Title: Today's Baking
Post by: dogsmum on June 21, 2011, 20:52:55 PM

 Oatmeal Cookies. I have made these lots of times before, but Alice came up yesterday eve & she said one of the blokes in work ate all of the one's I gave her last time & asked if I'd make some more ;D I sent her home with a dozen of them (I usually make a batch of 30) but told her if he ask's for more I'll willingly make them for him but for a price ::)

Title: Re: Today's Baking
Post by: dogsmum on July 25, 2011, 20:59:22 PM
can i have the recipe for them?

 I had a couple of recipes for them one of which included Cream Cheese, I'm not using that in recipes atm as most of what I bake goes to Paul, Beth & Elsie & with Beth being pregnant as you know cream cheese is a no-no

 So I did them like so....

 Melted 6oz of White Choc
 Finely crumbed 8oz of plain cake crumbs
 Mix the melted chocolate into the cake crumbs & mix in well
 With your hands make 17 (well thats how many I managed) small balls
 Push a lolly stick into each one (very carefully as thats when my balls broke ::)) & put in the Fridge for half hour or so to harden
 Then melted 6oz of Milk Choc & dipped each 'lolly' into it. Leave on Baking Parchment in Fridge to set

 And they are damn yummy :D

when i did icream it was like rock.

You have to fluff it up a few times as it slowly freezes.
Title: Re: Today's Baking
Post by: Lisa on August 11, 2011, 16:38:16 PM
i have a machine that goes in the freezer and stirs as it freezes, still went too hard tho
i think my recipe was wrong
Title: Re: Today's Baking
Post by: Tāf on August 11, 2011, 16:41:39 PM
Did you use a custard base (cooked before freezing) or a cream base (mixed then frozen)?
Title: Re: Today's Baking
Post by: Lisa on August 11, 2011, 16:52:43 PM
cream i think, was a while a go

 For you 'Pam'...

 Banana Tea Loaf    

225 g (8 oz)  Self Raising Flour
1 x 1.25 ml (¼ tsp) spoon    bicarbonate of soda
pinch    salt
75 g (3 oz)    butter
175 g (6 oz)    caster sugar
2 medium    eggs, beaten
450 g (1 lb)    bananas weighed with skin, peeled, mashed
100 g (4 oz)    walnuts, chopped 
   

1    Heat oven to 180ŗC, 350ŗF, Gas Mark 4. Grease and line the base of a 1 kg (2 lb.) loaf tin.
2    Mix together flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
3    Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, add the eggs a little at a time alternately with the flour.
4    Stir in the remaining flour, bananas and walnuts and place in prepared tin. Bake for about 1¼ hours.
5    Cool on a wire rack

 I use Raisins instead of Walnuts

 'Lisa', I used this recipe for the Choc Mint Ice Cream

 225ml semi skimmed milk
 50g castor sugar
 225ml double cream
 few drops peppermint extract
 75g grated plain choc

 Put milk & sugar in a saucepan over a low heat unti sugar has dissolved then leave to cool.
 Stir the cream & peppermint extract into the cooled milk.
 Pour the mixture into the bowl with the paddle running.
 When the mixture starts to freeze add the grated choc. Allow to freeze unyil desired consistancy is reached.

 The Strawberry Ice Cream

 350gstrawberries
 75g castor sugar
 200ml whipping cream
 juice of half a lemon

 Puree the Strawberries, add the remaining ingredients.
 Pour the mixture into the bowl with the paddle running.
 Allow mixture to freeze until desired consistency is reached

 Yes they are both using the Ice Cream Maker

 Made this this eve, very tasty, easy & filling  :D

Ravinder Bhogal's Hot sausage roast
 
 (http://i42.tinypic.com/dy72w.jpg)

  I halved the ingredients & have plenty for tomorrow too
 I didn't make the gravy but had it with baked beans

Ravinder Bhogal's Hot sausage roast

    Preparation time 10 mins
    Cooking time 75 mins
    Serves 4 people


    4 Medium waxy potatoes
    20 Baby shallots or silver skin pickling onions
    4 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
    1 tbsp Olive oil, to drizzle
    1 pinch Sea salt
    1 pinch Freshly ground black pepper
    250 g (8.8oz) Chesnut mushrooms, halved
    8 Good-quality sausages of your choice
    4 Sprigs of thyme
    250 ml (8.8fl oz) Red wine
    1 tbsp Brown sugar
    6 tbsp Balsamic vinegar


 
Step-by-step

    Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/ Gas mark 6.
    Scrub the potatoes but don’t peel them, then cut into thick slices. Put the potatoes, onions and garlic into a large roasting tin with a drizzle of olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix well. Put into the oven and roast for 25 minutes.
    Add the mushrooms, turning the vegetables to make sure the mushrooms get a good coating of the garlicky olive oil. Lay the sausages on top of the mushrooms, top with the thyme sprigs and baste with the oily juices of the vegetables. Roast for another 20 minutes, then turn the sausages and cook for a final 20 minutes.
    Once the sausages are cooked, transfer them along with the potatoes and mushrooms to a hot plate and keep warm while you make the gravy.
    Leave the onions in the pan but remove and discard the thyme sprigs. Put the roasting tin on the hob and deglaze the pan by pouring in the wine – scrape off all the caramelised bits in the bottom of the pan for extra flavour. Let the wine bubble and reduce by half, then add the sugar and balsamic vinegar and keep stirring until you have a thick, sticky gravy. Drizzle over the sausages and vegetables and serve immediately.

 (http://i41.tinypic.com/a5clll.jpg)

 The recipe

 Ingredients:

100 gm (3/4 cup) plain flour
30 gm (2 tbsp) cornflour
60 gm (1/2 cup) icing sugar
100 gm (1/2 cup) butter
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Method:

Sieve the flour and the cornflour together into a bowl.

In another bowl mix in the butter and the sugar with a hand blender or a wire whisk or put in the stand mixer with the paddle attachment and blend until smooth and creamy.

Put in the flour mixture, milk and vanilla extract and mix until smooth and there are no lumps.

Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade/ 350F/Gas mark 4.

Put the entire mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe into stars (rosettes) on a lightly greased baking tin or a tin lined with baking parchment. Alternatively make small balls, flatten lightly with your palms and bake.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown at the edges.

 Recipe

 Makes 1, 1lb loaf

Ingredients

300g/11oz strong plain flour

2.5ml/1/2tsp salt

15g/1/2oz butter

7.5ml/1 1/2tsp easy-bake yeast

 So I've decided to make an amount of cupcakes for Merv with assorted fondant patterns on them plus one with a fondant Merv on it.
 Merv is slightly on the chubby side, don't tell him I said that though. He is also bald, hair started receeding when he was quite young so he just shaves it all off now.
 So, do you think this might look like him. I've never made a fondant person before so I'm quite chuffed with it ;D

  Okay, I give up.  What's the difference between frosting and icing?

 As far as I know, icing is made with more sugar and put on the cakes a little thinner consistancy then sets on the cake.
 Frosting is more rich and creamy. It's thicker and fluffier than icing and has butter in it.

   Ah, I see.  Frosting's more like buttercream, then?

 Yep, buttercream is made with Butter. Frosting can be made with Margarine or if you want a white frosting, with a mix Trex :puke: & margarine  ;)
