Post your Cooking!

Recommended Posts

Inspired by the bake a cake in 5 mins thread started by Caris, I got to thinking, why don't we have a place to post all of our culinary creations?

 

Post anything food related that you've made recently in here, it could be what you had for a specific meal that turned out really nice, a cake that you made for someone or even some random concuction 'crafted' after having a few cans, whatever as long as it's something you cooked yourself basically.

 

I'll start the ball rolling with my second 'cup-cake' attempt that I made today...

It actually turned out like a proper cake this time, I just followed the instuctions 'almost' to the letter and remembered to line the cup with a small amount of butter so that it wouldn't stick and mixed it well, then when it was done I served it with Toffee Ice cream, it was good. :smile:

 

Over to you KNEE!

Sure it is! It involves a bit more than that. There's measuring, mixing, and...button pressing! :D

Hehe, what a coincidence, as I almost revived my old cooking thread this week to post a cupcake recipe. Guess I'll just post it in here now! =P

 

Will post it in spoiler tags as there's quite a few pictures going with it. X3

 

This is what we'll be making! Though mine didn't look anything like the one in the picture, but that's fine as they tasted great anyway. =P

Ingredients for about 24 cupcakes:

  • 115 gr pure chocolate, broken in pieces
  • about 1 tablespoon of water
  • 275 gr flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • half a teaspoon baking soda
  • tiny bit of salt
  • 300 gr brown sugar
  • 175 gr butter (room temperature)
  • 150 ml milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla-essence
  • 3 eggs

 

For the icing:

  • 40 gr butter
  • 115 gr icing sugar
  • half a teaspoon of vanilla-essence
  • 1-2 tablespoons of milk

 

Foto63.jpg

 

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. You can already grease up the baking plate (if you have one for cupcakes) and put in the paper holders, or just use holders like I did. But we didn't do this until last, so you don't have to do this yet.

 

Step 2:

First we'll make the icing. Put the butter in a bowl and make it soft (just use a wooden spoon).

Now take the icing sugar and put it in bit by bit (stir in a bit, then when it's nicely mixed put in some more).

Foto66-1.jpg

Foto67-1.jpg

Now add in the vanilla-essence and then add in the milk bit by bit until you get a nice, smooth mixture.

Foto69.jpg

 

Step 3:

Put the chocolate in a pan, which you in turn put in a slightly bigger pan filled with water. Heat this (don't boil) to let the chocolate melt. Add in some water with the chocolate as well (about 1 tablespoon).

 

Take a bowl, and sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, the salt and the brown sugar.

Foto70-1.jpg

Add in the chocolate, butter, milk and vanilla-essence.

 

Step 4:

Grab a mixer and mix the ingredients until it's smooth. Turn it up to the highest setting and mix for 2 more minutes.

Foto71-1.jpg

Add in the eggs; after every egg, mix for another minute.

Foto73.jpg

If your mixture is nice and smooth, it's time to add it in the cupcake holders!

Foto75-1.jpg

 

Step 5:

Bake the cakes for about 20-25 minutes (took 25 minutes for mine).

Foto82.jpg

Take them out and let them cool down for about 10 minutes.

Foto76.jpg

Once they are cool enough, grab your icing and just spread it on top of the cupcakes with a knife.

Et voilà! You should now have some pretty yummy cupcakes to feast on! =D

I was also looking at cupcake cooking books to buy this week, they look so yummy! You should definitely get that book! And then post your yummy creations in here!

I'd like to bake more often (or rather, I'd like to eat the end products more often). Bit of a nuisance though because my housemate is alergic to wheat and dairy so its a lot of faffing around buuuuuut we did make this birthday cake:

That's absolutely amazing. I mean it looks like an actual wii-mote.

 

Don't be ridiculous, that IS a Wii mote. The cake is on the left.

This is actually really nice, and really simple.

You mentioned in the messy room/house topic you didn't leave your house like that kitchen picture Jay? Yet you didn't manage to uncover that colourful piece of bread?

 

C'maahn, don't bullshit us.

I personally don't see what's wrong with the egg n' bacon n' sausage picture :P I can tell you it came out tasty as fuck. The bacon is simply really cheap bacon and the eggs are simply cracked and cooked in any space available on the pan. They taste no different, so clearly you guys are just shallow mofos!

 

As for waht eevil is saying - I don't quite follow -- I didn't post any kitchen picture, BUT! This part-loaf of bread was kinda-on-purpose left on the side for, like, a month, so yeah.

S'true, cheap bacon and eggs often look like that when fried, nothing wrong with them though. :smile:

 

Also lol at the bread mouldage. :laughing:

No no. I think it was someone else who posted a really bad looking kitchen [whether it was actually theirs wasn't said I think], but I remember you saying your kitchen/house was never that bad.

Tonight we made (free from) chocolate cornflower cakes!

 

They taste a lot better than this picture makes out:

Probably should have also taken a snap of the tasty (veggie) Spaghetti Bolognese I made earlier. Ah well.

Ah! I got you. Well with the flatties there is sometimes confusion over ownership of bread -- I thought it was theirs and they thought it was mine (it was mine) so we both bought other loaves of bread while this one sat and disintegrated itself.

That's funny, I seem to remember you saying "lol im gonna leave my bread here with my 10 month old cake and see what happens"

 

And that pancake is mine... it's a tortilla, it was never cooked and I drew the face!
