    Today in our review there is again a dessert and not just any, but a real one. This is everyone's favorite plum charlotte. You will be right if you say that the right charlotte should be cooked with apples, but no one will deny that a very successful, if not the most delicious, charlotte is obtained with plums, because it is a surprisingly juicy and at the same time not too sweet fruit that makes the dessert soaked and not dry, but still very fragrant. This is the reason why we chose plums as the second ingredient for the filling, and not peaches or, for example, pears.

    The dough recipe we used today is quite familiar to those who cook this cake all the time, and if not, then there will be an occasion to try something new. In addition to the cooking guide itself, we will talk about the history of this simple, but beloved dessert by everyone, about its features, cooking secrets and, of course, the benefits.

    History of the dish

    Charlotte in the classic version is a pie made from apples that are baked in dough. Initially, it is believed that this type of pastry was borrowed from the British and therefore very much resembles the classic recipe for making English pudding. For such a pudding, it is necessary to soak the bread in butter or an egg, then lay the bottom of the mold with bread, place apples on it and cover with bread again on top. You can place several layers of filling at once and get a magnificent charlotte or pudding. The main thing is not to forget that both must be baked in the oven and undergo heat treatment.

    The pudding was usually served with ice cream or whipped cream, so a similar method was later borrowed by the creators of charlotte. It is also not entirely true that apples are the best filling for such a pie, they are used more often only because of their prevalence and cheapness in Europe. And in general, the preparation of charlotte is not a tricky business, and therefore there are a great many similar recipes. From the so-called "Russian charlotte" with Bavarian cream and whipped cream to the usual popular nowadays biscuit dessert with sliced apples, plums, dogs or other fruits.

    There is even a romantic story about the appearance of charlotte and, of course, they associate it with the lady of the heart, with whom one cook was hopelessly in love. The name of the beauty was Charlotte, and therefore, allegedly, the famous pie was invented in her honor. But is it true or not, and which of the stories is true today is no longer known, so it's time to talk a little about the intricacies and secrets of cooking that we know:

    1. the main rule is not to add too juicy fillings to the pie, otherwise they will let the juice and the pie turn from lush and dense into liquid and creamy;
    2. do not overdo it with flour, otherwise the dough will become clogged and the cake will lose splendor and softness;
    3. for juiciness, put butter in small pieces directly on the filling and only then pour the dough;
    4. Be careful not to overbake the charlotte - this can also cause loss of flavor.
