Home made bors

I grow up in a time when in each house the bors was made at home. Now I don't think that is made at home anymore, maybe only by some grandma or aunt that remembers the recipe. Now every thing comes from the supermarket.
I had the chance to live outside the country for a good period of time, and in this contry the bors doesn't exist, different traditions and culture, but I wanna cook like home. So I had to make my on bors, I found in a local store corn semolina and wheat bran, with the lovage was hard but my mom put in my bags some dry one so I manage with that.
For more information on this bors I let the wiki link so you can find more info on this.

Vanilla smart cake

Here we go with another dessert! Can you tell I like desserts more? Yah, I like them, not too much to eat but to prepare I love it, and you will see many desserts recipes here on this site.
Now I want to tell you something about how we prepare desserts and basically every dish here in Romania, well, we do it from scratch. We do not have premixed or casserole meals  that you can take and mix or heat in the microwave and the dish is ready to eat, no we do it with real ingredients.
You cannot buy from a store a box with mixed stuff in it, you add some milk and put it in the oven and the cake is ready, no we always use eggs, flour, sugar, cream, butter, etc to prepare desserts and anything else. And for this I am lucky, because the taste is amazing and I  know what I eat.
But enough with the small talk let's go back to the recipe, and here you can watch the video.
