Pumpkin Nutella Swiss Roll

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

This Swiss roll consists of a tray of pumpkin chiffon, which is rolled up and spread with Nutella. You can't really go wrong with Nutella.

Nutella is like peanut butter, except better. It is a chocolate-hazelnut spread great for bread, fruit, crackers, and or Anything!
It was first created in 1940 by the Ferrero company, now famous for their Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
The hazelnuts were used originally as a filler because during Nutella’s first production, cocoa was difficult to come by. Nutella was first manufactured in loaves, which then could be sliced and spread on bread to make sandwiches. The spread was first called “Supecrema gianduja,” but then it was named Nutella in 1964.
  1. Line a 30x40-cm baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Sift flour, ground almond and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, whip together the caramelized sugar syrup, milk, and safflower oil until the mixture is emulsified Add in pumpkin puree and flour mixture, and mix until just combined. Add in egg yolks and fold until smooth.
  2. Beat egg whites with salt and lemon juice over low speed until frothy and foamy. Gradually add in sugar, increase speed and beat until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold 1/3 of egg white mixture into flour mixture to lighten it and then carefully fold in remaining whites.
  3. Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking tray and spread the surface even. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove, cool briefly, and invert the cake onto a new parchment paper. Carefully peel off the baking paper and trim the edges of cake. Spread the surface with nutella and roll it up. Chill for about 1 hour and slice.

Pumpkin Sesame Fritters with Maple Syrup

Saturday, September 26, 2009

This is a super easy yet yummy recipe for making pumpkin sesame fritters as an afternoon snack along with a pot of hot Oolong tea or a glass of sparkling wine.
Pumpkins are believed to have originated in North America. Seeds from related plants have been found in Mexico dating back to 7000 to 5500 B.C.
References to pumpkins date back many centuries. The name pumpkin originated from the Greek word for "large melon" which is "pepon." "Pepon" was changed by the French into "pompon." The English changed "pompon" to "Pumpion." American colonists changed "pumpion" into "pumpkin."

  1. Mix pumpkin puree with flour and maple syrup to make a soft ball.
  2. Divide it into 10 portions, and shape each of them into a ball. Using the palm of your hand, press each piece into a flat pancake and coat with sesames.
  3. Deep fry in hot oil over the medium heat until toasty brown. Serve hot.

Baked Stuffed Zucchini

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Recipe Source: Hackfleisch Leckere Rezepte für die ganye Familie / Weltbild

This baked stuffed zucchini recipe is absolutely mouthwatering! Fresh zucchini, ground meat, onion, and bread crumbs are mixed to make a meatloaf mixture, then baked with Emmental cheese until melted and lightly golden. A delicious way to make a satisfying yet healthy cheesy meal.

Emmental cheese is the original Swiss cheese, a creamy colored cow's milk cheese with characteristic large holes. The cheese originated in the Emme Valley of Switzerland, in the region of Bern, although it has been duplicated by many nations. The large holes and creamy, nutty flavor have made Emmental a perennial favorite around the world, and the cheese is well suited to a range of cooking projects. Most grocers carry Emmental cheese or regional duplications of the cheese.

Under European law, cheese labeled as “Emmentaler Swiss” has an Appellation of Controlled Origin, which means that only cheese made in the Emme Valley in a certain way can carry this label. Emmental cheese, however, is not so protected, which can lead to confusion for consumers, since technically Emmental cheese can come from anywhere. For people who want to seek out the distinct flavor of true traditional Emmental, Emmentaler Swiss should be obtained.

As is the case with many famous cheeses, Emmental is a raw milk cheese when it is made in the traditional fashion. The milk from the cheese is supposed to come from pasture fed cows, and it usually has a high butterfat content and a fruity, slightly herbal aroma as a result of the forage fodder that the cows eat. The milk is heated, inoculated with bacteria, allowed to curdle, and then pressed into extremely large cheese molds to make wheels of cheese which can exceed 200 pounds (91 kilograms).

As the cheese cures, the bacteria inside generate a great deal of carbon dioxide. The thick rind on the outside traps the gas inside, causing it to form distinctive large holes. Typically, the cheese is aged for at least four months, and often much longer. Since the cheese is aged, it is legal for sale in the United States despite being a raw milk cheese, since the Food and Drug Administration has established that cheeses aged at least 60 days pose a low risk of food borne illness. Most Emmental cheese ages for around a year before it goes to market. If the cheese is to be labeled Emmentaler Swiss, it is usually inspected to make sure that it meets the standards of the appellation.

The cheese melts extraordinarily well, making it a popular choice for grilled sandwiches and baked dishes which include cheese. It can also be sliced and eaten plain, and is a popular inclusion on cheese plates. A high quality Emmental cheese can greatly enhance any dish it is included in, from quiche to a cheeseburger, and for this reason, the cheese has an enduring popularity. Wisegeek

Chilled Ping Pei Mooncakes / 花色冰皮月饼

Monday, September 14, 2009

Those are the non-baked modern mooncakes. They resemble the traditional one with modifications. Traditional mooncakes are made with oil (usually lard), and plenty of sugar. "Ping Pei" means "chilled crust", which is comparatively easier to make than the baked ones.

  1. Stir together rice flours, wheat starch, sugar, sweetened and unsweetened condensed milk in a bowl. Steam the mixture for 30 minutes on high heat. Remove and cool briefly aside. Rub in the shortening and mix until the dough is smooth and soft.
  2. Divide the dough into two portions and divide one of them again into half. Mix cacao powder with one and matcha with the other until combined. Divide each flavour of dough into 28 portions. Prepare the filling too into 28 portions. Microwave two tablespoons of glutinous rice powder with strong heat for about 1 minute until cooked.
  3. Dust the mooncake mould and tap to remove excess rice flour. Take one portion from each 3 colours of dough and combine them into a round. Flatten out the dough and center the filling. Seal and shape into a ball. Lightly coat the surface with prepared cooked glutinous rice flour. Press each into mooncake mould and then push lightly out on a serving plate. Cover tightly with plastic film and chill for 1-2 hours.
