Butter and Raisin Sweet Buns / Slatke pogačice sa maslacem i grožđicama

I realized that I haven’t posted any bread recipes for a really long time and these sweet buns are just the thing to share with you guys. They come together pretty quickly and are a perfect breakfast treat, fresh and hot right out of the oven. You can also easily reheat any leftovers. Just squish a sheet of parchment paper and soak it with water. Wrap the leftover buns in the damp parchment and toss into a hot oven for 10 minutes. Voila, you’ll have your warm and soft buns again!

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 buns / 0.22 EUR per bun / 1.33 EUR for all)

For the dough:

2 cups all-purpose flour (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp active dry yeast (0.13 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

3 tbsp sugar (0.02 EUR)

½ cup raisins (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2/3 cup warm water (–)

4 tbsp butter, melted (0.53 EUR)

Additional:

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp butter, melted and divided (0.27 EUR)

IMGP7357

IMGP7362

METHOD:

In a bowl, whisk together flour, yeast, salt, sugar and raisins. Pour in vanilla, warm water and melted butter, then stir until combined. Turn the dough out on a well-floured surface and knead for about 5-10 minutes, until smooth. Add in a bit more flour as needed, so the dough doesn’t stick to your hands. Clean up the bowl you’ve used for mixing, place the dough ball inside and cover with cling foil. Allow to rest for about 30 minutes in a warm room, until doubled in size.

Once the dough has doubled, gently flatten it out and divide into six even parts. Shape each section into a ball and spread those out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rest for another 20-30 minutes. Set your oven to preheat to 200°C.

When ready to bake, lightly brush each bun with melted butter, saving a tablespoon of butter for later. Bake the buns for 25 minutes, until fragrant and golden. Immediately brush the buns with more butter and allow them to rest for about ten minutes before digging in.

Shvatila sam da već jako dugo nisam objavila nikakav novi recept za kruh, a ova slatka peciva su baš prava stvar. Nije ih teško za pripremiti, a savršena su poslastica za vikend doručak, onako svježa i topla ravno iz pećnice. Ostatke jako lako možete i kasnije podgrijati, i to tako da dobro zgužvate komad papira za pečenje i namočite ga u vodi. Preostala peciva umotajte u takav papir i samo bacite u toplu pećnicu na 10 minuta i eto, opet imate tople i mekane pogačice.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 peciva / 1,66 kn po pecivu / 9,96 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

1 žličica suhog kvasca (1,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

3 žlice šećera (0,15 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (1,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2/3 šalice tople vode (–)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljenog (4,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

2 žlice maslaca, rastopljenog i podijeljenog (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjeli pomiješajte brašno, kvasac, sol, šećer i grožđice. Dodajte vaniliju, toplu vodu i rastopljeni maslac, pa promiješajte da se formira labavo tijesto. Iskrenite sve na dobro pobrašnjenu površinu i mijesite 5-10 minuta, dok tijesto ne bude glatko. Po potrebi nadodajte malo po malo brašna kako vam se tijesto ne bi lijepilo za ruke. Očistite istu posudu koju ste ranije upotrijebili za miješanje, stavite u nju tijesto i pokrijte posudu prijanjajućom folijom. Ostavite da miruje u toploj prostoriji oko 30 minuta, dok se volumen tijesta ne udvostruči.

Kada se tijesto dignulo, nježno ga rukom spljoštite i podijelite u 6 jednakih dijelova. Svaki dio oblikujte u lopticu, pa njih raširite na protvan koji ste obložili papirom za pečenje. Sve pokrijte čistom kuhinjskom krpom i ostavite da miruje još 20-30 minuta. Pećnicu stavite da se grije na 200°C.

Neposredno prije pečenja svaku lopticu lagano premažite rastopljenim maslacem, s time da žlicu maslaca sačuvate za kasnije. Pecite oko 25 minuta, dok pogačice ne budu mirisne i zlatne. Odmah ih vruće premažite sa preostalim maslacem i pustite ih da jedno desetak minuta ohlade prije nego navalite.

Ultimate Carrot and Banana Bread with all the Good Stuff / Ultimativni kruh od mrkve i banane sa svim finim stvarima

I know, I know, there are a ton of banana bread recipes on this blog already. But this one is a winner. It’s loaded with healthy things like bananas, carrots, oats, flax seeds and walnuts. There’s only a tiny bit of sugar in it. And then there is chocolate, which makes it taste like the most decadent treat. But not overwhelmingly decadent. So don’t feel guilty for having a slice or two of this goodness for breakfast. Because that’s, in fact, exactly what you should do. Have this lovely bread for breakfast, brunch, with afternoon coffee, or with anything in between.

