⭐️Beef Stroganoff with Fluffy Rice⭐️MacNean House and RestaurantLikeCommentSharePadraic Guilfoyle1.1K143 comments344 shares48K views · on Thursday · Stroganoff is definitely a classic recipe for an all time family favourite. One which can be made in advance, this recipe originates from Neven’s late Mum, Vera.
Served with rice or simple boiled potatoes it is without a doubt a winner!
This cake can be served warm as a dessert or cold as a teatime treat. It’s delicious with custard, but it would also be good with crème fraîche, clotted cream, vanilla ice cream or whipped cream – the list is endless! If you don’t fancy the apple, try using rhubarb or blackberries, depending on the time of year.
For the streusel:
4 tbsp plain flour
1oz (2 tbsp) Kerrygold butter, diced, extra to grease
2 tbsp light brown sugar
3 tbsp toasted skinned hazelnuts, finely chopped
For the cake:
5oz (10 tbsp) Kerrygold butter, at room temperature
5oz (2/3 cup) caster sugar
3 eggs, beaten
8oz (11/3 cups) self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1 dessert apple, peeled, cored and diced (about 175g (6oz) (1 cup))
4oz (¾ cup) toasted skinned hazelnuts, finely chopped
4 tbsp milk
warm custard, to serve
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 23cm (9in) loose-bottomed cake tin and then line with a circle of buttered parchment paper. To make the streusel, place the flour in a small bowl and rub in the butter, then stir in the brown sugar and hazelnuts.
To make the cake, beat the butter and caster sugar together with a hand held electric mixer in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, a little at a time, adding one tablespoon of the flour when you have added about half of the beaten eggs. This will stop it from curdling. Sift over the rest of the flour and the baking powder and cinnamon, then mix lightly. Add the apple, hazelnuts and milk and fold in until thoroughly combined.
Spoon the cake mixture into the prepared cake tin and spread level. Scatter the streusel in an even layer on top of the cake mixture and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour until the sides of the cake have shrunk slightly away from the tin and the streusel topping is golden brown. To test if the cake is done, insert a fine metal skewer into the middle. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready. Remove the cake from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes set on a wire rack.
To serve, cut the apple and hazelnut streusel cake into slices and arrange on plates with the warm custard.
450g/18oz baby potatoes
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
½ lemon, juice only
1 tsp. dried dill
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
2 spring onions
2 tbsp. capers
100g/4oz tin of smoked trout, drained and flaked
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped, optional
The featured recipe this month of warm potato salad with smoked trout, capers & lemon mayo comes from Kristen Jensen, co-author of Sláinte: The Complete Guide to Irish Craft Beer and Cider (2014), and Secretary of the Irish Food Writers’ Guild. You can find Kristen’s original version on page 80 of Fishwives, a cookbook by Goatsbridge, available from select bookstores or online.
Place the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about ten minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through and tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Drain well and allow to cool slightly – just so they stop steaming.
Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Transfer the warm potatoes to a mixing bowl and pour over the lemon mayonnaise, stirring to coat the potatoes evenly.
Thinly slice the spring onions on the diagonal, including the green tops. Add to the potatoes along with the capers and stir together. Divide the potato salad between two shallow bowls and scatter the flaked trout and chopped hard boiled eggs, if using, on top. Season with another pinch of salt and pepper and serve while the potatoes are still warm.
