The Baker App: The Only App You’ll Need


Nowadays, many bakers use their phones as a tool in the kitchen, and it’s gotten to the point where it’s becoming indispensible. Just this month, celebrity chef Tyler Florence has gone around saying that his Blackberry Passport is the key to his success. Collaborative Cooking has also invented a Cooking Machine that lets chefs prepare meals by controlling the machine with their phones! We could all be enjoying these amazing technological advancements in the future, but we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves. 

Right now, that smartphone in your hand could still do more than serve as a tool for taking photographs of your delicious creations. Gaming Realms, owners and operators of Spin Genie, have stated that “There were an estimated 1 billion Smartphone users at the end of 2012, representing 17% of total mobile users”. This number has risen to nearly 1.75 billion, prompting developers to create some excellent apps for use in the kitchen. The Baker App is one such app, delivering exactly what it advertises: “Beautifully designed, with practicality in mind, it is created by people with a passion for serious baking. Basing everything on the Bakers’ Percentage format that any good baker swears by, it can be used in any type of kitchen, no matter how busy or messy, and is adaptable to the needs of anyone from a beginner to a master.”

 

The app is truly versatile, and it can be used by just about anyone in the world. The app lets users create and save recipes in measurements they like, download premade recipes from some of the world’s greatest chefs, and adjust recipes to make room for specialized diets. If you’ve ever found yourself having to scale down large-quantity recipes for home use, this is the app for you.

Most importantly, this app is completely free, “because everyone should be free to bake.” Do you use any other apps when you bake?

                                              Homemade French Toast with Kiwi Jam


                                              Time flies, today is 13th day of my kiwi challenge. I'm using combination of my previous recipe - Homemade Kiwi Jam with this simple self made french toast at home.

                                              Do you know about Kiwi that can control the weight? The reason being is  Kiwi’s low glycemic index and high fiber content means it will not create a strong insulin rush like other fruit with high sugar contents — so the body will not respond by storing fat. Hence this is the best reason to use these fruits to substitute any whip cream as french toast toppings.

                                              This is extremely easy recipe to follow. Prepare this for your love one during weekend breakfast or brunch, he or she will be totally surprised and impressed. Enjoy!

                                              Homemade Kiwi Jam


                                              Today is 13th day of Kiwi Challenge day. Since I have quite a lot of super ripe kiwifruits, I am making them into kiwi jam for storage rather then let them rotten. This is relatively easy to make jam, 4 ingredients and preparation time is less than 30 minutes.


                                              It is always enjoyable to make your own jam as you can control its sweetness level, as well as free of any artificial flavoring or preservative in it. Hope after you've read this post, you are able to start straight away to make your own kiwi jam too. Enjoy your weekend.



                                              Here is my recipe of Homemade Kiwifruits jam

                                              Ingredients
                                              5 Zespri super ripe green Kiwifruits
                                              1 cup caster sugar
                                              1/4 cup of lemon juice
                                              2 tsp jelly powder

                                              Method
                                              1. Peel kiwifruits and mashed it with fork into puree. If may also use blender to blend into puree, but remember do not over crush the kiwi seed as you will feel tart taste.
                                              2. Sprinkle and mix with caster sugar and lemon juice.
                                              3. Pour the mixture onto the hot pot and cook until the liquid dry out.
                                              4. Approximately cook for 20 minutes using medium heat, sprinkle the jelly powder on it.
                                              5. Until you see the jam look mixture, remove from heat and let it cold down in another seperate clean bowl.
                                              6. Once cold, keep the jam in the sterilized jam botol and refrigerate it.

                                              Kiwi Ball Dessert


                                              12th day of the Kiwi Challenge, today's topic is "Time to get creative". Inspired by the goodness of Zespri Green Kiwifruit, I spice up my Friday using kiwifruit to create mini Kiwi Ball dessert.

                                              Follow by my yesterday post on Homemade Kiwi Sushi which is normal savory sushi, this inspired me to make them into sweet dessert that going to give you a kick after the meals.



                                              I serve them with fresh raspberries for the whole combination. It brings the vivid colour for your eyes first, and indeed they are delicious too. The method in making these Kiwi ball are same when the traditional making the savoury sushi but the only difference are some of the ingredients are totally varies. What it bring the Japanese rice comes together is the coconut milk. If you could not find the fresh coconut milk from your country, you can always substitute them with UHT coconut cream or heavy whip cream.

                                                Here is my Hankerie's recipe on my homemade Kiwi Ball Dessert

                                                Ingredients

                                                For sushi rice,

                                                                      Homemade Kiwi Sushi


                                                                      Three-quarters of the Kiwi Challenge. Today is 11th day to show off the knife skill. To me, the most difficult part to showcase how good is your knife skill is cutting the fragile kiwifruits onto sushi, it must be even thinner than a sashimi.  

                                                                      Follow on from my previous post on Kiwi Frankenstein, I've some more new idea in making this little brown hairy fruits into cutie animal. I myself also not too sure what am I trying to do, just thinking of something looks cute.


