Kohukestest kohupiimakooki?

Kuna välismaal on kohupiimaga nagu on, aga kohupiimakooki tahaks, siis tuleb mõelda raamidest väljas.
nn Vene poodides on reeglina müügil kohukesed*.  Kas kohukestest on võimalik normaalne kook meisterdada?

Üks kohuke kaalub  ca 40 g, ja glasuuri on 18-20%, seega 200 g kohupiima jaoks on vaja  umbes 7 kohukest.
Kõige paremad importijad on leedukad, aga kahjuks mu kodupoes Leedu kohukesi parasjagu polnud.

Seega võtsin katseks Karumsid. Karumsilt on teatavasti glasuuri eemaldamine keeruline. Aga teistelt soovitan suuremad glasuuritükid ära võtta.
Kuna tegemist oli katsega, siis  põhjaga mässama ei hakanud, prooviks sai tehtud ainult ülemine osa nn kohupiimavormina.

Kohukesed pressisin massiks. Lisasin ühe lahtiklopitud muna ja ca 100 g hapukoort *
Kuna glasuur jäi sisse, siis segu oli selline… kahtlast värvi.  Ja ka lõpptulemus nn marmorjas.

Aga väga maitsev. Ja kohutavalt magus.

Segu panin võitatud vormi, koogi jaoks tuleks see valada koogipõhjale. Ja küpsetasin 180 kraadi juures u 20 minutit.
