Entry corrected! Please revisit.
@Adam Kuban I have to admit this is my fave. Also, you're too nice.
@JAPinDC You're absolutely right...typo! It's been corrected. Thanks!
These were about $6 total, so $3 per sandwich, bought at Citarella.
The caramel forms a thin, crystallized layer as as it cools, but it's part of the appeal. We had it the next evening and it still tasted amazing. You can always cook the caramel, store it separately, and gently re-warm it before serving.
To mess with your head. Just kidding! I tested this recipe with separated eggs, egg whites beaten to stiff peaks and folded into the batter, but I wound up going with whole eggs. The ingredients list has been corrected and I no longer call for separated eggs.
You're absolutely right...piloncillo is a bit like dried out brown sugar. In this recipe, however, it dissolves in the hot liquid as you stir it. Use a wooden stirring spoon and lightly smash it if it looks like it's not dissolving.
2 pods, and they're usually available in the spice aisle. If not there, check the Latin American foods aisles in your supermarket.
@ judyr The total time includes the active time, so: 30 minutes for prepping the cake + 30 - 35 minutes for baking + 10 minutes for cooling in pan + 1 hour to cool to room temperature = 2 hours, 15 minutes
I hope that clears things up.
I agree on the danger of spices overwhelming the honey, however, it seems like the traditional route... this recipe does have more honey than most recipes, though, so I found it to be pretty well-balanced. You can always decrease or eliminate them altogether if that's your preference.
I really don't know what could be going wrong! I've made the recipe at least 4 times since its publication...that being said, the pudding isn't Jell-O brand thick... How runny was yours?
Recipe has been corrected; equipment list calls for a tube pan and that's what you should use. You could probably get 2 loaves with the amount of batter recipe yields if you prefer that format.
You can use small red or black kidney beans. See http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/05/gallopinto-nicaraguan-rice-and-beans-recipe.html
for recipe. I've never used a slow cooker for making beans from scratch, though, but I'm sure there are plenty of recipes out there to direct you.
I know. She said "S’ils n’ont pas de pain, qu'ils mangent de la brioche!" which translates into "If they don't have bread, let them eat brioche!" In fact, there isn't even hard proof that M.A. said that. In any case, this is a cake column, and "Let Them Eat Cake" is a phrase that people "get." "Let Them Eat Brioche" simply wouldn't translate, and, really, brioche couldn't possibly be twisted and turned into as many variations as cake can.
Merci pour votre commentaire.
@Adam Kuban WHAT ARE YOU DOING? What is this vegan-ish thing?!?!
@meleyna You just made my day!!!!
@mhalaweh Very true---I always make it a point to save some for the next day...and the day after. Try it with fried plantains or, take a shortcut and get plantain chips at the supermarket.
@SkippyMom1 Thank you! Cardamom is relatively simple to find and I would try to get it, otherwise skip it, and the cupcakes will taste lovely with the orange zest and chocolate icing combination.
@AnnetteGallagher Definitely try it with haloumi--it may melt a bit less, but it's perfect. I use it often as a substitute for certain Latin American cheeses.
@ks328 Glad you liked them!
Yes...and definitely check out Kenji's all-inclusive how-to on crusts, too! http://sweets.seriouseats.com/2011/07/the-food-lab-the-science-of-pie-how-to-make-pie-crust-easy-recipe.html
Settle down everyone; it was a stylistic choice. Food stylists sometimes take liberties. Sandwich will taste great regardless of how it looks in this image.
@westcoast_soul_vive I'd go with the agar...have you made other recipes with it before?
@Texas Monkey LOL. Enjoy!
