This week I made chocolate lava cake! This recipe wasn’t hard but it was very important to follow the product standards. The product standards for this were to have a gooey center and a cooked outside. The safety for tsi recipe was oven safety. I started by melting my chocolate in the microwave with margarine. I took it out after 20 seconds and repeated until it was fully melted. Then I beat the eggs with the sugar until it was fluffy. I combined the chocolate and eggs together and sifted the flour in. The hardest part for me was getting rid of the little flour chunks. The recipe said not to over mix so in the end I did have a few bits of flour. I cooked it for 12 minuets. It tasted really rich and would also be good served with a raspberry coulis or vanilla ice-cream. The center was gooey, but next time I would cook it for a bit longer. The cake did rise in the oven but it deflated once it started to cool. I would give this recipe a 4/5 because it was decadent and delicious but it was cooked a bit too much and the recipe was clear and easy to follow. I would give this a 2/5 for nutrition because it’s a treat. I want to make this again soon.
Pineapple delight is a dessert that I had never heard of and never eaten before. It turned out being surprisingly simple to make. We started with a graham cracker crust which I could have just eaten by itself. I made sure to pack it down firmly so that it would stay together. We baked it and after it cooled we added a custard like mixture on top that was very sweet. We chilled it again and made whipped cream with pineapple in it for the topping. We had to chill it over night so I ate it for a snack in foods the next day. I was very refreshing but quite rich so I could only eat a small amount at a time. It was very successful and I would make it again if I was in the mood for something quick and tasty. I forgot to take a picture because I was too excited to eat my dessert.
