Traditional romanian pie - recipe (including photos)

This is a traditional pie from the region of Moldova named "alivenci".

  • 500 milliliters of milk
  • 500 grams of yogurt (or fresh cheese)
  • 150 grams of fresh cream
  • 150 grams of corn flour
  • 50 grams of butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 packets of vanilla sugar
  • half of a teaspoon of salt

 In a pan put the milk, the salt and the butter and let it boil.

When it started boiling, add the corn flour and mix. Keep it at slow fire until it thickens.

Take it from the fire and let it cool.
While it's still a little bit warm, add the fresh cream, the yoghurt, the egg yolks and the vanilla sugar and mix well.

Separately beat the egg whites and add them over the composition.
Mix slowly and only a few times. 

Put the composition in a baking pan and let it in the oven at 180 Celsius degrees for 20 minutes.
Then cover the pan with an aluminum foil and let it bake for another 15 - 20 minutes.

It can be served with fresh cream and if you like sweets you can add some powdered sugar above.
