Whole Lemon Squares / Kocke od cijelog limuna

Are you a lazy person when it comes to cooking? Me too!!! (If your answer was a decisive ‘No!’, what are you even doing on this blog?! Rather go make some Beef Wellington and have us all over for a spectacular dinner!)

Anyhow, as I was saying, this is a perfect desert for all you lazy people out there. I also went one step ahead and used store-bought frozen puff pastry. I know, I know. I will most likely suffer for my blasphemous ways, but I have zero regrets.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 20 squares / 0.18 EUR per square / 3.55 EUR for all)

500 grams store-bought frozen puff pastry, thawed (1.00 EUR)

For the lemon cream:

1 whole small organic lemon (0.20 EUR)

4 eggs (0.80 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

1 cup crème fraiche (0.67 EUR)

5 tbsp butter, softened at room temperature (0.67 EUR)

1 cup sugar (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp all-purpose flour (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Additional:

Butter for greasing the pan (0.07 EUR)

Flour for dusting (0.01 EUR)

Powdered sugar for serving (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7784

IMGP7789

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 175°C. Butter a square baking pan and line it with parchment paper. Generously dust your work surface and rolling pin with flour then roll out the pastry into a shape of your pan. Transfer the dough into the pan and set aside.

Give the lemon a good wash, making sure that you get any wax off. Be sure to use an organic, chemically untreated lemon, as the pesticides make the skin inedible. Trim and discard the top and bottom off the lemon, then cut the whole lemon into chunks. Pick through and discard any seeds. Add the whole lemon to a food processor with the rest of the ingredients and pulse until smooth. You can strain the mixture to get rid of any chunky bits, but I decided that it wasn’t necessary. (Remember? I’m lazy.) Pour the mix over the dough and bake for 35-45 minutes, until firmed up and slightly crispy on top.

Allow the cake to cool completely in its pan before cutting into squares and serving. Serve at room temperature or chilled, dusted with powdered sugar.

Jeste li lijeni za kuhanje? I ja isto!!! (Ako je vaš odgovor decidirano ‘Ne!’, što uopće radite na ovom blogu?! Radije pripremite biftek Wellington i sve nas pozovite k sebi na spektakularnu gozbu!)

Uglavnom, kao što sam govorila, ovo je idealan desert za sve vas lijene ljude. Ja sam u svemu tome otišla korak dalje i uzela kupovno lisnato tijesto. Znam, znam, čeka me patnja za ovu herezu. Ali ne kajem se.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 kocaka / 1,35 kn po kocki / 27,01 kn za sve)

500 g kupovnog lisnatog tijesta, odmrznutog (7,50 kn)

Za kremu od limuna:

1 cijeli mali domaći limun (1,50 kn)

4 jaja (6,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

1 šalica milerama (5,00 kn)

5 žlica maslaca, omekšanog na sobnoj temperaturi (5,00 kn)

1 šalica šećera (1,00 kn)

2 žlice glatkog brašna (0,10 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti protvan (0,50 kn)

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

Šećer u prahu za posluživanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C. Namastite pravokutni protvan i obložite ga papirom za pečenje. Dobro pobrašnite radnu plohu i valjak za tijesto, pa razvaljajte lisnato u oblik protvana. Preselite tijesto u protvan i stavite na stranu.

Dobro operite limun, pazeći da sa njega skinete eventualni vosak. Za ovaj recept upotrijebite samo domaće nešpricane limune, pošto pesticidi čine koru nejestivom. Odrežite i bacite krajeve limuna, pa ostatak limuna onda narežite na komadiće i očistite od koštica. Cijeli limun ubacite u multipraktik sa preostalim sastojcima za kremu, te pulsirajte dok sve ne bude glatko. Kremu možete procijediti ako vam smetaju eventualne grudice, ali ja sam zaključila da to nije potrebno. (Khm, lijenost, sjećate se?) Kremu izlijte preko tijesta i sve pecite 35-45 minuta, dok se krema ne stisne i blago ne zahrska.

Pustite da se kolač skroz ohladi u protvanu prije nego ga narežete na kocke i poslužite. Kolač poslužite na sobnoj temperaturi ili ohlađen, posipan sa šećerom u prahu.

Upside-Down Apple Cake / Naopaki kolač od jabuka

It’s apple season which means we all have some extra apples rolling around. Lucky for you, this cake is just the thing to make! It comes together super quickly and in a single bowl.

I decided to make my cake with crème fraiche because, frankly, that’s what was in my fridge. But sour cream, yogurt or buttermilk would also work. Just keep in mind that you’ll have to adjust the milk amount accordingly and maybe add a bit more sugar to balance out with the sourness. Also, you can easily sub sunflower seeds with chopped walnuts if that’s your thing.

