Nu e vreo surpriza ca imi plac retetele Christinei Tosi – Momofuku Milk Bar. Dupa doua torturi si o portie de fursecuri, iata ca a venit randul unui al treilea tort – de aceasta data cu un ingredient foarte actual, dovleac.

tort Momofuku cu dovleac

E un tort intens aromat nu doar cu dovleac, ci si cu diverse condimente, de la scortisoara, la ghimbir sau nucsoara. Dar ceea ce mi-a placut cel mai mult la acest tort este textura. Blatul pufos, crema fina si firimiturile crocante creeaza un contrast de texturi delicios!

Reteta o respecta in mare pe cea originala, cu mici schimbari ici si colo la cantitatile de zahar si de seminte de dovleac, dar nimic care sa influenteze in vreun fel gustul final al tortului. Ce obtineti in final e un tort stratificat, aromat, cremos si totusi crocant, un tort usor iesit din comun, dar care impresioneaza prin design si gust.

Tort Momofuku cu dovleac

Acest tort Momofuku cu dovleac este diferit, asta-i clar! Aromele si ingredientele folosite sunt dintr-o categorie nu foarte folosita in cofetarie. Dar tocmai asta il face special!

ENGLISH

After two Momofuku cakes and a batch of cookies, it was time to make a third cake, one focusing on a flavor that is trending right now – pumpkin. I’m hooked on Christina Tosi’s recipes lately, but worry not, I will resume regular baking once I get this out of my system. Not that I’m complaining.. her recipes are amazing, easy to follow, texturized and absolutely delicious! And so much fun to make! Making these recipes has allowed me to discover new techniques and become more aware of what different textures can mean to a cake or how different tastes come together into the perfect dessert. It’s food for thought, beyond being a delicious cake to make!

This Momofuku pumpkin pie cake has one main ingredient that is found throughout the layers of the cake – pumpkin – first in the form of a pumpkin puree and second, in the form of pumpkin seeds (pepitas). The pumpkin puree I used was homemade, therefore the flavor was fresh and intense, but canned puree can be used as well. I have to say I fell in love with the sponge cake – never before I made a pumpkin cake that was this fluffy and fragrant. Usually this kind of cakes are moist, but slightly dense. Well, this one is the opposite and it’s definitely a keeper for other occasions too. Plus, the technique used to make the cake is quite interesting and although I had my fare share of doubts at first, now I trust Christina’s recipes more than anything.

I did make a few changes here and there, starting with the fact that I used less pepitas – which happened accidentally because I just bought a smaller bag at the store while the recipe calls for 250g of this delicious stuff. It’s still a bit too much I think, I only used 100g and I found them to add enough texture and taste, but feel free to add more if you make this cake. I also did a few changes to the graham crust crumbs, but nothing that would change the taste of the final cake.

  1. Ador prajiturile cu dovleac, de-aia si imi place atat de mult Halloween-ul, si totusi obisnuiesc sa le cumpar foarte des, in orice sezon. Dar n-am incercat vreodata sa-mi prepar de una singura o prajitura de genul, am incercat doar lucrurile simple. Cred ca ar fi si cazul sa progresez si am si gasit cu ce, mai ales dupa o reteta explicata atat de bine.

  2. This looks incredible! Every important steps’ pictures would be very helpful, perhaps next time …?

  3. Buna Olguta.
    Vreau sa testez reteta de mai sus insa ma tot cramponez de un ingredient… crema de branza. Fiind intr-un orasel din provincie imi e relativ greu sa-mi gasesc ingredientele. Imi poti spune ce pot folosi? Branza aceease cremoasa de la Philadelphia este OK?
    Multumesc frumos.
