Brutti ma buoni



I have got idea to make brutti ma buoni from Emilio Cugnetto. I have little bit changed his recipe.
Brutti ma buoni means "Ugly but good". In my opinion those cookies are adorable! I love their taste. Very good to eat them with cafe latte or cappucino.

Ingredients:

250 gram. of walnuts
200 gram. of any of your favourite nuts (for example hazelnuts, pistachios)
1 cup of icing sugar
5 eggs whites (room temperature)
4 tablespoons of sifted flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla esence.

1. Preheat oven to 170 Celsius degrees
2. Whisk egg whites for about few minutes. When you see they are start look like foam add sugar.
3. Whisk for about 6 minutes on medium speed.
4. When eggs whites change consistency to silky, smooth they are ready.



5. Use spoon and gently mix nuts, flour and vanilla extract with batter.



6. Grease baking pan and sprinkle it with flour or bread crumbs.
7. Drop batter from a rounded teaspoon. Live space between cookies.



8. Bake for about 25 minutes until golden colour.
9. They crush easily so be very careful with brutti ma buoni.



Bon Apetite!

Korean pancake with brown sugar and walnut syrup


I love Korea! I have been looking for easy recipe for korean sweets. Hoddeok is one of them. You might eat it with nutella, chesse filings or you can make it in traditional way. 
This recipe is for 8 hoddeoks.

What you need:

1 cup warm milk or water 
2 teaspoons of dry yeast 
pinch of salt 
1 tablespoon of oil
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 cups of flour

For filling:

Half cup of brown sugar 
3 tablespoons of ground walnuts 
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Preparation:

1. Mix together: milk (or water), yeast, sugar, salt and oil 
2. Add the flour. Combine the ingredients with spoon. 
3. Cover bowl with foil and leave for about an hour to rise.




4. After one hour knead the dough to remove air bubbles. Again, cover the bowl with foil and leave it for another 10-20 minutes 
5. Mix all the syrup ingredients.




6. On pastry board sprinkle flour (about a half cup of flour). Lightly knead the dough. Divide the dough into 8 parts.



7. From every part create a ball. Flattened it and put syrup in the middle. Yeast dough dries quickly, so it is a good idea to cover those parts of the dough with foil, which are waiting for their turn.



8. Stick dough edges like the dumpling or doughnut. 
9. Warm up the oil in the pan. Put the ball at its center.



10. Fry in medium heat for about 30 seconds. Then turn ball to the other side and spread it to has size as CD. Fry in this position about 1 minute.


11. Again turn over pancake and fry for about 1 minute.


12. Again turn over a pancake and fry, but now at a very low heat. You can cover the pan lid 
13. After about a minute hoddeok will be ready. 
14. Serve hot!

Bon Appetit
