  6. Pour the melted sugar into a 9 inch round baking dish, then put this aside on a heat-proof surface.
  7. Add the eggs, milk, cream, sweetened condensed milk and pure vanilla extract to your blender. You can also use you food processor, or mix this by hand.

After a week on the road, I'm back, and just in time for a delicious Mother's Day treat. Coconut chocolate dipped Madeleines are super-quick and easy to make. Traditionally baked in a scalloped Madeleine pan, you can also use mini muffin pan if you don't have the real thing.
Ingredients
  • 6 Eggs
  • 200g Caster sugar
  • 300g All-purpose flour
  • 200g Butter, melted
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 orange
Instructions
  1. This recipe goes very quickly so it's a good idea to have everything prepared before you start.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200c or 400f.
  3. Measure out the eggs, caster sugar, all-purpose flour, melted butter, lemon zest and orange zest.
  4. Place the eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Whisk this vigorously for 3 to 4 minutes until all of the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is silky smooth.
  6. Pour in the flour and use a spatula to work this in until all of the flour is toally incorporated.
  7. Add the lemon and orange zest and fold this into the mixture.
  8. Pour in the melted butter and fold this until totally incorporated.
  9. For demonstration purposes I am going to do both the traditional and muffin shaped Madeleines.
  10. Spoon the mixture into the hollows of the pans leaving just enough space for rising.
  11. Bake the Madeleines for 12 minutes until crispy and golden on the outside.
  12. Remove the Madeleines from the oven and transfer them to cooling racks. Allow them to cool completely before continuing.
  13. Once cooled, melt the chocolate in double boiler or in your microwave by zapping it for 10 seconds at a time stirring after each heating.
  14. Lay out a non-stick sheet or a length of baking parchment on your work surface. Dip the wide end of the Madeleines into the chocolate, shake off any excess and place them on the parchment.
  15. Sprinkle each Madeleine immediately with desiccated coconut and allow the chocolate to set before serving.

For the Mousse
  • 75ml Cream

How to Make Meringues - Perfect Meringues - Crispy Outside, Soft Inside!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Sweets / Candy / Dessert
 
A good meringue is hard to find.... crispy on the outside and soft and squishy on the inside. This recipe takes the mystery out of how to make perfect meringues.
Ingredients
  • 6 Large egg whites
  • 350g Caster sugar
  • 2.5ml Salt
Instructions
  1. Place the egg whites and salt in your mixer bowl. Fit the whisk to your machine and whisk on low speed for 60 seconds.
  2. Increase the speed to medium-high and whisk until the egg holds a peak.
  3. Turn the machine speed to high and gradually add the caster sugar one tablespoonful at a time.
  4. Once all of the caster sugar is added allow the machine to continue whisking until the mixture is thick and glossy. This process can take anything from 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how efficient your mixer is.
  5. Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment and load the meringue mixture into a piping bag. Pipe the meringue rounds onto the parchment, leaving a little space between each.
  6. To make dessert cups or baskets, pipe the base of the basket to a diameter of 90mm, or 3.5 inches, then continue piping over the outside ring to build a wall.
  7. Bake the meringues in a preheated oven at 140c or 284f for 30 to 40 minutes and the color has darkened slightly.
  8. Allow the meringues to cool in the oven with door slightly open.
  9. Store the meringues in an air-tight container as they will soften due to humidity.

Silicone Molded Chocolate Cups - How to Mold Chocolate Cups in Silicone Muffin Molds
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert / Chocolate
 
Over Valentine's we showed you how to make elegant balloon molded chocolate cups. Today we're looking at how to make a similar cup using silicone muffin molds.
Ingredients
  • Compound / Cooking chocolate
Instructions
  1. I am using compound or cooking chocolate. It is ideal for these types of projects as it has a higher melting point and does not require tempering.
  2. Melt the chocolate in your melting pot, or in s double boiler or even in your microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating.
  3. Pour enough chocolate into the first silicone muffin cup to fill it 2 thirds. Lift the cup and pour the chocolate into the second cup.
  4. Continue with this process until all of the cups are coated. As you go the quantity of chocolate will be depleted and you will need to swirl the last few cups around to get the same coating level. After each pouring, scrape the edges of the muffin cups clean using the back of a knife.
  5. Transfer the cups to your refrigerator for 10 minutes to set.
  6. Remove the cups from the fridge and repeat the coating process again.
  7. Return the cups to the fridge to set once more.
  8. After 10 minutes the chocolate will be set. Loosen the edge of the silicone muffin cup from the raised edge of the chocolate. Start turning the entire silicone mold inside out out to free the chocolate cup.
  9. And there it is, perfectly molded chocolate cups with a raised edge that acts as a handle. You can fill these with anything fom chocolate mousse to brandy soaked fruit and cream.

