Icecream cake

I love icecream, but I'm horrible when it comes to baking. I found the recipe online a few months ago, yesterday I decided to try it for the first time, thought it would be an exciting "experiment", as it's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Icecream cake Recipe

Ingredients

500 g of your favourite icecream
190 g flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 dl chopped chocolate of your choice

Directions

1. Place the ice cream in a bowl and let it stand until it is completely melted (I left mine in the fridge to melt).
2. When the icecream has melted, preheat the oven at 175 degrees.
3. Add the flour and baking powder to the melted icecream, mix thoroughly.
4. Stir in the chopped chocolate.
5. If you do not have a teflon baking pan, it may be good to line the pan with baking paper before placing the dough in it, or use a baking dish.
6. Place the dough in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes. Prick/test with a skewer or wooden stick to make sure it is not sticky inside.
7. Allow to cool before cutting it.

Notes

I doubled the measurements for the size of the baking pan that I used.
Don't make the same mistake as I did and put it in the fridge afterwards without covering it or putting it in a plastic box as this "dries" it out. I used smarties instead of chopped chocolate, they sunk to the bottom of the cake, and the colours all disappeared. All in all it was a good experiment, will definately be making it again, especially if I can find diabetic icecream in the stores again.

Herbs:
Oregano
Fennel
Flaked Parsley

Directions

Use sauce pan, add water, use wooden spoon to keep everything happy.

add chopped bacon, some salt, put burner on.

getting hot add sliced carrots, now when boiling add zucchini reason why zucchini should boil after you added herbs reason being that zucchini easy food cook and it gets rather soggy.

add herbs, why I chose these three, because Oregano is good for immune system, Fennel good for stomach, and Parsley is good combo with these two herbs it like mint for your mouth.

take off heat your done, after you added enough salt to taste preference. if tastes good then your ready for eating.

Notes

If your truly sick this soup will help you recover, nose, mouth and pretty much make you feel better, what would been better, if you added some onions, and some celery. I couldn't get any because I don't have any money.

This would chicken soup re-placer, recommended to use turkey if you don't like bacon.

MOJITO CUBANO

This is one of the most consumed drinks by tourism in Cuba, and obvious by the Cubans, a rich cocktail prepared with rum, and a lot of Cuban flavor I hope you enjoy it

MOJITO CUBANO Recipe

Ingredients

The first thing we are going to do is look for a good good Ron, strong if it is the Habana Club brand, much better, preferably a 3 year old. But it can also be worth another white rum of good quality.
It is necessary to look for mint leaves luckily now we find them in any supermarket in the refrigerated section. There is no mojito without mint. The lime is also very important, and can not be substituted for lemon since it would completely change the flavor. Water with gas or soda and sugar are the last ingredients that we will need.
And here with the recipe
Ingredients for the Cuban mojito: After looking for the good Ron, then we are looking for the mint twigs, luckily in Cuba they are in the portals, either in avandonados places, because it is a wild plant, but I think that in your country you can find it in any market. Are needed
1. 2 sprigs of mint or peppermint,
the second is the zucar, in Cuba the brown sugar is used a lot, really, it is advisable to do this with white sugar, it is softer
2. teaspoons of sugar (to consumer taste, but only two are recommended)
3. The juice of 1 lime
4. 45 ml (more or less) of white Ron
5. A bit of crushed or crushed ice
6. Soda or sparkling water to fill 2/3 of the glass

Directions

Preparation of this classic cocktail.
Cut the limes in half. We are going to use the juice of one lime per drink. We squeeze the limes in a glass.
We add 2 teaspoons of sugar and mix well.
Add the 2 sprigs of mint in the glass, whole, it has to be with stem and everything and gently squeeze the branches with a spoon, enough to release the essential oils of the mint. Be careful not to break the leaves.
insert the crushed ice into the glass halfway up or down.
We add the soda to fill about 2/3 of the glass.
It's time to pour the rum. We start with the amount marked and we try and increase depending on how strong we like the mojito.
Mix everything well and decorate with mint leaves. It can be taken with a straw if you like.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we Cubans do, delicious cocktail for the delights of your palate

Notes

These ingredients are for a glass of mojito.