IMGP7719

IMGP7715

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 cake / 4.25 EUR)

For the apples:

4-5 apples (0.80 EUR)

3 tbsp sugar (0.02 EUR)

1 tbsp cinnamon (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.13 EUR)

For the batter:

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 cups crème fraiche (1.33 EUR)

½ cup milk (0.07 EUR)

4 tbsp butter, melted (0.53 EUR)

1 tsp cinnamon (0.07 EUR)

½ cup sugar (0.07 EUR)

3 cups all-purpose flour (0.30 EUR)

1 tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp baking soda (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 cup sunflower seeds (0.27 EUR)

Additional:

Butter for greasing the pan (0.07 EUR)

IMGP7717

IMGP7722

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Butter a square baking pan and line it with parchment paper, then set aside. Wash, peel and core the apples. Dice the apples up and toss them together with sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. You’ll maybe need to add a bit more sugar if your apples are tart, but mine were quite sweet. Evenly distribute the apples on the bottom of a prepared pan and set aside.

Use the same bowl in which you’ve tossed the apples and whisk in it the eggs with vanilla, crème fraiche and milk. Pour in melted butter and stir to incorporate. Add in cinnamon, sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir until just combined, then fold in sunflower seeds. Pour the batter over the apples and gently shake the pan to even out. Bake for 40 minutes, until the cake is deep golden brown and a skewer inserted inside comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool completely in its pan before flipping it over on a cutting board. Carefully peel off the parchment paper and cut the cake into squares. Serve at room temperature.

Pošto su jabuke u sezoni i ima ih na sve strane, ja vam donosim jedan super recept za kolač, koji ne samo da ćete pripremiti jako brzo, nego ćete i za cijelu pripremu uprljati samo jednu zdjelu.

Ja sam smjesu radila sa mileramom jer je to iskreno ono što nam se našlo doma. Ovdje bi kao zamjena svakako funkcionirali i kiselo vrhnje, jogurt ili kiselo mlijeko, međutim ako se odlučite za jednu od tih opcija, onda svakako prilagodite i količinu mlijeka i možda dodajte još mrvicu šećera da izbalansirate kiselinu. Također, i suncokretove sjemenke možete slobodno zamijeniti sjeckanim orasima ako su vam oni draži.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 kolač / 31,72 kn)

Za jabuke:

4-5 jabuka (6,00 kn)

3 žlice šećera (0,15 kn)

1 žlica cimeta (1,00 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (1,00 kn)

Za smjesu:

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 šalice milerama (10,00 kn)

½ šalice mlijeka (0,50 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

1 žličica cimeta (0,50 kn)

½ šalice šećera (0,50 kn)

3 šalice glatkog brašna (2,25 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica suncokretovih sjemenki (2,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti protvan (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Namastite pravokutni protvan i obložite ga papirom za pečenje, pa ga stavite na stranu. Operite, ogulite i očistite jabuke od peteljki i koštica. Narežite jabuke na kockice, pa ih pomiješajte sa šećerom, cimetom i limunovim sokom. Ako su vam jabuke kiselije, možda će vam trebati još malo ekstra šećera, ali moje su bile baš slatke. Jabuke ravnomjerno rasporedite po dnu pripremljenog protvana.

Upotrijebite istu zdjelu u kojoj ste pripremili jabuke i u njoj razmutite jaja sa vanilijom, mileramom i mlijekom. Ulijte u smjesu rastopljeni maslac i promiješajte da se sjedini. Dodajte cimet, šećer, brašno, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol. Promiješajte tek toliko koliko treba da se sastojci sjedine i onda nježno umiješajte suncokretove sjemenke. Smjesu rasporedite po jabukama i nježno protresite protvan da se sve poravna. Pecite 40 minuta, dok kolač ne bude zlatno-smeđi, a testni štapić koji upiknete ne izađe čist.

Pustite da se kolač skroz ohladi u protvanu prije nego ga iskrenete na dasku za rezanje. Pažljivo skinite papir za pečenje i narežite kolač na kocke. Poslužite na sobnoj temperaturi.

Coconut Chia Pudding with Easy Raspberry Jam (vegan) / Chia puding sa kokosovim mlijekom i brzinskim pekmezom od maline (veganski)

Let’s be honest, this dish looks quite unattractive. Or better yet, fugly. But it’s quite tasty and falls into a category of deserts that are healthy and good for you. I think it would be even better with cacao powder, but alas, I’ve ran out of it so couldn’t verify this theory. Let me know what you think if you give it a go, though.

