1. Prepare a mold (15x15cm square), insert parchment paper. (Paper must be higher than the mold, by 3 to 5cm). Cover the bottom of the mold with 2 aluminium layers. Set aside.
2. In a cooking bowl, add the oil and unsalted butter. Microwave 2 min at 600w to reach about 80℃. Add the flour, using a cooking sieve and mix well with an egg whisk. Set aside.
3. In a small cup, pour the milk and add the vanilla extract. Mix and microwave 20 sec at 600w to reach about 40℃. Then add it to the cake mixture in one go. Mix well.
4. Add egg yolks in 3 to 4 times. Mix lightly at each addition. Set aside.
5. In an another bowl, add white egg and whisk with an electric hand mixer. Once it starts getting harder, start adding the sugar in 3 to 4 times. Whisk until medium peaks form.
6. Add 1/3 of the egg white to the egg yolk mixture, mix well. Add another third, mix gently together. Finally add all the remaining white egg. Mix with a rubber spatula until egg whites and yolks are well combined.
7. Transfer into the prepared mold and flatten the surface with a rubber spatula. Remove bubbles using a chopstick.
8. In a oven-safe pan, over a folded cloth, place the cake mold. Add warm water (about 40℃), 2 to 3cm deep, and bake in a preheated oven (without fan) at 150C° for 1h ~ 1h 10mn.
9. Drop from about 10cm height to prevent deflating. Unmold and transfer onto a wire rack. Gently remove the parchment paper.
10 Cut in half the cake and slice to serve! You can also sandwich whipped cream in it and fruits to enjoy :)
1. Start by cooking your rice. Meanwhile make the sushi vinegar : In a cooking pot add vinegar, sugar and salt. Cook until almost boiled and sugar and salt are completely melted. Remove from the heat and set it aside.
2. Transfer the cooked rice into a heat-safe bowl, and pour the sushi vinegar from #1 on it. 'Slice' the rice with a rice paddle and let it cool down.
4. Spread about 180g sushi rice evenly. Leave an about 2cm edge uncovered.
5. Spread mayonnaise along the center line, as much as you want, over the rice. Place avocado, onion and salmon along that line too. Then roll up the maki tightly with a sushi rolling mat. Make 2 more sushi rolls.
6. Cut slices in the sushi roll with a clean and moistened knife. Please clean your knife before each new slice.
1. In a small cooking pot, add strawberry and sugar, cook until strawberries are soft.
2. Transfer into a safe-heat bowl and blend until smooth. Then set aside.
3. In an another bowl, add the butter (softened), and mix with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Then add the strawberry puree little by little (or else butter and puree would separate). Mix well at each addition, continue until you use it all up.
4. Add a dash of salt if you used unsalted butter. Mix. Transfer into a small cup, cover and chill in the fridge.
Enjoy with a slice of bread or anything else you like!
1.Making Genmai Wash the rice and drain it. In a frying-pan (no oil), add the rice and cook for 1~2 minutes over medium heat. Then add water (2tbsp). Keep cooking until nicely browned. Once it turns brown, then reduce the heat to low. Set aside.
2. In a cooking bowl, add flour, salt, malt powder (optional), yeast and the genmai you just made in #1. Mix well. Add water and mix with a spatula until it comes together. Cover with saran wrap and leave 15 minutes.
3. After 15 min, mix about 1 min with a spatula. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes.
4. After 15 min, mix a few times (about 20 sec). Finally cover and let rise in a warm place for a few hours or until it doubles in size.
5. Dust the work surface with a bit of flour, then put the dough on it. Split it in 2 halves. Cover and let them rest 10~15 min.
6. With the first half, using your hand, stretch the dough into a small (approximately) rectangular shape. Fold both sides length-wise over the centreline. Then fold again in the same way making sure you close the seam well (along the centreline). With the seam side down, roll the dough into a 30~35 cm long slender loaf. You can hold it vertically to help stretch it and take shape too.
7. Transfer the baguette to a floured cloth, seam side down to rest. When bough baguette doughs are done, lift up the cloth between the 2 baguettes into a pleat. It will help the dough hold its shape. Let it rise for about 40min (or more) in a warm place or until it about doubles in size (the volume increase actually depends on the temperature).
8. Pre-heat the oven to 240℃ degree.
9. Once the baguettes have risen, gently transfer them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (seam side down). Slash cut each baguette 3 or 4 times (at a 45 degree angle) along its length, using a baker's lame, razor blade or a very sharp knife.
10. Mist lightly with water and put the baguette into the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes.
11. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