Valentine's Day Chocolate Balloon Bowls - How to Make Chocolate Balloon Bowls at Home!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Valentines day is just round the corner. Chocolate balloon cups are a novel way to present your special dessert. In this video we look at making the 3 Basic Shapes of Balloon Bowl, or cups.
Ingredients
  • 250g Compound / cooking chocolate
  • Mini-size water balloons
Instructions
  1. Melt the chocolate in your melting pot, or in a double boiler. You can also do this in a microwave by heating it for 15 seconds at a time, stirring well between each heating.
  2. I am using compound chocolate, or cooking chocolate which is perfect for this as it does not require tempering.
  3. The chocolate will melt smooth at just over 40c or 104f. Pour the chocolate into a cold bowl and stir briefly. Allow the chocolate to cool to 28c or 83f.
  4. While the chocolate cools, line a baking sheet with parchment, and inflate as many miniature water balloons as you require.
  5. By this stage the chocolate will have cooled sufficiently.
  6. For the first and simplest shape, dunk a balloon into the chocolate end first. Use a teaspoon to spread a small circle of chocolate on the parchment then transfer the coated balloon to this spot.
  7. Use the teaspoon to make a second spot. Dunk another balloon in the chocolate end first. Holding it in the chocolate, tilt the balloon north, then south, then east then west. This will result in a petal shaped cup. Transfer the balloon to its spot.
  8. Use the teaspoon to make a slightly elongated spot on the parchment. Dunk the third balloon in the chocolate while holding it sideways. This will give you a pear shaped bowl.
  9. Transfer this to its spot.
  10. Place the tray in your refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes to set.
  11. Once set, you need to deflate the balloons. The trick is to deflate them slowly otherwise the chocolate will crack. Pinch some of the balloon near the and snip a hole in the balloon above your fingers. Let the air escape slowly and pull the balloon free. Repeat this with the remaining balloons.
  12. You can fill you cups with anything you like. Here I am simply piping whipped cream and adding strawberries.

Making Quality Pie Shells Fast Using a Tortilla Press - Increasing Pie Production with a Few Simple Tricks!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Pastry
 
The humble tortilla press is far more useful than it appears. When you're making pies or tarts this brilliant tool can cut the time it takes to make the pastry shells dramatically. Use this alongside the shell forming technique I first demonstrated in our course on pie making, and you'll cut the pastry forming time by 80%.
Ingredients
Using 5 Inch #680 Pie Foils
  • 130g of pastry for each pie base
  • 100g of pastry for each pie lid
Instructions
  1. Starting with pot pies, line the entire press with cling-wrap or plastic film. These inexpensive bread bags work very well.
  2. Roll the bottom pastry portion into a ball and place in the center of the bottom plate of the press. Flatten it out slightly and fold the plastic over this. Close the press and use the lever to press the lid flat. Repeat this with all of the pie bottoms.
  3. Use your rolling pin to roll these out further to a diameter of 7 inches.
  4. Invert a 5 inch #680 pie foil on your work surface. Open one side of the plastic on one of the pastries. Drop the pastry over the pie foil. Even the pastry around the edges and drop another foil over this. Press this down firmly around the edges.
  5. Pick the whole lot up and flip it over. Press the inner foil down firmly around the edges of the base, then the remove the foil and plastic. And there it is.... a perfectly formed, perfectly even pie base. Repeat this with the remaining bases.
  6. Use the same pressing procedure to press out the lids. For this demonstration I am not filling the pie. Drop the lid onto the pie and press the edges down gently to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges, then trim away the excess pastry with a sharp blade. Punch 2 vents in the lid and you're ready to go.
  7. To make tart shells is just as simple. Drop the pressed and rolled tart pastry over an inverted pie foil. Drop another shell over this and press this down firmly around the edges.
  8. Lift the whole lot up and flip it over. Press the inside edges of the inner foil down firmly, then remove the inner foil and plastic. Trim away the excess pastry with a sharp blade.
  9. Use a fork to dock the pastry. This prevents the pastry from bubbling away from the foil in the next step.
  10. Press a square of foil into each pastry. Fill the pastries with rice, beans or baking beads and bake the tart shells in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for 10 minutes. Remove the shells from the oven, carefully remove the rice and foil squares, then return these to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
  11. Your tart shells are now ready for filling and processing.
  12. Not only does this process save you tons of time, but also keeps the pastry much cooler, and inhibits shrinkage, resulting in a much better quality pie or tart.

