Fruit Pie

Hello,

I haven’t uploaded a blogpost in a while. One of the reason is that I have found a job in a restaurant. I work there around 3 times a week. I don’t cook on the nights that I have to work. Another reason is that it has been very warm where I live. I have BBQ’ed a lot the last couple of weeks. In the time that I didn’t upload I found out that I passed all my exams. I even made no mistakes on one of the exams.

My family came to my house on a Sunday to celebrate that I graduated. We needed a lot of pie so I made a fruit pie (with strawberry, blue berry and raspberry).

I now have a lot of time. It isn’t as warm anymore. I have made a few recipes in the time that I was “away”. This is my recipe for fruit pie.

The ingredients:
4 eggs
150 gram sugar
8 gram vanilla sugar
120 gram melted butter
140 gram flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
strawberries, blue berries and raspberries

Spring form tin (24 cm)

 

Preheat the oven until 180 degrees. Split the egg. Put the yolk and egg-white in separate bowls. Beat the egg whites until it is almost stiff. Add the sugar and vanilla sugar while stirring.

Add the yolks (one by one) and the melted butter to the mixture.

Add the flower and the baking powder in a separate bowl and mix it together. Add this mixture to the other mixture with a wooden spoon.

The mixture is finished now. Pour the mixture into the spring form tin.

Wash the fruits. Pat dry the fruits. Add half a tablespoon of flour to the fruit. This prevents the fruit from sinking to the bottom.

Put the fruit on top of the mixture (that you poured into the spring form tin).

Put the spring form tin in the oven for around 50 minutes. In the end it will look like this:

Breakfast pancakes

Hello,

Yesterday I felt like having pancakes for breakfast. Normally I just eat a slice of bread with cheese or something.

The ingredients:

1 1/2 cup milk
1 egg
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
25g butter

Whisk the milk, egg and villa extract together. Stir the flour and sugar together in another bowl. Add the two mixtures together.DSC00656

Heat up a pan. Add the butter and let it melt.

Cook the pancakes on one sides for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip it around. Cook the pancakes on the other sides for another minute.

You can serve the pancakes with fruit or chocolate sauce.
