Rustic Bread

Rustic Crusty Bread Recipe {With Tutorial} | Mel's Kitchen Cafe

For this lab on the day, first thing we did was waking up the yeasts with bath temperature water. In a large bowl I mixed sifted flour, salt and yeast and made a dough in a bowl. We covered the bowl with a dish towel before we leave. The next day it was in the oven already when I walked into a class. It tasted very. it was chewy and crunch outside but soft inside, I really liked it. I’m not sure if I will make this again because it takes a little long time and we don’t have yeast at home.

Eggs Your way

For this lab I made poached eggs so I can practice for next when I’m making my sandwich. I simmered the water with some vinegar. While the pot is simmering I cooked the bacon so I can serve it with the egg. I cooked bacon for 7minutes and turned the heat off so it can still be warm. When the bacon is done and water is simmering I gently put the egg in the pan and let it cook. I flipped the egg half way through and took it out. The egg was very soft and it went well with the bread and bacon with hollandaise sauce. I never made this type of egg, I only made tried or scrambled, but I should make poached egg sometimes.

Fruit Skillet Cake

This lab was a test and I made same mistake as last time, I used medium cast iron frying instead of small cast iron frying pan. I started the lab off by whisking the dry ingredients flour, cinnamon, baking power/soda and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl I mixed butter and brown sugar until pale and fluffy and added egg later. When the wet ingredient is done I pour the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient and mixed. I grease the pan and put some flour on it so the cake doesn’t stick on the pan. I poured the batter in the pan and pears on top of the batter, sprinkled cinnamon and salt on top. I baked them for 40 minutes and cooled it for 5 minutes. The pear skillet cake was actually tasty than I thought and I might want to make it again with other fruits.

Veggie Frittata

This lab didn’t go well because we used medium cast iron frying pan instead of small so the frittata looks thin. We started the lab by slicing the potato and microwave it for a minute. Then we prepped our veggies and sauted. We added onions first and let it cook for a bit and added the mushrooms. When it finished saute we set this aside and whisked an egg, salt, and pepper and poured in the pan. We added the potato on the bottom, mushroom on top of egg and potato and tomato on top. We shred the cheese and sprinkled on the very top. We placed the pan in the oven and broiled for 2 minutes. Even the frittata wasn’t think as usual it tasted really good and I’m willing to make this again. It wasn’t that hard to make and it is delicious.


During this lab we were to use the waffle iron grill to make waffles. The waffle was easy to make we just had to mix all the dry ingredients like flours, sugar, baking powder and little bit of salt. And also wet ingredients like egg and milk and combine those two ingredients together and put them into the waffle iron grill, let it bake for 5 minutes. While waffle is getting ready we washed our dishes first and ate the waffles with the maple syrup. The waffle was soft and I like the maple syrup. I would not make this again because we don’t have a waffle iron grill at home.

Smoothie bowl & Granola

For this lab we have to make 2 things, which was smoothie and granola. We started off by making the granola first. We mixed the seeds and other dried fruits with syrup and put in on a cookie sheet to put them into an oven. While granola is in the oven. We got our fruits for the smoothie and put them in the mixer with some milk. I put the smoothie into a bowl and decorated with more fruits. The smoothie bowl was good and I will probably make only smoothie again.
