If you want to spend a minimum of effort and cook something tasty and sweet, a cake in a pan is the way out. Due to the fact that the recipe is rather “lazy”, you will not get tired and spend not much time, so you will have time to do other household chores.
Ways of preparation, technologies and a similar compounding the big set.
I offer you a choice of several recipes from which you can choose the most optimal one for yourself:
This recipe is simple.
For the test you will need:
- Dining flour — 3-4 glasses
- Sour cream — 200 g
- Sugar — 1 cup
- Soda, slaked with vinegar or baking powder — 1 tsp.
- Butter -50 g
For the filling you will need:
- Condensed milk — to taste
- Sour cream or butter — 3 tablespoons or 100 g
- Jam to your taste — 4 tbsp.
To cook a full-fledged cake in a pan — you will need to knead the dough for the cake layers and cook them, then make a cream and smear the cake layers with them.
To knead the dough, sift the flour through a strainer. So you need to do whenever you bake something. Meanwhile, melt the butter.
Combine the liquid components of your dough — sour cream and butter. Add sugar and stir well.
Next, pour in the flour, the resulting liquid mixture, and add baking powder or soda.
I believe that baking is a matter of taste, like cooking in general. I personally do not like the taste of soda in baking, although it is practically not noticeable, I always recognize it, so I use baking powder for making confectionery.
I think this recipe is perfect even if you are cooking a cake in a pan.
Knead the dough in a large bowl or any other container to make it easier to mix. As you should, kneading the dough, roll it into a neat cake that fits in your pan. Not scary, if the cakes turn out not exactly the same, everything comes with time.
You still gain experience, if you often use this recipe.
Cakes are baked like pancakes for several minutes on each side. The fire should not be made too large, otherwise the cake will burn.
Requirements for the pan:
The pan must be specially coated so that the dough does not stick. If the surface of the pan is uneven or there is no such coating, then you will have to try hard to turn the cake over to the other side without damaging its texture.
Otherwise, the cake can fall apart and then it will be very offensive.
Therefore, choose the dishes in which you will cook — in advance.
After you have cooked the cake layers (there are about four of them), let them cool.
If you put the cream on hot cakes, the cream may leak.
Let your cakes cool enough.
In order to prepare the cream for this recipe, mix the condensed milk, of your choice, or with sour cream, or with butter.
If you choose butter, you will need to actively stir it. Oil should not be cold and hard, it should be malleable.
Alternatively, you can mix for the cream of boiled condensed milk and butter.
The final stage.
Spread your cooled cakes with cream. Some can be smeared with jam for a change.
The cake should be infused, put it in the fridge, preferably overnight.
The recipe of «Napoleon» in the pan
This cake in the pan to cook is much more difficult than the previous one. I want to note that only the cakes you have to make about 14 pieces.
Impregnation for cakes in such a confection is a custard.
Ingredients for the dough:
- Granulated sugar -1 glass
- Flour — 3 glasses
- Butter — 70 g
- Soda, slaked or baking powder — 2 tsp.
- Eggs — 3 pieces
- Salt — Pinch
- Ingredients for cream:
- Sugar — 1 cup
- Eggs — 3 pcs.
- Flour — 2 tbsp.
- Milk — 1 L
- Vanillin — 1 g
- Butter — 250 g (optional)
Stage 1 dough
In the sifted flour add eggs beaten with sugar and melted butter, put baking powder or soda, which must be quenched with vinegar. The dough, like any other, must be well mixed with your hands.
Next, give the dough a «rest.»
Stage 2, cream
To make custard, you can use both flour and starch. The most difficult thing in cooking custard is to ensure that there are no lumps, and it does not burn.
To make custard, you need to beat the eggs and pour sugar into them, add flour and milk, stir and put on a small fire. To avoid lumps — constantly stir.
As soon as the cream boils — remove from the burner. To give the cream a creamy taste, you can add butter to it, then it will turn out fatter, more nutritious and nutritious.
Let the cream cool. And at this time you can take for cakes.
Divide the dough into several pieces, and roll out the cakes. Napoleon is a multi-layer cake, so you need to make a lot of cake layers. I do 14-15.
Each cake is better to bake in a dry pan with a special non-stick coating. They bake quickly, like pancakes. When the cakes are ready, brush them with custard.
Between the layers, you can pour chopped nut mass.
I usually take walnuts for this and make small crumb with a blender.
This recipe takes you 40 minutes.
The cake in the pan according to this technology is very tasty and festive. In my opinion, this recipe is the best.
This is a more complicated recipe than the first one and it is suitable for hostesses with experience. But in principle, everyone can try to bake such a cake in a pan — the main thing would be desire.
Berry cake in a pan
And finally, I want to offer you to make a cake with berries.
For the dough you will need:
- Flour — 6 tbsp.
- Butter, melted — 80 g
- Eggs — 1 pc.
- Baking powder or soda — 1 tsp.
- Sugar — 2 tbsp.
Liquid dough ingredients should be added to flour (this is a general rule for kneading dough), and not vice versa, it will save your dough from the formation of unnecessary lumps. All components of the dough must be well stirred.
Lubricate the pan with butter, put the dough on it. Top with fresh berries (for example, strawberries) and sprinkle them with sugar, but do not overdo it, so that the sugar does not start to burn.
Bake 20 minutes on low heat.
Regardless of which recipe you choose, you need to try cooking not only according to the recipe, you need to notice small details in the process of preparing your confectionery, and then you will become well aware of how to prepare such culinary products. You will be a real expert!
