pie dish. Prick with fork.
Place apple pieces on bottom, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Rub flour, sugar  and butter until large crumbles form. Cover your apple pieces and bake for 10 minutes; lower temperature to 170 (180)*C and bake for another 20 minutes. Serve warm or cold.



Pita sa Jabukama i Mrvicastom Koricom

Jedan od meni najdrazih TV kuhara je Nigella. Svidja mi se da pokazuje svakidasnje , normalne recepte i cinjenica da cesto dijeli svoje domace tajne. Nacin kako govori o hrani ('divna braon prasina' - kakao, ' mali blijedi uvojci' - rendani parmezan...) pokazuje njenu poeticnu zaljubljenost u hranu. Sta me dovodi do ludila je konstantno zumiranje njenog lica i ruku i zamagljivanje njene figure. ali i to bi se uskoro moglo promijeniti, obzirom da je dosta kilaze skinula u posljednje vrijeme. 
Sljedeci recept je adaptiran od njenod deserta 'Apple Crumble'; samo sam dodala 'dno' od prhkog tijesta.

Potrebno:
Podloga-
1 1/4 solje brasna
1/2 solje maslaca, hladni komadici
1 k secera
prstohvat soli
1-2 K hladne vode
Punjenje od Jabuka-
3-4 zelene jabuke, oguljene i isjecene
3 K secera
1 k cimeta
Mrvicasta povrsina-
90 gr brasna
3 K secera
110 gr maslaca, hladnog u komadicima
Nacin:
Umijesite tijesto, trljajuci sastojke zatim dodajte vodu; ovo mozete uciniti vrhovima prstiju ili uz pomoc sjeckalice. Zamotajte i ostavite u frizider.
Ukljucite rernu na 190*C; pripremite posudu za pite.
Razvaljajte tijesto u krug i postavite na posudu; izbockajte viljuskom.
Postavite komade jabuka preko, pospite secerom i cimetom.
Istrljajte brasno, secer i maslac dok nedobijete krupnije mrve. Postavite to preko jabuka i pecite 10 minuta. Smanjite temperaturu na 180 *C pa pecite jos 20-ak minuta. Servirajte toplo ili hladno.

Italian Rye Bread



Most of my time last week, I spent building my new blog. Hopefully, it's going to support my new  business. I have registered my name (CaKing Agent) and got ABN; only visit from my council is left to give it final 'green light'. 
'Till then, here is an Italian recipe for rye bread; (reminds of my favourite 'Bauernbrot').

Ingredients:
3 cups rye flour
2 cups bread (white) flour
2 tsp yeast, instant (or 30 g fresh)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 1/4 cups water ( 300 ml)
2 tbs olive oil (or lard)
1 tbs fennel seeds
1 tsp caraway seeds

Method:
Activate yeast with some warm water, sugar and a little flour. Mix in all other ingredients (except seeds) and knead for 10 minutes. Add seeds and knead in.  Let it rest in warm spot (covered). All this can be done in a bread maker.
Punch the dough down, shape into a loaf and place onto a tin. Cover and let it rest for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 200*C. Place tin in hot oven, place 3-4 ice cubes on bottom and close the door. Bake for 5-10 minutes, then lower temperature to 180*C and bake for another 35+ minutes. Take out, wrap in a clean tea towel and let it cool.


Italijanski Ražani Kruh

Vecinu vremena prosle sedmice sam provela u izgradnji novog bloga. Ta nova web adresa ce, nadam se, potpomoci razvoju mog novog biznisa. Registovala sam novo ime (CaKing Agent - 'Kolačarski Agent'), dobila odredjeni biznis broj i samo je jos preostala posjeta iz moje lokalne opstine da bi dobila konacno 'zeleno svjetlo'.
Do tad', evo jednog Italijanskog recepta za razani hljeb ;(podsjeca na meni najdrazi 'Bauernbrot').

Potrebno:
3 solje razanog brasna
2 solje bijelog brasna
2 k instant kvasca (ili 30 gr svjezeg)
2 k soli
1 k secera
1 1/4 solje vode, mlake (300 ml)
2 K maslinovog ulja (ili masti)
1 K sjemena komoraca
1 k karavaj sjemenki (?) 
(Translator je pokazao kim, ali bih ipak rekla da je nesto drugo)

Nacin:
Aktivirajte kvasac sa malo brasna, secera i vode. Ubacite sve sastojke (osim sjemenki) u vecu posudu i umijesite. Na kraju dodajte i sjemenke, izradite jos malo i ostavite pokriveno na toplo mjesto oko 1 sat +.  Sve ovo mozete uciniti i pomocu pekaca. Premijesite hljeb, oblikujte veknu i postavite na pleh. Ostavite nadolaziti oko pola sata.
Ukljucite rernu na 200 *C. Postavite pleh u rernu, na dno bacite 3-4 kocke leda i zatvorite. Pecite 5-10 minuta , smanjite temperaturu na 180*C pa pecite jos 35+ minuta. Izvadite i zamotajte u cistu krpu da se prohladi.