                                                                      Started to test my knife skill since last week, by cutting plenty of times on the kiwifruits, from cutting into cubes, slices, modelling kiwifruits into cutie animal. Gosh, I have cut more than 22 green kiwifruits since last week. Today, finally make these homemade kiwi sushi with the combination of sashimi, omelette and tobiko. This is my 2nd time in making sushi at home, after my first time making sushi in New Zealand in year 2008. Indeed been a while.

                                                                      1st sushi that I've made today is kiwi salmon sashimi. The green kiwifruit slice needs to be thinner than fresh sashimi as I do not want it over-powering than the sashimi taste. Believe it or not, the crunch and the tangy fruity smell bring your taste to the next level incredibly.



                                                                      The 2nd sushi that I'm making is Tamago Yaki Kiwi Sushi Omelette, in how to make the omelette, I refer to this recipe. This relatively the sweetest sushi among these 3 types of sushi that I've made.


                                                                      The 3rd sushi that I am going to make is Sushi Kiwi Tobiko. Tobiko is the tiny, orange, pearl-like stuff you find on sushi rolls. It's actually flying fish roe, which technically makes it a caviar (albeit less expensive than its sturgeon cousin). Tobiko adds crunchy texture and salty taste to the dish, not to mention artistic flair. In its natural state, however, it is not very flavorful. Hence, I've added 3 kiwifruits on top of it.

                                                                        Here is my Hankerie's recipe on my homemade kiwi Sushi

                                                                                  Method

                                                                                    1. Cook the Japanese rice in rice cooker.
                                                                                    2. After rice cooked, in another pot, add the rice and water, quickly bring it to the boil and then simmer, covered, cooking for 10 minutes until water is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Be careful not to burn the rice
                                                                                    3. Meanwhile, combine the salt, vinegar and sugar in a small bowl
                                                                                    4. Remove from the heat, leaving the rice to rest, covered for another 10 minutes
                                                                                    5. Add the rice to a wooden bowl, mix to help it cool down. When cool, gently add the vinegar mixture and mix to combine.
                                                                                    6. Use the rice at room temperature.
                                                                                    7. On top of the bamboo rolling mat, place a seaweed sheet (you may cut these into halves, however it will require less filling)
                                                                                    8. Wet your hands, and scope small section of the rice in your palm (around a 1/4 of a cup); and shape into an oblong
                                                                                    9. Place the rice onto the seaweed sheet, gently spread the rice evenly to each side; ensuring  leave an inch gap on the side you are rolling towards, add fillings as you wish.
                                                                                    10. Folding the bamboo mat (on the side closest to you); gently roll as tight as possible (if your seaweed is not sticking, dab the uncovered end with water). 
                                                                                    11. Decorate with green kiwifruit slice.

                                                                                                Day 10: Doing the things that I love the most with my favourite kiwifruits. After my long working day today, decided to bake something extremely fast. I was using my opera cake (leftover = that those trim over from the side), in order to avoid any wastage, I melted them to become my butter of my new creation - mini kiwi cupcakes. Both Kiwi and chocolate chips are my hero for this cake.


                                                                                                When I started to use kiwifruits in my bakes previously, I always discover that these green kiwifruits will definitely turn even more sourish after bake. Hence, they are 2 best ways to overcome, first is that only mix in the green kiwi until the end of the baking process (usually does not work for baked cakes, as the cakes will start to shape after the first 5 minutes in oven). 2nd is to mix them with something sweet in the cake. And today, chocolate chip is my queen for this cupcake.

                                                                                                  Here is my Hankerie's recipe on my homemade Mini Kiwi Cupcakes (bake in 15 min)

                                                                                                    Day 10 of Kiwi Challenge today. Mission today is to share about my favourite moment with these little brown hairy fruits. Of course, my favourite + passion = baking with them. Today, I made something different, the dessert that absolutely look like them, but also their taste also quite similiar. They are kiwi mochi,

                                                                                                    According to Fugetso-do, "Mochi is a Japanese confection, found usually in the shape of a small, round rice cake which can be eaten with condiments such as kinako (roastedsoy bean flour), manju (sweet red bean paste), soy sauce dip, and seaweed." I improvised them into kiwi mochi.


                                                                                                    Believe me, all you see from my mochi photo here, all are edible. The whole combination of the taste and texture simply fantastic. All these are steamed rather than bake. Enjoy the pretty dessert with your eyes first. Before cutting the mochi, I've tried to roll the shape that look like the real physical kiwifruits first.


                                                                                                    For this recipe, please wait for my publish e-books later. I will announce once done.

                                                                                                    Since today's mission is making dessert, hence I make this mini kiwi Popsicle that is quite similiar to my previous Kiwi Popsicle. Last year, I combined two types of kiwis which are gold and green kiwifruits. This round, I only make the green kiwi popsicle. This is the usefulness of those overripe kiwifruits to be my hero for this dish.

                                                                                                    Take one or more ripe kiwi, add honey and water in a blender. Then pour in molds. If the kiwifruit is overly ripe, you can just use the fork to mash it rather than blender, as we need to avoid kiwi seed from broken down too much.

                                                                                                    The green kiwi recipe can be used with many other fruits, as long as the volume of fruit stays relatively similar — and feel free to add more honey if the kiwi is too sour.


