Walnut cake, apricot jam and whipped cream
I manage to slip through the work at home, the Superblog competition and Alexandru to relax in the kitchen preparing sweets. So I buried a simple cake with walnuts, apricot jam and whipped cream because I had some whipped cream left from the last peach cheesecake ready (recipe here).
It is not a very complicated cake, the intense taste of walnut combines perfectly with the sweet and sour of apricot jam. I also added a little cream with 40% fat so that the cream does not become dry. I leave below the recipe for walnut cake, apricot jam and whipped cream.
What do you need?
100g ground walnuts
50ml grape seed oil
5g baking powder
400ml whipped cream
100g sour cream with 40% fat
5 tablespoons honey or to taste
50g ground walnuts or almonds (optional)
a little lemon peel
10g gelatin sheets
Peach compote juice
How is it prepared?
1. In a large bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar until they double in volume, then incorporate the oil. Gradually add flour mixed with baking powder and finally add walnuts.
2 Wallpaper a baking tray (I used a ceramic jar with a size of 18 × 30) and transfer the composition, leaving it in the oven (on medium heat) for 25-30 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
3. While the countertop is baking, we can prepare the cream. Mix the cream well until it becomes whipped cream. Keep 1/4 of the whipped cream for decoration, and in the rest we add sour cream, honey, ground walnuts, vanilla essence and lemon peel and mix until we get a homogeneous mixture.
4. I also prepared a little gelatin because it seemed to me that the cream was a little liquid and I wanted to make sure that it wasn't in the valley on the counter. I also incorporated gelatin in the cream, according to the instructions on the package, and then I left it in the fridge.
5. After the countertop has cooled completely, divide it into two parts, which we will syrup with the juice from a peach compote.
6. Assemble the cake: top, apricot jam, cream, top and then the simple whipped cream kept before preparing the cream. Store in the refrigerator for a few hours until cut.
Cake with walnuts and apricot jam - Recipes
-12 kg of apricots as ripe as possible
-5 kg of sugar
Washed apricots, remove the seeds. In a larger bowl, in which we will boil the jam, we will put a row of apricots, a row of sugar and so on until we finish the apricots and sugar.
Mix with a spatula and leave from evening until morning, to leave the juice.
The next day we put the pot to boil over medium heat (no need to add water, apricots will leave enough juice).
Let it boil, always watching it (it sticks easily, if we don't stir constantly) and when the foam rises, we will collect it with a spatula. After we have collected the foam, we will increase the fire, a little above the medium and we will take care to mix always. As I said before, we will make the jam and jam over high heat, so that the fruit retains its color. After 35-40 minutes of boiling, we will do the test with a drop in the glass of cold water. of jam, when it reaches the water it does not spread, the jam is ready. But you can very well appreciate in your eyes (so do I) about how thick you want your jam to be and you will stop the fire when you are satisfied with its consistency.
After we put out the fire, in the washed and sterilized jars we will put the jam so hot and we staple them.

Method of preparation
I have to tell you that I love Mary Berry's recipes and recently I saw in one of her shows a loaf cake recipe with apples and cinnamon. It's impossible to go wrong trying to reproduce her recipes, so here's my version of apple loaf cake and apricot jam topping. :)
It's a delicious cake, a perfect combination of sweet and sour, soft and fluffy and it cooks extremely fast, but let's see how it's made, I say. :)
First of all, turn on the oven at 180 ° C to have time to heat up. In a bowl, rub the butter with the flour until it has the consistency of a crumbly dough, add the baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Separately beat the eggs and add the diced apples. We put the egg mixture with apples over the flour composition and with the help of a spatula and we mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Place in a tray lined with paper and put apple slices on top and then press sugar (I used brown sugar), bake for 40-45 minutes until the cake turns yellow - gold and is firm to the touch.
Let it cool for 10 minutes and then with a teaspoon cover the cake with apricot jam. And the end result. tadaaaa. a miracle of very delicious cake and goes perfectly with a tea with loved ones.
