I don’t know if you made ‘papaleașcă’ aka mud as a child, it’s extremely simple: some sand, some water, mix and you’re done, you can eat! 😛 😀
A similar principle applies to this simple cake, except that instead of sand you mix what you find in the fridge. 😀 More precisely, leftover fruits and a dough made quickly, with a fork. 🙂
Surprisingly, I didn’t invent this cake myself. 🙂 Just the name, to be honest I can’t remember its name. I found the recipe many years ago in one of my mother’s recipe books. I made it quite often because it is versatile, it can be made with any fruit and the dough does not require exact quantities, it is made from the eyes.
It’s basically a kind of crumble, with a layer of fruit over which a dough is poured.
That being said, what did I put in the fruit muddy cake. The layer of fruit was about 5 plums and about two nectarines, washed, peeled and cut into slices or cubes. Put them in a saucepan or pan – what you have – mixed with a little sugar and spices. If you use sweet and ripe fruits, you can skip the sugar. 🙂 Usual spices, cinnamon or cardamom or vanilla, etc., depending on what you like and what you feel that rhymes with the fruits. If the fruit is extremely juicy, you can sprinkle a little flour or starch, as in the tart filling – it will absorb the juice. You can also put small cubes of butter, I chose to put only fruits.
If you want a sweeter and slightly caramelized version, then grease the pan with butter, sprinkle with sugar and then put the sliced fruits. I preferred the simplest and most dietary option. 🙂
Dough: this time I used an egg, lightly beaten with a fork and mixed with a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of sour cream (you can put yogurt), flour and some water, plus some grated butter. It came out of the consistency of thick pancake batter. There were exact quantities and ingredients in the original recipe, if I come across it I will update the article. 🙂 I know for sure that for me this was always a dough based on yogurt leftovers from the fridge, which I mixed with what I had. 🙂
Pour the dough over the fruits so that it covers them. Bake at the medium heat for approx. 30 minutes or until the dough is done (you can test it with a toothpick).
Two portions came out. Good to eat, hot or cold with a black coffee. 🙂 I refrained from eating them both on the same day. :)))
The result can’t be a disaster! 😛
