Chocolate Mint Mug Cake

I wanted to do quick videos on quick cakes that I can make on a whim.  I found this recipe for a mug cake.  This recipe is very generous for one person.  It is also supricingly very moist.  I bet you this is perfect steamed in a steamer as well.  Well that is another project for another day.  This is the link to the original recipe https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2405644/microwave-mug-cake ... In the original recipe it calls for 4 tablespoons of castor sugar.  I used 3 tablespoons white sugar instead of 4 tablespoon castor sugar. I also added a drop of peppermint essential oil.  This is so easy and quick you can even bake this during coffee breaks.  All you need to do is premeasure all the dry ingreadients and place everything in a ziploc bag.  The wet ingredients (with the excption of can all be placed in mason jar

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.



Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
toothpicks
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  


The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