IMGP7685

IMGP7672

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.51 EUR per serving / 2.03 EUR for all)

For the pudding:

3 cups homemade coconut milk (0.33 EUR)

4 tbsp chia seeds (0.53 EUR)

1 tsp ground stevia (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 tsp ground cinnamon (0.07 EUR)

For the raspberry jam:

1 cup frozen raspberries (0.67 EUR)

½ cup pitted dates (0.33 EUR)

IMGP7673

IMGP7676

METHOD:

Make the pudding by throwing all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulsing. Allow it to sit for about ten minutes and then pulse once more. Divide the mixture between four jars and refrigerate overnight.

Meanwhile, prepare the raspberry-date jam. Thaw the raspberries a bit and pulse in a food processor with dates. Either leave this mixture as it is, or cook for 5-10 minutes on low heat to additionally thicken. Allow to cool completely before topping the chia pudding with it.

The pudding will keep refrigerated for a few days.

Budimo iskreni, ovo jelo izgleda poprilično neatraktivno. Ili bolje rečeno, grdo. Ali zapravo je prilično ukusno i pada pod kategoriju zdravih deserta. Mislim da bi stvar bila još finija sa kakao prahom, ali nama ga je baš bilo ponestalo pa nisam mogla potvrditi ovu teoriju. Javite mi kako vam je ispalo ako se vi odlučite to isprobati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 3,80 kn po porciji / 15,20 kn za sve)

Za puding:

3 šalice domaćeg kokosovog mlijeka (2,50 kn)

4 žlice chia sjemenki (4,00 kn)

1 žličica stevije u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žličice cimeta u prahu (0,50 kn)

Za pekmez od malina:

1 šalica smrznutih malina (5,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Pripremite puding tako da sve sastojke ubacite u multipraktik i propulsirate. Ostavite desetak minuta da miruje, pa onda opet propulsirajte. Rasporedite puding u četiri posude i stavite u hladnjak preko noći.

U međuvremenu pripremite pekmez od malina i datulja. Maline odmrznite i skupa sa datuljama propulsirajte u multipraktiku. Pekmez možete ostaviti takav kakav je ili ga dodatno zgusnite tako da ga 5-10 minuta kuhate na laganoj vatri. Pustite da se skroz ohladi prije nego pekmez rasporedite po chia pudingu.

Puding će držati u hladnjaku nekoliko dana.

Frozen Vegan Peanut Butter Caramel Squares (raw) / Smrznute veganske karamel kocke sa maslacem od kikirikija (sirove)

These squares are just the perfect combination of sweet, gooey and rich. They also come together so fast that you just have to make them. Also, be sure to have a few friends around when you whip up these so you don’t just polish the whole batch by yourself. 😀

IMGP7576

IMGP7563

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 3-4servings / 0.49 EUR per serving / 1.49 EUR for all)

1 cup pitted dates (0.66 EUR)

½ cup water (–)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

½ cup peanut butter (0.80 EUR)

IMGP7570

IMGP7573

METHOD:

Soak the dates in water for about an hour. Transfer the dates into a food processor with ½ a cup of soaking liquid and vanilla. Pulse until you have a smooth and uniform paste. Add in peanut butter, then pulse more until fully combined. If needed, add in a splash more of reserved soaking liquid.

Line a small tray or a bowl with cling foil and carefully transfer in there the prepared dough. Even out with a spatula and freeze for an hour. Once the dough is frozen, pull out the cling foil to remove the frozen dough from your tray. Cut into squares and serve immediately. These become gooey quite quickly if left at room temperature, so store in the freezer everything you’re not planning to eat up right away.

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice kikiriki maslaca (6,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Namočite datulje u vodi na sat vremena. Preselite datulje u multipraktik sa ½ šalice vode u kojoj su se namakale i vanilijom. Pulsirajte dok ne dobijete glatku i jednoličnu pastu. Dodajte kikiriki maslac, pa propulsirajte još jednom dok se sve ne sjedini. Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode od datulja.

Mali protvan ili posudu obložite prijanjajućom folijom i pažljivo u to preselite smjesu. Poravnajte špatulom i stavite u zamrzivač na sat vremena. Kada je smjesa smrznuta, povucite foliju i tako izvadite sve iz protvana. Narežite na kocke i odmah poslužite. Ove kocke će se brzo rastrackati ako ih ostavite na sobnoj temperaturi, pa sve što ne planirate odmah pojesti čuvajte u zamrzivaču.

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.

