Cooking Mriya cake:

Step 1: prepare the flour.

So, first of all, so that subsequently in the test no lumps come across, it is necessary to sift the flour. In addition, the ingredient will be saturated with oxygen from the air, so that the dough will also become more airy and tender. To do this, pour the flour into a sieve and sift it directly into a medium-sized bowl.

Step 2: prepare the water.

We will make the dough, and so for starters we pour water into the pan and put the container on medium heat. Pour a pinch of salt there and mix everything several times with a tablespoon. When the water boils, and the salt is completely dissolved, do not turn off the burner, but proceed to the process of preparing the dough.

Step 3: prepare the dough.

In a pot of boiling water, add butter. If necessary, make fire less than average. And now, using a tablespoon, mix all the ingredients in a pan until the oil is completely dissolved. Immediately after this we pour the flour into the container, but at the same time we continue to mix everything with improvised equipment, and so on, until the dough is “brewed” and becomes homogeneous. After - turn off the burner, and set the pan with the dough aside to cool slightly. Immediately after the test component becomes warm, we break one egg into the container and at the same time continue to mix everything well with a spoon. Attention: the eggs should mix well with the dough. The consistency of the dough itself is dense, but at the same time soft and pliable.

Step 4: prepare the eclairs.

Mriya cake is a real eclair with a very tasty curd cream. But in order to prepare the dish, the first thing we need to do is bake the dough so that we get small balls that will be almost hollow inside. To do this, cover the baking sheet with baking paper. After that, if you have a confectionery syringe on hand, transfer the dough from the bowl to this inventory. Using a syringe, we spread small portions of the dough sheet at a distance from each other, since in the process of preparation the eclairs will increase in size. For this amount of test should be approximately 2 baking sheets. Attention: if you don’t have a confectionery syringe, do not be discouraged, as you can also use a dessert spoon. To do this, also spread the dough on a baking sheet, but at the same time each time we lower the spoon into the water so that the dough does not stick to the inventory. So, put the baking tray with eclairs in the oven and bake at temperature 180 ° C until a brownish crust forms on the baking surface. And you can check the readiness of eclairs by tasting one to taste. The crust should be quite thick, crispy and well baked on all sides. Otherwise, the eclairs will fall off as soon as we get them out of the oven, and the dish, respectively, will also fail. After preparing the dough, leave the baking to cool to room temperature.

Step 5: prepare the cream.

We break the eggshell with a knife, and pour the squirrel with the yolk into a bowl. Important: the container in which we will prepare the cream must be completely dry and clean. After that, add cottage cheese, soft butter (and for this we just get it out of the refrigerator in advance), sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Attention: it is very important not to overdo it with an ingredient such as vanillin, otherwise the cream will be bitter. And now, using a tablespoon, we well rub all the components until a homogeneous mass is formed. After that, beat everything with a blender so that grains of cottage cheese disappear in the mixture. Everything, the cream is ready!

Step 6: Cooking the Mriya Cake

If you have the same confectionery syringe on hand, pour the cream into it and after that - fill the eclairs with the curd mass using this inventory. If you did not have such a syringe, do not be discouraged. To do this, lay out each eclair on a cutting board and use a knife to make a small incision along the middle of the cake. Fill the eclair with a dessert spoon with cream and transfer the finished baking to a serving dish. But we are not in a hurry to serve cakes to the table, but put them to stand in the refrigerator for a minimum for 1 hour.

Step 7: serve the Mriya cake.

After the allotted time, we take the Mriya cakes from the refrigerator and can serve them with hot tea or coffee to the table. Baking is very tasty and aromatic. The cream, when the cakes were infused in the refrigerator, froze, and the dough became softer and more tender. From the calculation of the ingredients indicated in the recipe, it turns out about 20 pieces eclairs, and this is enough to treat relatives and friends with such delicious pastries. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - After making the Mriya cake, you can also sprinkle the dish with icing sugar or melt the chocolate to your taste and pour eclairs on it.

- - You can also put raisins or pieces of dried apricots in the cream. Only in this case, if you use a confectionery syringe, be sure to use the equipment with a large hole so that dried fruits do not get stuck in the inventory.

- - For the preparation of delicious air eclairs, be sure to use only the highest grade flour, fine grinding and a proven brand.

- - In order to avoid the risk of salmonella infection, before using eggs, rinse the ingredient well under running hot water to flush dirt and possible infectious bacillus from the shell.