Also, a small note for all you lazy people out there. You can do most of the prepping stuff in a food processor, like making oat flour, chopping walnuts, shredding carrots, mashing banana and whisking eggs and yogurt. Yup, I am completely shameless when it comes to minimizing kitchen work. 😀

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a loaf pan with butter and line with baking sheet. Set aside. In a bowl whisk together flours, walnuts, flax seeds, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Mash up bananas in a separate bowl. Whisk in eggs, yogurt and vanilla, then stir in melted butter and shredded carrots. Pour the wet stuff over dry mixture and stir to combine. Finally, fold in raisins and chocolate chunks. Transfer the batter to a prepared pan and even out with a spatula. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the bread comes out clean (a crumb or two are also fine). Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan before removing and slicing.

U drugoj posudi zgnječite banane. Umutite u kašu od banana jaja, jogurt i vaniliju, pa umiješajte rastopljeni maslac i ribanu mrkvu. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i promiješajte da se sve sjedini. Konačno, nježno umiješajte grožđice i čokoladu. Preselite smjesu u pripremljeni kalup i poravnajte špatulom. Pecite 1 sat i 10 minuta dok čačkalica umetnuta u kruh ne bude čista (mrvica – dvije su isto ok). Pustite da se kruh skroz ohladi prije nego ga izvadite iz kalupa i razrežete.

Cheesy Spinach Pouches (vegetarian) / Torbice sa sirom i špinatom (vegetarijanske)

I really liked these cheesy pouches from a while back, so I had to try out a variation with spinach and cheese filling. Let me tell you, these did not disappoint. Just like the initial cheesy pouches, these can be reheated on the following day and will taste just as good.  All you need to do is to loosely wrap them in aluminum foil and pop them in the oven at 200°C for 10-15 minutes.

IMGP6933

IMGP6938

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 20 pouches / 0.12 EUR per pouch / 2.48 EUR for all)

For the filling:

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

Large handful of fresh spinach (0.67 EUR)

2 garlic cloves, minced (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

½ cup cream cheese (0.33 EUR)

For the dough:

2 cups all-purpose flour (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

1 cup cream cheese (0.67 EUR)

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

¼ cup sunflower seed oil (0.10 EUR)

¼ cup sparkling water (0.03 EUR)

For the topping:

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp sesame seeds (0.07 EUR)

Additional:

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

IMGP6935

METHOD:

First prepare the filling by quickly sautéing spinach on olive oil with minced garlic for a minute or two, just until it slightly wilts down. Season with salt and pepper, remove from heat and stir in cream cheese.

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. To assemble the dough, mix together all of the ingredients and knead for about five minutes, until the dough is pliable and smooth. If necessary, add a bit more flour or sparkling water. Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface and cut into large circles. I used a huge mug for this. Re-roll the scraps and repeat until all the dough is used up.

Place a scoop of filling on each circle, lightly brush the edges with water, fold over, seal and tightly press with a fork. Spread the filled pouches on a prepared baking sheet and lightly brush each one with a bit of water. Mix together all of the topping ingredients and lightly sprinkle each pouch. Bake for 30 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Serve warm.

Toliko su mi se svidjele torbice sa šunkom i sirom koje sam smućkala ranije, da sam morala isprobati i varijantu sa špinatom i sirom. Uopće me nisu razočarale, a baš kao i one prije, ovi su snackovi super i dan poslije kada ih podgrijete. Samo ih labavo umotajte u aluminijsku foliju i ubacite u pećnicu zagrijanu na 200°C na 10-15 minuta.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 torbica / 0,92 kn po torbici / 18,43 kn za sve)

Za nadjev:

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg špinata (5,00 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

½ šalice svježeg sira (2,50 kn)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žličice šećera (0,04 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (5,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,75 kn)

¼ šalice gazirane mineralne vode (0,25 kn)

Začini za posipanje:

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žlica sezama (0,50 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Prvo spremite nadjev tako da minutu-dvije kratko prodinstate špinat na maslinovom ulju i sjeckanom češnjaku, samo dok ne povene. Začinite sa solju i paprom, maknite s vatre i umiješajte sir.

