This is an easy to make and just to mix pie recipe without added flour and sugar. With lots of fruits and almond it will not only be delicious but also a healthy sweet threat. With all steps, it only takes 40 min to make.
I have renewed a bit a regular carrot cake recipe. I am sure I will re-bake this recipe a couple more times as it is really delicious, even on the second or the third day for a good breakfast.
In my childhood we used to eat this tasty, filling and cheap dish after a good soup at my grandma’s. I watched my grandma making the dough and then she did involve me in the formation of the dumplings after she rolled them out. Most of the recipes on the internet also have an egg added as an ingredient but I have learnt from grandma that it needs only cooked potatoes, flour and salt that makes this dumplings. Some people also add a bit of baking powder too, it brings them a little higher. We like to eat it pure only with some salt however it can also be a nice side dish with a thick beef stew or with roasts too.
I got to love hash brown when I was in the USA. They serve it for breakfast with eggs and bacon and sausage with some toast. Hash brown is basically grinded raw potatoes, what they usually bake in the oven. – But you can make it in a pot as well on the cooker. They bake it nice golden brown and cut it up for the serving. They normally season it with salt and pepper only. I have made it this time with a twist. I decided to add eggs and bacon to the potatoes and serve it together. This is how I made our Sunday breakfast and we had not even a toast with it. It was filling alone.
We hardly eat any dairy products and we do not drink any milk, I only use milk for to make a dough with yeast. However, time to time, we like to eat cottage cheese and sour cream coming from the countryside, it is much tastier and fatter than the ones you can buy in a store. If my mom surprises us with sour cream and cottage cheese from a village near Gyöngyös, my home-town, I like to make Hungarian style cottage cheese pasta with bacon and sour cream, dill-cottage cheese sweet pastry, cottage cheese strudel, or sweet cottage cheese cream for the pancake or salty one that I am going to share with you now. We eat the salty cottage cheese cream with toast bread, this time I served it with seasoned avocado (salt, pepper and lime juice). It is a nice combination of three for breakfast, lunch or for dinner and last but not least it is also healthy. Avocado is a great source of vitamin A, B, C, E and D. The oils in their have a beneficial effect on our body, e.g. it helps to keep our cholesterol balanced and also keeps our skin younger. Cottage cheese has a good level of calcium in there. And for those with liver sicknesses, it helps with their amino acids level. I had learnt to make a „kőrözött” (the Hungarian name for the above dish) from my father as a child. So making it, brings back nice memories.
Summer rainy days make me bake with yeast. I love the smell of the dough baking in the oven. So these days I have to bake. I had in my green garden fresh dill and in my fridge I had fat cottage cheese. So on such an afternoon, I took the opportunity and baked a yeast sweet bread with dill & cottage cheese for my little family I was expecting that afternoon. It is excellent with tea, coffee or any other refreshment. It is a filling tea-time food. Also good for breakfast.
Cherry pie: This is a heavenly meeting of sour and sweet!
