Cottage cheese is an inimitable product in its universality. In combination with a minimal set of other ingredients, it turns out delicious and not similar to each other culinary "things". And silicone molds help diversify the flow and make baking easier. We offer to learn interesting recipes for cottage cheese muffins in silicone tins.
Safety comes first!
The times when consumers were wary of a new kind of kitchen utensils — silicone dishes — happily passed. Now silicone molds can be found in the kitchen of every self-respecting hostess. However, each medal has a downside. There was a high demand - and on the counters in a moment low-quality products were lined up.
The main advice when choosing silicone dishes - a certificate. Baking should be not only tasty, but also safe. Especially the one that children eat with pleasure. For example, dietary cheesecake.
Indirect signs of poor-quality food-grade silicone - odor and fragility. Good silicone form should not smell and change color (whiten) much on the fold. And it shouldn't smell good either. In some cases, this is a sign of products of even lower quality.
And another tip: do not rush on bright. Acid shades of silicone are not at all in favor of its quality.
Silicone forms do not require much attention. They are easy to wash, and the food burned in them is easily shaken off without residue. However, with all its advantages, the containers have some drawbacks.
First of all, it is their instability. The slightest wrong movement - and the contents, if it is liquid, can be spilled. Therefore, there is a rule: first, silicone molds are placed on a stable surface and only then filled. Move and rearrange them after this is no longer necessary.
Rule two - never cut anything in these forms. Silicone is very "vulnerable."
Cottage Cheese Muffins in Silicone Tins: Recipe for a Classic Basis
- 200 g of cottage cheese of any fat content;
- 1 tbsp. Sahara;
- 3 eggs;
- 120 g butter;
- 4 tbsp. l raisins (optional);
- 1.5 Art. flour;
- 1 tsp. baking powder.
- 2 eggs (only proteins, yolks can be put in the dough);
- natural or safe artificial food colors.
- Soften the butter. You can take it out in advance and put in a warm place, you can melt in a water bath. But not on an open fire!
- Beat eggs with sugar. For this procedure, fanaticism is not necessary - just vigorously mix the mass with a hand whisk.
- Add cottage cheese and soft butter to eggs. Baking powder is also added at this stage.
- Raisins require a good wash. It is better to do it immediately with hot water, and then there will be no need to steam it. Drain and roll berries in flour.
- Flour in small portions to pour to the curd mass and look at the consistency of the resulting dough. If it does not drain from the spoon, and falls "scraps" - flour enough.
- Pour the raisins and knead the dough well. However, it should be noted that adding these berries will make the dough more dense. Therefore, if you want to get airy and simple muffins in silicone tins, then you can not put the raisins.
- Pour dough into molds. Filling containers need not to the brim. Otherwise, the dough when lifting will flow over the edge. Silicone tins do not require lubrication. But they themselves are badly shaped. Therefore, they should be placed either on a baking sheet or in the notches of the baking muffins.
- We bake about 20 minutes. The temperature is set at 180C.
- We mix whipped whites with dye.
- Through a pastry bag we squeeze colored protein onto the finished muffins.

- Add an egg to the curd, and then yogurt and flour. Mix all very well.
- Spread a portion of the resulting mass in molds on the sandy bottom.

- Ready-made muffins remove from the molds only after complete cooling.

Cheesecake with banana cream
Ingredients and cooking technology are given above in a step-by-step recipe for cottage cheese cake with photographs. It can be used as a base for banana and cottage cheese muffins. But over the cream will have to work a little.

- 2 bananas without dark spots;
- 2 tbsp. l powdered sugar;
- 1/2 bag of vanillin (if there is no vanilla, you can use vanilla sugar);

However, this attack can happen with sour cream too. So do not overdo it.

- Quickly, until dark, mix the banana puree with whipped cream.
