Brandy and chocolate torte

A torte is a cake made primarily with eggs, sugar, and ground nuts instead of flour. Variations may include bread crumbs as well as some flour. For this cake I used some ground butter biscuits. I really loved megingue type cake and it's really great with some cream or ice-cream and a cup of fresh coffee.

What we need:

4 eggs
200gr sugar
300gr dark chocolate
6 tbsp of brandy
50 gr ground butter biscuits or digestives
butter for greasing the cake tin
cacao

What we have to do:

1. Pour some water into a pot and put a bowl on it. Add your chocolate and put on a heat. Let the chocolate slowly melt. Then mix in your brandy.
2. Preheat the oven 160C.
3. Seperate egg yoks from the whites. Whisk the egg yoks until creamy and add your ground biscuits, then pour in a bit cooled chocolate.
4. Whisk your egg whites until the shape peaks and start adding your sugar, a spoon at a time. You with have shiny meringue.
5. Incorporate the meringue into chocolate mixture carefully. Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and put into the oven for 35-40 minutes. Then turn the heat off and şet your torte cool in the oven for 1 hour.
6. Leave the torte to cool completely before unmoulding. Then sprinkle with some cacao and serve. Enjoy!

Receptas Lietuviskai - Brendzio ir Sokolado torta


Torta ( torte)- tai pyragas gaminamas tik is kiausiniu, cukraus ir maltu riesutu. Kartais vietoj riesutu naudojami duonos trupineliai ar siek tiek miltu. Siame recepte naudojau maltus sviestinius sausainius. Trumpai tariant, si karta gavosi labai jau sokoladinis morengas su kietu pavirsiumi ir minkstuciu vidumi. Puikiai tinka valgyti su grietinele ar ledai bei puodeliu sviezios kavos.

Reikia:
4 kiausiniu
200gr cukraus
300gr juodo sokolado
50gr trapiu sausainiu
siek tiek sviesto formai istepti
6 saukstu brendzio ar likeriuko ar amareto

Gaminame:
1. Pirmiausia ant puodo su vandeniu uzdekite dubeneli su sulauzytu sokoladu ir kaitinkite kol istirps. Kol tirspta supilkite brendziuka ir maisykite kol visiskai istirps.
2. Dabar jau galite ijungti orkaite 160C.
3. Kol kaista, atskirkite balymus nuo tryniu. Trynius paplakite ir sumaisykite su smulkintais sausainiais ( blenderyje susmulkinau). Tada imaisykite truputi atvesinta tirpinta sokolada, gerai ismaisykite.
4. Isplakite baltymus iki putu,ir po truputi dekite cukru ir plakite. Gausis blizganti morengu mase. Isplakus imaisykite i sokolado mase. Po truputi dekite morengus ir letai maisykite. Ismaisius, dekite torta i orkaite ir kepkite 35-40 min, iskepus ir isjungus orkaite leiskite pyragiukui atvesti neisimant is orkaites.
5. Atvesus apiberkite kakava ir prasom, ragaujam su ledais, plakta grietinele ar kavos puodeliu. Kepant virsus gali siek tiek suskilti, bet tai gerai, virsus turi buti sausai kietas, o vidus buna minkstas morengas. Skanaus!
