Default Recipie Swaps

The ancient rules of hospitality say if you eat with someone they are your friend. The internet can't send food (yet??) so a recipie is the next best thing.
Over on whats for dinner thread we've had some delicious and totally evil recipies.
I thought I would start a new thread based on that, so here's one of my own fav recipies to kick it off.
It often gets requested as a birthday cake. Just note its in metric so a little conversion may be required.

Enjoy

Cheers,
Lara

Macadamia Mud Cake

Ingredients:
Cake:
180g dark cooking chocolate
150g unsalted butter
125g castor sugar
60g unsalted macadamias, chopped roughly
4 large eggs, separated
85g plain flour

Icing:
150g dark cooking chocolate
135g pure cream (at least 40% butterfat, no gelatine)
25g salted butter, cubed

A large heat proof mixing bowl that fits over a wide pan of boiling water works well
23cm round cake tin, preferably a springform pan
Additional butter to grease
Paper to line it
Cake rack

preheat oven to 190 degC

Method:
For the cake:
1. Break up the chocolate and melt.
2. Add the butter and stir well until all melted together and smooth. Retun mixing bowl to microwave or over the boiling water if required
3. Remove from the heat and stirr in the egg yolks one by one
4. Ad the sugar and the nuts
5. Beat the egg whites to a firm snow.
6. Fold in half the flour then half the egg whites, and repeat taking care not to deflate the mixture more than necessary.
7. Pour the mixture into the greased and lined cake tin, smoothing the top of the mixture off.
8. Bake for 35 mins. Centre will be moist but not sticky.
9. Turn out to cool on a cake rack. Do not ice until cool or icing will run off.

Prepare the icing:
1. Break up chocolate and melt
2. Remove from heat, add cream and stir until blended. NOTE: do not overheat or the cream will separate and become oily.
3. Stir in the butter, ensure the mixture is well blended and glossy
4. Let cool, until thick enough to be applied to the cold cake with a spatula. There is enough icing to coat the cake thickly on the top and the sides

Keeping the cake.
In a airtight container in a cool place. In warm weather it is necessary to keep the cake in the fridge to stop the icing becoming too soft, but it will make it dull.
It will keep for up to 5 days (if it lasts that long)

Variations:
Can be made in a rectangular tin, cut into single serves and individually iced.

Castor suger:

Castor or caster sugar is the name of a very fine sugar in Britain, so named because the grains are small enough to fit though a sugar "caster" or sprinkler. It is sold as "superfine" sugar in the United States. Because of its fineness, it dissolves more quickly than regular white sugar, and so is especially useful in meringues and cold liquids. It is not as fine as confectioner’s sugar, which has been crushed mechanically (and generally mixed with a little starch to keep it from clumping).

If you don’t have any castor sugar on hand, you can make your own by grinding granulated sugar for a couple of minutes in a food processor

Taranis -

Actually, yes, you can bake spaghetti. The Italians do it quite often in a dish that's called a "Frittata" I've got a great recipe:

Frittata di Spaghetti

1 teaspoon olive oil
4 ounces prosciutto -- diced
6 large eggs
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh parsley -- chopped
2 cups cooked spaghetti
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese -- cubed
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup butter

In a frying pan saute the prosciutto in the 1 teaspoon of olive oil until crispy. Drain on brown paper. In a large bowl beat the eggs. Add the Parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper. Add the spaghetti, mix well, then stir in the mozzarella and prosciutto. In a 10 inch frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the butter and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the spaghetti mixture and smooth the top with a spatula. Cook over medium low heat until the frittata is browned on the bottom and set. Place a plate larger than the frying pan over the pan and invert the frittata onto the plate. Heat the remaining olive oil and butter in the pan and return the frittata to the pan to brown the other side. Shake the pan occasionally to keep the frittata from sticking. Place a serving plate over the frittata and carefully invert pan to remove frittata. Serve at room temperature, cut in wedges.


The greatest thing about a frittata is that you can make it for breakfast, brunch, or even dinner. There's hundreds of variations for a frittata as well. As the Italians say: Delicioso!

Lara - I like this idea for sharing recipes....it's like the internet version of "breaking bread" with one another. Cooking is one of my great passions!

I've got a great recipe for some flawless (and effortless) Salmon Steaks...let me know if anyone's interested....

Best,
Bryan

Woohoo I've started a successful thread!!
I love finding out what other real people eat and trying it for myself. The stuff in cookbooks is often so 'dinner party' and not 'dinner tonight'

Thanks Taranis for explaining the castor sugar to Flamingo Girl, I forgot it would be a foreign term to our eastern Pacific/Western Atlantic chums. I remember being stumped for months on what a 'stick' of butter was!!

I'm intrigued by Breea's Baked Spagettii, bring it on, girl

And Frittata for breakfast is one of lifes civilising pleasures for Sunday brunch. We often make it with rashers of bacon laid in the bottom of the pan so you get the bacon taste and a fancy presentation, too.
We have a great product here called pizza cheese which is shredded mozzerella with sharp cheddar mixed in. Its great for omelet and the like (ie for topping big baked jacket potatoes, or for cheese on toast) cause you can chuck it in by the handful and get that balance of stringy and sharp with no effort.

