ROCK CAKES

Rock Cakes Eggless  Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


It has been more than 2 decades  I have eaten these Rock Cakes, made them in my Home Economics class.   Using basic ingredients of butter, sugar, flour and raisin you can transform these into your favorite by adding chocolate chips,  other dried fruit, nuts, spices or zest  but  I prefer to stick to the basic recipe

In the past we used the rubbing in method but now I change the way you prepare these  Rock Cakes by  mixing  the  melted butter in the dough.

My house was filled with fantastic aroma while baking these  little treats.  They are crunchy outside but soft inside

FRUIT COCKTAIL PUDDING

Fruit Cocktail Pudding


My son has  been bugging  me to  prepare   this super easy Fruit Cocktail Pudding made with agar agar powder and canned fruit cocktail.

Some might like to make use of the sugar  syrup after draining the fruit cocktail  but prefer to throw it away. Make sure the water and sugar syrup combined do not exceed 5 cups. .

To jazz it up, added a few drops of  yellow food coloring.  This step is required if you choose colorless agar agar powder.  You can use any flavor,/color/fruit you prefer. I just happened to have fruit cocktail on hand.

After the agar agar powder has been boiled, pour this mixture into small mold or into one large bowl/container.

If you want something that tastes great and not fattening, this Fruit Cocktail is for you!

Was thinking about what to make for tea time treat then my kid suggested to try this colorful and pleasing M&M Cookies Slices.

He makes a right choice.  It turned out fantastic!   These  bound to be big hit with kids and adult alike.   My visitors are very pleased too, they even  ask me for the recipe.

Since I love my slices to be not so sweet, I had used only 3/4 cup of brown sugar but you can add more if want it sweeter.

These  M&M Cookies Slices  are  super  quick to prepare, no mixer required and using  only one bowl so you save your time washing up so many dishes.

BROKEN GLASS JELLY

Broken Glass Jelly with agar agar powder



A very blessed Eid  to  you and family,  to those celebrating.  May you be showered with joy and happiness!

This year am not making any heavy preparation since I had just recovered from my illness.  I picked up  agar agar powder to prepare this Broken Glass Jelly.

This is the simplest dessert you can make without much effort but still looks terrific.  What I did was mixing the agar agar powder with sugar in a deep pot  until the  agar agar is dissolved.  Bring to boil  over low heat, stirring  all the time.

And now this is a fun part.  Divide into 4 parts.  Mix 3 parts with your favorite color and leave the balance as it is.  Let them set , now you can cut the colored parts into cubes and place them in a  9 in tray.  Mix them altogether.

Heat the non colored part over low heat, add  milk.  Remove from heat, pour this mixture over the tray filled with colored cubes.  Cool slightly, place the tray in a refrigerator to set fully.
