chec cu banane si nuci caramelizate (also in English)


(For English scroll down)

… adica si bananele si nucile sunt caramelizate… iar culoarea asta superba, nu va lasati pacaliti, este exclusiv rezultatul caramelizarii (nu contine deloc cacao).

Are gust intens de banane caramelizate, pentru ca am folosit tehnica lui Dan Lepard, pe care o gasiti si aici. Am caramelizat insa si nucile si am folosit si zahar brun. Pentru o textura super-soft, am pus niste urda, dar cred ca poate fi optionala, la fel optionale sunt sunt picaturile de ciocolata.

Ingrediente:

2 banane coapte
60 g de nuci
100g unt
100g zahar alb
60g zahar brun
2 oua
100g urda
1 lingura de lapte batut/ iaurt
195g faina
1 lingurita de bicarbonat de sodiu
1/2 lingurita de praf de copt
un praf de sare

optional: un pumn de picaturi de ciocolata

Metoda:

  1. Se taie bananele felii si se toaca grosier nucile. Zaharul alb impreuna cu 25ml de apa se pune intr-o craticioara la foc mare, pana cand capata o culoare aramie. Atunci se adauga untul, bananele si nucile, pana cand bananele se dezintegreaza. Ca aici.
  2. Se ia compozitia de pe foc si se zdrobesc complet bananele, eu am folosit o ustensila de facut piure. Se lasa sa se raceasca complet

3. Intr-un vas se bat cu un mixer ouale cu zaharul brun. Se adauga urda (la temperatura camerei si bine mixata inainte, pentru a fi cremoasa) si laptele batut. Se adauga si piure-ul de banane si se amesteca usor cu o spatula sau un tel.

4. Faina se amesteca cu praful de copt si bicarbonatul si se cerne peste compozitia de banane (suntem tot la momentul “spatula”/ “tel”). Tot acum se introduc picaturile de ciocolata.

5. Rezulta un aluat cleios, lipicios care se pune intr-o tava de chec, asternuta cu hartie de copt. Deasupra se poate decora cu jumatati de nuca.

6. Se coace la 180 de grade, timp de appx 1h.

Caramelized bananas and nuts bread (recipe in English)

Both the bananas and walnuts are caramelized and gorgeous … and this color, do not be fooled, it is solely the result of caramelization (the recipe contains no cocoa).

Caramelized banana tastes intensely, I used Dan Lepard’s technique, which you can find here. But I also caramelized the nuts and I used brown sugar. For a super-soft texture, I added some ricotta cheese, but I think it can be optional, as are the chocolate chips.

Ingredients:

2 ripe bananas
60 g walnuts
100g butter
100g white sugar
60g brown sugar
2 eggs
100g ricotta
1 tablespoon of buttermilk/ yogurt
195g flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt

Optional: a handful of chocolate chips

Method:     

  1. Slice the bananas and coarsely chop the walnuts. Put the white sugar with 25ml of water in a saucepan over high heat, until they caramelize to an amber color. Then add butter, bananas and nuts, and keep on fire until bananas disintegrate. Like here.   
  2. Take the composition of the fire and completely crush the bananas. Allow to cool completely
  3. In a bowl, beat eggs and brown sugar with a mixer. Add ricotta (at room temperature and mixed well before, to be creamy) and the buttermilk. Add the mashed banana composition and mix gently with a spatula/ whisk.

  4. Mix flour with baking powder and baking soda and sift over the composition of bananas (still with a spatula). Also now add the chocolate drops.    

  5.  The result is a sticky dough. Put it in a loaf pan lined with baking paper. You can decorate the top walnut halves.    

  6. Bake at 180 degrees C for 1h.
