Custard Caramel Pudding

Last week before going back to hostel,my son Salman requested that I make Custard caramel the next time he comes back.So not to dissappoint him yesterday I made it.But I didn't make my normal Custard Caramel that I am most known with. My son Usamah had asked me to make the 'smooth-kind' like in the shops.
So I started recipe hunting again.Found many that used '3 eggs and 2 yolks'.I passed these kind of reipe coz I don't know what to do with the extra egg white,Then there recipes that used 7-10 eggs.
My!My! So many eggs! I will always avoid recipes that use too much eggs.Until I found this Japanese Custard recipe.And it turned out perfect! The combination of the slightly bitter caramel and sweet custard pudding is so lovely!Especially when eaten cool.
I doubled the portions coz 4 just didn't seem to be enough for us.
Lets check out the recipe.This ingredient makes 4.

Caramel
4 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp water
1 1/2 - 2 tbsp hot water

Egg mixture
2 eggs
250 ml fresh milk
5 tbsp sugar

4 pudding moulds
some unsalted butter

These are the moulds I used

  1. Butter the moulds to make it easy for the pudding to come out later.
  2. To make the caramel place the sugar and water in a pot on medium heat. Let it sit until the sugar turns brown. Remove the pot from the heat and add in the hot water. Keep it away from you so thet the hot caramel sauce doesn't burn your hand.
  3. Pour the caramel into the pudding moulds. Put aside.
  4. Next crack the 2 eggs into a bowl. Lightly beat the egg. Don't lift the tip of the whisk leave the bottom of the bowl to avoid creating too much foam.
  5. add milk and sugar in a pot on low heat until sugar is dissolved.
  6. Add the milk into the egg while continously whisking the egg.
  7. Sieve the mixture.
  8. Pour the mixture into the moulds and steam it.
  9. Make sure the water for steaming is under boiling point to ensure smooth top. Covering each mould with foil helps.
After cooled.

Turned upside down and this is how it looks like.See the glossy top?

I made another batch today for Salman to take back to hostel.

Banana Nutella Swirl Cake



Everyone loves Nutella.So when a friend brought me a big bottle of Nutella,besides the usual spread-on-the-bread style I thought of making it into a cake.Not unusual for me don't you think?
So it was browsing time as usual until I came upon this recipe.Easy and super duper delicious and moist.Check it out!

 Ingredients

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup banana, mashed (about two medium bananas)
  • 1/3 cup canola oil-I used normal cooking oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp Nutella-I put 3 tbsp
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly mist a 9 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, from the flour to the cinnamon.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix together the mashed banana, applesauce, oil, egg, and vanilla.
  4. Pour your wet ingredients into the dry, and mix just until blended.
  5. Pour into your baking dish. In half-teaspoonfuls, dot the surface of the batter with the Nutella. Using a sharp knife, swirl it through the batter.
It looks like marble.

6.Place cake in the middle of the oven and cook for 20 min.Cake is done when the tester inserted in the middle of the pan comes out clean. 
7.Cool pan on wire rack for about 20 mn.Cake will be tender and delicate,so remove carefully from pan.Or just cut and serve from the pan.

I was going to my mums house yesterday morning.My Mak Tok has moved over to her house again and I was eager to meet her.I wanted so bad to bring something along.But every recipe I came upon had an ingredient that I didn't have at hand in the house.And I was so lazy to go out to the shop so early in the morning.I got so frustrated coz time was running out and I wouldn't be able to bake anything if I take more time looking for a recipe.
I don't know why but I take a longer looking for a recipe than making the the cake itself.And it happens almost all the time coz I will usually make different recipe each time.Sigh...!
Then I found this recipe and was I sooo happy coz it required ingredients that was available in the house.But I made a few minor alterations to it and it worked wonders!It makes quite a big cake.You can half it if you want.The actual recipe doesn't use egg or butter.
Lets check it out...

Ingredients
2 cups white sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups water + 1 egg (I added this.I place the egg in a measuring cup and added water till it became 2 cups.You can ommit this if you want)
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tbsp sour cream (I added this coz I love the effect of adding it to my batter.Its optional)

Process:
1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C.
2. In a large bowl, mix sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa.
3. Add water,egg,sour cream, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla.
4. Beat by hand until smooth.
5. Pour into a 9x13 inch pan.I used a round 9" baking pan.
6. Bake 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.


For the topping I used;
 1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 tbsp butter/ margerine


I love the cracks.

The toppings dripping...

A slice.Yummy...

Mayo Doughnuts

Umamah requested that I make some doughnuts today. Infact she had been asking for a while now. I just wasn't too sure I can make them. But I thought I'd give it a try today. And was I glad I did!
The texture is soft and fluffy. Just perfect!
So what are you waiting for?
Lets check the ingredients.

1 1/2 tbs mayonnaise
1 1/2 tbs margerine
1 tbsp powdered milk
1 egg slightly beaten
140 ml warm water
3 tbsp sugar
4 gms or 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast


Castor sugar for dusting the doughnuts.


