Strawberry shortcake

A simple strawberry shortcake that you can make. If you already know how to make a sponge cake, it will be an easy task. This cake requires a sponge cake. I use a round 10 inch, aluminum baking pan that you can remove the bottom part. I cut up some parchment paper for the round bottom part and around the aluminum baking pan. I have the recipe on how to make a sponge cake and make the layer cake decorations.
The sponge cake needs to be removed from the baking pan and parchment paper. Then turn it upside to completely cool down on a wire rack. Since I will be making a layer cake, I decided to cut the cake in half to cool the cake faster.
The whipping cream has to put 2 tbsp of sugar. Without the sugar, the whipping cream will not taste good. The whipping cream needs to be whipped until stiff glossy peaks. When you turn the bowl over the cream will not move and it stands alone.
This strawberry shortcake has 3 layers. I used fresh strawberry. Washed and dry with a paper towel. I cut the strawberries into pieces. The first layer was spread with whipped cream nicely all around the cake. I put the strawberries around the cake on each cake layers.
I spread some whipping cream nicely on the cake and put some strawberries around the cake separating apart and make a nice design with the strawberries in the middle of the cake.
This cake is so delicious. I like it a lot. When you look at the cake, it seems difficult. Once you do it, it will be simple. Some layer cakes are hard to do, but this is an easy, simple sponge cake, with 3 layer cakes, a layer cake with some whipped cream and strawberries. If you decorated with blueberries. It will be a blueberry shortcake.
The strawberry shortcake came out perfectly and beautifully. One that is cut up to show you how the inside looks like. Another is a piece of cake on the plate to show you the layers inside the cake with the strawberries on the cake.
Kids and adults would love this kid a lot. If you do not like to have a lot of creams, you can put less cream as you desire. This can be a perfect birthday cake that you can make for someone or for a snack. If you have never made a layer cake before, give this strawberry shortcake a try.

Raisin buns

These are raisin buns. They’re simple to make. Making your homemade bun is very fun and healthy. When making buns, I decided to put some raisins inside.
I used a bread machine to knead the dough. It is faster to knead than using hand knead. kneading the dough has to be transparent when you stretch the dough wide, and you see transparent, and it does not break that is when you know the dough is ready.
To be healthy, I use olive oil instead of butter. I find that eating butter is not good for the health. To be healthy, I prefer using olive oil.
Take a scale and measure the whole dough balls. Divide the measurement on how many buns you will be making. Most of the time you can make 8-9 pieces of buns. I decided to make 8 raisin buns.
Take a dough. Put in 4-5 pieces of raisin inside the dough, and then press the dough inside using your two thumbs to take the air bubble out. Then close the open tight. Roll the dough ball round on the work surface gently. Then use your two side hands to make it rounder. When it is done, place it onto a baking tray. The dough ball needs to be proof a second time until double size. While the oven is pre-heating. Egg wash the buns.
While the raisin buns are baking you can see them turning golden brown. It will smell so good. These buns are very tasty and good. You can have these raisin buns for breakfast, snacks or at work. If you like you can freeze them and eat them whenever you want. Once you make these buns kids and adults would like them very much. Try the recipe and enjoy!!

4. Take some flour and dust some on the work surface, so the dough will not stick. Take the dough out of the bowl and place it on your work surface and knead like you are washing clothes by hands for a few minutes and you will not feel any sticky dough anymore.  Continue to knead, while kneading  take off a piece of dough and stretch it wide and see if you see a transparent see through and the dough does not come off that meant it is ready. If you stretch the dough and you don’t see transparent and the dough pieces brakes while stretching, continue to knead for a couple of minutes, until it is transparent see through and the dough piece does not brake.


5. While the dough is in the bowl, press it flat and make sure it is cover the whole bowl. Use a hot cloth and cover the dough, so that it can raise faster. By covering the dough you prevent it from getting dry. Let the dough sit and rise for 1 -1 and a half hours or until double the size.  (note: If you do not cover the dough it will become dry and will be no good anymore)

Kneading dough from a bread machine:
1. Using a bread machine take a bread pan, add in the wet ingredients, then dry
ingrients. Make a well and add in the yeast. Snap the bread pan back in the machine. Set the machine to dough setting and press start and the machine will do all the kneading for you.

