Hey! Welcome to Little Chef’s Apron! Today, we will be making a dessert in disguise. If you thought that the above picture is a breakfast of eggs, bacon and bread, do comment below.
This had been on my list for a very long time. I was really happy to see that whatever I had thought was right there, on the plate.
Now, the egg white is cardamom pudding and whipped cream, the yolk is the same but with food colour. The bacon is cranberry crepe wafers, and the bread is a rose, cardamom sponge cake.
Let us see how to make it!
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup curd
a few strands of saffron
1 tsp cardamom powder
2 tbsp rose water
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
Milk as required
For crepe wafers:
2 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp flour
a pinch of baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp cranberry essence
3 tbsp cornflour
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp cardamom
1/4 cup whipped cream( I am using powdered)
A pinch of yellow food colour
First, whisk together oil and sugar to incorporate air into this cake batter.
Then, add the curd, cardamom, saffron and rose water. Mix it well until combined completely.
Add the flour, baking powder and soda and there is no need to sieve in this batter as there are other elements on the plate as well.
Pour it in a greased square tin and bake at 180 degree C for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven.
Then, in a bowl add sugar and flour with baking powder and soda. Then, add oil, cranberry essence and milk. Mix it all together and make a flowy and runny batter.
Place a pan on low heat and immediately add two tbsp of this batter. Take a silicone brush and spread the batter evenly on the pan on low heat.
Let it cook for a minute or two and then flip. Take it out and cut into uneven, long shapes. While hot, bake in the oven, at 200 degree C for 5 minutes.
Then, add corn flour to a pan and whisk well with the milk. Switch on the flame and cook until it thickens well. Also add cardamom of flavor. Once thickened, place it in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Then, add the whipped cream to this mixture. De mold the cake and cut in half to resemble a piece of bread. On a plate suited for breakfast, place the cake.
Then, on top add the pudding such that a few of it touches the plate and the cake. In the leftover, add the food colour and resembling the yolk of the egg, add 1 spoon of it.
Then, sprinkle cardamom powder over this to give a touch of pepper. Then place the crepe wafers in the side and serve! I hope you guys liked this idea and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Question of the day!