Process:
1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl.Use a fork and stir everything untill it forms in crumbs.Then add the warm water.Mix well.Cover the bowl with cling wrap and put it in a warm place and let it rise for about 1 hour.
2. When the dough has risen punch out the air.
3.  Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and gently roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a floured doughnut cutter. Let doughnuts sit out to rise again until double. Cover loosely with a cloth. 
4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer. When the oil is hot slow down the heat to medium.You dont want to burn the doughnuts.
5.  Slide doughnuts into the hot oil using a wide spatula. Turn doughnuts over as they rise to the surface. Fry doughnuts on each side until golden brown. Remove from hot oil, to drain on a wire rack. Dip doughnuts into the castor sugar while still hot, and set onto wire racks to drain off excess..

Drain any excess oil then dip in the castor sugar
Served.Soft and fluffy doughnuts for tea.

4) In a large bowl mix together the remaining ingredients until combined. Add the dry ingredients and just mix to combine but not over mixing. Using a spatula fold in the chocolate chip mixture and make sure they are evenly spread out through out the batter.

5 Minute Microwave Chocolate Cake in a mug

I was going thru some recipes on the net when suddenly I felt I wanted to eat chocolate cake. Huhuhu. So I serched for a microwave chocolate cake recipe that was easy and fast. I wasn't sure how my microwave would turn the batter coz its just a simple microwave but I thought I'd give it a try. But it turned out sooo good, I ate it warm. Couldn't wait for it to cool.
Lets go over the ingedients.

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons whisked egg -
1 egg is too much, 1 egg white is too eggy, 1 yolk is too dense, but 2 tblsp is just right!( I ran out of eggs so I ommitted this)
3 tablespoons milk(I put 4)
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
splash vanilla
a pinch of baking powder (I added)
2 tablespoon of yogurt (optional, I added coz I ommitted the egg)

1. Add all of the dry ingredients to the mug and mix.
2. Add the egg and combine well. It gets pretty pasty at the point.
3. Stir in milk and oil.
4. Add chocolate chips* and splash of vanilla. Stir well.*if you don't have chocolate chips, try a broken up candy bar - I can't stress how much this amps the awesomeness of your cake.

Cakes for Teachers Day

The girls had requested to bring cakes on teachers day so I chose to bake my Chocolate Yogurt Cake and Red Velvet Cuppies using Laura Vitales recipe.

With love to all teachers that have been teaching and taking care of my girls whilst they are in school.

The decorations were made by my girls.


Laura Vitales Cinnamon Rolls-Soft and delicious

1 Package of Dry Yeast (7gms)
¾ cup of Whole Milk
¼ cup of Granulated Sugar
¼ cup of Water, warmed up to 115 degrees
¼ tsp of Vanilla Extract
1 Egg
1 tsp of Salt
¼ cup of Unsalted Butter, melted
4 cups of All Purpose Flour
¼ cup of Melted Butter, to brush over the top before baking

For the filling,

1/3 cup of Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
¾ cup of Brown Sugar
¼ cup of Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp of Ground Cinnamon

For the glaze,

¼ cup of Cream Cheese, at room temperature
1 Tbsp of Butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups of Powdered Sugar
½ tsp of Vanilla Extract
3 to 4 Tbsp of Warm Milk 

Process,
1) In a small bowl, combine the warm water and 1 tsp of the granulated sugar, sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

2) In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook, mix the egg, milk, salt, sugar and melted butter. Add 2 cups of the flour and the water, vanilla and yeast mixture, mix until its all incorporated and slowly add about 2 more cups of flour. Turn the speed up to medium and let it mix for about 5 to 7 minutes or until you have a smooth dough.

3) Oil a large bowl with some vegetable oil and set aside. Take the dough out of the mixer and pull it together with your hands to form a ball. Place it in the oiled bowl and oil the top of the dough with a little vegetable oil. Cover with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rise for about 2 hours.

4) In a small bow, mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon for the filling, set aside.

5) When doubled in size, punch the dough down and roll it out onto a floured surface into a 15x9” rectangle. Spread the soft butter over the top and sprinkle evenly over the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Cut into 14 to 16 slices (make sure they are even) and place them cut side down in a well buttered 9x13 baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let put them back into a warm spot to rise for another 1 ½ hours.

6) Meanwhile preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

7) Once risen, brush them with some melted butter and bake them for about 30 or until golden brown.

8) While the cinnamon rolls cool for a few minutes make the glaze. Mix all the ingredients of the glaze in a bowl except for the milk, once the cream cheese is all mixed, slowly add the milk until you get a runny glaze consistency. Immediately pour the glaze over the cinnamon rolls and enjoy!

Look at them rise.So gebu maa...
I just love to see the swirls
1 recipe makes 16 Cinnamon Rolls.
Perfectly baked!
Drizzled with creamcheese frostings.Just out of this world!
