Prajitura cu gem / Jam cake

Va spuneam intr-una din relatarile trecute ca unele lucruri le-am invatat de la bunica, altele de la nasa de botez si altele de la mama mea. Printre lucrurile invatate de la mama se numara si o prajitura foarte usor de facut, care nu necesita altceva decat putina atentie la preparare. Se numeste prajitura cu gem si bicarbonat si se poate face in maxim 1 ora. Acum 3 zile a fost duminica Floriilor si am avut prieteni in vizita. Nu puteam sa nu ii astept cu ceva dulce, asa ca pe ultima suta de metrii am luat din frigider ingredientele si gata am inceput treaba. Norocul meu, tocmai cand ei sunau sa ne spuna ca au ajuns, am oprit si eu focul la aragaz.

Asadar avem nevoie de urmatoarele:

  • 2 oua
  • 300 gr faina
  • esente pt gust
  • 4 linguri de gem
  • Bicarbonat de sodiu
  • Cam 7 linguri de apa
  • Si 7 linguri de ulei

Procedeul este foarte simplu. Se amesteca initial ouale cu bicarbonatul de sodiu stins in otet, putina sare, esenta, apa , uleiul si gemul de fructe.


Apoi adaugati faina pana obtineti o pasta care curge. Ungeti tava de copt cu putin ulei si presarati faina, sau ma simplu puneti hartie de copt pe ea. Turnati compozitia in tava.


Focul de la aragaz nu trebuie sa fie puternic, ci de intensitate medie. La prajitura asta puteti adauga si nuci. Cand e gata, bateti 3 albusuri de ou cu 2 linguri de zahar pana obtineti o spuma tare si pune-ti-o peste prajitura, sa stea inca 5 minute in cuptor.


Aceasta glazura de bezea poate fi inlocuita cu o glazura clasica de ciocolata.


Pofta mare!

English version:

I was telling you in my other posts about things I’ve learned from my grandmother, others from my godmother and others from my mom. Among the things learned from my mother I include an easy to bake cake that doesn’t require anything else but some attention during the preparation process. It’s called jam cake with sodium bicarbonate and can be done within one hour. 3 days ago was the Palm Sunday for us, the Orthodox, and we had friends coming over. I couldn’t leave the day pass without something sweet to bake for them, so on the last minutes I grabbed the ingredients from the fridge and got ready to work. Luckily, just when they rang to tell us that they had arrived, I turned off the fire to my stove.
So we need the following:

  • 2 eggs
  • 300 gr flour
  • essences for flavor
  • 4 tablespoons of jam
  • Sodium bicarbonate
  • About 7 tablespoons water
  • And 7 tablespoons oil

The process is very simple. Mix the whole eggs with sodium bicarbonate initially quenched in vinegar, a pinch of salt, essence, water, oil and fruit jam. Then add the flour to get a paste that is flowing. Grease the baking pan with a some oil and sprinkle with flour, or I simply put parchment paper on it. Pour the mix into the pan. The fire of the stove should not be strong, but to have medium intensity. To the cake you can add nuts as well. When it’s ready, beat 3 egg whites with 2 tablespoons of sugar until you get hard foam and put it over your cake and leave it to sit in the oven for another 5 minutes. This frosting may be replaced with a classic chocolate one. Enjoy!
