Ricotta Pancakes

0 comments

Quick post today!

I'm a huge fan of pancakes, but besides the one time I made chocolate pancakes, I've always stuck to the same trusty pancake recipe whenever I whip up a batch for brekky. Ever since my trip to Japan, where pancakes come in all shapes, sizes and flavours, I've been a little obsessed over pancakes and thought I'd start experiemting with some other recipes.

Seeing as I had half a tub of ricotta left in the fridge, I thought I'd try these famous ricotta hotcakes that people have been raving about for years. Perhaps I had my hopes too high, but to be very honest, I wasn't too impressed. Nevertheless, they're light and fluffy and quite pleasant to have- although I probably will be experimenting with other pancake recipes next time!

Yasaka Ramen, Town Hall

1 comments

I haven't been doing many restaurant reviews lately and if I'm being honest, it's because I've been really lazy with taking photos and write ups. But if there's one thing that's worth writing about it's ramen- so when our latest ramen cravings kicked in and brought us to Yasaka Ramen, I made sure I lugged that camera along with me!

Pistachio Mousse Cake

0 comments
If you asked me about cake fails, the first one that comes to mind would be the first chocolate cake I ever made where everything that could have gone wrong pretty much did. We all have to start from somewhere don't we?.


The second, more recent, one that comes to mind would be my first attempt at the pistachio mousse cake. Sure I've burnt a fair amount of cakes and cookies, curdled more custards than I should, made some very odd shaped cakes here and there and regularly bake things that go straight into the bin. But nothing is quite as memorable as the impressive looking, perfectly moulded pistachio mousse cake that five minutes after removing the mould, slowly drooped into a puddle of pudding. It was my first time using sheet gelatin you see- and I'd heated it too much so that it no longer set the mousse like it was supposed to.

Oops.
