2014 in review – THANK YOU!!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Prajiturica economica / The economic cake

Cea mai simpla reteta de prajitura pe care o cunosc. Prima oara am gustat in copilarie cand o colega de serviciu de-a mamei mele ne-a servit cu aceasta prajitura. Cu siguranta oricine o poate face, chiar si un barbat mai stangaci hotarat sa-si surprinda iubita sau prietenii. O sa ii zic simplu, prajitura economica.

praji biscuit

Avem nevoie de:

900 gr biscuiti populari

1,5 l lapte

3 plicuri de budinca ( daca doriti de culori si arome diferite)

cateva fructe la alegere

250 ml frisca lichida

Procedeul este cat se poate de usor. Asezati biscuitii in tava de copt unul langa altul. Pregatiti prima budinca conform instructiunilor de pe plic. Odata ce au iesit aburii din budinca fierbite o turnati peste stratul de biscuiti din tava si o intindeti uniform.


Asezati peste ea un alt strat de biscuiti si puneti la foc a doua budinca. Repetati procedeul de mai devreme si puneti a doua budinca peste biscuiti dupa care asezati al treilea strat de biscuiti.


In sfarsit puneti a treia budinca pe foc. O turnati apoi peste al treilea strat de biscuiti din tava si peste ea un ultim strat de biscuiti. Daca mai este calda crema o lasati 30 min la racit la temperatura camerei si o bagati apoi la rece la frigider.

Se poate servi dupa 5 ore. Nu e nevoie de sirop pt ca biscuitii se vor inmuia de la crema si de la temperatura joasa din frigider.

Inainte se servire decorati-o cu frisca batuta si fructe.

Pofta mare!

English version:

The easiest cake recipe that I know. The first time I tasted this cake in childhood when a colleague of-my mother served us with this cake. Absolutely anyone can make it, even the clumsiest man decided to surprise his girlfriend or his friends. I will call it simple, the economic cake.
We need:
900gr of the simplest biscuits
1.5 l milk
3 puddings (if you want they can be of different colors and flavors)
some fruit of your choice
250 ml liquid cream
The process is quite easy. Place the biscuits on baking tray one next to the other. Prepare the first pudding as per the instructions from the back of the package. Once the boiled pudding is out of the steams pour the pudding over the layer of biscuits in the tray and spread it evenly.
Place another layer over biscuits over the pudding and start preparing the second pudding. Repeat the process of earlier and put your second pudding over the third layer of biscuits.
Finally start preparing the third pudding. When ready pour it over the third layer of crackers and over it a last layer of biscuits. If it’s still warm because of the cream, leave it for 30 minutes to cool at the room temperature and then put it in the refrigerator to cool even better.

It can be served after 5 hours. No need for any syrup as the biscuits will soften due to the cream and the low temperature in the refrigerator.
Before serving decorate it with whipped cream and fruit.
