Features biscuit biscuit
dough is prepared from a mixture of eggs, sugar and flour. Sometimes the dough includes sour cream or butter. The secret to the airiness of biscuit – in the strong whipping of yolks and proteins and the subsequent neat mixing of them. For baking, wheat flour of the highest grade and the thinnest grinding is used, before adding to the dough it is necessarily sifted. The dough can be flavoured with essences, add cocoa powder, lemon zest, ground nuts and other ingredients.
Another subtlety is proper biscuit baking. To make it airy and lush, place the prepared dough in a preheated oven. In the first 10 minutes, try not to open the door – in the temperature difference the delicate biscuit will fall, become stiff and flat. The baking time of the product depends on its thickness and varies from 10 to 50 minutes.
Once cooked, the biscuit should cool well. If you plan to soak it with syrup, scorch 6-7 hours. Impregnation of warm biscuit can cause it to break up.
Dough prepared according to this recipe is very tender. Its amount is enough for baking a roll with a filling or a few cakes. Cooking a heated biscuit dough, it is not necessary to separate the yolks from the proteins – the egg mass heated on the water bath is produced voluminous and airy.
You will need:
– 3 eggs;
– 0.5 cup flour;
– 3 tablespoons sugar;
– A pinch of vanillin.
If you want to make the biscuit more crumbly, replace a quarter portion of wheat flour with potato starch.
Scatter the eggs into a small saucepan, pour in the sugar and place the container on the water bath. Heat the mixture to 40-50OS, constantly whipping it with a whisk. Mass should increase 2-3 times. Remove the pan from the water bath, cool the egg mixture to room temperature and pour sifted flour into it with portions. Don’t forget to add vanillin. Pour the finished dough into shapes and bake in an oven preheated to 200oS.
Fill the forms at 2/3 of their volume – while baking the biscuit rises strongly.
Biscuit on sour cream
Try to make another biscuit dough option. The offered amount of products will suffice to prepare a classic three-layer cake with cream.
You will need:
– 6 eggs; – 2 cups wheat flour;
– 1 cup sugar;
– 1 cup sour cream.
Separate the yolks from the proteins and spread them with the sugar until whitewashed. Add the sour cream to the mixture and stir until fully smooth. In a separate utensils, whisk the squirrels. Place them in a yellow/sour cream mass and then pour in the sifted flour. Quickly knead the dough and pour it into moulds.
Together with the flour, 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder or 3 teaspoons of ground nuts can be added to the dough. You’ll get chocolate or nut biscuit.
