Strawberry jam – 5 different choices – without sugar

- Comments Off on Strawberry jam – 5 different choices – without sugar -

We have already persevered a good amount of strawberries with my husband this year, of course all of them are sugar free. We have made natural strawberry jam and marmalade too. There are some that we seasoned with basil, ginger, vanilla and lemon, rhubarb or cherry. We sweetened all with xylitol and used pectin to make it jelly. You can enjoy the sun in a jar even in winter in a healthy way.

Lemon-mascarpone sponge cake with fresh strawberries

- Comments Off on Lemon-mascarpone sponge cake with fresh strawberries -

There are a few small tricks that is worth to stick to if we like to bake a high-rising sponge. We should definitely bolt the flour and not only once. We should do it only with the flour and then bolt it with the flour and the baking powder too. The egg white should never have egg yellow inside when we separate them because otherwise we cannot make a hard whip that we need. We should always add a pinch of salt to the egg white before we start to beat it. When we pour the sponge mix in the baking pot we should shake it with a fast movement so that the air can leave, and our sponge is not airy. We should never open the oven door during baking our sponge because otherwise it will not rise. We can either bake it in a cake form or a square pot. Anyways, we can create a great light-tasting holiday cake from this even for Easter. I have decorated my cake with strawberries but we can decorate it with some other fresh fruits too (berries mostly).