2.  Take itthe dough out and see if it’s transparent and does not break apart when you stretch the dough wide. If it break then you need to knead it a bit more. Dust some flour on the work surface so the dough will not stick. Knead 3-5 mintues. Check to see if the dough transparents and does not break. That when you know it is ready.

3. While the dough is in the bowl, press it flat and make sure it is cover the whole bowl. Use a hot cloth and cover the dough, so that it can raise faster. By covering the dough you prevent it from getting dry. Let the dough sit and rise for 1 -1 and a half hours or until double the size.  (note: If you do not cover the dough it will become dry and will be no good anymore

Meaurement of the dough pieces:
1. Take a scale and measure each pieces 75-76 grams. If there are less or more pieces, you can take out some pieces and add it on the missing amount. (note: make sure when you scale the pieces should be 70-72 grams)

2. Use a plastic wrapper and cover the un use dough pieces, so that it will not get dry.

3. Take a dough. Put in 4-5 pieces of raisin inside the dough and then press the dough inside using your two thumb to take the air bubble out. Then close the open tight. If you can not close it, you can damp a bit of warm water on it. Roll it round on the work surface gently. Then use your 2 side hands to make it rounder.

4.  Repeat the same step for all the dough balls.

Second rise:
1. When all done. Take a baking pan and place a parchment paper.  Put all the raisin bread on the baking tray and place it in the oven. Let it sit and raise for 30 min or until double in sizes.

2. When 30 min is done. Take it out of the oven and set it aside.

Turnip cake

This is a turnip cake. Very delicious and simple to make. This turnip cake is made from a white radish. White radish can also be called daikon. For the filling, I used Chinese dried scallops and Chinese mushrooms. You can find the Chinese dried scallops and Chinese mushrooms at a Chinese supermarket.
To make the turnip cake, first, take a large white radish. Use a knife peeler and peel the skin. Cut the two end parts. Then rinse the white radish. Take a slice cutter put the cutter knife attachment onto the slice cutter. Slice the white radish into big and small slices directly into a mixing bowl. When done, set it aside.
In the cupboard, take a package of Chinese dry mushrooms. Put a couple of mushrooms into a bowl. Soak the mushroom in water. Place it into the microwave. Press power and set it to 1or 2. Then heat it for 10 minutes. (Note: Different microwave heating times can be different.)
At the 2 minutes, stop the microwave. Take the mushroom out. Cut off the stems. Place the mushroom back into the bowl and put a bit of water to soak in water. Place it back into the microwave and heat until the end. When done, set it aside and let it cool down.
For the Chinese dried scallops, I put a couple of pieces into a bowl and soak them in water and heat it for 10 minutes. When done, use a fork and press on the dried scallops to smash them into pieces. Then set it aside.
When the mushrooms cool down. Take as many mushrooms that you will use and cut them into slices and dice them. Easy to mix in the mixture.
It is the faster procedure way to make it in the microwave. Save the time to cook stir-fried in the pan. If you do not like the fillings, you can put whatever as your desire.
In the cupboard, take out a large pan. Turn the heat to high. Pour in the bowl of sliced white radish and the fillings. Let it cook for a bit. The white radish needs to be cooked until they are tender.
If you feel the turnip and the fillings do not have enough water pour a bit. You can also use a bit of Chinese mushroom water. Take a package of rice flour. Pour it into a cup swifter. Turn to medium heat. Swift the rice flour into the white radish and the filling and mix it.
(Note: Continue adding the rice flour until it becomes a smash together.)
I added some garlic powder and onion salt but not too much. When it is ready, turn off the heat.
Now it is time to steam. Take two aluminum foil rectangles. It depends on how big you want to steam it in a pan. Put some oil, use a tissue and wipe it around the pans. Scoop up the turnip cake into an aluminum foil. In the cupboard, take out a steamer pot with the steamer tray. Fill up some water and wait until the water starts to boil. Take the turnip cakes and place them in the steamer.
close the lid. steam for 40-45 minutes
(note: The size of how much you put in the rectangle aluminum foil depends on the steaming cooking time. Small size takes around 40 minutes, and big size takes around 45-50 minutes.) When it is ready, take it out and let it cool down on a wire rack.
Kids and adults would love this turnip cake. You can have this for lunch or snack. This is a very good cake to make. If you want a savoury cake, this would be a good choice to make. You can also use a round aluminum foil to make it a birthday cake. I like this turnip cake a lot. It is delicious.