IMGP7593

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 cake / 3.42 EUR)

For the batter:

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

1 tsp vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

1 cup milk (0.20 EUR)

4 tbsp butter, melted (0.53 EUR)

5 tbsp sugar (0.07 EUR)

2 cups + 1 tbsp of all-purpose flour, divided (0.15 EUR)

1 and ½ tsp baking powder (0.02 EUR)

1 tbsp raw cocoa powder (0.13 EUR)

1 cup frozen blueberries (1.33 EUR)

For the frosting:

2 tbsp butter (0.27 EUR)

1 tsp milk (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7598

IMGP7601

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.

Ako ste navraćali na blog kada sam objavila recept za kokosovo mlijeko, onda znate da je nusprodukt kokosova pulpa. A evo što sa njom možete učiniti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 3-4 porcije / 3,23 kn po porciji / 9,70 kn za sve)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

1 šalica kokosove pulpe ili kokosovog brašna (2,50 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

Mali protvan ili posudu obložite prijanjajućom folijom, pa u njega pažljivo preselite smjesu koju ste pripremili. Poravnajte špatulom i stavite u zamrzivač na sat vremena. Kada je tijesto smrznuto, povucite foliju i tako izvadite sve iz posude. Pustite jedno pet minuta da se malo otpusti i onda narežite na kocke i poslužite. Ono što ne mislite odmah pojesti čuvajte u zamrzivaču.

White Chocolate Bluberry Muffins / Mafini sa bijelom čokoladom i borovnicama

If you’ve read my previous recipe for cashew milk, you’ve noticed that a byproduct is some leftover cashew pulp. Of course, I didn’t want to throw that goodness away, so I came up with a quick and easy muffin recipe instead. Incidentally, I had some white chocolate lying around, so into the muffins it went. Let me tell you, these turned out sooo delicious.

Also, I decided to bake these into mini muffins, but the recipe bellow would yield 12 regular sized muffins.

IMGP7473

IMGP7479

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 12 muffins / 0.27 EUR per muffin / 3.19 EUR for all)

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

1 and ½ cups yogurt (0.60 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

2 tbsp butter, melted (0.27 EUR)

¼ cup cashew pulp (free – it was a leftover from another recipe)

½ cup ground sunflower seeds (0.07 EUR)

4 tbsp sugar (0.03 EUR)

2 cups all-purpose flour (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp baking soda (0.01 EUR)

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease your muffin tin with a bit of oil or butter, but skip this step if using silicone muffin molds. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt and vanilla. Pour in melted butter and whisk to incorporate. Add in cashew pulp, ground sunflower seeds, sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then stir until just combined. Gently fold in white chocolate chunks and frozen blueberries. Pour the mixture into the prepared muffin tin.

Bake for about 25 minutes, until golden brown on top. Allow the muffins to cool for about 5 minutes before removing them from the pan and transferring to a cooling rack. Serve the muffins warm or at room temperature.

Ako ste pročitali moj prethodni recept za mlijeko od indijskih oraščića, onda znate da je nusprodukt toga i pulpa. Naravno, ja ju ni u kojem slučaju nisam htjela baciti, pa sam na brzinu smislila jednostavni recept za mafine. Također, doma mi se baš našlo i nešto bijele čokolade koju sam isto ubacila u smjesu, a mafini su naravno ispali prefini.

Ja sam odlučila ispeći mini mafine, ali recept u nastavku je za 12 mafina normalne veličine.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12 mafina / 1,97 kn po mafinu / 23,68 za sve)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica jogurta (4,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (2,00 kn)

¼ šalice pulpe od indijskih oraščića (besplatno – ostalo od drugog recepta!)

½ šalice mljevenih suncokretovih sjemenki (0,50 kn)

4 žlice šećera (0,20 kn)

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2/3 šalice komadića bijele čokolade (5,00 kn)

2/3 šalice smrznutih borovnica (6,66 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Ako koristite plehnati kalup za mafine, lagano ga namastite sa malo ulja ili maslaca. Za silikonske kalupe ovaj korak preskočite. U velikoj zdjeli razmutite zajedno jaja, jogurt i vaniliju. Dodajte maslac pa promiješajte da se inkorporira. Sada dodajte pulpu od indijskih oraščića, mljevene suncokretove sjemenke, šećer, brašno, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol, te sve promiješajte tek toliko koliko treba da se sastojci sjedine. Nježno umiješajte čokoladu i borovnice pa smjesu rasporedite po pripremljenim kalupima.

Pecite oko 25 minuta, dok mafini ne budu zlatno-smeđi. Ostavite ih pet minuta da se malo ohlade prije nego ih izvadite iz kalupa i stavite hladiti na rešetku. Mafine poslužite tople ili na sobnoj temperaturi.
