salmon head is my favourite, but the style they cook it kinda make this less delicious, tasted pan fried more than salt grilled

Recipe taken from:

Pumpkin waffle from Confessions of a City Eater

Mark Bittman Overnight Waffle from BigOven

Chocolate Waffle from Confessions of a City Eater

For some reason, like the bitman overnight waffle better, could be I used butter+canola mixture for it whereas using canola only for the pumpkin waffle. Also, pumpkin was my first attempt in waffle making and the initial ones tasted very eggy as I undercook them and took them out while not crispy yet.

3-Waffle-Recipe1

Pumpkin Waffle recipe

3-Waffle-Recipe2

egg white, pumpkin+milk etc mixture, flour mixture

3-Waffle-Recipe3

all mixed, i beaten the egg white till stiff peak stage making it very hard to be fully combined into the pumpkin and flour mixture resulting in egg white pockets as seen above.

3-Waffle-Recipe4

making pumpkin waffle

3-Waffle-Recipe5

very eggy as i underfilled and under-cook the above, although it look very browned above

3-Waffle-Recipe6

nicer ones towards the end whereby i baked the waffle till there is no more steam from the waffle machine. Although very light and quite nice, i find this must be eaten with syrup or other condiments, too plain to be eaten by itself

3-Waffle-Recipe7

Overnight waffle recipe using yeast instead of baking powder. Have to be left overnight for the yeast to fully work itself in the batter.

3-Waffle-Recipe8

after mixed

3-Waffle-Recipe9

next day, the batter have risen a bit as compared to above pic, mix egg yolk into the mixture

3-Waffle-Recipe10

beat egg white till soft peak

3-Waffle-Recipe11

mixed

3-Waffle-Recipe12

i find it alike to belgian waffle, rich with buttery taste.

3-Waffle-Recipe13

Mark bittman overnight waffle looking good above

3-Waffle-Recipe14

Chocolate waffle is the last i am going to experiment on this waffle saga

3-Waffle-Recipe15

making the waffle using Cosway Empress waffle machine

3-Waffle-Recipe16

My least favourite, tasted so so and the texture is kinda dense.

Among all of the above, the pumpkin is the lightest, with bittman’s overnight waffle coming on second with its rich buttery taste, chocolate i find is the most dense.

Recipe taken  from smitten kitchen.

Yummy sugary cinnamon smell whiff through whole house while the cake was baked for 1 hour 20 mins at around 165 Celsius, last 20 mins with foil on top of cake as it was browning fast.

Overall, i prefer this cake more than Apple Pie Cake. Easier to make with no pie pastry resting period needed etc

Apple-Cake1

Amount: 385g flour, 185g oil, 200g sugar and 63g orange juice

Apple-Cake2

Ingredients, the apple are mixed cinnamon and sugar

Apple-Cake3

Layering apple and cake batter

Apple-Cake4

Finished product. Not really obvious here, but i find this cake rises surprisingly well despite being heavy cake with apple and all

Apple-Cake5

Looks yummy eh

Apple-Cake6

Another view of the cake

Apple-Cake7

Cross section.

Overall, this cake is not bad, might make this again some day. Same as apple pie cake, i find the apple cake make the cake slightly wetter the next day, but still acceptable

Recipe taken from The Way The Cookie Crumbles. (Recipe from Dorie’s Greenspan)

Made this using 8 small red delicious apple + 2 large South African green apple. But turn out to be too much apples, i think using 8 small apples is enough.

Personally, I don’t find it that good, perhaps it is really good when eaten warm, it can get slightly wet and soggy when completely cooled the next day.

Total baking time is 80 minutes, there are bubbles from the apple through slits on the pastry 60 minutes into baking.

Apple-Pie-Cake1

Pie pastry which is quite soft, has to be rested around 2 hours (up to 3 days) in fridge

Apple-Pie-Cake2

Assembled apple pie cake, it was slightly difficult to assemble as the pastry is quite soft, as seen to be quite messy in pic above, i was literally pinching the dough into side of pan. Remember to cut few slits to let steam to escape

Apple-Pie-Cake3

leftovers apples

Apple-Pie-Cake4

Finished product

Apple-Pie-Cake5

Apple-Pie-Cake6

I used 230g butter, reduced sugar to around 100g, flour used was about 410g
