8 - peach-red currant cake & chocolate-pistachio toffees

Had a cosy homely weekend since Erik was ill and there was (actually still is!!!) like minus 30 degrees in Estonia. I'm waiting for the spring so much I even can't describe it. So sick of this endless winter!
Anyway, you can find two recipes from this post: firstly the peach-red currant cake I made on Saturday and secondly the chocolate-pistachio toffees from Sunday. Both of them are easy to make, so definitely give it a try!


Peach-red currant cake
Base:
* 200 g of butter
* 1,5 dl of sugar
* two eggs
* 4 dl of flour
* 2 teaspoons of baking-powder
---------------------------------
Covering:
* 2 dl of sour cream
* two eggs
* 4 tablespoons of sugar
* 2 teaspoons of vanilin
---------------------------------
On top of everything else:
* one big jar of peach compote
* 2 dl of frozen red currants
---------------------------------
Heat the oven to 200 degrees (C). Whip the butter and the sugar. Add the eggs and whip them. Mix dry substances and add to the butter-sugar-eggs mixture.
Spread the batter on the baking tray covered with baking paper and bake it for ten minutes.
Mix the sour cream, eggs and vanilin. Pour the mixture on top of the batter. Cover everything with sliced peaches and frozen red currants. Cook for additional 20 minutes.
ps! I also used some black-currants and raspberries.

Chocolate-pistachio toffees
* one jar (190 g) of condensed milk with sugar
* 1,25 dl of sugar
* 25 g of butter
* 60 g of dark chocolate
* 50 g of pistachio nuts
------------------------------------------------
Mix the condensed milk, sugar and butter in the pot. Heat and at the same time mix it constantly. Boil until the mixture becomes golden brown (around ten minutes).
Remove it from the oven and add sliced chocolate. Mix and add (cleaned) pistachio nuts.
Pour the mixture on the 20x30 cm plate or something similar covered with baking paper. Cool for about half an hour in the fridge and then split it into squares.
