Recipes

Ok, so I don't think if you go to my profile on Allrecipes.com.au you get to see what I'm up to, so here's the recipes I uploaded there:
ANZAC Slice
Salmon Mousse
Quick Cinnamon Fudge
Chocolate Fudge
yeah, so, I like fiddling with fudge recipes :)
and
Banana Bread:


clicking on the image above will bring you to the recipe.

Anyway, if you try any of them (and some people who have tried them did like them) do post a review, and some stars (well, 5 is nice, but be honest, even if you like me!)...
And of course the other two I mention in my previous post...

And now, here's the recipe for this quick I-don't-feel-like-cooking-but-my-family-has-to-eat recipe:
DUTCH BABY

For each egg:
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
1 Tbsp sugar (US or Australian Tbsp, doesn't really matter - I use raw sugar, I've used Xylitol in smaller quantity, I've used white sugar, and brown sugar... and you may like to put more, or less)
you can add some vanilla too if you like, maybe 1/4 tsp for each egg.

I normally make this with 8 eggs for the 4 of us, and it's our dinner.

What you do: well, as you may know, from a previous post, I use my blender for this one :) Chuck the eggs, sugar and milk in the blender, blend a bit (WITH THE LID ON!) and then add the flour, blend, and then stop the blender, remove the lid, scrape the sides PUT LID BACK ON, and blend a wee bit more. If there's a few lumps it doesn't really matter. You can do this by hand with a whisk, or with egg beaters, whatever, doesn't really matter.

I use a 8x13 inch glass (Pyrex) pan (er, that's 20 x 30 cm I think), I put about 1 Tbsp butter in it, and make it melt by placing the pan in the oven while it heats up. I "paint" the butter on the sides and bottom of the pan, pour the mixture in there, and bake at 160-ish°C for about 20-30 minutes, until the sides rise (now that I put a picture you can really see what I mean). The sides will deflate when you take it out of the oven though, don't worry, it does that.

I serve it with fruit, sometimes apple sauce, or yoghurt.
It's a "sweet" dinner, but still nutritious.
You could make it for brunch by sprinkling it with icing sugar (confectionner's sugar) and maybe serving with chantilly cream or whipped cream... haven't done that yet :)

This is what it should look like:


This is a strange one which rised in the middle, we called it a ski hill:


So there you go!!

have a great weekend!
This post was edited on 19 October to add pictures, and a title to the Dutch Baby Recipe. Now as to why they call it a Dutch Baby, I dunno! If you do, leave me a comment!

Mmmmm, this may be our lunch today! I'll have to go check and see if we have any eggs.

Let me know how you go with it Julie. I've done it with substituting part of the flour with almond meal, and it was really nice, and added a wee bit of almond essence... I've never made a chocolate one because if I do that once, I will never be able to make it "regular" again, but I'm sure that would work too!! Nice way to disguise an egg dish!
