This is my 100th post, let me pick a long lost recipe (not written anywhere, but vaguely in my memory) to blog.  It was introduced by an auntie 20 years ago.. so I wasn’t sure if I remembered the proportion right.  Then I made it again a few days ago, and thanks God it did set.  So the proportion was right.

My parents love peanuts.  In Asia, peanut allergy is unheard of, but it’s so common here in North America.  Whenever I made glutinous rice balls, I only use peanut fillings instead of the more common red bean paste.  I still have to come up with the perfect recipe, especially when all the recipes out in the internet have such big difference in the powder to liquid proportion.  After a couple trials, this proportion is pretty good in terms of stickiness and sweetness.  Also, I never like to wash too many stuff.  So using microwave is perfect for a lazy bug like me.

This is one of the easiest nut recipe .   Adapted from

http://allrecipes.com/recirpe/sugar-coated-pecans/

But the original recipe uses way too much sugar and and is too complicated in the way that it requires unnecessary use of ziplock bag and pot.  Mine is simple, all in one pot and needs less cooking time.

I don’t plan to share my recipe as I didn’t follow one and just whip in whatever I think sounds right for a 10″ square cake.  Turns out it’s failure as I didn’t add enough gelatin, so once I removed the pan, the side of the cake starts to collapse slightly and we had to cut the cake quickly.  Everyone ended up having a pudding on the plate, yet we all had fun celebrating my little boy’s 100th day.  Being born in the year of Rabbit, my little boy deserved cute little rabbit cookies that I made for the guests.  What a fun evening with lots of food and love!

May be I should call it passion fruit mousse cake.  It’s a very light cheesecake that you cannot even taste much cream cheese.

I searched online trying to look for a good recipe, but gave up because most of them are quite complicated and requires egg yolks (I have to avoid raw eggs).  So I decided to dump whatever I have together, and I’m pleasantly surprised with the good results.

First time I saw about sugar spinning was from Pastry Chef Becky.  She worked at Pan Pacific Hotel and she demonstrated an “apple tarte tatin” dessert with a mesmerizing sugar decoration.  It looks really fun and I attempted once with sugar, corn syrup and it failed.  I so want to make it, thus I actually called up to the radio station when she was on air and asked for recipe.  I happened to make puff pastry from scratch, have a granny smith apple at home, and have 1/4 box of vanilla ice cream.  Isn’t that the perfect ingredients to make the apple dessert that I can experiment the sugar spinning?

It turns out a success….. very very fun.  I think I will do it again.
