English pudding

Ingredients:

  • 1 wrinkled apple
  • 2 stale rolls or other bread
  • 250 ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of rapeseed or coconut oil
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • coconut flakes

Preparation

  1. Set the multicooker to the “Baking” program at 180°C (356°F).
  2. Grease a smaller heat-resistant dish (e.g., 21x15x7 cm) with oil or butter. It’s best to cut the bread you want to use for the pudding the day before and let it dry completely on a cutting board.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with milk, sugar, and cinnamon. Pour the mixture over the bread and let it soak for 5-15 minutes. If the bread was very stale, you can add more milk. The soaked bread should be very soft, then transfer it to the greased dish.
  4. Arrange sliced apples on top and sprinkle with coconut flakes. Bake the pudding for 35-40 minutes until the mixture sets and slightly rises.
  5. Top with thawed fruits or jam.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe bananas (they can be dark and ripe)
  • 1 ½ cups of wheat flour or any other type, e.g., whole wheat, oat, or spelt flour
  • ½ cup of brown sugar (white granulated sugar can also be used)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
  • 100g of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt flakes or medium-grain salt

Preparation:

  1. In a bowl, mix together the egg, melted butter, vanilla sugar, and brown sugar. Beat until the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Peel and mash the bananas with a fork, then add them to the mixture. Add baking powder and flour, and mix everything thoroughly. Optionally, you can add a pinch of salt towards the end of mixing – it’s important for the salt not to dissolve but remain in its original form.
  3. Pour the batter into a greased baking tin. Bake in an oven preheated to 170°C (approximately 340°F) for about 35-45 minutes, depending on the size of the tin.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of buckwheat
  • 150g cottage cheese, preferably low-fat
  • 2 onions, finely diced
  • 2 medium-sized eggs
  • 3 teaspoons of salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped dill
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of marjoram
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking oil and breadcrumbs for coating

Preparation:

  1. In a saucepan, pour 5 cups of water, add salt, and bring it to a boil. Add the buckwheat to the boiling water and cook until it becomes fluffy (about 12 minutes). Let it cool.
  2. Fry the diced onions until they become translucent. Let them cool. Grind half of the cooked buckwheat together with the cottage cheese. Mix the ground buckwheat and cottage cheese with the unground buckwheat, chopped onions, pressed garlic, eggs, breadcrumbs, chopped dill, and spices. Knead the mixture until smooth. If the mixture is too loose, you can add more breadcrumbs or a tablespoon of potato flour. Shape the mixture into patties, coat them with breadcrumbs, and fry them in heated oil until they turn golden brown. Serve the patties hot, ideally with green lettuce and vinaigrette or mushroom sauce.
