Travelling ..... in cuisines all over the world!
Thanks to the great success in recent months , continues again this travell trip through the cuisines all over the world with many new recipes and places to visit. This week we travel with:Garibaldis ( Mexico )
The Garibaldis , are some sweets in the shape of the hat. From the name it soon becomes clear that they are dedicated to Giuseppe Garibaldi. The Garibaldis are prepared in the original version , the molds mini cup cakes . and so resemble the shape of a hat , similar to that worn by Garibaldi in his battles . In pictures instead , I propose my version : A cylinder. Why ? Simply, because I had available at that time a mold for mini cup cakes and I wanted to suggest another way to prepare these delicious treats. You will need a rectangular mold and a round cookie cutter of 3.5 cm or 4 cm. So , we see at once how to prepare :
( This recipe is Nuxia )
200 grams of sugar
3 1/ 2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder for cakes
1/2 cup of liquid cream
3/4 cup apricot jam
1/4 of water
250 g of granulated sugar to cocoa (type code of chocolate)
397 g of condensed milk
300 g unsalted butter at room temperature
In a planetary mixing the sugar with the butter until creamy. Add the condensed milk always with planetary action . Then add the eggs one by one. Stir in the flour sifted with baking powder , alternating with the cream .
Put the mixture into the molds mini cup cakes previously buttered and floured and filling compound for 3 /4. If you do not have these molds using a rectangular mold of dimensions 20 cm x 30 cm approximately . Bake in the oven for 20 about 160 ° -170 ° C if you have used the molds mini cup cakes for 40 minutes if you used a rectangular mold . Remove the cupcakes ( or cake ) from the molds and leave to cool. If you have made a unique cake with cookie cutter obtained many circles, the more it will be possible. In a saucepan, bring to heat the jam with the water until you get a creamy liquid , similar to honey. Remove from heat and pour the candy. Allow to cool . Pass the cookies are still warm in the grains . They should be served upside down or with the shorter part upwards. As if they were , in fact hats . If, however , you have created the circles manually after pouring the jam and still lukewarm , merge the two circles . One above the other . In order to obtain a cylinder. Then finish the decoration with granulated sugar to cocoa.

The suggestions of Nuxia :
If you do not have the measuring cups , you can use a measuring cup of milliliters , whereas 250 ml is equivalent to a 1 cup . ( Ex. 1/2 cup = 125 ml , etc. . ) Then measure , all the ingredients are liquid or solid , with measurements shown in ml .
Warning: never measure in grams!
