First of all, Happy New Year Everyone! 🙂
How was your New Year’s Eve? What did you do? What did you eat? Have any resolution?
I wish you a wonderful, healthy and happy year! Here comes the first post of 2015 the New Year Post and Recipes, with 3 delicious recipes!
We had a lazy night, staying at home (our original plan failed, thanks to a few friend of mine…) so I did what usually makes me happy, I prepared food.
The first thing I made is an originally yoghurt cake, become a froyo cake.
750 ml plain yoghurt (greek yoghurt is better!)
200 ml whipping cream (I think you can leave it out, but I’ll try the recipe without it later!)
2 tbsp honey
3 package Gelatine Fix
1 orange zest and a half’s juice
Top: Fruit of your choice and gelatine (optional)
It’s really easy to make, put everything in a large bowl and mix them. Pour the mixture to a cake mold, to decorate the cake, cut your optional fruit (I used peach) put it onto the yoghurt and finish it with gelatin. Originally now the next step would be to put it into the fridge and leave it for several hour, but that never works for me, so I put it into the freezer for a few hours, so it become a Frozen yoghurt cake. It was cool, delicious and light.
The next thing I made was a fruit salad. The last time I ate fruit salad was ages ago, so it was the right time to make one.
1 can peach
1 can pineapple
2 Sharon fruit
Dressing: 0.5 lemon’s juice and zest, 1 tbsp honey
First, drain the peaches and the pineapples. Peal the bananas and the Sharon fruits. Cut everything to smaller pieces. Mix the dressing and pour onto the fruits, stir it carefully, you don’t want to leave any fruit without the dressing, do you? Put the salad into the fridge for an hour or two.
The last thing I made become bigger amount than I wanted, but it’s sinfully delicious. (We still have a few slices of it) It’s a coconut cake.
200 gr coconut flakes
50 gr raisin
3 tbsp honey
200 gr flour
1.5 l milk
250 gr puff pastry
Roll the pastry out to the size of your pan. Pre-heat the oven. Carefully put the pastry into the pan and poke it all over with a fork. Bake it about 10-15 minutes. In the meanwhile in a large saucer pan, mix the coconut, the raisin, the honey and the milk. At first its probably hard to combine the milk with the coconut flakes, but don’t give up, it’ll worth it! Slowly start to cook the mixture in middle heat, when the milk gets warmer, add the flour gradually. Cook it until it become thicker. Pour the coconut cream onto the puff pastry and let it cool for a few hours. As I said before, it’s a big amount. But it’s delicious!
At midnight we drank our glass of champagne, went out and watched the fireworks. A few firecracker attacked me, but apart from this, it was a fine night.
I hope you liked my first recipes in 2015!
