It's one of those Fridays again. Challos are done and looking good, the rest of the meals for Shabbos are also ready, but I need a sweet touch to the menu. I need to use the available ingredients, and to do it fast, in less than 3 hours. What should I do? Just enjoy the pleasure of living in the 21st century and search the easiest recipe on the Internet.
I did find an interesting idea, an Apple Bourbon cake by Levana Kirschenbaum, but I don't have most of the ingredients. In such cases, my creating mind is working fast and well to find a solution.
The result was my following combination of ingredients:
- 4 big eggs
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1 cup and 1/2 brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon saffron backing powder
- 3 cups flour, all-purpose
- 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
- 150 gr. poppy seeds
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
While mixing the ingredients, one by one, I roasted some 150 gr. almonds for the cover.
Baked in the oven for around 1 hour, at 250C. Maybe the cover was a bit burned out, but loved the crunchy almonds and the crust so it was good for me.
To be served with coffee and tea. The quantity can hardly make happy 4 hungry citizens.
The total preparation time is of maximum 1 hr. 15.