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Pomiješajte sve sastojke za tijesto i mijesite oko pet minuta, dok tijesto ne bude glatko i prestane se lijepiti za ruke. Po potrebi, dodajte mrvicu brašna ili mineralne vode. Razvaljajte tijesto na dobro pobrašnjenoj radnoj plohi i režite u velike krugove. Ja sam kao kalup upotrijebila ogromnu šalicu. Ponovno umijesite i razvaljajte ostatke tijesta i izrežite još krugova dok ne iskoristite svo tijesto.

Na svaki krug stavite malo nadjeva, premažite rubove vodom, presavinite i rubove dobro pritisnite vilicom. Nadjevene torbice raširite po pripremljenom protvanu pa svaku lagano premažite sa malo vode. Izmiješajte sve začine i posipajte po torbicama. Pecite oko 30 minuta, dok ne budu hrskave i zlatno-smeđe. Poslužite toplo.

Mushroom Phyllo Rolls (vegetarian) / Burekići s gljivama (vegetarijanski)

I’ve been meaning to produce some handmade phyllo dough for ages, but felt super intimidated because it all seemed like an insanely laborious task. Well, I was wrong. The dough came together super quickly and was unbelievably tasty. I’ve been expecting to spend hours in the kitchen, but when it all came together I was like: “Wow, so this is it?!” And the taste?! It was AMAZING! I’m already thinking of making a batch with potatoes.

IMGP7097

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 rolls / 0.23 EUR per roll / 1.36 EUR for all)

For the dough:

2 cups all-purpose flour (0.13 EUR)

1 ½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.04 EUR)

¾ cup lukewarm water (–)

2 tbsp butter, softened at room temperature (0.27 EUR)

For the mushroom filling:

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

6-8 medium Portobello mushrooms (0.60 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

3 tbsp sour cream (0.20 EUR)

IMGP7106

IMGP7107

METHOD:

Make the dough by mixing together one cup of flour, salt, oil and water. When everything is uniform, gradually start adding the remaining flour and knead the dough until it becomes smooth and will no longer stick to your hands. Tightly wrap in cling foil and leave to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes knead the dough once more and divide into 6 parts and form them into balls. Place a small piece of butter on each dough ball and gently massage it around the dough. You don’t want the butter penetrating the dough at this point, but rather you want the balls coated on all sides. Leave the dough to rest uncovered, again at room temperature, but this time for 30 minutes.

While the dough is resting prepare the filling by finely dicing onion and mushrooms. Mix with salt, pepper and sour cream and set aside. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Using your hands, flatten the dough and gently pull it, starting from the center towards the edges and forming it into a thin and nearly transparent sheet. The thinner the dough, the tastier the rolls will be. All the resting and the fats will make the dough super elastic, so it won’t break that easily. If you want, you can cut out and discard the thicker edges, but I decided to keep them as they turned out super crunchy. Sprinkle about two tablespoons of mushroom filling on a single dough sheet, roll the dough into a sausage and then wrap it around itself to shape into a roll. Place on a prepared baking tray and repeat with the remaining dough and filling.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Serve warm, with a nice big salad and a glass of cold yogurt. These keep fairly well and will taste just as good on the second day, if stored in an airtight container in the meantime and reheated just before serving.

Već duže vremena namjeravam napraviti svoje kore za burek, ali mi se taj pothvat uvijek činio kao nešto zastrašujuće koji zahtijeva ogromnu količinu posla. E pa ispalo je da sam bila u krivu. Tijesto je zapravo gotovo za čas i ispalo je super fino. Očekivala sam da ću u kuhinji provesti par sati, ali onda kada sam sve zgotovila mislila sam si: „Ha? To je to?!“ A tek okus?! Bio je FANTASTIČAN! I već sada smišljam da napravim rundu sa krumpirom.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 burekića / 1,68 kn po bureku / 10,08 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

1 ½ žličica soli (0,02 kn)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,30 kn)

¾ šalice mlake vode (–)

2 žlice maslaca, omekšanog na sobnoj temperaturi (2,00 kn)

Za nadjev od gljiva:

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

6-8 srednjih šampinjona (4,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sveže mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

3 žlice kiselog vrhnja (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Napravite tijesto tako da pomiješate šalicu brašna sa soli, uljem i vodom. Kada se sve sjedini, postepeno dodajte preostalo brašno, a tijesto mijesite sve dok ne bude glatko i prestane vam se lijepiti za ruke. Tijesto dobro zamojtate u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite da odmara na sobnoj temperaturi oko 20 minuta.

