Blueberry Cocoa Marble Cake / Mramorni kolač od borovnica i kakaa

I’m working towards clearing up our freezer and in such endeavour excavated a bit of frozen blueberries which we had left over. It was a too small of an amount to bake into a proper cake, but at the same time too large of an amount to use in a serving or two of oatmeal. I pondered about it a little and decided to whip up a marble cake. The amount of fruits was just right for half of the batter and the end result not only tasted fantastic, but also looked quite pretty.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a loaf pan with butter and line it with parchment paper. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk eggs together with salt, vanilla and milk. Whisk in melted butter and sugar. Add in two cups of flour and baking powder. Stir until just combined, then divide the mixture evenly between two bowls.

Stir in the remaining tablespoon of flour into one half of the mixture and gently fold in frozen blueberries. Stir a tablespoon of cocoa powder into the bowl with the other half of the mixture. Take your prepared pan and dollop the blueberry and cocoa mixtures in interchangeable pattern. Use a butter knife and swirl the mixtures into each other, shake to even out and bake for 35 minutes, until the cake is puffed up and crispy and a skewer inserted comes out clean (a crumb or two are also alright). Allow the cake to cool for about 5 minutes in its tin before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cake is completely cool prepare the frosting. Melt the butter, then stir in milk and sugar. Continue stirring until the sugar completely dissolves, then mix in the cocoa powder. Transfer the frosting into a piping bag and drizzle over the cake. Allow the frosting to firm up before cutting the cake and serving it.

Trenutno radim na tome da nam raskrčim zamrzivač te sam u tom pothvatu iskopala i malo smrznutih borovnica. Količina koju smo imali je bila premala za neki pošteni kolač, a s druge strane prevelika za ubaciti u porciju ili dvije zobene kaše. Mozgala sam što bih s njima, kada mi je sinulo da mogu napraviti mramorni kolač. Ta količina smrznutog voća je taman bila dostatna za pola smjese, a konačni rezultat ne samo da je bio jako ukusan, već i vizualno primamljiv.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 kolač / 25,64 kn)

Za smjesu:

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

1 šalica mlijeka (1,50 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

5 žlica šećera (0,50 kn)

2 šalice + 1 žlica glatkog brašna, podijeljene (1,15 kn)

1 i ½ žličica praška za pecivo (0,15 kn)

1 žlica sirovog kakao praha (1,00 kn)

1 šalica smrznutih borovnica (10,00 kn)

Za glazuru:

2 žlice maslaca (2,00 kn)

1 žličica mlijeka (0,03 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,10 kn)

1 žlica sirovog kakao praha (1,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti kalupe (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Maslacem lagano premažite kalup za kruh i obložite ga papirom za pečenje. Stavite na stranu. U zdjeli razmutite jaja sa soli, vanilijom i mlijekom. Umutite unutra rastopljeni maslac i šećer. Ubacite dvije šalice brašna i prašak za pecivo, pa promiješajte tek toliko da se sve sjedini. Podijelite smjesu na pola u dvije zdjele.

U polovicu smjese umiješajte preostalu žlicu brašna pa nježno umiješajte i smrznute borovnice. U drugu polovice smjese umiješajte kakao. Uzmite kalup koji ste priredili te u njega naizmjenice dodajte smjesu sa borovnicama i kakaom. Uzmite nož za mazanje, pa njime još malo promiješajte smjese u kalupu da jedna uđe u drugu. Nježno protresite kalup da se sve poravna i stavite peći. Pecite kolač 35 minuta, dok ne bude nabubren i hrskav po površini i dok testna čačkalica ne bude čista (mrvica-dvije su isto ok). Pustite da se kolač 5 minuta ohladi u kalupu prije nego ga izvadite i stavite na rešetku kako bi se ohladio do kraja.

Kada je kolač skroz hladan priredite glazuru. Rastopite maslac i umiješajte u njega mlijeko i šećer. Miješajte tako dugo dok se šećer skroz ne rastopi pa onda umiješajte i kakao. Preselite u vrećicu za ukrašavanje i prošarajte po kolaču. Pustite da se glazura stisne prije nego krenete rezati kolač i poslužite ga.
