Today i was rabbiting on about eating animal shaped STN biscuits on discord, dont ask me why then JB suggested a thread on the forum was started about recipes.

I dunno about you but i love real food and baking/cooking is a hobby of mine.

To get the ball rolling, here's a real easy recipe for microwave chocolate pudding, never fails. Its my goto when i need a choc fix. Great with cream and carob powder instead of cocoa.

Ingredients

  • Pudding
    3/4 cup Chelsea White Sugar
    1 Tbsp butter
    1 cup flour, sifted
    1 Tbsp cocoa powder
    1/2 cup milk
    1 tsp baking powder

    Sauce
    1 cup Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    1 Tbsp cocoa powder
    1 1/2 cups boiled water
    1 tsp vanilla essence
Method

  • Pudding
    Cream together 3/4 cup white sugar and 1 tbsp butter in a mixing bowl. Add sifted flour and cocoa, followed by the milk and baking powder - mix until "globby".

    Pour into a deep microwave proof bowl.

    Sauce
    Mix brown sugar with the cocoa and scatter over top of globby pudding mix. Pour over the back of a spoon the boiled water and vanilla essence.

    Microwave on high for 10 minutes.

Baking Adventures continue















5 - 5 1/2 cups of flour
2 cups of warm water
Yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon oil

Prep the yeast in a large mixing bowl for 10 mins with the sugar and water wait for it to froth up with a plate on top.

Mix in 3 cups of flour till and the oil until you've got quite a nice smooth dough, then add the remaining two cups with the salt and kneed the dough till its elastic. Turn it out on a well floured bench or chopping board, kneed the shit out of it. Plop it back in a well oiled bowl, i used grease proof paper to spread oil around and let it rise for a few hours in a warm place. You can place a lid on top but make sure the plate or whatever your using has been greased so that the dough wont stick to it as it rises.

Once its nicely risen punch it down on a bench or chopping board with a little more flour so it doesn't stick, finally roll it out and get ready to prepare the filling.

Filling

5-10 Spanish sausages, diced
Half an onion
1 large carrot diced
1 cup of grated cheese

Fry the sausages onion and carrot together, add a little pepper for flavor. Place the filling in the center, roll the dough up and form a loaf. Its kinda tricky, very tasty though. Unlike i did put the cheese inside sprinkled on the filling not on top hehe. You can sprinkle stuff like sesame seeds and whole meal flour for a nicer crust, brush a little butter for a crispy crust. Bake at 180c or 356f until it sounds hollow when tapping, about 170c/338f in a fan forced oven. If you can pull off the meaty center do post pics, ima try again for sure.

Thanks. It didn't last long lol. To think this is how people used to eat regularly 100 years ago, when bread was real bread brought from a store. That's actually a big part of why people are seeing me making all these tasty things, i don't buy bread anymore because almost everything in the supermarket atleast in NZ has got rubbish ingredients in it. I wanted to start eating properly, and i do it on a low budget. Eat like a king on a commoners wage.

Eventually i hope to start making proper pies, home made pastry the works. Start up costs a bit cause i want some professional industry pie trays their not cheap. Iron ware and such. The plan is to keep my freezer regularly full of pies, almost never go hungry then and eat better than most people on high incomes. Pies are almost the perfect meal if made with quality ingredients. I'll post this amazing youtube vid at some point showing how to make a good pie.

I bet he didn't bake the bread, but hey least the man has presentation skills. I might make a tasty loaf of bread but dont expect it to look like the kings commissioned me for a afternoon snack.

Couple recent creations to share, been getting back into baking lately.

I read about how France's previous Prime Minister had bread baked for him by the top baker in France. Was reading how he bakes his bread learning about three day rises. I found the idea fascinating, the following pics are the result. It was very yeasty, lovely with eggs would of been very nice with some cheese.





Bon appétit

Due to a friend popping over tonight i got creative and decided to bake a favorite coffee chocolate cake recipe ive used over the years.





Dank














Cooking with cyka at 6


Ready for setting in fridge

Sunglasses ofc because you wanna look badass for the chicks in the event of losing a limb :cool:

New creation, French cheese cake. Was made for my sisters sons bday. Also the second cheese ive ever made, not the easiest thing to make.

The butter and cream cheese was made from scratch as was the pastry, over 50% of the cheese cake was made fresh. I'll provide the recipe in a second post. Enjoy Some Led Zeppelin whilst eye balling the pics


Heating the milk


Vinegar added


mmmmmm


First failed attempt at catching curds


Sorted


Curds ready for processing


Cheezy


Thats not butter this is butter


Butter n flour all good


Pastry clumpified


Who's got the biggest balls of all, Bon Scott would enjoy that


Base ready and i dont mean bass


Its teh cheeze only cheezyer


Yolk without white, the driver lost a wheel


Egg stuff


Ready for nukilating


Look good don't it? No cutting teh cheeze yet


possibly my finest creation


Teh cheeze was cut, had a fail. Feed back was very tasty, customers were satisfied. Overall 9/10 -1 for the cheeze cutting fail.

Note - dont attempt to move a whole cheeze cake with fish slices its a guaranteed fail.
