Three-layered jelly "Lakomka"
If you do not know how to make jelly, justread this recipe. All actions are very simple and straightforward, so even if you are not a great cook and do not cook too often, you can easily master this dessert. Ingredients:
- one packing of gelatin
- water - one and a half cups
- 600 grams of sour cream
- one and a half cup of granulated sugar
- 100 grams of any jam (we recommend raspberry, strawberry or currant)
- one teaspoon of cocoa
- Vanillin and citric acid - for your taste
- 1/3 small spoon of instant coffee
- two eggs
Cooking method: This dessert consists of three different layers, differing in color. The dish turns out to be insanely tasty and beautiful in appearance, so it can be proudly put on a festive table or prepared for a child for a birthday. So, to begin with, pour into a bowl a half cup of boiled and cooled water and pour gelatin into it. After 60 minutes, heat it on a low heat, stirring occasionally. When the product completely dissolves, remove it from the plate and pour into three cups, tightly covering each lid or plate. This is necessary in order to gelatin not frozen, but remained in a liquid state. The first stage is the preparation of the lower layer of jelly. Stir half a glass of sugar with sour cream (you need 200 grams) when it dissolves, add cocoa powder and coffee, and then citric acid and vanillin. Thoroughly mix all ingredients with a spoon and fill them with one cup of gelatin. Whisk all until smooth and pour into a prepared container. If you want the dish to look beautiful, use a special transparent crockery. Some sources suggest to lubricate the walls of the dishes with a small amount of vegetable oil, but we do not recommend this, since it is possible to spoil the dish with a sunflower after-taste. Put the form on the top shelf in the refrigerator, but in any case not in the freezer. The time of hardening of the jelly is half an hour or 40 minutes. By the way, that the mass turned out without lumps, we recommend that you dissolve coffee in one or two tablespoons of warm water, so it will be much easier to achieve uniformity. While the first layer is solidifying, prepare the second layer. To do this, combine 200 grams of sour cream, ½ cup of sugar and two eggs, pre-whipped with a whisk. Sprinkle a little citric acid and a pinch of vanillin, then add the gelatin from the second cup. After carefully mix everything and pour into the creamer over the first coffee layer, which should be well frozen. Put the dishes in the refrigerator, but keep in mind that this time the jelly will freeze longer than the first time (about an hour and a half). You have very little left. The third layer consists of the remaining sour cream, sugar and jam. As for the last product, you will only need fruit juice, so you have to get rid of the berries. And if the jam is too thick, dilute it with a little warm water - in the end you should get half a glass of sweet syrup. The citric acid and vanillin are not necessary to add to the jelly, act on your own. So, having combined all the above ingredients, put gelatin into them, stir well, pour into the creamer over the second layer of jelly and put it to freeze. The weight will seize in half an hour, however it is only from above, inside everything will be still too liquid. Therefore, keep the dessert in the refrigerator for at least two hours. If you are preparing a dessert for home use with your family, then it is not necessary to use kremanki - you can cook a dish in a shallow salad bowl, and cut it immediately before serving. Jelly quickly melts at room temperature, so, taking it out of the refrigerator, do not delay the pleasure for later, and proceed to the meal. Bon Appetit! Finally we will give one more little advice. If you do not have jam, then prepare the third layer from the same products as the first, but instead of coffee and cocoa, use fresh beet juice (about two tablespoons). The mass will turn out to be very colorful and bright.
