Pancakes Please!

I love pancakes, and once you’ve tried pancakes with fresh strawberries and freshly whipped Chantilly cream, there’s just no going back.

20160908_150139

If you prefer taking the easy route and using a pre-mix, whipping up some Chantilly cream will take you no more than 10 minutes, but if you’re feeling a little adventurous and want to make your pancakes from scratch, here’s a recipe that works for me. Bon appetite! :)

Ingredients :

  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder (NOT SODA! Orginal recipe uses 3½ teaspoons)
  • ½ teaspoon salt (Original recipe uses 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 11⁄4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

How to :

  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  • Heat a lightly oiled (I use butter) frying pan over medium high heat.
  • Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, brown on both sides and serve warm.

Tips :

  • Wait till you see bubbles popping in the centre before flipping.
  • Do not pat on your pancakes while cooking!
  • You can whip up a whole batch of Chantilly cream and keep them stored in the freezer, they freeze really well.
  • Sift some icing sugar over your pancakes and strawberries, this will help with sweetening sour berries!

Floral Throwbacks!

Are you ready for a #floralthrowback?

pscollection-augsale

Many of you have asked if I still make floral statement pieces since I went back to the F&B industry close to 2 years ago, and the truth is I just haven’t had the time to sit down and really get creative apart from working on a couple of customised wedding bouquets. Now, waiting to begin a new job and adventure, I finally have some time to post items I made but have been too busy to add to the store and I have listed these at very special prices. :)

A BIG THANK YOU to each one of you for your support all these years! :)

*All items shown are the actual pieces and I won’t be doing remakes at the moment.

Back to basics!

Time really flies! It’s been a year since my last blog post and I guess I have abandoned this blog for way too long. 3owls

This trio of owls will be available in a separate post.

Well, Shopify has decided to up it’s monthly rates and I am way too occupied with my day job to manage a proper online store right now so I figured why not go back to where I started? Shopify doesn’t let me access my current inventory, let alone uploaded files and product pages so I have to post everything here from scratch (unless I manage to figure something out!

Speaking of day jobs… I have left Absinthe and am currently waiting to embark on a new adventure at Beni Restaurant at Mandarin Gallery next month! Exciting times ahead!

Just to help you navigate… Just click on “shop handmade” and it will take you to different categories of products like “Apartment” or “Bags”! For a start, I have already uploaded two remaining novelty cupcake containers in the Apartment section!

clickhere

For now, I’m trying to put as many items as possible in one post so that they’re not too spread out, if anyone has any idea on how to make this more “user-friendly” please do not hesitate to let me know! I must admit I need some time to get used to blogging again after a whole year!

Until the next post! xx

The Discovery of Key Lime Pie

A few months back while talking to someone, “key lime pie” came up in the conversation.

I’ve heard of key lime pie before but never tried it, or even seen them on dessert menus here… So being the curious cat that I am, I decided to bake one!

11027942_10155655754820788_1353442777275119249_n

My first key lime pie and I fell in love with it, everything about it.

It was tangy, it was refreshing, it was just… WOW. I don’t know for sure if digestive biscuits are considered graham crackers, but they work fine for me as a substitute. In fact I always use digestive biscuits when a recipe calls for a graham cracker crust.

Here’s the original recipe from Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant in Miami! Trust me, it’s totally worth the time and effort. I’m definitely baking another one of these soon.

What You’ll Need:
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup Key lime juice (see Tips)
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat bottom of a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar; mix well then press mixture over bottom and up sides of prepared pie plate to form a crust; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat egg yolks and lime zest 5 minutes, or until fluffy. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk and continue beating 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low and gradually beat in lime juice just until combined. Pour filling into pie crust.
  4.  Bake 10 minutes, or until firm in the center. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack, then cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
Tips
  • If you can’t find fresh Key limes or Key lime juice, it’s okay to substitute regular limes, even though it won’t be exactly the same.
  • This is best served very cold, so we recommend placing it in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
  • Just before serving, top pie with whipped cream or whipped topping and garnish with lime slices, if you’d like.
