I have lived in many countries – the United States, Finland, and now Taiwan, and each country has its own food. But the topic of food has not ever been covered in my blog. What a shame! Now it is time to write a few words on what I eat.
I like to cook. I am not saying I am particularly good at it, but this is anyway somewhat different activity, other than just sitting in the office in front of computer screen. This is why I like it.
Another passion of mine is gadgets, and cooking gadgets in particular. I think that technology is an important component of cooking, even though cooking is probably more art than technology. Anyway, enough for an introduction, I already hear rumbling in my stomach, so lets get to food.
It is pretty easy to make cakes. You will need to buy a package of cake flour in the nearest supermarket, add egg and water, and off you go:
You will need toaster as well. These machines are very popular in Taiwan. Put in the cakes for approximately one hour.
As a result, you’ll get this. Does it look good?
These cakes taste certainly better than what you can get in a shop. You will like its crispy surface and soft chewy inner parts. The only problem with this recipe is that it takes a lot of time to cook it. So I usually do it in the evening when I come back from work. But in the morning I need some radical way of cooking, it should be fast! Waffle machine comes to rescue. This kind of machine is more difficult to find in shops, but I found it in RT-mart. Also you will need a pack of waffle flour (not the same as cake flour) which you can get in local supermarket or in SOGO store. Put an egg for a better taste.
It takes only 3 minutes to bake the waffles!
And of course you will need chocolate spread after the waffles are ready!
So, that’s the end of introduction on what I eat. I like bakery and I like to bake things. It does not take long and generates good results.
