Here's a link to a Batterburg Cake recipe, since that was being discussed.

Grandma Solinski's pierogies receipe!

6 cups flour
2 whole eggs
2 tablespoons salt
2 cups water

Mix well and knead dough. Cover with large mixing bowl for about half an hour. This makes it easier to roll with a rolling pin. Use a glass to cut out circles afer rolling flat. Stuff with desired filling and pinch tight using additional flour when necessary. Throw into boiling water quickly as exposure to air hardens the dough. You know they are ready to eat when they float. Fry in a frying pan in bacon fat until brown.......delicious!

Pierogi can be stuffed with almost anything, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese and potato,meat, cabbage and/or sauerkraut, even prunes, blueberries and other fruit. They are usually eaten with sour cream. However, you have to addd suger to the sour cream when you fill them with fruit.

Choccy Cake

• 2 Eggs (weigh these and use that weight for the following ingredients)
• Self Raising Flour/Ground Almonds (half of each to make up the weight)
• Margarine
• Sugar

Then add

• 1 tablespoon of Cocoa powder
• 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
• ½ teaspoon Baking Powder

Mix all of these together (I tend to add a splash of milk to loosen up the mixture) and put into a greased and lined small cake tin.
Put into a preheated oven (180◦ C). Once the mix has gone in break up about 50grams of plain chocolate with a rolling pin and then add to the mixture (this will melt and run through the cake whilst it’s cooking).

Cook for around 45 minutes (I tend to check it after about 35 minutes just to see how its doing)

Once it’s cooked allow it to cool completely before adding the topping.

Topping

• 200ml Double Cream
• 220/230 grams Plain Chocolate (broken up)

Heat the cream until it’s just about to boil. Remove from the heat and add the plain chocolate and allow this mixture to stand for about 5 minutes. Once the chocolate has melted start beating the mixture until it starts to thicken, stop when it’s thick enough to still run but not run too far. Cut the cake in half and apply this topping to the bottom half. Put the top layer back on and using a palette knife apply the rest of the topping. Best to refrigerate once this has been done as the topping will set better.
