yay~! I love baking ^^

I actually posted this recipe awhile back, in my ask me thread, I believe. Posting it here will get more attention, though ^^

Category: Dessert
Style: meh. Old family recipe
Servings: however many you want =D

It's a norweigen caramel cake (not really caramel though >.>) It's sweet and DELICIOUS! Especially when eaten warm <3 it's fairly simple to make, but it gets eaten really fast ;)

Norweigan Caramel Almond Cake

Cake:
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 cups of sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 eggs, room temperature
1 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup milk

In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. with mixer, in a seperate bowl beat eggs untill they are foamy, beat in sugar gradually, and beat the mixture until it is thick and pale. Beat in the butter, vanilla and milk, add the flour mixture from earlier, and beat the batter until it is just combined. Pour batter into a tube pan coated with cooking spray and bake the cake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees farenheit for 35-40 minutes. let the cake cool completely in the pan, then, flip the pan onto a plate and remove.

Topping:

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into bits
2/3 cup of sugar
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted

In a skillet, combine the cream and sugar, cook over moderate heat stirring, until the sugar is dissolved and stir in the butter. bring to a boil, stirring it occaisonally, until it is slightly thickened, then add the almonds.

Put the cake on a baking sheet, spoon the topping over it, put the cake in the oven for a minute or two, or until the almonds are golden. Then let cool a bit and eat!!




I made that cake a few months ago. SOooooooo good <3 Especially when warm :3

YaY, a cooking thread! ^^
What a great initiative!
I love cooking... now I just need to find a good recipe to post here...

*walks away trying to find a decent recipe*


ps: I'm getting hungry when I look at this thread, especially when I look at LadyH.'s delicious cake..... *drool* :p


*I'm back!*
Found a great one:


Name : Chocolate Mousse
Category : Dessert
Style : Belgian (I’m from the land of chocolate XD )
Servings: 4 to 6

Description:
I know lots of chocolate dishes and because I’m from Belgium I thought I may want to make something with chocolate. My mother can also make some heavenly chocolate mousse, so that’s maybe why I chose this one. ^^

Ingredients:
6 ounces (175 grams) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups (360 ml) heavy whipping cream
4 to 5 large eggs
1/3 cup (66 grams) granulated white sugar (or 2 packages of vanilla suger, if you like that one better)
1/4 cup (60 ml) water

Garnish:
Fresh Raspberries
Shaved Chocolate


Directions :

* Melt the chocolate with the water “au bain marie”° or on a very tender heating source.
°
”au bain marie” is a cooking term; you take a large cooking pot in which a smaller cooking pot can hang, fill the large one with water and the small one with the chocolate and the 60 ml of water. Now let the water in the big one come to the boil, that way the chocolate in the small one will melt without burning. Remember to keep stirring the chocolate!

* Whisk together the egg yolks with the sugar until well combined, then add the molten chocolate.

* Whip the whipping cream until it starts to look like whipped cream :eyeroll .

* Gently add the whipped cream to the sugar-yolk-chocolate-mixture.

* Then whip/ beat the egg whites to a snowy-foam and finally add also this with the other mixture.

* Once everything is mixed you have to stop mixing!!! Only mix as much as necessary, ‘cause “over-mixing” may cause the “mousse” to fail! (There has to be enough air in the mixture.)

* Finally you may pour the yummy chocolate mousse in their pre-destined bowls.

* Put them for at least one hour in the refrigerator before serving.

* Right before serving you can add the chocolate shavings and a raspberry if you like.

Now you’re totally done! Enjoy!!!


Picture:

I don't have one at the moment but I think we all know what to think when we hear the word chocolate mousse. :amuse

mmm, these recipes sound yummy :3

Here's another of my favorites:

Name of Dish: Modified Chicken Salad
Category: Main course
Style: American? XD I dunno
Servings: 6 or 7, about.

Description: This is a recipe for chicken that can be used as a sammich filling or on crackers. My mom taught me how to make it, since I don't like traditional chicken salad.

Ingredients:

1 can of shredded chicken (delicious <3)
slivered almonds
soy sauce
teriyaki sauce
bacon bits
mayonnaise


Direction: dump chicken into bowl, and use forks to pull apart chicken so it's shredded. Add about 3 or 4 large spoonfuls of mayonnaise (more if you prefer) and mix with fork until mixed. add bacon bits and almonds, mix. Add a teaspoon of teriyaki sauce and a teaspoon of soy sauce (again, more if you prefer). Spread on bread or crackers and enjoy <3

Pictures: none =( maybe later <3

and here i thought i was the only guy that cooked ^^; im glad there are other guys posting in here.