Nakon 20 minuta još jednom promijesite tijesto i podijelite ga na 6 jednakih dijelova od kojih formirajte loptice. Na svaku lopticu stavite komadić maslaca, pa ga nježno rukama promasirajte po tijestu. Ne morate ići za time da maslac uđe u tijesto, već želite samo da je loptica sa svih strana dobro namašćena. Ostavite da tijesto miruje nepokriveno, ponovo na sobnoj temperaturi, ali ovoga puta 30 minuta.

Dok tijesto odmara pripremite nadjev. Sitno nasjeckate luk i gljive, te ih pomiješajte sa soli, paprom i kiselim vrhnjem. Stavite na stranu. Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje.

Rukama spljoštite lopticu tijesta pa ju nježno razvucite, krečući od sredine prema rubovima, sve dok ne dobijete tanku i gotovo prozirnu plahtu. Što je tijesto tanje, to će burek biti finiji, no zbog odmaranja i masnoće tijesto će biti elastično i neće baš tako lako pucati. Po želji možete odrezati debele rubove, no ja sam ih odlučila ostaviti i ispali su super hrskavi. Oko dvije žlice nadjeva rasporedite po razvučenom tijesti, pa zarolajte u kobasicu. Omotajte tijesto samo oko sebe u oblik puža. Stavite burekić na pripremljeni protvan i ponavljajte sa preostalim tijestom i nadjevom.

Pecite oko 40-45 minuta, dok burekići ne postanu hrskavi i zlatno smeđi. Poslužite toplo, sa velikom salatom i možda čašom hladnog jogurta. Burekići mogu držati i drugi dan ako ih čuvate hermetički zatvorene, a prije posluživanja zagrijete.

No-knead Seedy Oat Bread / Kruh sa sjemenkama i zobi koji se ne mijesi

I haven’t posted any bread recipes in a while, which is odd because I bake bread two to three times a month. So here’s the recent loaf that I’ve made which I really liked. I left it to ferment for a whole day and it gave yielded a fantastic flavor. The dough had a super strong fermented smell, almost like booze, but don’t worry about it, because the bread tastes excellent.

As always, I used a heavy cast iron lidded pot for baking the bread, but any heavy lidded, oven-safe dish will do.

IMGP7011

IMGP7017

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 loaf / 1.07 EUR)

For the dough:

1 cup oat flour (0.20 EUR)

1 cup whole wheat flour (0.10 EUR)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

½ cup rolled oats (0.10 EUR)

4 tbsp sunflower seeds (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp pumpkin seeds (0.27 EUR)

¼ tsp active dry yeast (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 ½ cups warm water (–)

Additional:

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7015

IMGP7012

METHOD:

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, yeast, salt and sugar. Pour warm water on top and give a good stir so all the flour is fully incorporated. Cover the bowl with cling foil and leave to rest in a warm room for 24 hours so the dough can ferment and puff up.

The next day, place a heavy lidded oven-safe dish to the oven and preheat to 220°C. This is gonna take about 30 minutes, so while the oven and the dish get toasty, prepare the dough for the second rise. Dump the dough on a well-floured counter, fold over with a scraper a couple of times and shape into a ball. Transfer the dough to a bowl lined with parchment paper, similar in shape and size to the dish you’re going to use for baking. Cover with clean tea towel and leave to rise for a second time for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, and once the oven and the heavy pot are thoroughly preheated, carefully transfer the dough together with parchment paper into the hot pot and bake covered for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, uncover and bake for additional 15 minutes to get that lovely crust. Once the bread is done, transfer to a wire rack and allow it to cool completely before slicing.

Već jako dugo nisam objavila nikakav recept za kruh, što je čudno s obzirom da pečem kruh barem dva do tri puta mjesečno. Evo recept za štrucu koju sam nedavno napravila, a jako mi se svidjela. Ovoga sam puta ostavila da tijesto fermentira 24 sata, a rezultat je bio fantastičan okus. Sirovo tijesto je imalo dosta intenzivan fermentirani miris, skoro kao po nekom alkoholnom piću, ali nemojte da vas to brine jer je kruh sam po sebi kasnije ispao super.

