Waarom trek sekere cupcakes se papiertjies weg en sekere nie ?

HOEKOM TREK MY CUPCAKES WEG VAN DIE PAPIERTJIE AF:

Lede se insette:

Marieta van Bladeren Ek kry dit soms – nogal met fancy duurder papiertjies. Nie met my cheepo wit gewones nie!!

Catherine Izatt As die papier koppies van ‘n soort waspapier gemaak is, sal hy weg trek. Die ou soort is die beste

Ethel Nel Ek bak baie cupcakes… olie in… en die wortelkoek ook. So by die 2de dag trek papiertjies bietjie weg. Dit is omdat die koek so lekker klam is. Ek bak gewone cupcakes so 15 min en wortelkoek 17 min. As ek die cupcake versier dan trek ek die mes met icing so teen die kante van die cupcake… so die icing hou die papiertjie dan vas aan die koek. As ek met die versierbuis bo werk dan vang ek die kante van die papiertjie. Ek spuit wel die papier bietjie maar nie die pan self nie.

Doreen Koen Ek het ook agtergekom dat resepte met olie ipv botter meer “plak” aan die houertjies. Ek bak myne net tot gaar. Gewoontlik 160 grade so vir 15 minute, soms klein bietjie minder.

Jeanette Hattingh Fourie Die goud en silwer papiertjies doen dit graag! Hulle het ook vir my gese dis as mens dit te gou toemaak. Maar ek weet nie. Myne ook oliebasis en trek nie weg nie.

Elouise Bellingan Hattingh ek het oorgeskakel na n olie resep (nie die botter een nie). bak hulle dalk ook n bietjie langer totdat hulle n klein bietjie droer is

Liezel Van der Merwe Glo my dit werk, jy moenie jou papiertjies of pannetjie spuit nie

Lilly Pretorius Moet nie jou pan spuit nie, myne het dit nog nooit gedoen nie, kan dalk ook wees as hy te lank bak dat hy droog word en wegtrek.

Hetta Meiring Ek dink ook dit moet minder bak

Lunette Cabaco BAk hulle so 2 minute korter, bak dalk net net te lank

Before serving, top with more strawberries, diced kiwi, and a drizzle of sweetened cream. Makes 6-8 servings.

HINT: The higher quality ricotta you choose, the better this will taste. Don’t skimp!

HINT: Substitute the vanilla pudding mix with other pudding flavors like cheesecake, lemon, or coconut cream for a fun alternative.

Easy Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Kankana

I am highly aware that this may not be the right track to detox or cleanse the body after the festive joyful season, but this is positively the way to warm up on a cozy winter night. The one good thing about this homemade hot chocolate recipe, which I learned from Martha Stewart, is that, it has no chocolate! It’s a mix of cocoa powder, sugar and some salt to blend the flavour. All I do is heat a cup of milk in microwave, swirl couple teaspoons of the homemade hot cocoa mix and gulp it down with absolute pleasure.

Here is a piece of health information for you that you might or might not know. Cocoa contains a large amount of antioxidants which is said to helps prevent cancer or any heart disease. Believe it on not, there was a time when hot chocolate was served as a medicinal drink. How cool is that huh!

It would probably take less than 5 minute to make this mixture. Once done, store it in an airtight container and you are good to go for the whole season. You can swirl it with coconut milk or almond milk; flavour it up with cinnamon powder or nutmeg powder. I like mine with vanilla, so I added homemade vanilla sugar in the mixture.

If you never made vanilla sugar before, go ahead and give it a try. You will love it, not only in this drink but also in other sweet treats! I always have a sugar jar with couple of split vanilla beans in it and once the sugar gets over, I just pour in more sugar in the jar. It smells heavenly!

Vanilla Sugar: Split vanilla beans in the center. Scrape it and drop in an airtight container with the sugar.  Dig the beans too in the sugar.  Let it sit and flavour up for 2 weeks before you start using it.

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

www.jasonandshawnda.com

Rich and decadent homemade hot cocoa/hot chocolate mix made with real chocolate.

Ingredients

2 vanilla beans

4 cups granulated sugar

680gr  high-quality semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

255 gr dark chocolate, coarsely chopped

2 cups Dutch process cocoa (or any good quality cocoa)

Instructions

Split and scrape vanilla beans and place in a large bowl or jar with the sugar.

Work seeds into the sugar with your fingers. Bury the pods under the sugar.

Cover tightly and let stand overnight (or up to months–vanilla sugar keeps forever) at room temperature.

In a food processor fitted with metal blade, process semisweet chocolate and dark chocolate until finely ground, using 4-second pulses. Process in batches, if necessary (I started out with large bars so I first processed the chocolate using the grater attachment and then switched to the blade.)

Remove pod from sugar. Add ground chocolate and cocoa powder to sugar and whisk to blend, making sure to combine well.

Store mix airtight at room temperature for up to six months.

To serve, heat 2 Tbsp of mix with 0.23 lt of milk over medium heat.

Notes

Yields: ~76 2-Tbsp servings

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Mix-www.seededatthetable.com

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Mix-www.seededatthetable.com

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Mix

http://www.seededatthetable.com

Yield: 32 servings

The slightly burnt caramel magically transforms this hot mix into a sweet and salty chocolaty drink.

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar

3 tablespoons pure vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups good quality Dutch cocoa powder

1 to 3 tablespoons good sea salt (My preference is 1-tbsp)

1 cup dry milk powder

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

10 ounces good quality bittersweet chocolate or chocolate chips

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Heat the 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar in a large heavy pan, over medium heat, without stirring. When the sugar begins to melt, take the handle of the pan and swirl it to melt without burning. The sugar might seem to crystallize, but it will eventually melt to a deep amber color. (Can take 15-20 minutes, so be patient.)

Remove the pan from the heat and carefully add the vanilla. Whisk the caramel until smooth again, then immediately pour it onto the lined baking sheet. Allow it to spread without touching it. Set aside and let the caramel harden, at least 1 hour.

When ready to make the mix, use the back of a large spoon to tap the caramel several times into small broken pieces that can fit into the feeding tube of a large food processor. Turn the processor on, and while running, feed the caramel pieces into the tube so the processor pulverizes the caramel into a fine powder. Continue to add the pieces, a few at a time, until it is completely powder (a cloud of caramel dust will float out of the tube). Turn the processor off and follow the next steps to complete the mix.

Add the rest of the ingredients, except the chocolate, into the food processor with the caramel powder. Replace the lid and process until smooth. Add the chocolate to the bowl and process again until the mixture is a fine powder.

Store in an airtight container, in a cool, dry place for up to one month. To serve, stir 3 tablespoons mix into 1 cup hot milk.
