A Little Something: Milk Candy

7 Nov

Willy Wonka and I should be bestfriends. And so as insulin. 😀 Pretending we’re out from the midst of realism I’d give just about everything to plunge myself in a chocolate river – where every drop is of the finest quality of chocolate. OH YUM! I wish diabetes never existed so I won’t have to hold myself back of injecting sugar into my veins. Anyway, here’s a little something to satisfy the lust.
I wanted to make a cake BUT lazing on some other things always overpowers the hardworking spirit in me.

 

Why make an effort when you can gorge it in minutes? Here I bought myself some treats 😉

Take 2! Pan de Pastel

12 Jul

This has failed me twice already! I really want this bread but it doesn’t appear to be wanting me 😦 HELP!!! The plan: Bake a soft, cheesy yet sweet bread like that of Ensaymada. Well that was the plan but it was a disaster. I managed to go through all that mixing and rolling the dough but when I got to the point where you put the filling in and cut it…. 😦 sadness huhu. I did not take a picture of the finished good. Just moved on and happily made Cookies and Cream Cheesy Brownies and Cocoa Brownies for a paid order 😉

 

 

 

I want to say THANKS SOO MUCH to all of you for asking me to make you one of these brownies. I had over 30 orders for the month of June. Cheeers!!

Tres Leches: Dulce de Leche Cake

1 Jun

Last month almost every week that I keep myself busy doing something that could fill up idle times. This was the last one I made last April then weeks followed before I made the next. Now I’m trying to get back on track again. Soon as I have time I’d love to try Lasagna. I soo love pasta but I was able to make Baked Mac since I started learning cooking. You see I know I love pasta but I also love chocolates as much as I love pasta. crazy!

Since it’s my Pops “10th after golden years birthday” – as what my bro said.. I wanted to make something new – i mean not chocolate but still gives those natural insulin a kick. So after flexing my google muscles I found this Dulce de Leche Cake. Mmmm sounds delightful. Since one of us could eat the half of the cake by herself I made two batches! yes! My Aunt and cousins was able to have a taste of it too!

This cake is different. I think I can go away with this than a chocolate cake. I love the milky taste of the filling and the cake itself. This is definitely a classic and way over the top! But tough luck as it always turns out with whipped cream I make. It was messy again.. But now I know what I’m doing wrong. But whatever it is, the cake still makes up for the icing.

 

Separating yolks from whites has always been the hardest step for me. Million thanks to this separator as it saves me dozens of eggs to destroy hurrrah! 😀

 

Add in cake flour, eggs, butter and others and bake away!

 

Nice golden brown right there. I wish I could find a ready to use dulce de leche it would really save me an hour and a half of time making these.

Tada!!! lols. As usual it wasn’t the nicest looking one but is definitely divine.

Happy Senior’s Day!!!