Fruit sponge cake

A simple fruit sponge cake you can make. If you already know how to make a sponge cake, it will be an easy task. I use a 10-inch aluminum baking pan where you can remove the bottom part. I cut up some parchment paper for the round bottom part and around the aluminum baking pan. It would be easier to take the sponge cake out. I have the recipe on how to make the sponge cake and decorate it.
The sponge cake needs to be removed from the baking pan and the parchment paper. Turn the sponge cake upside down to let it completely cool down on a wire rack. When the cake is cooled down, turn the sponge cake over. I decided to cut the cake in half because I will be making a layer of sponge fruit cake.
The whipping cream has to put 2 tbsp of icing sugar or sugar. Without the sugar or the icing sugar, the whipping cream will not taste good. The whipping cream needs to be whipped until stiff glossy peaks. When you turn the bowl over the cream will not move and it stands alone.
This fruit sponge cake has 2 layers. I used fresh strawberry, plums, cantaloupe and tangerines orange. For the strawberries, I Washed and dry with a paper towel. I cut the strawberries into pieces. The first layer was spread with whipped cream nicely all around the cake. I put the strawberries and plums that are cut into pieces and sprinkle some in the middle. Then I spread some whipping cream on the top of the fruit cake. Then connect the other half on top of the cake nicely. Spread whipping cream everywhere. Put some strawberries around the cake separating, them apart and make a nice design with the strawberries in the middle of the cake. Flatten two pieces of tangerines together and place a couple of pieces on the outer edge separating them apart from each other. Cut the cantaloupe in half. Scoop the cantaloupe into ball shapes and place it around the cake. If you are giving it to someone’s birthday, you can put a happy birthday sign.
Kids and adults will love this fruit sponge cake a lot. If you do not like to have a lot of creams, you can put less cream as your desire. This is a birthday cake that you can make for someone or a snack. If you have never made a layer cake before, give this fruit sponge cake a try.

2lb loaf of white bread (using a bread machine)

This is a whole white bread made from a bread machine. Simple and does not require any hand knead and oven baking. The bread machine will do all the job for you if you want to make whole bread in the machine.
Using a bread machine, you need to set the setting at the basic bread. Take the bread pan out. First, put all the wet ingredients. Then the dry ingredients. Then make a well and put in the yeast. Make sure that the yeast does not touch the salt, sugar, and liquid or else the yeast will be no good.
It will do a kneading process first. Then it will rise until double in size. Then it will bake. I turn the machine off when there are 10 minutes left. I do not like the crust too hard. It will have a hard time eating. When done, take it out and let it cool on a wire rack. When the bread cools down, cut the loaf of bread into slice pieces.
Kids and adults will love this loaf of bread. You can have fun creating your sandwich. You can also heat it in the oven and make toast with some jam or butter spread on the bread. You can have the bread for lunch or dinner. If you like, you can put some vegetables on the side plate. It will look nicer. If you have a bread machine this would be a simple bread that you can make at home. Try the recipe and enjoy.

Ingredients:
1 & 3/8 cups water
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups bread flour or all purpose flour
2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons dry milk
1 & 3/4 teaspoons salt
2 & 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast or instant yeast

Direction:
1. Take the bread pan out of the machine to add the ingredients.

2. Carefully measure 1 and 3/8 cups water. Remember, use water that is room tempature. Do not use very hot or very cold water. It’s good idea to view the measuring cup at eye level to make sure you have measured ezactly 1 and 3/8 cups.

3. Pour the water into the bread pan.

4. Carefully measure 2 teaspoons of butter or margarine that is at room tempature. Put the butter into a bowl and microwave it for 20-30 second until the butter is soften and at room tempature. Then add it into the bread pan this takes care of all of the liquid ingredients for the recipe. Next comes the dry ingredients.

