Buchty (Czech sugar buns)

Are you in USA? Don’t have “tvaroh”, don’t have regular “mouka” and have cravings for buchty? Check out this recipe that is adapted to US measurements. You will be surprised by the results ;o)

Never had buchty? It is a Czech simple pastry made from basic ingredients flour, milk, eggs, butter and sugar. You can fill them with different type of fillings. I like the cheese filling with raisins which I am going to use.

Mommy's baked sweet rice dish

In Czech we call it “Rýžový nákyp”. Just so you know in case you talk with somebody from Czech. 🙂

As I got this recipe from my mom in European measurements I tried to adjust it to US measurements. In brackets I left the Czech way. Here is what we need.

  • 3/4 liter of milk
  • 1 cup of rice (20 Dg)
  • 3 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons of UNSALTED butter (10 Dg) Leave the butter outside on the counter when you start cooking the rice so it will be little bit softer and easier to process it.
  • tiny bit of butter you have left for coating the baking dish
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar (10 Dg) If you do it in deka gramms, just divide the sugar into 2 halves (1 half to mix with yolks and 1 half mix with whites)
  • breadcrumbs for coating the baking dish
  • can of peaches or apricots
  • lemon zest
  • pinch of salt

Black bean burgers

I got this recipe from my colleague Laura Higgins about 4-5 months ago. Every time I met Laura she would ask me “Did you do the burgers or not?” And I always said “No”. Tomorrow eventually I can tell “Yes, I did it”. 🙂 I am going to use this as a proof of my today’s cooking. I know that Laura would be happy to see that I even put together a little manual for many other bean lovers. 🙂

Those burgers are unbelievably easy to do. As a healthy choice you can have them only with some salad instead of in a bun.

All needed ingredients: 2 Cans of Black beans, Mayo, Breadcrumbs, Ground Cumin, Dried Oregano, Cayenne Pepper, Fresh cilantro, Oil, Hamburger Buns
