Okay, odd question time. Is ladyfingers spelt “ladyfingers” or “lady fingers”? I’m always confused by that.
So in case you can’t tell, this week’s entry is ladyfingers. This is actually a surprisingly easy recipe. My friend actually asked me today if they were hard to make and I told her it was one of the easiest recipes I had ever worked with.
So here’s the deal:they are both called cheesecake, so what is the difference between Japanese cheesecake and the usual cheesecake we know and enjoy?
For one, Japanese cheesecake easily has at least half the amount of cream cheese that is found in our regular cheesecake. This makes the cake much lighter and less guilty for mass consumption. The recipe includes flour, which really makes it more cake than cheese, so it is possible to pick it up with your hands without worrying about the gooey feeling cheesecake has.
Hello to another week of Curiosity to the Oven! This week, I’m featuring pancakes.
So I know that pancakes are breakfast food, but (I guess I’m just odd) I’m calling these midnight pancakes. I like to have breakfast food in the middle of the night, anything from scrambled eggs to cereal. My brother and I have breakfast for dinner at least once a year. If breakfast is so good first thing in the morning, nothing says it cant be equally as good at night.
Feel free to change the amount of sugar in the recipe. I prefer things less sweet, so if it’s not sweet enough for your sweet tooth then add more.
Cappuccino Cupcakes This recipe was given to me by a friend, the original recipe was her mother’s. I took the recipe and scaled down some of the ingredients and played with it till I was happy. I love the smell of cappuccino, sadly I happen to be allergic to coffee so I cant taste it. That means that, yes, I am missing out on a “wonderful” aspect of life. Oh well, I will just have to make do with my tea.
This is actually the first time I’m trying out this recipe. It’s a fairly simple recipe though so I figured it cant fail as badly.
My friend’s birthday is actually a week after mine and I have promised to make her a birthday cake. The criteria, however, was to make a chocolate lasagna. What the hell is chocolate lasagna? So I spent a week trying out ways to make a cake look like a lasagna. One of the things I decided was instead of pasta, I would put in a chocolate layer instead. So voila, I needed to make a chocolate filling.
As I said before, this chocolate ganache is actually really easy. It takes almost no time to put together.