Name of Dish: Chocolate Drope Cookies
Category: Dessert
Style: well as far as i know cookies came from england :s but i have no idea where this recipe came from. its ban passed down four generations in my family, getting changed a little bit every year.
Servings: ~ 3 dozen (36)

Description: these are somthing my family associates largly with christmas, its the only time we make them. i learned this version of the recipe from my mom, who got it from her mom, from her mom. only two of my sisters cook them (out of 7 siblings). its kinda spicy, but not that bad. and as far as i know it isnt bad for anyone ^^; they're best with frosting, but i dont know the recipe for the kind my mom makes (i have to bug her for it next year)

Ingredients:
1 egg
1 cup brown sugar (240 ml)
1 tsp. vanilla (4.9 ml)
1/2 cup butter (120 ml)
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (56 grams, i think :s)
1/2 cup milk (120 ml)
1 1/2 cups flour (360 ml)
1 tsp. salt (4.9 ml)
2 tsp. cinnamon (9.8 ml)
1 tsp. nutmeg (4.9 ml)
1/2 tsp. cloves (2.5 ml)
a big mixing bowl


Direction: melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so. make sure its entirly melted. beat the egg & brown sugar until light, then add vanilla, then add to the butter/chocolate. Add the dry ingredients and milk one at a time while stirring. i strongly suggest adding the flour 1/2 cup at a time, and waiting until it is completly blended before adding more. this says use a greased cookiesheet, but i remember ever remember greasing it :s but maybe you should just to be careful. well anyways, drop then onto the cookiesheet. curl up your index finger, and look down at it. it should be about that big. change as you feel fit. bake @ 350 degress Fahrenheit (~177 degrees Celcius) for 8-10 mins)


i dont have any pictures, nor can i find any, but they should look similar to this. not as tall, though

I want to post pictures, but I don't have a working digital camera atm.

Dish: Tsatsiki - Delicious yogurt sauce, goes great with grilled meat, and fish, and on bread etc Name of Place here what your recipe will make (i.e.: Fruit Cake, T-Bone Steak, Caesar Salad, etc.)
Category: Place Here type of Dish (i.e.: Soup, Dessert, Cake, Salad, Main Course, Snack, Drinks, etc.)
Style: Greek
Servings: Uhh.. depends on how much you make/eat, 2-5 typically.
(Easy)
- 1 container of Goat milk yogurt (cow is fine, but goat is preferable)
- 1 Cucumber
- 2 Cloves of Garlic

Shred the cucumber using a cheese grater, don't use a mixer, it tastes better when it's grated, and the juice seperates; shred the garlic as well. Traditionally, you're supposed to discard the cucumber juice, and only use the pieces, but I like to mix in the juice first, and then the cucumber and garlic, that way the sauce gets extra kick (spice taste). Serve with pretty much anything.

Smoked Salmon Pizza (Medium - meh)
Category - Lunch/Dinner
Type - mediterranean (Do salmon even swim in that sea though?)
Servings - 1 (hungry) - 3

- Pizza Dough (homemade) I followed this recipe
- Tomato Sauce (also homemade)
- Pizza toppings of your choice (I used mixed peppers, some red, yellows and mushrooms
- Cream Cheese
- Smoked Salmon
- Parmesan cheese

Once the Dough was ready (took a couple of hours), I made a tomato sauce from some mushroom spaghetti (Ragu) tomato sauce. I added a little red wine, basil, paprika, water, oil and cooked for 5 minutes until it thickened a bit.

I spread the dough by hand, and I've never worked at a pizza place so I don't know how to make it New York thin, so it was a little thick (I like it bready anyway), I cooked the dough for about 30 minutes first (because if I put the topings on first, and they cook, the dough's inside remains uncooked and yucky, trial and error taught me this), the dough shouldn't get dark, just a little light light brown at 400F (200C). I took out the semi-cooked dough, and I added the tomato sauce, mushrooms and peppers, cooked that for 15 minutes? And then took it out again, and added the smoked salmon (ripped apart by hand), and cream cheese (left chunky), with some parm for about 10 more minutes, until the cheese got a little dark (see picture).

Now I'm not sure what I did (this was 3 years ago), but the salmon didn't get grey as it cooked. I've made smoked salmon pizza/pasta before and the salmon cooked and got grey, but this time it didn't, so I'm not sure how I pulled that off. Anyway, if you've made homemade pizza before you can adjust the times and temprature based on your own experience, final result is awesome, I've actually finished the pie by myself (twice X_x), most of the time, it serves 3, 2-3 slices each.


