.: Whole Lotta Love

Liver and onions is something I love, so I cook it over and over and over and over again. The same as musician from every place in the world love to do some songs over and over and over and over and over again…

and if you don’t know who Michael Winslow is, you better learn it ! Se siete giovani forse non vi ricordate di Michael Winslow… ma dovreste impararlo!

 

.: Black coffee

Well, actually I don’t like black coffee as much as I love dark chocolate, but I still like to play with coffee in the milk foam 😀

and I love Beth & Joe songs really much !

be’ non so cosa preferisco tra Beth e un tortino al cioccolato….

non credo riuscirete a capirlo guardando questo blog, perché è pieno di canzoni di Beth e di tortini al cioccolato 😀

.: Your heart is as black as night

I wanted to try again a version of Brenda’s Ding Dong, with a softer heart.

Ok the test  was not 100% successful, but I really enjoyed the result, because they’re very soft inside. For some reason, with the same amount of ingredients, this time I made four little cakes, instead of three, but ok…

50 gr dark chocolate – cioccolato fondente
25 gr butter – burro
30 gr sugar – zucchero
1 egg – 1 uovo
20 gr flour – farina
10 gr cocoa powder – cacao in polvere
a bit of baking powder – appena un po’ di lievito per dolci
cinnamon – cannella

Process is the same: melt the butter with the chocolate and a bit of cinnamon * sciogliete il burro con il cioccolato e pochissima acqua

Whip the egg white. Blend the sugar with the yolk and mix them all * Montate il bianco a neve e battete il tuorlo con lo zucchero, poi uniteli

Blend the egg+sugarwith the butter+chocolate+cinnamon. Mescolate tutto

e aggiungete anche la farina, il lievito e il cacao * add the flour, the baking powder and cocoa powder. If you need it, add a little milk to make it more fluid * Se è troppo densa, diluitela con un po’ di latte

As you can see, this time is more fluid than the previous time.

Cook in the oven at 160°C for 10 minutes. I left them in the off-turned oven for 3 minutes more, but you can take them out !

and then you have to……… try !

their heart is black and soft

they’re my chocolate !

.: Love is a Lie

Sometimes you think you love something, but when you have a lot of it, you understand it might be too much. Do you like bananas ? I do. So I thought I would try a banamisù… LOL, ok a kind of tiramisù based on banana. I knew banana taste tends to be excessive, but I underestimated the thing. So you will benefit from my mistake. I’m gonna tell you what I did and how to improve it.

Looks good, uh ? Il gusto della banana tende ad essere eccessivo, quindi è importante controbilanciarlo. E io non l’ho fatto abbastanza. Quindi, quando avrete letto la mia ricetta, aggiungete qualcosa di amaro, come del caffè o del cacao amaro oppure delle gocce di cioccolato nel composto.

Ingredients (2 cups):
– 125 gr mascarpone
– 1 egg – 1 uovo
– 2 spoons of sugar – 2 cucchiai di zucchero
– 1 banana
– almond slices – mandorle a fette
– 1 biscuit for decoration – 1 biscotto per decorare
To improve the result:
– coffee, to wet the biscuit – caffè per bagnare il biscotto
– bitter cocoa or chocolate drops – cacao amaro o gocce di cioccolato

Recipe:
Mash half of the banana and brown the almond slices in a pan * schiacciate metà banana e arrostite le fette di mandorla in una padellina

whip the eggwhite * montate il bianco a neve * blend sugar and yolk * mescolate il tuorlo con lo zucchero

add the mashed banana * aggiungete la banana schiacciata * add the mascarpone and the almonds (keep some aside for the decoration) – [here is the moment to add chocolate drops for an improvement] * aggiungete il mascarpone e le mandorle (tenetene da parte un po’ per la decorazione) – [qui dovreste aggiungere gocce di cioccolato amaro, cosa che io non ho fatto]

Add the whipped eggwhite * aggiungete il bianco a neve

Put some of the mixture in the cup and put some slices of banana on it, then cover with the rest of the mixture * Mettete un po’ del composto nella coppetta, aggiungete qualche fetta di banana e coprite con il resto del composto

Put the biscuit on top [improvement: wet the biscuit in the coffee, before], with the almonds * Decorate con il biscotto [per migliorare il gusto, bagnate il biscotto nel caffè] e le mandorle rimaste

Put them in the freezer * mettete il tutto in freezer.

Now listen to 6 or 7 songs by Beth, then you can take it out of the freezer.
