Vera is a friend of mine who is an excellent cook and a wonderful baker. I love all her recipes, and she shares them with anyone who is interested in trying them out.
Today I will share her recipe for Blueberry Muffins which are simple to make, require a few basic ingredients, and absolutely melt in your mouth. She suggests mixing anything you wish into the batter (fruits, berries, nuts, chocolate chips….), and tweaking the recipe to your preference.
I prepared this cake several times in the past but was not ready to share it until I figured out an easier way of handling this delicate dough.
The original recipe calls for lekvar as one of the fillings, but since I am not a big fan of lekvar, I tried other flavors of the Solo cake filling instead, including my own apple filling included with this recipe.
This recipe is from the Traditional Ukrainian Cookery cookbook by Savella Stechishin (pg.415) if you have her book. This book was extremely popular in the 1970s, and now you still can find it on Amazon.com.
I love making these Rosettes for special occasions because they look so dainty, but it is a time-consuming process like with most baking projects.
