Brissy Baking day!

What more could you want than baking with friends? =)

Decided to have a Baking day!! except.. we failed a lot xP
First on the menu:
1) KONYAKKU JELLY (yes i know its not baking.. but still cooking). Just follow the instructions on the packet.
Me and Katie with our heart jelly :)


*Tip: make sure the water has come up to the boil before you put the powdered acid in xP

  • 1 cup plain flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Milk, enough for a smooth batter
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Add a lil oil/butter in a pan and make the crepe!~~ Serving suggestion: ICECREAM! =D


aka. failed choc chip biscuits

This became....

 *Tip: add more flour or else the biscuits will join together to form a slice XP

HOWEVER u can save it by curling the joined biscuits around a rolling pin to form a tuille ^^

(i'm not TOO sure about the ingredients coz i didn't make it.. =p)
  • 1 cup of spinach, chopped
  • 2 rashes of bacon
  • 1 medium brown onion, diced
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • Filo pastry
Fry onion, spinach and bacon in pan till spinach wilted and onion and bacon browned. (if spinach is frozen kinda.. try and squeeze out all the water). Take pan off heat and fold in ricotta cheese. Lay sheets of filo pastry on board, spread melted butter on each sheet and layer another sheet on top. Cut pastry in half lengthways, place filling in and fold like a triangle. Brush with egg wash and bake at 180oC for 10-15min or till golden brown.

5) BAKLAVA (Terie's recipe)
  • Filo pastry
  • Mixed nuts (e.g. walnuts), crushed
  • Sugar
Spread melted butter on each layer of filo pastry, top with crushed nuts and sugar and layer more filo pastry (HAHHA terie tell me if i'm saying this wrongly xD). Bake at 180oC till golden brown!!

I will write a separate blog on this =P hehe.. but lets just say it was a success :D

Special thanks to the Chai's for letting us invade their kitchen and ingredients. And to all those who were there =) =) DK, Tez (Daniel XD HAHHAHHA), Kelvin, Katie, Law and Em!!
Had an awesome baking day even tho we FAIL =P
