Recipe: Orange and Olive Oil Syrup Cake

My cousin shared me a link of cake recipe this morning. He tried it last time he visited NZ. The scrumptious Orange and Olive Oil Syrup Cake, which has been served as a dessert at formal dinners at New Zealand’s Government House (the Governor General’s main residence) as well as at morning and afternoon teas for visiting dignitaries. This post is a note for myself, I will make it after this terrible storm ends.

Cake Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups of stale white bread crumbs
  • 1 cup of white or castor sugar
  • 1 cup of ground almonds
  • 1½ tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of olive oil (or any other vegetable oil such as sunflower. The more complex the oil the more complex the cake)
  • 4 eggs
  • Zest of 1 large orange
  • Zest of 1 un-waxed lemon

Syrup Ingredients

  • Juice and zest of 1 large orange
  • Juice and zest of 1 un-waxed lemon
  • 1/3 cup, white or castor sugar
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 x cinnamon stick
  • Greek yoghurt or cream fraiche to serve.

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 175 degrees C.
  • Line a 20cm spring form cake tin with baking parchment.
  • In one bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, sugar, ground almonds and baking powder.
  • In another bowl whisk the eggs and olive oil together, add the citrus zest and pour into the dry ingredients. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and bake for 40 to 50 min until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean when tested.
  • While the cake is baking, make the syrup.
  • Zest large strips of the orange and lemon with a vegetable peeler (for decoration) and place in a heavy bottomed small sauce pan.
  • Add the sugar and strained juice of the fruit along with the spices.
  • Heat gently, allowing the sugar to dissolve and simmer for three minutes. Leave aside.
  • When cake is ready and just out of the oven, skewer across the surface of the cake to allow the syrup to penetrate. Pour over the syrup while hot. (Let the cake sit on a plate in it’s tin and keep reapplying syrup if it leaks through. Allow to cool.
  • Remove from cake tin and serve with Greek yoghurt or cream fraiche.
  • This cake will keep particularly well.

KitKat, I’m Missing You Badly!

DSC06736-1024x577Nestlé Japan has brought KitKat to a new level, with all of the weird and wacky flavors…

In Japan, each region has their own limited edition flavor KitKat that reflects the food specialty of the area so you would normally have to travel there to get hold of some.

Note: The world’s first ever KitKat boutique opens in Japan

“KitKat fans in Japan have been able to choose from varieties including Purple Potato, Cinnamon Cookie, European Cheese, Bean Cake and Wasabi – unwrapping sticks of pale green, delicate pink and lilac chocolate that look and taste very different from those anywhere else in the world.

These special varieties are available only in certain regions of Japan, using ingredients and flavors linked to the local area. KitKat Kobe Pudding, for example, has a creamy custard pudding flavor, with a hint of citrus and is only available in Kobe.”

Only in Japan

  • Roasted Tea
  • Strawberry Cheesecake
  • Rum Raisin
  • Apple
  • Green Tea
  • Mandarin and Lemon
  • Azuki Red Bean Toast
  • Wasabi

P.S: I’m not KitKat addict, but I’m missing Uji Matcha KitKat badly, my most favorite one =.=~

Công thức làm Tiramisu bằng phô mai con bò cười

Mình tình cờ đọc được công thức này trên facebook và đã làm thành công, nên muốn chia sẻ với mọi người. Cách làm này phù hợp với những bạn không có điều kiện làm theo công thức truyền thống có mascarpone và bánh ladyfingers.

Nguyên liệu:

  • Một gói bột Milo (loại thông thường mua ở chợ/siêu thị/tạp hóa)
  • 600g whipping cream
  • Cốt bánh gato thông thường
  • 6 miếng phô mai con bò cười
  • 1/2 bát ăn cơm đường
  • Cà phê đen pha phin
  • 1 chén rượu rum/brandy/baileys/kahlua (tùy mọi người có rượu gì thì dùng rượu đó)

Cách làm:

  • Whipping cream đánh bông bằng máy hoặc bằng tay, không để dính chút nước nào nhé.
  • Phô mai và đường cho vào lò vi sóng khoảng 40s cho tan chảy, sau đó để nguội.
  • Trộn hỗn hợp phô mai và 1/2 chén rượu vào whipping.
  • Trộn 1/2 chén rượu còn lại vào cà phê phin để tạo hỗn hợp nhúng bánh
  • Cốt bánh dày hay mỏng tùy mọi người, xếp 1 lớp bánh, phết 1 lớp cà phê rượu, rồi 1 lớp whipping, cho đến khi hết bánh. Lớp trên cùng rắc milo. Nếu thích có thể thêm chocolate bào.
  • Cho vào tủ lạnh 1 đêm là vừa đủ đông đặc và kết dính, có độ mềm vừa phải.

Chúc mọi người thành công trong công cuộc thưởng thức tiramisu ^^!
