Recipe: Black Pepper Roasted Chicken with Stuffing (credit to Panasonic Singapore)

Hmmm…. Buying a Turkey is too expensive and a hassle to prepare it. Well you can consider Roasted Chicken instead. Cheaper and value for money.

Preparation for roast chicken @omysg #panasoniccookingsg #christmas @panasonicsg

The Chicken has to be marinated 1 day before roasting. This is to ensure great taste for the chicken.

Ingredients:
1.4 kg chicken
1 ¾ tsp salt
1½ tbsp black pepper
½ tsp sugar
1 tsp dark soya sauce
1 tsp light soya sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp ginger juice (need to grate the ginger slices to get the ginger juice)
Honey (use for glazing)
Some oil and sesame oil for brushing

I never heard people used steam from an oven for making a chocolate cake. This sounded interesting. This Recipe inspired by Diana Gale (http://thedomesticgoddesswannabe.com/), winner of Singapore Blog Awards Best Cooking Blog 2014 and 2015

Ingredients:
180g butter (room temperature)
180g castor sugar
200g full cream evaporated milk
2 eggs (beaten with fork)
100g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp vanillin (Vanilla powder)
2 tbsp rum (optional)
8” round removable cake tin lined with baking paper (or springform cake tin)

 

For the ganache:
80ml milk
200g semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method:
1. Place butter, sugar and milk in a casserole, cook on medium power for 5 mins, stir-in-between. Stir and leave to cool for about 10-13 mins.
2. Add beaten eggs and rum into the butter mixture.
3. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and vanillin into a large mixing bowl.
4. Pour butter mixture into the dry ingredients.
5. Stir until the mixture is well mixed.
6. Pour mixture into a lined baking tin.
7. Lift the baking tin about 10cm off the table top and drop it onto the table top to remove the larger bubbles. Repeat twice more.
8. Set to steam mode # 2 for 55 mins or until an inserted skewer emerges cleanly.
9. Cool cake completely in the baking tin before removing.
10. To make the chocolate ganache, heat milk in a medium casserole on high power for 50 secs. (Heat in microwave oven)
11. Stir in chocolate chips, cook on high power 2 ½ mins., stir-in-between.
12. Stir chocolate mixture till smooth and well mix, pour over cake and spread with spatula to cover the whole cake.
13. Chill the cake before serving.

Have to set the timer twice as the programme only allows steaming cake up to 30minutes and add water to allow Panansonic oven to provide the steam for the cake.

After steaming the cake… #panasoniccookingsg @omysg

After 55 minutes of steaming. Time to cool down and prepare for the chocolate coating for the steam cake.

Panasonic Microwave oven (shown below) is used for melting of chocolate chips for the coating.

Veggie Life products are freshly grown and packed in Panasonic Singapore Factory. Veggie Life has to be consumed within a week. If you do not intend to eat it immediately, it is better to store it in the refrigerator.

It is Time to get my hands busy and dirty for my Christmafeast preparation with these wonderful tips. Time management is very important as we do not wish to waste so much time (more than 6 hours) to cook a few dishes. I even spent 1 hour cooking jelly for Christmadespite it is one of the more simpler dishes.

It features 6 different neighbourhoods namely, Seletar Camp, Lorong Buangkok, Macpherson, People’s Park Chinatown, Queentown and Pulau Ubin.

Many things and buildings have to make way for redevelopment purposes. It is difficult to part them and its rich history. With an 
aim to capture and preserve history as it is unfolding, Parting Glances brings Singapore’s delicate balancing act of forging the future while preserving the past to centre stage through these 24 photos and the accompanying launch of a hardcover book with the same title.

Do visit the exhibition soon. For more details, please visit http://golibrary.nlb.gov.sg/Exhibitions/48672/Parting_Glances__SIngapore_s_Evolving_Spaces.aspx
