A dish that can decorate any holiday table - a cake. It is not necessary that it be sweet. As the latest experiments and achievements of home cooks show, a cake is a way to decorate a dish. In appearance, it can resemble a sweet cake, with the same attractive pattern, but not from sweet cream or chocolate, but from ordinary vegetables or other gastronomic products that are not related to the category of dessert dishes.
Very useful in terms of valuable vitamin and mineral composition, the product is pork liver. In addition, its price captivates with its affordability even for people with a minimum level of income. True, pork liver contains more fat than beef, chicken or turkey, and therefore it is not so dietary. But this deficiency can be corrected by adding to it low calorie and cholesterol foods. Let's see how housewives, tempted in this question, offer to do this.
Liver cake: pork liver recipes - basic technological principles
To begin with, in the usual traditional sense, a cake is a festive cake consisting of cakes, a filling (cream), decorated with the same cream, icing, and all sorts of decorative elements. For the cake, the basis of different types of dough is baked, and then the prepared cakes are collected, spreading them, separately prepared cream, and decorated. But there are also many recipes for sweet cakes, for which it is not necessary to bake cakes: such desserts are prepared in a cold way, for example, jelly cakes, “broken glass” desserts.
For vegetable, fish and meat cakes, you can also use all of these methods.
Pork liver does not require prolonged heat treatment, so it is enough to put it out in the pan, and then prepare a tender pate, which will replace the cream in a savory cake. A savory loaf, a loaf of bread or a loaf of bread can serve as a basis for a cake with liver pate. Of course, everyone has different tastes, but I must say that bakery products made from wheat flour are more suitable for dishes from the liver. The liver goes well with buckwheat flour, but it does not contain gluten. Therefore, in the manufacture of cakes (pancakes) with buckwheat flour liver, a little starch or wheat flour should be added for viscosity. For the liver cake any preparation options are acceptable. It is important to choose the best combination of products. It all depends on the taste and imagination of the chef. Unsweetened cakes are decorated, usually with the same products that are used in cooking. Wonderful material for decorating meat cake - vegetables: they are in harmony with meat products, from the point of view of proper nutrition. In addition, almost all vegetables, raw, boiled or pickled, are easy to curly cut. Some simple techniques, even without the use of special tools, in their own kitchen can master any housewife.
The cake must be decorated, especially when it comes to preparing a festive dish. If you don’t have enough time or you can’t cut a chrysanthemum out of a carrot, do not be upset: decorate your work with grated cheese, egg yolk, chopped nuts or greens, and add one or two of any large elements in the center of the composition. This may be a slice of lemon, halves of eggs or tomatoes, mushrooms. All the listed products are most often used in the preparation of dishes from pork liver.
