Jaleo en la Cocina: La tarta reina... ¡Tarta Fraisier! Muselina - Esta es una crema que necesita tiempo de enfriado, por lo que es recomendable hacerla pronto o la noche anterior.- En un cazo colocamos la leche junto con la mitad del azúcar (60 gr) y la vainilla y calentamos, sin que llegue a hervir.- En un bol amplio batimos las yemas con el azúcar restante (60 gr) hasta cremar, que haya adquirido un color más blanquecino.- Añadimos la harina tamizada y mezclamos bien, con cuidado, para que no pierda el aire.- Cuando la leche esté caliente, añadimos la mitad a la mezcla de yemas y batimos para que se incorpore todo perfectamente.- Cuando la leche restante comience a hervir, echamos el contenido del bol en el cazo y mezclamos bien. Debemos bajar a fuego medio y mezclar con una varilla, sin parar, hasta que espese.- Una vez que empiece a espesar, seguimos cociendo durante dos minutos más para que se termine de cocer la harina.- Pasado este tiempo, incorporamos 150 gr de mantequilla (no tiene por qué estar a temperatura ambiente).

Caramel Brownie Cheesecake This is a monkeyhead concoction so please don’t be disappointed with me that it’s not 100% homemade. Sometimes as a mom you have to go with your childrens ideas in order to lift their creative wings. Monkey One loves cheesecake and caramel, Monkey Two has a passion for brownies you put the two of these knuckleheads together and look at what they come up with… Caramel Brownie Cheesecake. You gotta love the way these boys think. M2 loves his brownie mix above because while I’m at work he can whip up a batch with my surfer and feel like he has stepped out of his sous chef role into the postion of head honcho. While the boys made the brownie mix I lined a springform pan with parchment paper. Once the brownie mix was in the oven we moved on to making Jamie’s caramel. In a heavy saucepan stir together the sugar, syrup and water until the sugar is completely moistened. Stirring constantly over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the syrup is bubbling. Stir in the butter and salt. Voila!