Lenten Pita (pie) of the Sea - Orthodox Christians fast from meat and dairies before easter, and I had to come up with a seafood pie for.. something my sister asked for. But, I have to be honest, everyone liked it, and it was really really good. (Ridiculously Overcomplicated? You bet! HARD)
Style - If you watch too much Food Network, and you're stressed because it's holiday season, and you have 2-3 recipes you've been playing around with, and your sister suddenly calls you up and asks you to prepare something, meanwhile you can't use HALF your kitchen because you're fasting... and its 4am because you were on the phone with your girlfriend all day, that's the style.
Category - Dinner
Servings - 5-6
Shrimp Soup (stock)

1 cup water

A dozen shrimp, 3-4 handfuls cut into two

2 Chopped scallions

4 Chopped baby carrots

A little Soy Sauce for color + taste

dill stock (knorr thing)

A dash of soymilk for taste/thickening/color

Oregano or other green spice of choice (Basil? Mint?)

Salt (surprisingly a little is ok) and Pepper

Boil water, add knorr stock of choice. Add carrots and scallions, once the water starts boiling again, add soy sauce and soymilk until you get a bit of color (don’t overdo it). Add Shrimp and boil until the color blends into a brownish tan color. It won’t be black, and it won’t be clear, it’ll turn into a French soupy color.

Drain Soup stock into a separate container, leave the other ingredients in the pot.

Stir Fry (oil and spice instead of buying a store flavor, that may be non-lenten)

Margarine (judge how much after you start frying, start with half a stick)

Minced Garlic (2-4)

1-2 Shallots

Half a dozen sliced Mushrooms

¼ or ½ (forgot how much it was, it was half of what the package comes in) Chopped up Crab-meat (mine was pre-chopped and super expensive) *Note, NOT immitation, real crab meat.

Some shrimp cut into two

A dozen Scallops

Sesame seeds (lots)

Salt/Pepper

Add margarine, toss in garlic, shallots and mushrooms. Add desireable salt/pepper onto chopped Crabmeat and Scallops, and then put them into the stir fry. Add a dash of soy sauce if you want, and place in the shrimp. Season with lots of sesame seeds, and if you did not use Soy sauce, more salt/pepper.

Filling

1 pkg silken(?) tofu

3-4 tblsp Oil (stir fry)

½ tbl soy sauce (if not in stir fry, check label)

2 tbl stock (from previously made soup soup)

½ a lemon’s juice (maybe whole, depends on final consistency)

*Dry Mashed potato flakes

*(Not essential or 100% necessary if you can’t use them, but I did and I liked the bit of potato flavor, they're a thickening agent.)

Put Tofu in a large bowl, add the lemon juice and mix/stir with a fork. Add in oil/soy, and stock. Mix well until it has once consistency. If it’s too loose, add some flour (use your better judgement), if it’s too firm add more lemon juice and if necessary some more soup stock.

Now, put a little less than half of the mix in the soup (dry ingredients) and mix with a spoon. If there isn’t enough, add a little of the stock until it gets a pie filling, pre-cooked) consistency.

Add the rest of the mixture into the stir-fry and mix with a spoon, add some soy milk if the mixture is not thick enough and add potato flakes, do some chemistry until you get the pie-filling consistency which is a little tighter than the soup consistency

Pie (finally)

Phillo dough thick

Phillo dough thin

Oil

Soy Milk

Sesame seeds

Oregano (or other green spice of choice)

Breadcrumbs

Preaheat 350

Get two small bowls, put a little oil in one, a little soymilk in the other. Start spreading 4 sheets of thick dough on the bottom of the pan, add one sheet of thin if necessary/want to. Brush some soymilk onto the top layer

Pour the stir fry mix into the pie and spread, cover it with half the philla’s corners. Add 2 thin sheets on top, and then one thick one, add 2 more thin sheets on top. Brush some soy milk onto top layer.

Pour in soup mix and spread it. Add a sheet of thin philo on top and brush with soy milk. Place another thin sheet on top carefully and continue adding 3-5 more sheets the regular way (with oil).

On the last (top) sheet brush with soymilk and pour breadcrumbs and oregano on top. If you want you can add a loose top layer, brush it with soy milk and pour sesame seeds on it.

Put into oven for 350 until it gets a good color, and when you put a knife in it, it comes out dry. Something around 45 min maybe?

You can enjoy/drink the rest of the soup stock, or save it for more soup/something else or toss it out.

I also make a REALLY really good burger... but I can't share the recipe, because.. I'm silly like that and burger recipes are meant to be kept secret, lest some jerk steal them and opens up a burger place.

Some 3 year old pictures of things I had made, when my dig camera DID work =/

I think it's like Sanji says though, the fresher and better the ingredients you start with, the better the result.
Which is also a shame, because when you have really great starting ingredients, it's better to eat them raw/fresh in a salad or at least not cooked (vegetables/fruit, not meat =p)

Oh, I also tried those fruit skewers he made in Skypeia (minus rat, snake and other vermin meat). I used scallops and shrimp, orange and lemon slices. It was good, I topped it with some juice from the lemon and orange and some pepper(love pepper)

If you ever get the chance, try fried plantains with salsa and melted cheese by the way, it's really good and surprisingly simple latin dish.
