Crumpets Recipe

Crumpets

07.10.09 by Jackie

Crumpets are very similar to pancakes, but they are much smaller. I love the characteristic holes on top. Those holes are a result of the addition of extra baking soda to the yeast batter. Crumpets are perfect either savory or sweet, and just saying the name sets the perfect mood for a fancy tea party or Sunday brunch.

I hosted a dinner for vegetarians tonight, so I served the crumpets as appetizers. I placed a little dollop of crème fraîche and vegetarian quinoa caviar on top. It was so good.

Pandan and Coconut Brioche Recipe

Pandan and Coconut Brioche

05.28.09 by timran

Brioche is a French bread made out of eggs and butter. I remember every morning getting a brioche from the neighborhood bakery when I was a student in Paris. It tastes very buttery, slightly sweet and it has a fluffy texture.

I made some pizza today and I had some dry active yeast left. We got some Asian powdered coconut candies from the Asian market and I had a few knick-knacks like pandan paste from the pantry. I haven't baked in a while so I decided to make something original and give a twist to the traditional brioche.

Homemade Waffles

05.15.09 by Jackie

Waffles are a great way to say I love you. There is something about the warmth, the color and the texture of homemade waffles that is beyond compare.

We make them pretty often in our home, especially on weekends but they still maintain an allure that gets everyone in the house gathered around waiting in anticipation.

Maybe it's the steam coming off the waffle iron that is so mesmerizing. I don't know. What I do know is that if you make a plate of waffles smothered in butter and maple syrup for that special someone in your life, they will definitely appreciate it .

Brown Butter Crouton and Mandarin Segment Salad with a Sugar Cane Vinaigrette Recipe

Again! I had a leftover baguette from last night's dinner. But never fear, I had a plan. I have a number of go-to recipes that are tailored for leftovers. Waste not, want not.

Croutons are a perfect way to recycle stale, crusty bread. To kick up the flavor, I soaked the bread in brown butter. In French, brown butter is called beurre noisette, which literally means hazelnut butter. It really does impart a nutty flavor to the croutons. I used the extra brown butter for the vinaigrette that I paired with sugar cane juice and sugar cane vinegar. I also added whole mandarin segments to add a citrus-y flavor.
