Strawberry Vanilla Slice

I was being really busy and sick recently, therefore didn’t have time to update any. I wanted to post about the great shopping deal but apparently the pictures that I taken has some error with it and all my things are somewhere in my luggage and its really troublesome to take every single thing out especially now I’m living at Jowie’s Aunt’s. Anyways I’m not too busy for now, I just need to do some reading of the books that I have borrowed from the library. I have been delayed the reading ever since I borrowed it for the first time.

Upon request from Diana, she wanted me to post up the recipe for the dessert that I have made for everyone during her visit. So this is it.

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 2 sheets of butter puff pastry
  2. 1 cup of custard powder
  3. Half cup of castor sugar
  4. 300ml of thicken cream
  5. 2 and a half cup of milk (You can use skim milk if you want to)
  6. Strawberry Jam

Methods

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C and line a 22cm square cake pan and 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Place 1 sheet thawed butter puff pastry onto each baking tray. Prick it all over with a fork and bake it for 10-12 minutes till crisp. Press to flatten if necessary.
  3. Using a serrated knife trim the edges to fit into the pan and place 1 piece into the base.
  4. Combine the custard powder, castor sugar, thicken cream and milk into a saucepan and stir over at a medium heat until it boils and thickens.
  5. Pour the custard onto the pastry base and press the second pastry sheet on top and set to cool.
  6. Spread a thin layer of strawberry jam on top of the second pastry sheet. Chill till firm and then cut into squares.

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe and GOOD LUCK!

Unbaked Oreo Cheesecake for Jowie!

I have made an unbaked Oreo Cheesecake for my beloved Jowie! It was pretty successful. I’ve gotten the recipe from Malaysianbabes.com, a forum that I’ve frequently visit. I did this as for Jowie’s birthday cake, I know it’s a bit late (I’m sorry ) but I did it sincerely with all my heart and effort. Want the recipe? Look at the pictures of how it looks like first!

INGREDIENTS:

For the crust:

  1. 120grams of Oreo biscuits (separate the cream and biscuit, only use the biscuit but keep the cream for filling)
  2. 70grams unsalted butter

For the filling:

  1. 250grams of cream cheese (soften)
  2. 120grams of castor sugar
  3. 2 Oreo biscuits (separate the cream and biscuit, crush the biscuits)
  4. 150grams of whipped cream
  5. 1 tablespoon of gelatin
  6. 80ml of full cream milk

Making the crust

  1. Crush the Oreo biscuits and mix it with the unsalted butter.
  2. Press it into a round spring form pan, which can be open so it is easy to take out the cake at the end (make sure to press hard enough so that the crust will not break).
  3. Chill in the fridge till firm.

Making the filling

  1. Beat cream cheese and castor sugar until smooth.
  2. Add whipped cream, Oreo cream which has been separated from the biscuit and the 2 crushed biscuits.
  3. Heat the full cream milk and gelatin in a saucepan and constantly stir until boil.
  4. Pour the milk with gelatin into the cream mixture and mix well.
  5. Spread the mixture over the crust, covering all of it.
  6. Chill in the fridge for 3 hours before serving.

Happy trying and good luck!

Crystal Fruit Jelly with Custard

Last post I have mentioned about posting up the recipe for making the barbeque desserts where everyone enjoy it. It’s basically less sugar, tasty and healthy. I have come out with this recipe ever since I have eaten some similar dessert but this time I have added more ingredients. Hope you will enjoy it too.

Recipe Name: Crystal Fruit Jelly with Custard

Serving: 10 servings

The ingredients are:

  1. 2 boxes of You’ll Love Coles Strawberry Natural Flavoured Jelly Crystals (85 grams each)
  2. 1 can of You’ll Love Coles Peach Slices in Fruit Juice
  3. 4 fresh Kiwis
  4. 1 litre of Homebrand Custard Vanilla Flavoured
  5. 100 grams of Winn Red Glacé Cherries
  6. 10 clear glasses / wine glasses / champagne glasses

First, is to prepare the crystal jelly. For this crystal jelly that I bought, I’ll just have to use hot water and mix with the powder. Pour it into the glasses and let it set. Leave it for four hours to set perfectly.

Second, while waiting the jelly to set, skin-off the kiwi and dice it into smaller pieces. Chill it in the refrigerator to make sure it’s always fresh.

After the four hours, tilt a little the glass filled with jelly. This is to make sure the crystal jelly is set. Take the diced kiwis, put it on top of the crystal jelly. Later, take the peach and put it onto the crystal jelly as well. The fruit juice is no longer needed, you can either drink it, let others to drink or dispose it.

Fourth, pour the vanilla flavoured custard into the glass covering the some part of the fruits. I would prefer vanilla flavoured because the smell is much soothing and sweet.

Lastly, distribute the cherries as topping on the custard. Chill it for 2-3 hours and it will be ready to serve.

Good luck! Enjoy it like the rest of my friends.
