Cooking at Home:Crepes

I chose to make crepes. They were sweet, buttery, soft and had a sweet smell. I would make these again but for next time I would add less Nutella in the center because they were too sweet for most of my family and I would also add something on top of the whipped cream but I didn’t have anything to add on top. A problem that I had while making them was that the butter wasn’t at room temperature when I mixed it with the rest of the ingredients so the batter turned out clumpy. To fix this problem I put the bowl on top of the stove and heated it a bit to melt the butter and then I went ahead and mixed it all together. My greatest success when making this dish was that I added butter which gave the crepes a better taste. The thing I am most proud about is that they cooked just right.

Cooking at Home:Scones

I decided to make scones. They were soft, buttery and had a slightly sweet smell. They cooked to a golden brown colour. I would make this dish again and something I would change for next time is to make them less thin. I flattened them too much before putting them in the oven. A problem that I had was that the scones took a long to cook. I just kept putting them back into the oven to fully cook them. My greatest success was the taste. My family seemed to like them. I am most proud at the fact that I made them without anyone’s help.

Cooking at Home

I made vanilla cupcakes for this lab. I used a recipe that I had all the ingredients for. The cupcakes were soft and not dry. The smell was sweet but not overpowering. They tasted good but I would add more vanilla next time for more flavour. A I problem was not having enough batter for everyone to have cupcakes. To fix this, I doubled the recipe. The greatest success with these cupcakes was the icing because my family seemed to enjoy it.
