The HF cooking/baking thread!

Ok, cookers and bakers of HF - A thread to share your ideas, creations, recipes, and of course, photos!

I tend to bake more so than cook. Here are a few of my recent efforts

Cake Balls - The inside is a mixture of cake and icing and they are coated with chocolate.

Cake Pops - The same ingredients as the cake balls but presented a bit differently - On lillipop sticks and modelled as little cupcakes

Carrot Cake - I had been craving carrot cake for weeks and went on a blitz, making about 3 batches of carrot cupcakes and this carrot cake - of course with real deal cream cheese icing!

Looks so delicious!

Here's mine (I took the pic around a year ago), not very appetizing picture but still. I can also share two of my favorite baking recipes:

So, recipe 1: Rhubarb pie (the picture above but rhubarb is replaced with lingonberry in it)

4 to 5 rhubarbs (you can replace rhubarbs with some sour berriers like lingonberries if you want)
1 dl sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp lemon concentrate

Mix together and boil but don't add water or anything since rhubarbs or berries will exude liquid enough when boiling.

150 g margarine
1.5 dl sugar
1 egg
4 dl wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder

Whip margarine and sugar. Mix flour and baking powder and then add all ingredients together. Whisk lightly but don't knead. Take a baking tin (diameter around 25-30 cm) and pat the most of your dough as a flat "rug" in it. Form sides slightly higher than the rest of the rug so your filling won't drain out of that base when you finally add it. Pour filling onto the base, sprinkle the rest of dough on it and throw into an oven. Bake in 200C 25-30 minutes.

If you want really thin base in your pie, you can also use a baking sheet like I did in the picture.

Recipe 2: Cake of the broken hearts (quark cake):

Suffering from a broken heart? Not anymore, I'm sure this sweet cake will speed up your healing a lot.

PART1 (dry ingredients):
5 dl wheat flour
4 dl sugar
3/4 dl cocoa
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp baking soda

Mix part 1 ingredients together

PART2 (wet ingredients):
2 eggs
ca 256 g quark
½ dl milk
150 g margarine

Mix part 2 ingredients together. Add mixed part 1 and mixed part 2 together and pour in a cake tin. Bake in 175C 60-70 minutes.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
