Strangely enough, this recipe came to us from Germany and got so accustomed in our country that now almost every beginning housewife can cook it. In addition, a big plus is that only 4 ingredients are required for the basic recipe of the cake layers.
A dairy girl is a budget version of baking for every day, since all the products at a cost do not exceed 100 rubles for the cake and the same amount for the cream.
And where you for 200 Russian ruble get a delicious cake? Yes, no pastry shop for less than 500 will not sell any full type of baking.
But this is not the most important thing. The fact is that cake cakes are combined with almost all kinds of fillers.
Would you like nuts — put, fruit — too, please. If you want to cover the cake with chocolate icing or mastic, then this recipe is acceptable for him.
In general, no matter how fantasy played out — it is almost impossible to spoil this baking.
For cooking, in addition to the basic ingredients, you will need some tools and a sheet of baking paper and a pencil. Before proceeding to the test, we will understand what these improvised materials are for.
On a piece of baking paper, you must draw a circle of such diameter as should be a fully cooked cake. You can use for this plate or the lower part of the split form or cover from the pan.
Only if you have even drawn a circle, do not move the subject away, as it will be needed later.
So what of the ingredients is in the standard recipe to bake a cake with the laconic and simple name «Milk Girl»:
- Condensed milk — 1 can;
- Chicken Egg — 2 pieces;
- Flour — a little less than a glass — 150-160 grams;
- Baking powder — 1 pack.
Where else can you meet baking with so few ingredients, even in pancakes, and then more components are necessary. Of course, you need a cream, but there are few products in it.
For the cream, you can also choose condensed milk with butter, so there are only five ingredients for the whole cake.
The recipe of cooking is somewhat complicated, but not by making dough, but by careful baking the cake, since everything must be done after removing the cake from the oven very quickly.
Let’s start with the dough.
The first step is to pour the condensed milk from the jar into a bowl and break eggs there. Mix everything thoroughly with a whisk or fork until smooth, then pour the sifted flour and baking powder into this bowl. Stir again and rest for 15 minutes.
After this rest, the cakes are more airy and fluffy.
While the dough is settling, it is necessary to draw a circle, not with a sheet of baking paper, with the help of a lid, tray or baking dish or plate. And also turn on the oven to heat 180 degrees.
After a quarter of an hour, put the paper on a baking sheet and pour two full spoons of dough into the center of the circle. We level it a little and set it on for 5 minutes. During this time, the cake will be browned and baked.
We take out the baking sheet from the oven and immediately remove the paper from the cake. If you delay a little, then this cake will begin to cool and it will be impossible to tear the parchment from baking.
There is also one more peculiarity of the cake layers — they stick to each other if they are put on one plate, therefore it is better to use several plates or a large baking mat, on which four or five cake layers will enter at once.
While the pieces of the cake are cooling, you need to make a cream,
To do this, beat the softened butter with a mixer at medium or low speed and gradually add condensed milk.
If the cakes turned out not even, then it’s time to cut them, putting on top of the dishes, on which they drew a circle and cut off the excess either with a sharp knife or a pizza knife. After the preparation of the cream, grease the cakes well and coat all sides of the cake.
From scraps, if any, make crumb and sprinkle on top.
Put the cooked and missed cake in the fridge for a couple of hours, you can overnight. The longer a milk girl gets soaked, the tastier and juicier she becomes.
This is a basic recipe that contains the basic ingredients for cooking, but if you want to add flavor to the cake, you can only change the cream or add different additives between the cake layers and as a decoration.
Oddly enough, but absolutely all the berries and fruits are perfectly combined with the cake. At any time of the year, you can use both preservatives and fresh products. In winter, well-suited frozen berries from their own site, fresh in summer.
If there is no problem, you can supply a dairy girl with canned food from the most exotic fruits.
Cream that fits the Milk Girl cake:
- Whipped cream;
- Curd base;
- Sour cream;
In addition to the standard recipe with white dough, you can use the recipe with chocolate cake, for this you need to add to the recipe 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and instead of the usual condensed milk buy boiled. Since two more dense ingredients are added, it is better to increase the number of eggs and take three selected or four pieces of the second category.
After these changes, you get a tanned milk girl.
And in order for the cake to contrast with the cream, then apply the recipe with whipped cream of white color, that is, do not add cocoa to them.
Ingredients that turned out after the change and addition:
- Wheat flour — 150 gr .;
- Cocoa — 2 tablespoons;
- Egg (selective) — 3 pcs .;
- Boiled condensed milk — 1 bank;
- Soda or baking powder — 1 tsp
- Fatty cream — 500 ml .;
- Sugar powder — 0.5 cup.
We start cooking the dough,
The recipe remains unchanged, lay out the condensed boiled milk in a bowl and add eggs. All mix well. Next, sift immediately through a sieve flour, soda and cocoa.
Knead the dough and leave it for 15-20 minutes to rest.
Make a circle drawing on the parchment for baking and put it on a baking sheet. Then pour 2 full tablespoons of dough into the very center and set in the preheated oven.
It is necessary to bake a cake at a temperature of 180-200 degrees for no more than 5-6 minutes each cake. After you get the cakes and remove the parchment from them, also lay them out on different plates to cool.
For the cream — whip the cream until thick and gradually, without removing the mixer, pour the icing sugar.
Collect the cake, putting on each cake, as much cream as possible.
For one part up to 5 full tablespoons. When all the cakes are put together, you can decorate the cake with the remaining whipped cream using a pastry bag.
Then we put it in the fridge and the “rested under the hot sun” milk girl is ready in 2-3 hours.
Any recipe is so simple that this cake could be taught in home economics lessons at school. It would be delicious and the girls would immediately learn to cook.
Although it is not clear what is being taught in these lessons now, because the boys do not know how to drive a nail or twist a screw, and the girls do not know how to cook and sew at all.
A little about the form
in all recipes that are found anywhere, there is always a round-shaped dairy girl. But this is not necessary, as if there is a desire to come up with a different form, but to save the recipe is quite possible. But in this case it is necessary to experiment with the number of spoons of dough for the picture.
2 full tablespoons are designed for a circle with a diameter of 20 cm. Depending on this, calculate the area of your pattern, and find out how many spoons are needed for baking the cake.
If you make pastries with a layer of fruit, then first the cake is smeared with cream, then the fruits are laid evenly and then covered with the next cake. When using butter cream, this dessert will look good under the mastic, only it must be removed for the night in the fridge, as the cream should be absorbed and only the next day cover with mastic and make a variety of decorations.
It should be remembered that this pastry is very gentle and soft, so the layer of mastic for covering should be thin, and not load the dessert with unnecessary sweetness. Any condensed milk, and so will give the cake a sweet rich flavor.
Since baking and preparing the dough do not take too much time, it is not necessary to wait for the weekend to please their loved ones with the soft, tender dessert that Germany presented.
