Oreo and Caramel Popsicles.

Good evening everybody.

Long busy day since early morning guess Sumner events started already!
Was invited to a big family breakfast gathering at my uncle’s house and as usual I love to bring a special dessert or dish with me so today’s pick was something new, Oreo and Caramel Popsicle.

Though recipe is very easy and simple but it’s a bit messy process specially dipping in chocolate and arranging them in a nice arrangement.

Oreo ones consists of crushed Oreo (24 pieces)  with two tablespoons of heavy cream all mixed well then formed into balls, freeze for two hours then dipped in chocolate.

Caramel ones consists of sweetened condensed milk cooked well till thick and caramelized mixed with plain or Lotus biscuits.

Taste was great but I’m not pleased with final look, next time I’ll decorate them differently,guess process needs more patience 😀

wpid-wp-1442144883392.jpg

Hello everybody.

Two lovely friends came to visit this morning and since I woke up so early today I decided to bake some ka3ek.

A small simple breakfast with minted tea,I always feel good about myself when I bake breads don’t know why, guess it’s the smell maybe.

Dough ingredients :
* 6 and extra half cups flour.
* 2 tablespoons oil.
* 1 tablespoon instant yeast.
* 2 tablespoons sugar.
* 2 1/2 cups lukewarm water.
* 2 teaspoons salt.
* 1/2 cup milk.
* some sesame seeds.
* some semolina to sprinkle under the Ka3ek.

* Mix water,yeast and sugar and leave ten minutes till bubbles are formed.
* Mix flour,salt and oil then add yeast and water and knead well.
* leave in a warm place till it rises ( 1-2 hours)
* knead again then form it to loaf shape or place a metal ring inside to make a circle in the middle.
* Brush with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds in top.
* leave to rise again then bake in a well heated oven for 15 minutes.
