Šokoladinis Pyragas su Rikotos Kremu/ Chocolate Cake with Ricotta Cream

Galiu prisipažinti, kad aš nemoku kepti pyragų, nors gaunasi skanūs, bet atrodo tikrai nekaip... Tikriausiai trūksta praktikos. Na su laiku gal išmoksiu, o kol kas vaišinti ir fotografuoti tenka tokį rezultatą.



Rikotos kremas išvis buvo 'netyčiukas'. Aš net neplanavau pirkti rikotos, bet kol maniškis knaisiojosi po buitinių prekiųš skyriu aš užklydau į pieno skyriu ir ten kas užkliuvo už akių ta ir pasiėmiau. Ir bekepant pyragą sugalvojau, kad reikia tą nusipirktą rikotą kažkur panaudoti.

Produktai pyragui:

1 stiklinė miltų
150 g. rudo cukraus
1 a.š. kepimo miltelių
2 v.š. kakavos miltelių
2 kiaušiniai
2 v.š. romo
150 ml aliejaus
150 ml pieno

Produktai rikotos kremui:

1 stiklinė rikotos (aš naudojau liesą)
1 a.š. kakavos miltelių
1 v.š. romo
Cukraus pudros pagal skonį (aš dėjau 4 v.š.)

Gaminimo procesas:

Sumaišyti visus sausus produktus. Atskirai sumaišyti kiaušinius, aliejų ir pieną. Skystus produktus supilti į sausus ir gerai išmaišyti iki vientisos masės.

Orkaitę įkaitinti iki 160C. Kepimo formą ištiesti kepimo popieriumi, supilti tešlą ir kepti epti trupučiu sviestu, supilti paruoštą masę ir kepti apie 45 minutes arba kol pyragas bus iškepęs.

Rikotos kremo produktus gerai išmaišyti kartu.

Atvėsintą pyragą perpjauti per pusę ir pertepti rikotos kremu. Aš taip perteptą palikau pyragą per naktį šaldytuve.



I have to admit that I am not good at baking cakes, they taste good, but look really disappointing.. Maybe I just don't have enough practice. Well, maybe I will learn with time, but at the moment I can only take pictures and share the result that I have.

Ricotta cream I actually didn't plan making at all. I didn't even plan to buy ricotta, but while my husband was digging in some household stuff, I went to the dairy section and grabbed the first thing that caught my eye. WHile baking the cake I realized that I can actually use the ricotta that I have bought.


Products for the Cake:


1 cup flour
150 gr. brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 eggs
2 tbsp rum
150 ml of oil
150 ml of milk

Products for the Ricotta Cream:

1 cup ricotta (I used light)
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp rum
Icing sugar to taste (I used 4 tbsp)

Method:

Mix together all dry ingredients. In the other bowl mix eggs, oil and milk. Then mix well until combined dry ingredients with liquid ingredients.

Preheat the oven to 160C. Line the baking tray with baking paper, pour in the dough and bake it for about 45 minutes, or until the cake is done.

Mix well together all the ingredients for the ricotta cream.

When the cake cools cut the cake into two horizontal layers, spread cream over bottom layer and top with remaining cake layer. I left the cake for the night in the fridge before serving.

  1. Na manau visai neblogai pavyko :) o ir tiesa tavo - meistriškumas ateina begaminant. Reikia tik pažiūrėti į Saulėtos virtuvės tortus, kurie kaskart vis įspūdingesni :)

  7. I am definitely on a learning process when it comes to assembling layer cakes, especially the ones that are stacked with split layers I always seem to have some problem issues, but I will continue working on them.
    The pairing of a ricotta filling with the chocolate cake does sound like a delicious idea! I have not used ricotta in any of my baking yet, so this looks like a great recipe to start with.

  9. I've never tried a ricotta cream before...looks like a fun thing to play around with. Half the fun of cake baking practice is all the taste testing we get to do. ;)
