    Red Velvet Cake

    redvelvetcake - Polling 4 Cooking Compitition march 2009

    Ingredients :


    2 1/2 cups (250 grams) sifted cake flour

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    2 tablespoons (15 grams) Dutch-processed cocoa powder

    1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature

    1 1/2 cups (300 grams) granulated white sugar

    2 large eggs

    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk

    2 tablespoons liquid red food coloring

    1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    Cream Cheese Frosting:

    1 1/2 (360 ml) cups heavy whipping cream

    1 - 8 ounce (227 grams) cream cheese, room temperature

    1 - 8 ounce (227 grams) tub of Mascarpone cheese, room temperature

    3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    1 cup (115 grams) confectioners' (icing or powdered) sugar, sifted

    Instructions :

    Red Velvet Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Butter two - 9 inch (23 cm) round cake pans and line the bottoms of the pans with parchment paper. Set aside.

    In a mixing bowl sift together the flour, salt, and cocoa powder. Set aside.

    In bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until soft (about 1-2 minutes). Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the vanilla extract and beat until combined.

    In a measuring cup whisk the buttermilk with the red food coloring. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and buttermilk, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.

    In a small cup combine the vinegar and baking soda. Allow the mixture to fizz and then quickly fold into the cake batter.

    Working quickly, divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans and smooth the tops with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25 - 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean. Cool the cakes in their pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Place a wire rack on top of the cake pan and invert, lifting off the pan. Once the cakes have completely cooled, wrap in plastic and place the cake layers in the freezer for at least an hour. (This is done to make filling and frosting the cakes easier.)

    Cream Cheese Frosting: In your food processor, or with a hand mixer, process the cream cheese and mascarpone cheese until smooth. Add the vanilla and confectioners sugar and process until smooth. Transfer this mixture to a large mixing bowl.

    Then, in the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. With a large spatula, gently but quickly fold a little of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture to lighten it. Then fold in the remaining whipped cream, in two stages. If the frosting is not thick enough to spread, cover and place in the refrigerator for an hour, or until it is firm enough to spread.

    Assemble: With a serrated knife, cut each cake layer in half, horizontally. You will now have four cake layers. Place one of the cake layers, top of the cake facing down, onto your serving platter. Spread the cake layer with a layer of frosting. Place another layer of cake on top of the frosting and continue to frost and stack the cake layers. Frost the top and sides of the cake. Can garnish the cake with sweetened or unsweetened coconut

    Makes one - 9 inch (23 cm) four layer cake.

    Ingredients:

    2 cups (260 grams) all-purpose flour

    1/4 teaspoon (2 grams) salt

    1 cup (2 sticks) (226 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

    1/2 cup (60 grams) powdered (confectioners or icing) sugar

    1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract

    Instructions :


    Shortbreads: In a separate bowl whisk the flour with the salt. Set aside.

    In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter until smooth (about 1 minute). Add the sugar and beat until smooth (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. Gently stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated. Flatten the dough into a disk shape, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill the dough for at least an hour.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) with the rack in the middle of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

    On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to 1/4 inch (.5 cm) thick. Cut into rounds or whatever shapes you wish using lightly floured cookie cutter. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This will firm up the dough so the cookies will maintain their shape when baked. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly brown. Cool on rack.

    Makes about 20 shortbread cookies.

    Pavlova Recipe

    pavo - Polling 4 Cooking Compitition march 2009



    Ingredients:


    Meringue Cake:
    4 large (120 grams) egg whites

    1 cup (200 grams) superfine (castor) sugar
    1 teaspoon white vinegar
    1/2 tablespoon cornstarch (corn flour)
    Topping:
    1 cup (240 ml) heavy whipping cream
    1 1/2 tablespoons (20 grams) granulated white sugar
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    Fresh fruit - kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, passion fruit, peaches, pineapple, or other fruit of your choice



    Pavlova is a meringue, and it is important when making any meringue that the egg whites reach maximum volume, so make sure your mixing bowl and whisk are clean and free of grease. Since we need just the whites of the eggs, the eggs will need to be separated. It is easier to do this while the eggs are still cold. Once separated, cover the egg whites and let them come to room temperature before using (about 30 minutes). Cover and refrigerate the egg yolks for another use. I like to use superfine sugar (castor) when making this meringue as it dissolves faster into the egg whites than regular granulated white sugar. You can make your own by processing 1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar in your food processor until very fine, about 30 - 60 seconds. Once the egg whites and sugar form stiff peaks it is time to gently fold in the cornstarch and vinegar. Adding these two ingredients will give the Pavlova a crust that is dry and crisp, with a soft marshmallow-like interior.Australian Stephanie Alexander in her excellent book "The Cook's Companion" gives us a few pointers on how to tell a good Pavlova, "if syrupy droplets form on the surface of the meringue, you'll know you have overcooked it; liquid oozing from the meringue is a sign of undercooking". So it is best to cook the meringue in a slow oven and then to turn off the oven and let it cool slowly.
    The Pavlova can be made several days in advance of serving, if it is stored in a cool dry place, in an airtight container. A Pavlova is usually served with softly whipped cream and fresh fruit. Because of the sweetness of the meringue I like to offset the sweetness with tart flavored fruits. Passion fruit, kiwi, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are some of my personal favorites. Try to place the whipped cream and fruit on the meringue shortly before serving as the meringue will immediately start to soften and break down from the moisture of the cream and fruit.


    Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until the outside is dry and takes on a very pale cream color. Turn the oven off, leave the door slightly ajar, and let the meringue cool completely in the oven. (The outside of the meringue will feel firm to the touch, if gently pressed, but as it cools you will get a little cracking and you will see that the inside is soft and marshmallowy.)


    The cooled meringue can be made and stored in a cool dry place, in an airtight container, for a few days.


    Just before serving gently place the meringue onto a serving plate. Whip the cream in your electric mixer, with the whisk attachment, until soft peaks form. Sweeten with the sugar and vanilla and then mound the softly whipped cream into the center of the meringue. Arrange the fruit randomly, or in a decorative pattern, on top of the cream. Serve immediately as this dessert does not hold for more than a few hours.
