Caramel or Maple Bavarian Cream (a dessert or a cream for piping)

You will need to make some Caramel if this is what you want to make. I find that Maple syrup is just as good if not better. If it is a Caramel you want then follow the below instructions.

Heat in any non iron pan with a heavy bottom (non ferrous) One cup of granulated sugar

Stir it constantly for 8 to 10 minutes until it becomes straw coloured. Add to this off of the heat very slowly because adding it to quickly might create an explosion ¼ cup of very hot water. This will also make the syrup smooth. Should you wish to have it a bit thicker place the mixture back on the heat on low for an additional 8 to 10 minutes or until it turns the colour of maple syrup. Once it is just about to turn this colour take it from the heat because it will continue to hold the heat from the pan and will burn if not careful. If you burn the sugar you can use it to colour drab looking gravy. Store this in a heat resistant jar and will harden left to stand. To return it to a remelted state place the jar in hot water until this happens. Like I said above maple syrup is good if not better,

Now the good part


1 tablespoon of gelatine in ¼ cup of water

Prepare ¾ cup of the caramel or ½ a cup of Maple syrup. When the syrup is slightly cool put it or the maple syrup in the top of a double boiler with 1 cup of hot milk

¼ cup of sugar and ¼ teaspoon of salt. Stir over boiling water until all is dissolved. Have 3 egg yolks well beaten in a bowl and place 1/3rd of the mixture from the double boiler over them will whisking the eggs. This is to ensure you do not make sweet scrambles eggs. Return all of this back to the double boiler and cook it until the mixture a spoon heavily. Now add the soaked gelatine to it and blend it well until it is totally dissolved. Cool it and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla or 1 tablespoon of rum.

Whip and fold in 1 cup of whipping cream. Place all of this into a wet mould and chill for at least 12 hours if you plan on unmoulding it. If you wish to use it to fill cream puffs of place between cake slices you must first thin it out a bit. You can do this with a whisk and a few more oz’s of rum or add just ½ teaspoon of gelatine to the mix. It will not set up and will remain spread -able.

The Complete Cook Book turns 3

I am writing one as well.

The Complete Book

WOW – I cannot believe that 3 years ago on the 14th of April I started this here little blog.  It has been such a fun 3 years and I am looking forward to the next 3.

It wouldn’t be anything though without all of you who take the time to pop in and say hi and follow along.   I have made some wonderful friends the past 3 years and I look forward to the day that I can meet some of you in person.  All I need now is an unlimited supply of cash and I can start travelling the world to meet you all. 🙂

I know my focus the past year hasn’t just been on food but incorporating my new found love; photography and my fur babies and our life here at Sundays River so I should possibly rethink my blog name or possibly amend the…

Recipe Find! Chocolate Chip Cookies from Kelseys Apple A Day

SOme times I get the lazy bug as well

Oh, Courtney

As someone that loves to bake and think up new and interesting recipes… there are times where I don’t want to make my same ol’ recipe and am far too lazy to think of a new one. These are the moments I check out my Pinterest boards and bake someone else’s great recipe! I’ve come across some amazing and creative ideas on Pinterest, anyone that doesn’t have an account, I highly recommend it.

On this particular afternoon, I just wanted some chocolate chip cookies. I looked through the rows and rows of what looked like good cookie recipes, but one definitely caught my eye. With a caption like “The fluffiest, chewiest, most amazing chocolate chip cookies–all thanks to a very surprising ingredient!” I knew it had to be good. I was directed to the great blog of Kelseys Apple A Day on Blogspot.

Definitely check out Kelseys Best-Ever Chewy Chocolate…
