Mango Tapioca/芒果西米露

IMG_0433

This is something really delicious and easy to make, only it will take sometime time to prepare.

Chinese purple sticky rice 1 cup

Small tapioca Pearl 1/2 cup

2 big strawberries

1 mango

Coconut milk 2/3 cup

Coconut flavor Sugar 1/3 cup

Wash rice and cook it in a electronic pressure cooker for 18 minutes with 3 cups water.

Bring 2 cups water to boil then add tapioca, turn the heat off and leave it for 30 minutes with a lid on.

Drain the water from tapioca then add 2-3 more cups fresh cold water and start cooking again. At this point, the center of tapioca is still white, by the time the water is boiling again, the white in the center will disappear. when the white is totally disappear, turn the heat off and drain most of water.(depend on how thick do you want your dessert to be, don’t make it too thin though)

Add coconut milk and coconut sugar and bring it to boil again. (adjust the amount of  coconut milk and sugar according to your own preferences)

This dessert can be served hot or cold. If you want to eat it cold (more common) you should cook it with a little more water because it will absorb water while it cools down.

Scoop some purple rice by using a ice cream scoop and add it to tapioca, garnish it with strawberries and mango.

这是一道很好吃的甜点, 很容易做, 只是需要一些时间来准备。

中国紫糯米1杯

木薯西米1/2 杯

2个大草莓

1个芒果

椰奶2/3 杯

椰味糖1/3 杯

清洗糯米, 用电压力锅加用3杯水煮18分钟。

2杯水煮沸, 然后加入西米, 关火盖盖子静置半个小时。

将水从木薯中篦出, 再加2-3 杯新的冷水, 再开始煮。此时, 木薯的中心仍然是白色的, 当水再次煮开时, 中间的白色就会消失。当白色完全消失, 关火并篦掉大部分水。(取决于你希望你的甜点有多稠, 当然也不要让它太稀)

加入椰奶和椰子糖, 再次把它煮沸。(根据您的喜好调整椰奶和糖的量)

这道甜点可以冷吃或热吃。如果你想吃冷的 (更常见), 你应该多加一点水煮, 因为它冷却下来会吸收很多水。

用冰淇淋勺舀一些紫糯米加入西米中, 用草莓和芒果点缀。

I Didn’t think I was going to post it until someone asked me for recipe. He asked me what was the name of it and I actually didn’t have one. I love fresh fruits and their beautiful colors, I am trying to make any kind of food look beautiful, and this is actually successful! I didn’t think I would post it was because this is so simple, it doesn’t require cooking and can be done in no time.

I was making a mango crepe cake the other day, and I had some mango puree left, so I decided to make this: mango yogurt fruit cup.

On the bottom was mango puree, then fat free yogurt, followed by another layer mango puree, then mango whipped cream (heavy cream whip until firm peak then add some mango puree), finally topped with some fresh fruit.

If you don’t have time to do the whipped cream layer, just skip it by adding more yogurt instead. I sometimes add nuts or chia seeds in between too. But of course fresh fruits will always be a plus to this. Enjoy!

我之前都没想过张贴出来, 直到有人问我要食谱。他问我这叫名字, 我都答不上来。我喜欢新鲜的水果和他们美丽的颜色, 我很喜欢琢磨着怎么使任何一种食物看起来漂亮而让人有食欲, 这应该算是成功的例子!我不认为我会张贴它是因为这个非常简单, 感觉根本都没有贴的必要。

那天我在做芒果千层蛋糕, 我还有剩一些芒果酱, 所以我决定做这个: 芒果酸奶水果杯。

最底部是芒果浆, 然后是无脂酸奶, 然后是另一层芒果浆, 然后芒果生奶油 (奶油打到硬性发泡然后加一些芒果浆), 最后加一些新鲜水果在面上。

如果你没有时间做的奶油层, 跳过它加多一层酸奶代替也可以。有时我也会在两者之间加入坚果或奇亚籽。但当然新鲜水果将永远是最好的。

Spread the parchment paper on the bottom of the baking pan and pour the cake batter into it.

Bend the baking pan on the kitchen counter really hard a few times to get the air out. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. To see if it is ready, use a toothpick to insert inside the center of the cake if it comes out clean then it is ready.

蛋糕:

蛋糕的食谱是君之的, 几乎没有改变。 http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_4a5089ff0100cdet.html

配料

鸡蛋6个, 室温

低筋面粉200克,

细砂糖150克,

植物油或融化的黄油50克
烘焙:烤箱中层355 华氏度,15-20分钟

制作过程

准备一个稍微大点的盆,鸡蛋打入盆里。
再将白糖倒入。
取一个锅,锅里放入热水,把打蛋盆坐在热水里,并用打蛋器将鸡蛋打发。
随着不断的搅打,鸡蛋液会渐渐产生稠密的泡沫,变得越来越浓稠。

将鸡蛋打发到提起打蛋器,低落下来的蛋糊不会马上消失,可以在盆里的蛋糊表面画出清晰的纹路时,就可以了。(整个打发的过程约需要12分钟, 看你的打蛋器的马力有多大)
分3次倒入低筋面粉,用橡皮刮刀小心地从底部往上翻拌,使蛋糊和面粉混合均匀。不要打圈搅拌,以免鸡蛋消泡。
在搅拌好的蛋糕糊里倒入植物油或者融化的黄油,继续翻拌均匀。
在烤盘里铺上油纸,把拌好的蛋糕糊全部倒入烤盘。
把蛋糕糊抹平,端起来在地上用力震几下,可以让蛋糕糊表面变得平整,并把内部的大气泡震出来。把烤盘送入预热好355度的烤箱,烤15-20分钟,用牙签插入蛋糕内部,拔出来后牙签上没有粘上蛋糕,就表示熟了

组装:

让蛋糕完全冷却下来。

把蛋糕横切成3片

将第一个切片放在蛋糕垫上, 再放在蛋糕转盘上。

在第一片蛋糕上加一些奶酪霜, 在刮刀的帮助下, 均匀地抹在蛋糕上。然后将第二个切片覆盖上去, 重复同样的步骤, 直到所有3层蛋糕片都堆起来。使用一把刮蛋糕奶油专用刮刀把蛋糕的面和边都刮平。用你喜欢的浆果或水果装饰蛋糕。