                                                                                                    Here is my Hankerie's recipe on my homemade Mini Kiwi Popsicle for Party

                                                                                                    Ingredients
                                                                                                    1. 1 TBSP Manuka Honey
                                                                                                    2. 1/3 cup warm water
                                                                                                    3. 2 green ripe Kiwis
                                                                                                    4. Few wooden ice cream sticks
                                                                                                    Method
                                                                                                    1. Dissolve manuka honey  in warm water; pour into blender pitcher. Add fresh green kiwi pieces into blender; blend into puree but do not overly blend.
                                                                                                    2. Pour green kiwi mixture into mini molds to about 1/3 inch from the top.
                                                                                                    3. Put the wooden ice cream stick in the middle for easier handling later while serving. You can opt this out if you want your guest to enjoy this using their spoon.
                                                                                                    4. Freeze until completely solid, about 6 hours.

                                                                                                                      Kiwi & Strawberry Cream Puff


                                                                                                                      2nd dessert of my day is my favourite Kiwi & Strawberry Cream Puff. These cream puffs attempt to capture the essence of the kiwi fruit and serve them in a way that is more commensurate with our modern palates: add some custard cream and sugar and stuff them in a light and buttery pastry.  To add on more colour, I've added strawberries in it this round.

                                                                                                                        Here is my Hankerie's recipe on my homemade Kiwi & Strawberry Cream Puff

                                                                                                                        2. 1 Zespri green kiwi

                                                                                                                        Method
                                                                                                                        1. Preheat oven to 180C. Sift flour and salt into a bowl.  Place water and butter in a saucepan and heat until melted.  Next, raise heat until the mixture boils and them remove from heat.  Add the flour and beat quickly until you have cohesive mixture (be sure not to overbeat or the mixture will become oily).  Leave the mixture to cool slightly.
                                                                                                                        2. Slowly add the beaten eggs a little bit at a time until the mixture is thick and shiny (you probably won’t need all of the egg).  Place in a pastry bag.
                                                                                                                        3. Dampen two parchment lined baking sheets with cold water. Pipe ping-pong ball sized onto the paper put some almond as toppings and bake immediately until choux is lightly browned (about 15-25 minutes). Set aside to cool.
                                                                                                                        4. Spoon custard cream into a pastry bag.
                                                                                                                        5. Punch a hole in the choux or cut into half and fill choux with cream using pastry bag. Garnish with green kiwi cut and strawberries. dust with icing sugar; serve and enjoy!

                                                                                                                          Today is 9th day of Kiwi Challenge day and absolutely is my favourite day as it is DESSERT theme. Gosh, I wanna show a lot of my masterpiece on my kiwi Dessert today! Since I'm making a lot of dessert today, im going to make kiwi coulis to serve my dessert.

                                                                                                                          According to Wikipedia, a coulis (/kuːˈliː/ koo-LEE; French, from Old French couleis, from Vulgar Latin cōlāticus, from Latin cōlātus, past participle of cōlāre, to strain) is a form of thick sauce made from puréed and strained vegetables or fruits.

                                                                                                                          It may sound fancy, but a coulis is actually easy to make. These intense fruity sauces are ideal to pair with desserts or drizzle over your favourite ice cream. My hero of today is the green tangy sourish kiwifruits. Amazingly simple to make, kiwi coulis takes so many desserts to another level for an incomparable treat. 


                                                                                                                          Here is my Hankerie's recipe on this Homemade Kiwifruits coulis for Dessert

                                                                                                                          Ingredients
                                                                                                                          1 Zespri super ripe green Kiwifruits

                                                                                                                          2 scope of vanilla ice cream
                                                                                                                          Few fresh mangoes (cut into cubes)

                                                                                                                          Method
                                                                                                                          1. Peel kiwifruits and mashed it with fork into puree. If may also use blender to blend into puree, but remember do not over crush the kiwi seed as you will feel tart taste.
                                                                                                                          2. Sprinkle and mix with caster sugar.

                                                                                                                          Healthy & Colourful Yogurt Parfait


                                                                                                                          Day 8 of Zespri Kiwi Challenge, I am making a healthy and colourful yogurt Parfait to cure the bloatness over the weekend. Try this breakfast treat that layers fresh kiwifruits, raspberries, mangoes, creamy yogurt and crunchy corn flakes.

                                                                                                                          In French, Parfait means "Perfect". It is a kind of layered frozen dessert serving in tall glass, and I serve them in my long champagne glass.

                                                                                                                          Kiwis are filled with essential vitamins, too! One medium kiwi packs 5 percent of the daily recommended amount of folate and 117 percent of daily vitamin C. Plus, this tangy fruit provides 38 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K, a nutrient often missing from people’s diets that is essential for bodily functions like normal blood clotting. Well, that's quite surprising.

                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                          Anyway, this is such a simple parfait to make, and it’s so perfect for breakfast, or even as a snack or dessert after dinner. Now if you don’t find it’s sweet enough for you, you can add some honey over the yogurt. 

                                                                                                                          Here is my Hankerie's recipe on this Homemade Healthy & Colourful Yogurt Parfait