Yum Yum!

Cheers,
Lara

Thumbs up What a great idea!!

Oh, Lara, this is a GREAT idea!!

I'll throw this one down for starters:

*****************

Hawaiian coffee cake
Cake
2 large eggs
2/3 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
¼ cup butter
2 unbleached white flour
½ teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup crushed pineapple, well drained
1 cup flaked coconut

Topping
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup crushed pineapple, well drained

In a mixing bowl beat together eggs, pineapple juice and butter. Add flour, baking soda and baking powder; beat well. Stir in 1 cup crushed pineapple and flaked coconut. Spoon into an oiled and floured 9” round pan. Spread batter evenly.
Toss topping ingredients together and sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool on wire rack. Serves 6.

**************

As a coffee cake, this one really doesn't work so well because it tends to be pretty moist. But it tastes great!!

From “Sweet and Sugar Free: An All-Natural, Fruit Sweetened Dessert Cookbook” by Karen E. Barkie, St. Martin’s Press, 1982, a book I highly recommend....

I'll put some more up later...

Stay hungry,

G A

Lara -

Just guessing, but from a bloke that knows his way round a kitchen, I would say that the measurement is 2 cups....

We'll wait for proper confirmation of course!

Hi Breea,
A fellow food lover is always welcome at my table!!

I agree conversion on Aus (metric) to US can be a pain. It gets worse if you consider the British have a slightly different system as well., so all my mothers old recipies needed rejigging.

My husband and I work a lot of US recipies, so we fixed it by weighing out water on the scales and marking the level in a steel jug by scratching it with a sharp nail. This works because water weighs the same as its volume in metric: so 236ml of water weighs 236 gram, and thats a US cup measure!! I leave converting lbs & oz to gm & Kg to the electronic scales.

We do have one unit of measure in common: An american teaspoon is the same as an aus one, ie 5mls
but american tablespoon is 15ml (3tsp) whereas an aus one is 20ml (4 tsp)
An Aus cup is 250 ml, and an US cup is 8floz which is 236ml

So a spoonful of sugar over here is a sweeter mouthful, and your cup runneth over if I lend you a cup of sugar

I'll have to look for a good conversion site, and post the url

Cheers,
Lara

Default Back, finally

Finally a chance to get back into this thread!

Lara,

Gemini is correct; the measure should be 2 cups for the hawaiian coffee cake.

Give it a try and let me know what you think...

Since the warm weather is approaching us in the northern lattitudes, here are a couple of cool recipes:

Pistachio Jello

2 boxes sugar free Pistachio pudding
2 – 15oz. Cans crushed pineapple, in juice (not syrup)
2 Cups small marshmallows
1 – 16oz or 2 – 8oz cartons of cool whip

Mix pistachio pudding mix with pineapples, juice and all. Mix in marshmallows. Mix in Cool Whip. Refrigerate.


A pretty unique taste, in my opinion. Got the recipe from my cousin.

Shelley’s Peanut Butter Pie

Graham cracker crust
1/3 cup Peanut Butter
3 oz. Cream Cheese – softened
1 cup powdered sugar
½ cup milk
8 oz. Cool Whip – thaw a little

Mix all except cool whip with mixer
Fold in Cool Whip – put mixture into crust
Put in Freezer…Yum!
This one is from one of my coworkers. The "...Yum!" is from her original recipe.

And since it's fall in the southern lattitudes, here's a couple for Lara!

Apple Raisin Coffee cake

Cake:
3 Large eggs
2/3 cup unsweetened apple juice
¼ cup butter, softened
2 cups unbleached white flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¾ raisins
2 cups raisins

Topping
1 cup apple, peeled cored and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Cinnamon

In a mixing bowl combine eggs, apple juice, and butter, and beat well. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spices. Mix thoroughly and stir in raisins and apples. Sppon into an oiled and floured round 9” x 1 ½ “ baking pan and spread batter evenly in pan. (Batter will fill the pan upon baking, so use less batter if substituting a shallower or smaller pan.)
Toss topping ingredients together in a small bowl. Arrange apple slices over batter in an attractive pattern. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until browned and a knife inserted comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serves 6.


This one makes a much better coffee cake than the Hawaiian, Lara. Dry as a bone when I make it...


and finally, one of my favorite dishes when the weather cools off, Pastina Soup.

Pastina Soup

1 lb Pastina nooldles (orzo or pepe de acomo will also work)

1 Roast (2-4 lbs)

¼ onion, sliced

1 can of Tomato Puree (29 oz)

1 handful (¼ - ½ cup) Celery leaves, torn into small pieces (halves or quarters)

2 large pots

In first pot, add water until roast is completely covered, add onion and celery leaves, bring to boil, simmer for 2 hours, covered. Remove roast from water, cut and break up into small bite-sized pieces, removing fat if desired.

In second pot, bring pastina noodles to boil, boil 5 minutes, drain.

Return meat to original water, add can of tomato puree,+ 1 can full of water, and cooked pastina noodles. Simmer for ½ an hour, stirring occasionally.

Serve hot, salt and pepper to taste.


Stay hungry,

G A
