ENGELKOEK


ENGELKOEK
Angel Cake gebak van die 9 eierwitte wat ek gevries het.
½ koppie meel en ½ koppie Maizena (of 1 koppie meel)
1 ½ koppies suiker
9 groot eierwitte
1 ¼ teelepels kremetart (ek het ¼ koppie suurlemoensap gebruik)
1 teelepel vanieljegeursel
¼ teelepel amandelgeursel (dit het ek nie bygevoeg nie)
¼ teelepel sout

Voorverhit oond tot 180°C. Laat staan eierwitte tot kamertemperatuur.
Sif ½ koppie suiker en meel 2 keer saam.
Klits eierwitte tot stywe punte vorm.
Voeg 1 koppie suiker 2 eetlepels op ‘n slag by.
Voeg vanielje geursel en kremetart by en klop tot stywe punte vorm.
Vou meel ½ koppie op ‘n slag in styfgeklopte eierwitte.
Bak 35 tot 40 minute. Laat afkoel in pan.

NB!! Koekpan moet nie gespuit of gesmeer word nie. Die beslag moet teen die rant van die pan kan opkruip.
Nota:  Ek sal dit volgende keer in 2 panne bak, is nogal moeilik om met ‘n mes middeldeur te sny. Sal ook liewers net room opsit as die grenadella versiersel wat ek gebruik het, die versiersel is baie soet.

HUMMINGBIRD CAKE


HUMMINGBIRD CAKE
Cake Batter:
1 ½ cups chopped pecans
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon ‎
½ teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 ¾ cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large)
1 (8-oz) can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
¾ cup canola oil
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

Glaze:
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed and softened
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 2 Tablespoons milk

Prepare Cake Batter:
Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through.
Stir together flour and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; stir in eggs and next 4 ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Sprinkle 1 cup toasted pecans into a greased and floured 14-cup Bundt pan. Spoon batter over pecans.
Bake at 180ºC for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 2 hours).

Prepare Glaze:
Process cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1 Tbsp milk in a food processor until well blended. Add remaining 1 Tbsp milk, 1 tsp at a time, processing until smooth. Immediately pour glaze over cooled cake, and sprinkle with remaining ½ cup toasted pecans.
Note:
Ek het die hummingbirdkoek se beslag gemaak en in muffinpanne gebak. Dit het 40 muffins gemaak. Dit vries goed. Vir versiering het ek “plain cream cheese” gebruik, vanilla, kaneel en ‘n klein bietjie versiersuiker gemeng. Bo-op is daar papawersaadjies, pampoenpitte en cranberries.