Kao i uvijek, kruh sam pekla u teškom željeznom loncu s poklopcem, ali možete koristiti bilo kakvu tešku posudu koja ima poklopac i smije u pećnicu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 štrucu / 7,81 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 šalica integralnog pšeničnog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

½ šalice zobenih pahuljica (0,75 kn)

4 žlice suncokretovih sjemenki (2,00 kn)

4 žlice bučinih sjemenki (2,00 kn)

¼ žličice suhog kvasca (0,25 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

1 ½ šalice tople vode (–)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U velikoj zdjeli skupa pomiješajte brašna, zobene pahuljice, suncokretove i bučine sjemenke, kvasac, sol i šećer. Izlijte preko svega toplu vodu i dobro promiješajte da se svo brašno inkorporira. Pokrijte zdjelu prijanjajućom folijom i ostavite 24 sata u toploj prostoriji, da tijesto fermentira i nabubri.

Sljedećeg dana stavite tešku posudu sa poklopcem u pećnicu da se sve skupa zagrije na 220°C. Za to će trebati oko 30 minuta, pa za to vrijeme ujedno priredite i tijesto za drugo dizanje. Iskrenite tijesto na dobro pobrašnjenu radnu plohu te ga strugalicom nekoliko puta presavinite i oblikujte u kuglu. Preselite tijesto u posudu koja veličinom i oblikom odgovara onoj u kojoj ćete peći kruh, a koju ste obložili papirom za pečenje. Pokrijte čistom kuhinjskom krpom i pustite da miruje 30 minuta i da se diže drugi puta.

Nakon 30 minuta, kada su se pećnica i posuda dobro ugrijale, pažljivo preselite tijesto skupa sa papirom za pečenje u vruću posudu. Poklopite i stavite peći na 30 minuta. Nakon 30 minuta otklopite i pecite još 15 minuta da se napravi lijepa korica. Kada je kruh gotov preselite ga na rešetku da se skroz ohladi prije nego ga krenete rezati.

I know what you’re thinking – we’ve just stepped out of the holiday season three seconds ago, so what is this crazy woman thinking by posting a cake recipe?! But this is more a bread than it is a cake and it’s actually on quite a healthy side of the spectrum, too. So you’re allowed – encouraged, even – to munch on this goodness for breakfast. And since plopping a bunch of batter in a bread tin makes for the easiest baking endeavor, you’ll be securing a breakfast for quite a few days in just a few minutes.

Have I already convinced you to try out this recipe? I sure hope so, because this bread is not only easy and simple to make, it’s also delicious.

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a bread pan with butter, coat with parchment paper and set aside. If you don’t have any oat flour – fear not. Just pulse regular rolled oats in a food processor to desired consistency. Remove the oat flour, then use the same food processor to chop up walnuts and shred your carrots. We’re taking the lazy route. 😉

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, walnuts, flax seeds, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs with yogurt and vanilla. Stir in melted butter and shredded carrots until well incorporated. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry mix and stir until just combined. Fold in the raisins and transfer the batter to a prepared bread pan and even out with a spatula.

Bake for 1 hour, until skewer inserted in the bread comes out clean (a crumb or two are also quite alright). Leave the bread to cool completely in its pan before removing and slicing. This bread will keep for up to five days if stored in an airtight container and refrigerated and it also freezes great.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 štrucu / 29,17 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 šalica integralnog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 šalica sjeckanih oraha (7,50 kn)

½ šalice mljevenih sjemenki lana (2,00 kn)

½ šalice smeđeg šećera (1,50 kn)

1 šalica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica jogurta (2,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

2 šalice ribane mrkve (2,50 kn)

1 šalica grožđica (3,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti kalup (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Maslacem namastite kalup za kruh, obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Ne brinite ako nemate zobenog brašna. Samo propulsirajte obične zobene pahuljice u multipraktiku do željenje konzistencije. Taj isti multipraktik iskoristite i za sjeckanje oraha i ribanje mrkve. Idemo lijenom rutom. 😉

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte oba brašna, orahe, lan, šećer, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol. U drugoj zdjeli razmutite jaja sa jogurtom i vanilijom. Umiješajte rastopljeni maslac i ribane mrkve da se sjedine. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i miješajte samo onoliko koliko treba da smjesa bude jednolična. Na kraju nježno umiješajte grožđice i preselite smjesu u pripremljeni kalup, te poravnajte špatulom.

