ingredients: 4 large slices of watermelon, a teaspoon of fresh lavender flowers, a teaspoon of honey, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, a teaspoon of vodka.

Method of preparation: in a pan, put on the fire the lavender flowers, but also a slice of watermelon. Stir for 10 minutes until the flavors blend. Leave to cool, then mix with honey and lemon juice. All this time a whole watermelon is kept cold.

Watermelon cake is a delicious seasonal recipe. For this cake recipe, first prepare the base or the top.

The biscuits are cut (larger pieces) or grated on a large grater and then mixed with butter (soft), then kneaded. If the biscuits are cut without cinnamon, add cinnamon.

The circle in the shape of a cake is placed on a plate, greased with oil or butter and glued on it (inside) baking paper. Place the biscuit dough as a base, press, then level.

The melon slices (200 grams) are crushed (puree), add the sugar and vanilla sugar and put in a pan to heat a little - not to boil! Meanwhile, soak the gelatin in cold water for 5 minutes (according to the instructions on the envelope). When the watermelon puree with sugar is hot, soak the galatin (5 min.) Drain well, pressing it and add it to the melon puree (in this way: put a little warm melon juice over the soaked gelatin, mix, then add the gelatin thus dissolved to the melon puree). Leave to cool.

Before the gelatin hardens, add the vanilla and whipped cream quark. Put this composition over the 'dough' of biscuits, level it, then make a small hole and leave it in the fridge overnight. What is put on top: The pieces of watermelon (500 grams) cut into large pieces, together with the water and sugar are put on the fire when heated (be careful not to boil!). Mix with soaked gelatin, remove from heat and allow to cool.

Until the gelatin hardens, put this composition over the cake (taken out of the fridge) and put it back to cool.

Melon cake

This is a typical German cake, meaning their cakes are made like this (mostly): & # 39podea & # 39 biscuits crumbled and mixed with butter (biscuits differ, depending on the recipe), followed by & # 39crema & # 39 (whipped cream with quark - that is, fresh cheese, like a cream - and fruit plus gelatin or cream and yogurt and fruit plus gelatin etc.) and fruits with gelatin on top.

For decoration-
powdered sugar and mint leaves.

Observation. 1 The recipe said "cinnamon biscuits" (& # 39Zimtkekse & # 39), but I put butter biscuits and added cinnamon powder when I made the "assessment". Replacement was mandatory, because I found out at the store that cinnamon cookies are "seasonal", they only appear on holidays.
2. I exactly followed the recipe (quantities) because I used a form with a diameter of 18 cm, I calculated about two thirds of the initial quantities, namely: 130 grams of biscuits, 80 grams of butter. Cream: 130 grams of watermelon, 50 grams of sugar 5.3 sheets of gelatin, 200 grams of vanilla quark, 400 grams of whipped cream. Above: 330 grams of watermelon, 170 ml of water, 30 grams of sugar, 2 sheets of gelatin.

3. Melon slices (200 grams) crush (puree), add sugar and vanilla sugar and put in a pan to heat a little - do not boil & # 33
Meanwhile, soak the gelatin in cold water for 5 minutes (according to the instructions on the envelope). When the watermelon puree with sugar is hot, the soaked galatin (5 min.) Drains well from the water, pressing it and adding it to the melon puree. (in this way: put a little melon juice over the soaked gelatin, mix, then add the gelatin thus dissolved to the melon puree). Let it cool.


4. Before the gelatin hardens, add the vanilla and whipped cream quark.

Here you can see what the vanilla quark is like - a thick cream (write on the box that it contains: quark, yogurt and flavors, etc.):

Put this composition on top of the "biscuit", level it, then make a small hole and leave it in the fridge overnight.


I left it in the freezer for about an hour until the cream hardened, I did a little deepening, I left it in the freezer for another hour, then I made the melon compote to put on top.

What we put above:

5. Pieces of watermelon (500 grams) cut into large pieces, together with water and sugar are put on the fire to heat
(be careful not to boil & # 33).
Mix with soaked gelatin (as I did above), remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Here you can see how we cut the melon pieces, whoever has more patience can cut them artistically

6. Until the gelatin hardens, put this composition over the cake (taken out of the fridge) and put it to cool again. [i]
