Did You Know – 11/27/2017

 

  1. German chocolate cake is named after a guy named Sam German, not the country.

 

2. The creature that kills the most people every year isn’t snakes, sharks, or even other humans–it’s the mosquito.

 

3. The last letter added to the English alphabet wasn’t Z–it was the letter J.

4. A female architecture student prevented a Manhattan skyscraper from collapsing in the 1970s when she caught a massive design flaw. It was a student called Diane Hartley. Read more on 99percentinvisible.org

 

5.  Paper bags aren’t any better for the environment than plastic ones.

Fiction: Many believe that paper bags are more environmentally friendly than plastic bags because they are made from a renewable resource, can biodegrade, and are recyclable. Fact: Plastic shopping bags outperform paper bags environmentally – on manufacturing, on reuse, and on solid waste volume and generation.

6. Nestle is facing a lawsuit in the U.S. alleging that its Poland Spring brand is “common groundwater” rather than spring water, which the suit claims makes the marketing of Poland Spring water a “colossal fraud.”

3 Ingredients Soufflé Cheesecake (Japanese Cotton Cheesecake)

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 2.49.37 PM
Ingredients
3 eggs
120g cream cheese
120g white chocolate (any type of chocolate can be substituted here, up to and including very dark chocolate, but the white chocolate creates a lovely pale cake, obviously darker chocolate will result in a chocolate cake!)

Method
Crack and separate the eggs, keeping the yolks to one side and chilling the white for as long as possible before using them. Chilling the whites helps them to remain very stable when beaten. Preheat the oven to 170°C – at this point in the video, viewers get their first glimpse of the above-mentioned talking oven when it informs her that ‘the oven will be ready for use in six minutes’! Using a double boiler with water in the bottom pan, melt the chocolate until it is a smooth paste. A double boiler works to diffuse the heat from the hot plate, allowing the chocolate to melt without burning

Whip the chilled egg whites until they form stiff peaks and will not fall out of the bowl when it is inverted. Returning to the chocolate, which is still in the double boiler, add the cream cheese, stirring it well and allowing it to soften with the heat and mix smoothly into the chocolate. Next, add the three egg yolks which you separated out earlier and mix them in well to the chocolate and cream cheese mixture.

Put the mixture into a well-oiled pan. Ochikeron uses oiled paper fitted inside a small cake tin. This will enable the cake to shrink down smoothly as it cook, sliding down the sides of the cake tin instead of sticking and causing the cake to break or crack. When the mixture is in the pan, gently lift up and then drop the pan – just a couple of inches – to help the mixture settle and remove any large air-bubbles. Again, too much vigour at this step could result in a flattened cake. Stand the cake tin on a deep baking tray and pour some water onto the baking tray.

NB: the water does not touch the cake mixture, rather, it creates a moat around the cake tin. Pop the baking tray into the oven and bake the cake at 170°C for 15 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 160°C for a further 15 minutes. Finally, switch the oven off but leave the cake inside for a final 15 minutes. A food blog, Epicurious, has experimented a little with the cooking process and have discovered that instead of two 15 minutes sessions at differing heats, the cake can be cooked at 176.67°C (350°F) for thirty minutes. This results in an evenly cooked cake, with no browning taking place, which is, say Epicurious, the idea of the different cooking heats. Epicurious also leave the cake in the switched off oven for the final 15 minutes.

The Easiest Way To Make a Mug Cake

I thought this was pretty cool. Going to send to the Grandkids they will probably have fun doing this.

Now if that was me I would be putting ice-cream and caramel on top or Maple syrup. If you are a real sugar addict then maybe chocolate chips or smarties, either way looks tasty and easy.

Chocolate Cheese Cake

I consider this only a small OOPS! if you are breaking that New Years resolution. Because it is Low Fat! and Low Cal!. Well thats what they say, I guess if you eat the whole cake it is still going in the mouth and probably the rest of the year on the hips.
Oh Well life is too short. Hmmm 16 slices in this cake. For me that is pushing it, more like 8 slices, but that is just me. If I am going to be naughty I will be naughty in a big way. Anyway it looks delicious and worth a try and if you are stronger than me you will eat it 1/16th at a time.