Pecite 1 sat, dok štapić upiknut u kruh ne bude čist (mrvica – dvije su isto u redu). Ostavite da se kruh skroz ohladi prije nego što ga maknete iz kalupa i razrežete. Kruh će držati do pet dana u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u hladnjaku, a također se i super smrzava.

Cheesy Pouches / Torbice sa sirom

As usual, I had some random leftovers lying around the house, which coincidentally included some cream cheese. A little snooping around the internet confirmed my beliefs that you can actually make dough with cream cheese and that you don’t have to use yeast. This means that there is no proofing and that the dough can be whipped up in no time.

Also, another great thing about these puppies is that they are actually super tasty on the following and even on their third day. All you need to do is wrap them loosely up in aluminum foil and pop them into the oven for 10-15 minutes to warm up. They come out juicy and moist, tasting just like they were freshly baked. Naturally, these pouches are also pretty addictive so you probably won’t have any leftovers to begin with. 😀

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. To assemble the dough, mix together all of the ingredients and knead for about five minutes, until the dough is pliable and smooth. If necessary, add a bit more flour or milk. Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface and cut into large circles. I used a huge mug for this. Re-roll the scraps and repeat until all the dough is used up.

To make the filling, finely dice everything up and stir all of the ingredients together. Place a teaspoon of filling on each dough circle, then fold the dough over and seal the edges. To secure that nothing leaks out, you can press down the edges with a fork.

Spread the pouches on prepared baking sheet and lightly brush each one with a bit of water. Mix together all the seasoning ingredients and lightly sprinkle each pouch.

Bake for 30 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Serve the pouches warm, as a fancy breakfast or delicious snack.

Kao i obično, imala sam doma dosta nekakvih ostataka koji su mi se povlačili, a među njima se našlo i nešto svježeg sira. Nakon malo kopanja po internetu potvrdila sam svoju sumnju da se tijesto može napraviti i od sira te da ga se ne mora raditi sa kvascem. To znači da nema dizanja, a samo tijesto možete smutiti za čas.

Također, još jedna super stvar kod ovih torbica je da su izvrsne i drugi, pa čak i treći dan. Samo ih labavo umotajte u aluminijsku foliju i ubacite u pećnicu na 10 do 15 minuta da se ugriju. Biti će sočne i fine, baš kao da su upravo pečene. Naravno, ovi mali paketići izazivaju takvu ovisnost da vam ionako vjerovatno ništa neće ostati za kasnije. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 torbica sa sirom / 1,19 kn po torbici / 23,76 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

½ šalice kukuruznog brašna (0,40 kn)

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

2 žličice praška za pecivo (0,20 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žličice šećera (0,04 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (5,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,75 kn)

¼ šalice mlijeka (0,50 kn)

Za nadjev:

2 šnite pršuta (5,00 kn)

3 šnite šunke (3,50 kn)

5 šnita sira (3,50 kn)

2 žlice svježeg sira (1,00 kn)

1 žličica vode (–)

Za posipanje:

Voda (–)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žličica kima (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sezama (0,50 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećniocu na 180°C. Obložite protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Pomiješajte sve sastojke za tijesto i mijesite oko pet minuta, da tijesto bude glatko i da se ne lijepi. Po potrebi, dodajte mrvicu više brašna ili mlijeka. Tijesto razvaljajte na dobro pobrašnjenoj plohi i izrežite u velike krugove. Ja sam kao kalup upotrijebila veliku šalicu. Ponovno umijesite i razvaljajte ostatke tijesta i ponovite dok sve ne potrošite.

Da napravite nadjev, nasjeckajte sve na male kockice i pomiješajte sve sastojke. Na svaki krug tijesta stavite po žličicu nadjeva, pa preklopite tijesto na pola i stisnite skupa rubove. Kako ništa ne bi iscurilo, dodatno vilicom utisnite spojeve.

Raširite torbice po pripremljenom protvanu i lagano svaki paketić premažite sa malo vode. Pomiješajte skupa sol, papar, kim i sezam pa tom smjesom posipajte svaku torbicu.

Pecite 30 minuta, dok tijesto ne bude hrskavo i zlatno. Poslužite toplo, kao fensi doručak ili kao ukusni snack.