5. Measure 4 cips of bread flour or all purpose flour. Make sure not to overpack the flour into the cuo. To avoid over packing a good trick is to fill the measuring cup to over flowing, then tap the side of the cup with the knife or spatula to remove air pockets the flour into the bread pan. Level off the measuring cup with the knife or spatula. Pour the flour into the bread pan.

6. Measure 2 tablespoon of sugar. Again, make sure to level off the tablespoons for an exact masurement. Add the sugar into the bread pan.

7. Meaure 2 tablespoons of dry milk. Level off the tablespoons of dry milk like all of the rest of the dry ingredients. Add the dry milk to the bread pan.

8. Measure 1 &3/4 teaspoons of salt. It is especially important to measure the salt precisely because too much salt, even a little can affect the rising of the dough. Add the salt to the bread pan.

9. Before adding the yeast, use your finger to form a well in the flour. The pour in the yeast. Never make yeast have contact with the liquid when adding the ingredients. Measure (again, level off) 2 & 1/4 teaspoons of yeast and carefully pour it into the well you made in the flour.

10. Carefully place the bread pan into the breadmachine.

11. Close the lid. Plug in the bread machine. The following machine will beep once it is plug in. the time will display 3.25 hours.
(Note: It all depends on what kind of bread machine. All bread machine have different function.)

12. With this sunbeam machine you can press the crust of the colour that you like to have. You can select light, medium or dark.

13. Press start to start the bread machine to start to making bread. It takes about 4 hours.

14. While the dough is kneading and you see it is dry, you can put a bit by bit cold water until you feel the dough is not dry any more.

15. Let the bread machine do all the work by kneading, rising and baking the bread.

16. You can also use the delay timer. Press the delay timer and set it how many hours to start and finish, so you can have bread in the morining or after work.

Dinner rolls

It is my second time making dinner rolls. It is very simple, and delicious to make. I decided to use a bread machine to knead the dough because it is easier and does not require any hand strength. If you like you can also use hand kneading or a stand mixer.
Using a bread machine, you need to set the setting at dough. Take the bread pan out. Put all the liquid then the dry ingredients. Nake a well and put in the yeast. Make sure it does not touch the salt or sugar. Snap the bread pan back into the machine.
Let the machine mix the dough by itself. It takes about 30 minutes to knead the dough. Make make sure the dough stretches wide and you see transparent. If it breaks, you will need to knead it a little bit more. When the dough is kneaded perfectly, take the dough out of the pan and place it onto a mixing bowl. let it rise for 1 1/2- 2 hours until double the size. Do not let the dough rise in the bread machine because it is hot inside and can make the dough have a hard part piece at the bottom. It is best to take it out and let it rise.
Once it is double the size, take the bread dough out of the bread pan onto a working surface. Remember to dust a bit of flour, so the dough will not stick. Divide the dough in half. Take out a measurement scale and measure each dough to 68 grams. Use a plastic wrapper and cover the unused dough pieces, so that they will not get dry. Take a dough and press the dough inside using your two thumbs to take the air bubble out. Then close the open tight. If you can not close, you can damp a bit of warm water on it. Roll it round on the work surface gently. Then use your two side hands to make it rounder.
Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper. Pre-heat the oven to a bit warm. Too hot will kill the dinner rolls while rising the second time in the oven, While waiting for the oven to get warm, place all the dinner rolls onto a baking tray. When it is ready. Place it inside the oven and let it rise for 30 minutes or until they are double in size.
When ready, take it out and preheat the oven at 375f until the oven is hot. While waiting egg wash the dinner rolls. When the oven is hot, place the dinner rolls into the oven and bake them for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. Different oven baking time can be different. You will need to test your oven to see how long it will need to bake the dinner rolls. When they are golden brown, Use a kitchen mitten and take out the dinner rolls and place it onto a wire rack to let them cool down.
Kids and adults would love these delicious dinner rolls. You can have these dinner rolls for breakfast, dinner or as a snack. You can also use the dinner rolls to make a hamburger with some meat and vegetable. It will taste very good. If you like, you can freeze and eat them whenever you want. Try the recipe and enjoy.
