Chocolate dumplings/ravioli with oranges and cheese filling

I like dumplings a lot. I also like to experiment with flavors. That is why I got the idea for chocolate dumplings/ravioli with oranges and cheese filling. Cool, unusual combination.

Składniki / Ingredients:

For ravioli

  • 260 g of plain flour
  • 120 ml of boiling water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 30 g butter
  • cocoa powder

For filling:

  • 250 grams of mascarpone
  • icing sugar to taste
  • 1 package of custard powder
  • 1 yolk
  • oranges cut into cubes

Sposób wykonania / Instructions:

  • Place flour on a floured surface and make
  • a well in the center. Add eggs and salt int middle of the well. Melt the butter in hot water and pour into well. Add cocoa powder. Stir together, forming a ball. Knead until smooth and elastic for about 8-10 minutes, adding more flour if necessary to keep dough from sticking. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

For filling

  • Mix mascarpone cheese with custard powder, icing sugar, and egg yolk.
  • Cut off a quarter of the dough. Flour your work surface and roll the piece of dough out to a 3mm thickness. Using a cutter or a drinking glass, cut out circles from the dough, saving the excess for your next batch.
  • Place a spoonful of mascarpone filling in the center of a circle. Then place the piece of orange. Fold the circle over to create a half-moon, then pinch the edges together to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.
  • Bring 3 liters of salted water to the boil. Add the few portions of ravioli at a time and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until they float to the top. Spoon them into a strainer to drain.
  • You can serve with melted butter. I have served with orange curd mixed with chopped apricots