With festive season in full swing, here's a tip on the sweeter side of life. Caramel is used in a whole range of desserts and this is how you can make your own using simple sweetened condensed milk.
Ingredients
  • Tinned / Canned condensed milk
Instructions
  1. You can use any brand of sweetened condensed milk, and you can make as many cans at a time as your pot will hold.
  2. To start, remove the labels from the cans as these can make a mess of your pot.
  3. Place the cans in your pot and pour in enough hot water to cover the cans completely.
  4. Put the pot over medium heat and bring this to a simmer. Set your timer and allow this to simmer for a full 3 hours.
  5. Check the water level every so often and top it up with boiling kettle water to keep the cans fully submerged.
  6. Once 3 hours is up, transfer the pot to your sink and run cold water into the pot until the cans have cooled enough to handle.
  7. Remove the cans from the pot and transfer them to the sink. Allow these to continue cooling in the sink submerged in cold water for 30 minutes.
  8. After 30 minutes, the cans are safe to open. And there it is... beautifully creamy caramel.

With winter just around the corner everyone is getting the coughs and sniffles. For the first time in the history of our channel, we have guest chef, my sister-in-law, Eileen here to show us how to make the most amazing all-natural cough drops to combat these winter ailments.
Ingredients
  • 100ml Water
  • 30ml Honey
  • 1 Cup sugar (brown granulated)
  • 5ml Ground cinnamon
  • 10ml Ground ginger
  • 30ml Fresh lemon juice
  • 1.25ml Roughly crushed cloves
Instructions
  1. Measure out the water, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, roughly crushed cloves, honey and lemon juice.
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a medium sized pot. A small pot will not do, as the mixture bubbles up during cooking and may overflow. Not only could this be dangerous, but it definitely would be very messy.
  3. You will also need 2 x 20 hole chocolate molds. Rub these with a light coating of cooking oil.
  4. Place the pot over high heat and stir initially until everything is combined.
  5. Bring this to a rapid boil, stirring every 60 seconds, making sure to scrape down the sides of the pot. Continue to boil for 5 minutes. The mixture will darken significantly during this time.
  6. After 5 minutes, stir briefly and drop a little of the mixture into cold water. Give it 5 seconds to cool and pick it up with your fingers. If it is still gooey, then it's not ready. Give it another 30 seconds and test again. This time you will see that it sets hard as soon as I pick it up.
  7. Remove the pot from the heat and stir the mixture until the bubbling subsides.
  8. Using a pointed spoon, start filling the molds. Once all the recesses are filled, put these aside to set at room temperature. Don't be tempted to set the in your refrigerator as the drops will turn to toffee. Depending on the weather, it can take from 30 minutes to a few hours to set.
  9. Once set, sprinkle a sheet with icing sugar and pop the drops out of the mold onto the sheet. Sprinkle more icing sugar on top of this. Transfer the drops to a container and shake them up to get an even coating of sugar. The sugar prevents the drops from sticking together.
  10. These drops can be stored indefinitely until required.

Romany Creams are legendary cookies with creamy milk chocolate, coconut and a crisp crunchiness that cannot be described.
Ingredients
  • 375g Butter, softened
  • 325g Sugar
  • 125ml Boiling water
  • 40g Cocoa powder
  • 425g Self-raising flour
  • 160g Desecated coconut
  • 250g Cornflakes, crushed

  2. Dissolve the cocoa powder in the hot water and add this to the bowl and continue to mix this for a further minute until totally combined.
  3. Place the flour, crushed cornflakes and coconut in a large mixing bowl and pour in the chocolate butter mixture. Mix this by hand or machine until you have a thick chocolate batter.
  4. Line 3 to 4 baking sheets with baking parchment. Scoop heaped teaspoons of the batter up, roll them into balls, place them on the sheets and flatten them into rounds using the back of a fork. Leave a half inch of space between each cookie to allow for rising and spreading. Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180c for 12 minutes.
  5. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to racks.
  6. While the cookies cool, melt the chocolate in your double boiler, or gently in your microwave oven.
  7. Working with one cookie at a time, spread a generous amount of the chocolate onto the smooth side of the cookie. Place another on top of this and put the completed Romany Cream aside to set. Continue until all of the cookies are complete.
  8. Once the chocolate has set, you can store these priceless items in an air-tight container indefinitely until required. This recipe will yield about 40 of these amazing treats.
