Cocomut Cake


This recipe comes from a good friend, Priscilla Nei.   I am not sure where she got it, but it is really great.  As you can see below, the condensed milk and coconut cream are “infused” into the cake.  This makes the final product incredibly moist.  Whenever I make this cake, people literally fight over the last pieces.

I wish I could say that this is a really healthy creation, but I think “indulgent” is a better word. After calculating the total calories of one whole cake and dividing that by 16 slices,  I decided that it is not prudent to communicate the numbers to my readers.  Best that you try this great recipe and see if you even care about calories.

Green Curry, Naan, Basmati Rice and Spicy Cabbage Salad

Britain is a very livable place, especially outside the big cities. I have always loved wandering the towns and villages. The English, Welsh and Scottish countrysides are unbelievable, especially in summertime. All the rain and the very temperate climate creates a green that you see nowhere else (except maybe in Wisconsin in the Spring). (more…)

Use Extreme Caution with One-Handed Pie Crust October 5, 2011

My friend, Howard, just called.  He was working on the One-Handed Pie Crust (see earlier post www.bravadocooking.com/2011/09/23/315/), and his girlfriend was in the kitchen with him.  At first he used his free hand to hold a glass of wine as instructed in our post, but then he decided on the other option of putting the free arm around his significant other while continuing to work the dough.  We have spoken before about Bravado cooking skills making women swoon and I am not sure if this is what happened or if he was unclear on the concept of what he was kneading.  In any case, there was apparently flour and butter everywhere, but the dough never got made.  I was unable to get any more information if anything was “made”, but I would say that the writing is probably on the wall.  In any case, let this be a warning to all – the kitchen is meant for cooking and you should use that free hand only for wine.

All of this reminds me of that famous kitchen scene in the 1981 version of “The Postman Always Rings Twice” with Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange.  Luckily, YouTube has it – go to  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgMmLrxbLc8 and watch at your own risk.
