HALLOWEEN Frankenstein Matcha Green Tea Pound Cake - Video Recipe

In this video, I will show you a fun idea to enjoy matcha green tea pound cake ;)

Adding meringue in the pound cake makes it moist and fluffy!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zV4dPCw_K-Q



Sorry my drawing is awful…
I know you can draw better than me!!! hehe

---------------------------------
HALLOWEEN Frankenstein Matcha Green Tea Pound Cake

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 2hrs
Number of servings: 1 loaf

Necessary Equipment:
18×8cm (7x3inch) loaf pan

Ingredients:
100g (3.5oz.) unsalted butter *room temperature
80g (2.8oz.) granulated sugar
2 eggs *room temperature
2 tbsp. soymilk or milk
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
A
* 120g (4.2oz.) cake flour
* 1&1/2 tbsp. matcha green tea powder
* 1/2 tsp. baking powder
chocolate pens *you can draw 2 Frankensteins with 1 pen

Directions:
1. Line the loaf pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Mix A and sift them together if you have time.
2. Cream the butter in a large bowl with a wire whisk. Add 80g (2.8oz.) granulated sugar little by little and mix well.
3. Separate egg whites and egg yolks. Add the egg yolks one by one and mix well. Then add soymilk and mix well.
4. Make meringue in a separate bowl: Whip egg whites with an electric mixer until foamy. Gradually add granulated sugar 1/3 at a time, then continue to whip until stiff glossy peaks form when you lift the beaters.
5. Add 1/3 of the meringue into the butter mixture (3.), and blend well with a spatula.
6. Sift in A and fold in with a spatula. Then add the rest of the meringue and fold in gently but thoroughly.
7. Pour the batter into the pan and smooth the top. Drop the pan lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter. Use the spatula to cut an incision lengthwise down middle of cake to prevent unwanted cracks on the surface.
8. Bake at 180C (350F) for 15 minutes. Then turn down to 160C (320F) and bake for 35-40 minutes. *Cover the cake with aluminum foil if it starts to brown too much. Insert a stick into the cake to check whether it is baked or not.
9. Remove the cake from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.
10. Slice the pound cake. Set a chocolate pen in a cup of hot water for a few minutes. Cut the tip of the chocolate pen and draw Frankenstein faces on pound cake slices.

* When the cake is completely cool, wrap tightly in plastic wrap. It will last wrapped this way for few days (in the fridge).
* You can also wrap each slices of pound cake individually with a plastic wrap.

When the water comes to a full boil, turn off the heat and cover the pan with a lid with no holes. Set a timer and let them steam in the hot water for about 15 minutes. Drain the eggs and cool immediately in cold water. Shake the pan to break the shells. Then peel.

3. Mix A in a bowl, add the mashed egg yolks, and mix until smooth.
4. Transfer the mixture in a plastic bag or a pastry bag, cut off the corner of the bag to create a hole, then pipe it into egg white halves.
5. Sprinkle with paprika powder. Cut out nori sheet for the eyes, noses, and mouths of Jack-O'-Lantern faces. Attach the nori faces and pumpkin seeds on the eggs.

Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

HALLOWEEN Miso Simmered Eggplant Witch - Video Recipe

Miso simmered eggplant is a popular dish in Japan. I arranged it for Halloween ;)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLoFMtyJ_FM

Without a question, it goes great with white rice!!!



---------------------------------
Miso Simmered Eggplant Witch

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
4 eggplants (5-6 inches long)
A
* 200ml Dashi broth (using packaged Dashi powder saves time)
* 1 tbsp. Mirin (sweet sake)
* 1 tbsp. Sake
* 1/2 tbsp. sugar
B
* 1 tbsp. red Miso
* 2 tbsp. white Miso
4 star-shaped carrot slices

Directions:
1. Make "Chasen Nasu" and soak in water to remove the bitter taste. How to make "Chasen Nasu" is HERE: http://createeathappy.blogspot.com/2008/09/chasen-nasu.html
2. Heat A in a deep pot, dissolve miso in 1/2 cup of Dashi broth, add Chasen Nasu and carrot slices, then cover with Otoshi Buta (drop-lid) and cook on low heat for 10 minutes. Flip eggplants, cover and simmer for another 10 minutes until the eggplants are tender.
3. Pour in the soup in a dish, then twist and press the eggplant by hand to form the witch shape.
5. Attach carrot slices with toothpicks (like magic sticks) and stick them into the eggplant witch.

Drop-lid is called "Otoshi Buta" a in Japanese. It is traditionally made of wood but you can use aluminum foil. They ensure that the heat is evenly distributed and reduce the tendency of liquid to boil with large bubbles and break the fragile ingredients.

Halloween Mummy Shrimp (Ebi) Tempura Udon - Video Recipe

Shrimp (Ebi) Tempura Udon is a very popular Japanese dish. I arranged it for Halloween.

When Udon gets dry, it's gluten gets strong and sticky, so I wrapped it around Tempura in that instant ;D

---------------------------------
Mummy Shrimp (Ebi) Tempura Udon

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 6

Ingredients:
6 Ebi (shrimp)
60g Nissin Tempura flour
100cc water
vegetable oil for frying
6 Nori sheet (cut the large sheet into 4 squares)
cream cheese
frozen Udon noodles or pre-boiled Udon noodles
sliced cheese and Nori sheet for eyes
Yamasa Konbu Tsuyu (3 times concentrated Konbu kelp seaweed soup stock) or Tentsuyu (Tempura dipping sauce)

Directions:
1. Shell shrimps (leave their tails), devein, and make incisions in their stomach side to straighten them. Then cut off the tip of the tail and remove the water inside to avoid splatters when frying.
2. Mix Nissin Tempura flour and the water very well.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan to 180~190C (340~350F). Lightly dip the shrimps in the batter and fry them immediately until golden and crisp. Drain Tempura on a rack or a sheet of clean paper towel. (Do not fry too many at once.) Cool down until you can touch.
4. Boil Udon noodles as directed on package and drain well.
5. Spread cream cheese on Nori sheet.
6. Wrap shrimp Tempura with the Nori sheet. When Udon gets dry, it's gluten gets strong and sticky. In that instant, wrap Udon around the shrimp Tempura.
7. Cut out sliced cheese and Nori sheet to make their eyes.
8. Dilute 20cc Konbu Tsuyu with 40cc water (make as much as you want) and bring to a boil.
9. Pour the Konbu Tsuyu over the Mummy Shrimp Tempura Udon and enjoy!

You can eat as cold noodles like Zaru Udon (chilled Udon noodles), or microwave before you eat.

Jack-o'-Lantern Bento

Hi! Today, the high is 75F (24C) but very hot at home in the room... I am sweating!

Guess what! On Saturday I again had body composition done at gym. Believe it or not, in another 4 weeks, I lost a pound of muscle and gained 0.6 pound of fat... I'm going a wrong way! An instructor told me that it could happen if I got used to work out! He says I need to concentrate on my menu... I thought I could get in shape if I go to gym and get it all done :( Nothing is easy!

Anyway, I am still losing the contests. I thought my Jack-o'-Lantern Bento was a good idea... It's face is an egg yolk. I drew the face by cutting nori sheet.



It was a busy day at work. I am drowsy now! Hopefully, see you tomorrow again ;)
