Marvellous Green Cake (Spinach Cake)

Hello everyone. Do you like green colour?? green colour drinks like green tea, green colour nuts like pistachio, or what about green cake?? Oh I heard some of you say, a mocha cake, or pistachio cake. Well those are lovely cakes too but what about Spinach cake?? Yes you heard it right. A super duperr delicious spinach cake. Yes a real spongy sweet cake, with lots of cream and etc ….

Maybe some of you are confused and still think about spinach cake کیک اسفناج as spinach pattie as i was confused with fish cake.
So before going to the recipe, let me tell a short funny story. In Iran the term of cake is used to describe cake made with flour, eggs, sugar, honey, cream and ….. but once I was in a restaurant in abroad and I saw fish cake in the menu. I confused, because I had no idea fish cake means something like fish patties. So, I told myself oh my God, fish cake!!! never. I do not like it. Finally I found out what is fishcake. 😁😁

So when I say spinach cake, I mean cake cake with lots of cream and sweetness 🍰🍰 This cake is just stunning. You have to try and will know what I am talking about.

کیک اسفناج

سلام دوستان – آیا از رنگ سبز خوشتون میاد؟؟ مثلن بین نوشیدنی ها چای سبز – ؟؟نظرتون در باره کیک سبز چیه؟؟ منظورم کیک موچا ( چای سبزی) یا کیک پسته نیست – بااینکه این کیک ها هم خیلی خوشمزه هستند ولی نظرتون در مورد کیک اسفناج چیه؟؟ بله درست شنیدید کیک اسفناج

یک کیک زیبا و خوشمزه ی سبزرنگ و کاملن متفاوت با کیک هایی که قبلن امتحان کردید –

حالا قبل از اینکه طرز تهیه رو توضیح بدم یک خاطره بامزه بگم. در کشورهای اروپایی  از کلمه کیک برای کتلت ماهی یا هر کتلت دیگری استفاده میشه و یکبار که در رستوران بودم در بین لیست غذاها دیدم نوشته کیک ماهی😵 !! خیلی تعجب کردم 😲

– تو دلم گفتم اه اه کیک ماهی دیگه چیه ولی بعد متوجه شدم که همون کتلت هست.

حالا در مورد کیک اسفناج هم این کیکی که من درست کردم واقعن کیک کیک هست پر از شیرینی و خامه و با کیک اسفناج که غذا هست فرق داره.

طعم بسیاررررررررررر خوشمزه و بینظیری داره.

مواد لازم

سیصدوبیست گرم آرد

دویست پنجاه گرم اسفناج تازه – آبپزو آبکش شده

دویست و پنجاه گرم شکر سفید

دویست میلی لیتر روغن مایع

پنجاه میلی لیتر خامه سنگین

سه عدد تخم مرغ

یک ق غ عصاره وانیل

شانزده گرم بیکینگ پودر

کمی نمک

مواد لازم برای میانه کیک

پانصد میلی لیتر ویپینگ کریم

هفتادوپنج گرم پودر قند

چهارپنج عدد موز

سه ق غ گردوی خرد شده

طرز تهیه

فر را روی ۱۸۰ درجه سانتیگراد گرم می کنیم

برگ های اسفناج را شسته و داخل یک قابلمه با نصف پیمانه اب میپزیم و سپس اسفناج پخته را داخل آبکش ریخته تا آب اضافی آن خارج شده و خنک شود.

داخل یک‌کاسه اسفناج آبپز شده – خامه و روغن مایع را ریخته و با مخلوط کن به صورت پوره ی یک‌دست در می آوریم. تخم مرغ ها و شکررا هم  در یک ظرف دیگر با همزن برقی مخلوط میکنیم تا به صورت یک مایه روشن در آید. سپس مخلوط تخم مرغ ها – عصاره وانیلبیکینگ پودرو آرد را به مخلوط اسفناج افزوده و همه ی مواد را هم می‌زنیم تا کاملن با هم مخلوط شوند.

داخل سینی فر را با کاغذ روغنی می پوشانیم. مایه کیک را داخل سینی ریخته و در فر قرار می‌دهیم تا به مدت ۲۰۱۵ دقیقه بپزد. در زمانیکه کیک در حال پخت می‌باشد مواد میانی کیک را آماده می کنیم. ابتدا وینپینگ کریم را با پودر قند همزده تا به صورت خامه فرم گرفته در آید.

وقتی کیک آماده شد از داخل فر خارج کرده و سه ق غ شیر سرد را روی تمام سطح کیک می‌ریزیم تا بافت کیک مرطوب باشد. چهار گوشه کیک را مطابق تصاویر زیر برش داده و آن‌ها را به صورت پودر در آورده و کنار میگذاریم برای مرحله آخر.

کیک را داخل ظرف مورد نظرمان قرار می دهیم. نصف خامه آماده شده را روی سطح کیک پخش کرده و روی خامه را با گردوی خرد شده می پوشانیم. سپس موز ها را به صورت طولی برش داده و روی سطح خامه چیده وبا باقیمانده خامه روی موزها را می پوشانیم. در مرحله آخر با خرده های کیک که قبلن آماده کرده بودیم  روی خامه را پوشش داده و مقداری دانه ی انار روی کیک ریخته و آن را برش می دهیم.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
