published on 3 February, 2018 at 12:59Ingredients:
1 Tsp Baking Powder
100g Cooking Oil
4 Egg Yolks
6 Egg Whites.
60g Pudding Powder.
600g Sour Cream.
500g Apricot Jam.
6 Sheets Gelatine.
15 Apricot Halves.
100g Melted Dark Chocolate.
10g Melted White Chocolate.
30 Almond Flakes.
Beat together the flour, 1st sugar entry on the list, baking powder, cooking oil, water and egg yolks and mix together to form a batter.
Now beat the egg whites to a soft peak and gently fold into the batter with a metal spoon.
Pour into a deep sided baking tray (25cm by 35cm by at least 4cm deep) that has been sprayed with baking spray and then bake for 15 minutes at 180°C or 350F for 15 minutes.
When cooked remove from the oven and cool completely.
Mix together the pudding powder with a splash of the milk from the 500ml of milk and stir.
Now pour this mix into the milk and cook over a medium heat stirring all the time until it thickens.
Add this ‘custard’ to the sour cream and mix before pouring over the cooled sponge and again cool completely.
Mix together the apricot jam and water until it is dissolved.
Add in the gelatine that has been softened in cold water and again stir until dissolved.
Pour this jelly mix over the custard mix in the baking tray and allow to set for a couple of hours.
Take most of the melted dark chocolate and place in a piping bag with a fine nozzle and drizzle over the rear half of each apricot half.
Now dip the back of a clean spoon in to the remaining chocolate and press onto the front of the apricot to form a face.
Dip the large end of a wooden skewer into the melted white chocolate and create two eyes.
Repeat with the sharp end of the skewer to create two dark spots in the eyes.
Make a small slit on the top of each apricot and add the almond flakes to form wings.
Repeat with all 15 apricots and place on the jelly surface in three rows of 5.
