Method of cooking curd muffins with cardamom and candied
We mix in a deep bowl the fat cottage cheese rubbed through a sieve with eggs. Small eggs will need 3 pieces, large enough two.
Pour sugar in a bowl and a small pinch of fine salt to balance the flavors.
Melt butter, pour in sugar with cottage cheese and eggs, mix the ingredients until a homogeneous mass, no need to whisk, sufficiently thoroughly mix until the grains of sugar are dissolved.
Now pour the semolina, corn starch, wheat flour and baking powder. Knead the dough.
Instead of baking powder, you can add 1 \ 2 teaspoon of regular baking soda. Since the cottage cheese is a fermented milk product, when the dough is heated in the oven, the soda will mix with the acid and the baking will rise well.
Cut candied pineapples into cubes. Soak dark raisins for 15 minutes in hot water, dry them on a napkin. Boxes of cardamom open, we get seeds. Pound the seeds in a mortar. Add candied fruit, cardamom and raisins to the dough.
Candied pineapples are the most common addition to pastry among confectioners, but pineapple can be replaced with something more exotic to your liking.
The molds are greased with a drop of vegetable oil. Fill the silicone molds with dough on 3 \ 4 volumes, put on a baking sheet.
Put the silicone molds on some thick metal stand - a cast iron skillet, a thick baking tray so that the heat is distributed evenly. From the usual grill, which is in each oven, will remain strips.
The oven is heated to 175 degrees Celsius. We bake cottage cheese muffins for 20-25 minutes. Readiness check bamboo toothpick.
We lubricate the top of muffins with honey - a confectionery dressing adheres well to it, decorate it with sweet stars or snowflakes.
By the way, instead of honey you can use apricot jam, this is a classic way to make baking shiny and appetizing.
