Blueberry Pancake By Oven

Original recipe :
http://m.xiachufang.com/recipe/100460858/
It’s a special way to make pancake, because oven is used instead of pan.

I made some change according to the original recipe above:  

Since I don’t have any weighing machine, I am not sure the accurate weight of all the ingredients I used.

Part A: 

Flour around 80g

Sugar around 30g

Baking soda 1 tsp

Salt 1/8 tsp

Mix all of them well.

  
Part B:

Egg 1

Milk around 150g

Yogurt around 25g

Oil ( I used canola oil) around 25g

Vanilla esscence 1 tsp

Mix them well.
 

1. Pour Part B into Part A. Stir till no flour can be seen.

2.Add some blueberries. Stir again.  

3.Preheat oven with 190 degree C. Before put into the oven, spread some blueberries on the surface of batter. Bake for 45 minutes.

Blueberries will burst and the house is full of fragrance. 
 

  

You can spread some icing sugar if you want.

  


Maple syrup will make it taste better.

Vanilla Cupcake

Original recipe:

In a large bowl mix flour (90g), baking soda (1 tsp), salt (1/8tsp, but if you use salted butter, you can delete salt).

Cream 60g butter till creamy and smooth. Add 70g sugar, mix them till light and fluffy. Then add in 2 small eggs (one at a time) and 1/2 tsp vanilla.

Add flour mixture into butter mixture. First, 1/3 flour mixture, 15g milk. Then 1/3 flour mixture, another 15 g milk. And last add in all the rest flour mixture.

Beat till flour all mix in.

Preheat oven to 180 degree C and bake for 17-20 mins.


These cupcakes are very moist.


I also made buttery frosting according to the video. Very creamy.

Black Sesame Round Bun And Mini-burger 

I promised my husband that I would make hamburger for him. And I tried the other day.
First, I baked black sesame round bun.

Ingredients:

Bread flour around 160g

Plain flour around 40g

Sugar around 30g
Salt around 3 g
Yeast around 3 g
Add in milk around 60g and 3/4 of one egg.

1. When everything mixed well, add in black sesames. And keep kneading until the dough becomes less sticky.

2. Cut in 15g butter. Just knead, knead and knead. If you are really stressed out recently, it’s a good way to release your negetive energy outwardly. You can even punch the dough. When the butter is completely absorbed by the dough, you can stop and take a rest. Kneading really takes a while.

3. Cover the bowl with a wrap or wet towel until it expands to 1.5 or twice of its size.

4. Divide the dough into several little even-sized dough. Knead them to let the inside air out and make them in round shape.

5. Put the small dough on the baking pan and put the baking pan into the oven. Place a bowl of hot water under the baking pan. If the water gets cold, replace it with another bowl of hot water.

When the small dough expands again to 1.5 or twice of their size, they can be taken out.

6. Brush the dough with the rest 1/4 egg.

7. Preheat the oven with 180 degree C. And bake them for around 18 mins.

The bun part is done.

I cut the round bun into two parts. In the middle I put carriage, tomato slice, cheese and pork chop. And make them mini-hamburgers.


You can design your own burger with this round bun, and of course you can make it bigger if you want.

This round bun can also be good if you just spread jam in it.

Fudgy Fudge Pie

I found this amazing recipe on http://www.food.comIt’s also very easy and simple.

http://www.food.com/recipe/fudgy-fudge-pie-75432

I made a little change according to it:

Butter 120g

Flour 35g

Cocoa powder 30g

Sugar 150g ( I already reduced sugar based on original recipe but still found it is very sweet.)

Eggs 2
Procedure is almost same as original recipe:

1. Melt butter, add flour, cocoa powder and sugar.

2. Add in eggs. Stir well.

3. Pour into pie plate.

4. Preheat oven to 190 degree C, bake for around 30 mins. (After 30 mins, the edge is a little burnt, so I think maybe 25 mins is also fine.)

In the plate topped with some cream and fruits. It is very soft inside actually. Outside is a bit crunchy.
