Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

 

Burnt Sugar Cake


cakes, desserts

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup boiling water
2/3 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, separated
3 cup sifted cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk

In a small, heavy skillet or saucepan, heat the 3/4 cups of sugar over medium heat. Lowerthe heat to medium low as a syrup forms, and stir frequently, breaking up the sugar lumps with the back of a spoon. Cook for about 30 minutes, or until a brown syrup forms and the mixture begins to smoke. Very gradually stir in the 3/4 cup of boiling water and remove from heat. Cool thoroughly. Reserve 1/2 cup of the syrup for the cake, the remaining is for the frosting. Preheat the oven to 375F.. In a mixer bowl, cream the butter and the 1 Cup of sugar together until light (about 3 minutes.) Gradually beat in the 1/2 cup of the burnt sugar syrup. Add the vanilla and the egg yolks 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and the salt. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk and beat until smooth. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold in whites by hand then pour the batter into two 8 inch greased pans. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool and frost with either Burnt Sugar 7 Minute or Burnt Sugar Buttercream frosting.
