Shavuot is the holiday that celebrates the giving of the ‘Torah’ at Mount Sinai to the people of Israel. To celebrate the holiday, It is customary to eat dairy product’s hence many wonderfulness cheeses. Naturally, this week the ‘Roses Alpha Bakers’ baked Stilton baby cakes. I have never tried Stilton cheese, and once I tried it, I absolutely loved the crumbly and creamy texture that melts in your mouth. In addition, it has a unique nutty aroma that is just addictive. Making the cake was quick, and came with very clear instructions. To make the cake, I decided to use a 12 inch tart pan. Besides a couples of delays such as severe storms, tornado’s and no electricity, the reviews were, “wow, I can’t stop eating it”,also, “what a pleasant surprise, the blue cheese is right on point”, along with,“a well balanced cake, just the right amount of cheese to go with the crust” and “It will be great with a good steak”. Here is how I made the cake.
Toast walnut in the oven for 7 minutes, grind till fine in a food processor and than press the walnut to the bottom of the tart pan.
In a kitchen aid stir all dry ingredients till combined.
add cream cheese and continue to mix.
‘mash together blue-cheese and sour cream’.
add the blue-cheese mixture to he batter and continue to mix.
add the eggs and beat till the batter will be like sour cream.once ready, pour the batter to the pan and bake for 45 minutes.
Chill cake on a second wire rack, and transfer to the refrigerator for at minimum of 4 hours.
well,some of us had to try the cake prior of un-molding the cake, from the pan…..:-)
Enjoy and have a happy Shavuot all !
