First time lucky : Recipes !

26 Mar
 
Did a few things that was my first try today.
just felt like doing something new (:
and i did.

been looking and reading blogs.
both cooking and baking ones.
and found quite a number of things i wanna make and bake!
just gets my stress or like emotions away.
away from myself.
which is good. and therapeutic (:

SO! hehe
today i made this dish for dinner called
Three Emporer Egg. haha.
sounds profound. but it’s super easy! hehe
and it has everything my baby likes.
so i thought of giving it a try.

it turned out pretty good! i must say. hehe
Lester really likes it. so I am really glad (:

I made this super easy
2 mins chocolate cake
for a quick chocolate craving fix! hehe
i know. not the conventional kind to make a cake.
but its the best i could come up with
in the shortest time! (:

it’s called Mug Cake!
and it’s exactly what it looks like.
making a cake in your mug!
and in the microwave.
I followed all the instructions. and it said on high for 3mins.
and mine came out a bit overdone.
so I would say. 2 mins and it would be nice, and almost lava cake-ish. hehe

can tell it’s pretty dry and stuff.
but it was still yummy! (: hehe
just need to shorten the time in the microwave.
and it would be perfect.
so give it a try if you need a quick choc fix! hehe

Recipes :

Three Emperor Egg

4 normal chicken eggs
1 century egg
1 salted egg
1/2 cup water
1 pinch of white pepper

Methods : 

1. Fill a large pot of water and bring it to boil (or if you have your own methods of steaming, please use it!)
2. Beat all the chicken eggs with the water in a bowl. (water makes the egg smoother and lighter)
3. Add the century egg, salted egg and pepper and stir well.
4. Steam is for about 15 mins and shake the bowl to see if it’s ready.
If the egg is wobbly but firm, then it’s ready to be served. If not, put it in for 5 mins intervals.
5. Before serving, drizzle a bit of sesame oil and a good dash of soy sauce.
Sprinkle some fried shallots (or very fine fried ginger).

Mug Cake

4 tablespoon of plain flour
4 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tablespoon of milk
3 tablespoon of oil
3 tablespoon of chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract

Methods :

1. Add dry ingredients into a bowl
2. Add the egg and mix well. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well again.
Add the chocolate chips and vanilla and mix again.
3. Pour mixture into your mug, and put in in the microwave for 2 mins at HIGH.

PS: the cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t worry. it will be fine! (:
Let it cool and sprinkle some icing sugar to make it look pretty!

EAT!
*slurp*

Enjoy dearies. It’s all good and easy and fun!
